Happy Math & Music Monday and Welcome To Ally Dog Depot!  I’m so glad you’re here! Can you believe that it was one year ago that we launched the Ally Dog Depot website!?! What an exciting year!

I believe the time spent with your child is the most powerful gift you can give, not only to your child, but also to YOURSELF.

I am passionate about helping others have the tools they need to make the most of intentional, quality time with their child.

Fun Fact

“I don’t think quantity time is a special as quality time with your family.” – Reba McEntire

Quick background… I’m Erin, co-creator of All Aboard, the Music and Math Connection and Ally Dog Depot.  When we started, I was mommy to amazing, wonderful, crazy twin six-year-old girls, a super cute Yorkie puppy (who was 16 years old) and wife to my very best friend, my rock, my husband with a wacky nickname…Pody!

I am also part of an INCREDIBLE team of people who are truly passionate about using music in a meaningful way to change the world.  We believe music is powerful and can shape learning in all kinds of spectacular ways. 

All of the ideas in the videos and activities on Ally Dog Depot come from a collection of our experiences as educators.  Collectively that’s over 100+ years in education!  Together we have developed and tested a unique curriculum that has been used in schools over the last 10+ years. 

But our dream has always been to share these incredible learning techniques with EVERY child.  This is why we need YOU!  

So, thank you for signing up.  Thank you for trusting me with your inbox. Thank you for wanting to take that next step with your child to help them develop a love of problem solving and learning.  I promise you won’t regret it!
