" Dr. Karges-Bone is widely recognized by educators as THE miracle-working
"SuperWoman" when it comes to assessment and accreditation tasks and issues. If it is a new program, who better to lead the energetic professional
development necessary? If it is a program needing to be refined or fine-tuned, she has the sensible, practical strategies that will cause
improvement. If you are on a "sinking ship," she has the keen, insightful ideas to get you back afloat and steered in the right direction. In my
experience, her capabilities are unparalleled. A personal promise--you will applaud her enthusiasm, stamina, and sincere helpfulness. "
-- Dr. Jerald Bullock

" It is a rare opportunity to host a person who can “think on her feet” and field every question sent her way. Dr. Linda Karges-Bone entertained and enlightened both parents and educators during her two presentations at The Regis School. While Regis enrolls only boys, Dr. Bone nevertheless shared her “pink and blue” thoughts so that every base was covered. The range of her research, contacts, and knowledge is impressive. She impeccably models how to teach as she nurtures and inspires confidence in her audiences."
