  • “Participants can rest assured they will leave a Libby Serkies led workshop or training with all the knowledge, information, materials and resources they expected when they walked in.  Libby’s professionalism, level of preparedness, and presentation skills are exemplary, and, you can always count on a few laughs along the way!”

  • "Libby Serkies is an enthusiastic and knowledgeable presenter that understands the importance of helping learners create their own meaning about mathematical concepts and ideas.  She has techniques that any instructor can immediately apply to their classroom."

          Brooke Istas
          Community College Math Instructor

  • “Libby Serkies is a light of knowledge and teaching strategies in the often dreary world of teaching underprepared adults for their next steps”
          Maggie Wolf
          Director of Adult Education
          Kankakee Community College

  • "Libby is the teacher in the room who gets it, which is so refreshing. She is an asset to both fields of adult education and numeracy. Her presentation style is encouraging, informative and uplifting. She knows her stuff!"
    Cynthia Bell
    Numeracy & Youth Specialist

  • "Something that makes Libby's presentations shine is that they are simultaneously clearly well researched and very accessible to all participants. She knows her stuff, and is referencing a depth of reading and research, at the same time  everyone in the room is engaged and comfortable, asking questions and sharing ideas.
    While the presentation gave me immediate ideas I wanted to use in my classroom, it also gave me a window into further learning I wanted to pursue about instruction. I think professional development opportunities often either give an idea you can use immediately or one that is for more profound consideration. Libby's presentation was striking in that it did both."
