What are people saying...
"I just wanted to thank you for the passion you brought to our training day. In my 13 years of teaching, I cannot remember having any speaker that moved the audience in the way that you did. I heard countless colleagues mention that you are the BEST speaker we have had in a very long time. So many times we have speakers that try to teach us about the “latest and greatest” strategies. But you GET it!!!"
"Life is all about relationships and helping see our value and the value and potential in others. I am a teacher, but I also have a school counseling degree, so I have always believed in the power of relationships. Today, I saw some of the toughest “academic” focused teachers walk away with a new perspective about the power of relationships."
