The Meyer EFS Blog

Welcome to Our Blog

Both Kathy and I spend much our time away from what many think of as a traditional office setting. We visit programs and schools all over the country and sometimes abroad. We attend industry conferences and seminars, and have considerable experience working with families.

As we learn about innovative programming while in the field, about student life and pick up on new trends and parenting tips that we think can be helpful, we’ll add them here, to our blog. If you ever have any questions for us, feel free to reach out, anytime. We look forward to talking with you!
