"Stoll and Giddings (both, Don't Ever Stop LLC) offer a compelling argument for today's struggling public schools... With "proficiency for all" as their guiding light, Stoll and Giddings provide the steps for and discuss the challenges of creating a culture of continuous improvement from planning to implementation. Most impressively, and unlike many authors recommending substantial changes to public education, Stoll and Giddings have embedded their recommendations in the actual transformation of a school district, including reflections of principals, teachers, students, and parents. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All readership levels. -- K. Layton, University of Arkansas at Little Rock"

Choice Magazine Recommendation

""Just wanted to share with you a few things I saw in classes today. You would be proud! I also heard teachers talking about affinity diagrams and making their own classroom shared vision. It’s catching on! Good Work!""

Literacy Coach Fall 2013

"YOU COPPER AND GENE ARE AMAZING!!! I have had the best week. We have our SOP for decision-making and groundwork for our Vision, our Code of Collaboration and rubric… OMG!! This is magic… You are both my heroes!!!"

Elem Principal Fall 2013

""Don't Ever Stop has helped to instill a sense of urgency and empowerment through their monthly consulting visits. Stoll and Giddings got to know who we were as professionals and the bond that was created was collegial as well as human. Their honest and timely feedback was critical in the development of our corrective action plans. Their ability and willingness to work after hours, through phone conferences and via e-mail, helped make our planning more efficient, reflective and effective. The close professional relationship established between Don't Ever Stop and our school leadership has been a refreshing and encouraging reminder that goals can be reached through communication, collaboration and diligence. And we are not finished yet.""

Instructional Coach Summer 2014

"I didn’t really expect to write you, but I just can’t help but be SUPER excited after today. My plan was to do the shared vision with my students and I almost abandoned it this morning because I was scared of what would happen. Despite my reservations, I continued on, and it has been just fabulous. The students have been very receptive, and they’ve come up with some really great stuff. I am just so pleased and energized!"
