2 ABOUT THE COMPANY Jason Forde and Dagan Ferrier are former teachers in San Antonio. They created Forde-Ferrier, L.L.C in 1998 to provide teachers, students, and parents the most comprehensive educational materials and teaching techniques designed to help all students master the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). Forde and Ferrier used these materials and techniques in their own classrooms, and the results were impressive. Their students consistently achieved pass rates of 100% and commended rates over 80% in all areas. Forde and Ferrier use research based methods to continually improve their high quality practice materials for all tested areas. A variety of writers contribute to provide comprehensive materials that challenge students, but most importantly, help them learn the skills they need to succeed. In addition to materials, Forde-Ferrier also continually improves its instructional methods, providing excellent professional development and training in mathematics, reading, writing, and science. These award winning workshops are designed to help teachers understand and effectively teach the essential skills students need to learn to be successful. Teachers leave the workshops confident that they can make sure all students master those skills. Forde and Ferrier have shared their methods with teachers throughout Texas, and their products and services have helped thousands of students achieve the highest levels of success on standardized tests. Forde and Ferrier strive to build ongoing relationships with teachers, students, and school districts. They truly believe in what they do and are excited when they help others succeed. Schools using their methods and materials have achieved high levels of success on TAAS, TAKS, and now STAAR tests.
