Testimonials

Joanna Murray

Thank you so much for all of the wonderful strategies and tips!! I am so excited to bring so many of them to the classroom this school year.

Heather Yordy

I just want to express additional gratitude for the training today. I signed up for the July session because I thought, ‘you’ll be getting back into school mode,’ but I haven’t been. Last year was challenging and exhausting. As I’ve thought about going back to school, I’ve just felt tired. Today’s focus on the students, the community, brought me right back to my ‘why.’ Thank you. This is EXACTLY what I need to get my heart back into alignment. Looking forward to the work this afternoon and the next few days of learning!

Sara Zion

Thank you for creating a welcoming and engaging space for me to learn. I felt very respected and comfortable. I appreciate your kindness, patience, and positivity.
