What Your Colleagues Say About Your Presenter

“The combination of Bryce’s classroom management techniques and the emphasis on comprehensible input worked like magic.”

“The biggest game changer from Bryce’s seminar was the consistent use of classroom procedures. I am implementing many this year. They save time, but more importantly, they spare me a lot of aggravation.”

“Bryce is an engaging presenter.”

“I immediately implemented some of the ideas Bryce presented. My students and I are using passwords, classroom jobs, the goodbye ritual, and races to see who puts papers in alphabetical order. I can’t tell you how much these seemingly small things have changed my teaching life!”

I learned more usable strategies in Bryce’s seminar than I did in all of my education classes put together.”

“Bryce is easy to relate to since he is a current world language teacher and knows what works and what doesn’t.

“Bryce is well organized and approachable.”
