“TESA is absolutely terrific to work with! I really appreciated their willingness to work in a collaborative fashion to meet our needs. They developed a menu of exercises that are creative, participatory and effective. It’s clear that TESA has a great depth of experience and expertise, coupled with good listening skills and sensitivity to the complexity of our training needs… I highly recommend TESA to anyone who is interested developing great training materials.”

“TESA created engaging lessons with easy to follow lesson plans, and really understood the goals of our program. They made the process of making lessons and teaching them smooth and fun. I appreciated that they were reliable, enthusiastic, great listeners, and very creative. The lessons they created are interactive and build progressively – our students really engage with the content and leave better connected to the ideas and each other”

-Mieka Briejer, Pinchot University

“I have had the pleasure of collaborating with TESA on several projects over the course of the last couple years, and I have continually found them to be an utter delight to work with. Their commitment to social and economic justice, their passion for participatory and democratic education, and their overall integrity set them apart from many other educators and consultants.”

-Morgan Crawford, Director of Education, NASCO

“Our members were so pleased and impressed with the final product of Loud & Proud! It’s rewarding for us to see people engage with the game and come up with their own creative ways of using it to start conversations both inside and outside of our organization. The TESA team was a pleasure to work with, and did a great job of listening and tailoring to our needs every step of the way. Regardless of what you do, TESA is sure to have something to offer to amplify your work, build tools for collaboration, and create opportunities for education.”
