Free Spirit Publishing (website and teaching tools)

Whether at home, school, or out in the world, all kids face challenges in their lives. No matter how many choices, changes, and opportunities young people encounter, Free Spirit has had the same mission for more than 30 years: to provide children and teens—and the adults who care for and about them—with the tools they need to think for themselves, overcome challenges, and make a difference in the world.

Marco Products (website and teaching resources)

 Established in 1977, Marco Products, Inc is a publisher and supplier of lesson books, activity books, games, DVDs and resources for guidance counselors, educators and other professionals who work with children. Elementary, middle and high school professionals can find practical ready to use materials on topics such as character education, careers, social skills, bullying, anger management, conflict, grief, self-esteem, and much more. Marco is the outgrowth of three elementary counselors exchanging ideas among themselves. With no “prep” time, small budgets, and large caseloads, we pooled our resources in order to have materials.
