You renewed my passion for teaching and my faith in the teaching profession. Before I attended your workshop, I had begun to develop doubts. Everyone who heard you was clearly excited about learning...thank you!

Great sense of humor! She presented the session with such devotion to helping children that it inspired me to try even harder to reach children. Abby is now reading and I especially liked the handouts explaining follow-up techniques for use at home.

This Connie Hebert is fantastic! I've been teaching for 17 years. She was the most impressive. Any school would treasure her help with their children. Lorrie Rader, Teacher Missoula, MT '07
What you said in our course chat about "never accepting the possibility that a child CANNOT improve" is exactly what I told my principal about one of my students. I begged her to let me have more time with him and she is willing to do that.You have been inspiring in just two weeks. I have never felt this way about something a professor said and I have three degrees past my bachelors. I will cherish your words and they will remind me constantly to never let a student fall to the side!!!!! You are truly an educator-
