Why does Branching Minds have such a devoted fan base? Because educators who use the platform day-to-day find so many little (and big!) tweaks designed to make life easier.
Branching Minds is different because it is built from the ground up to help teachers implement MTSS, and when teachers talk about what they need to get the job done, we listen.
Join us to learn about fan-favorite features that take work off your plate - these little details might not make the main menu, but they do make our Branching Minds partners smile!
