What Your Colleagues Say About Your Presenter

“Very insightful, and engaging strategies we can use immediately! Thank you so very much! We feel so ready to get back and support the students and staff at our school.

One of the most helpful and practical trainings I've attended in my 10 years of teaching.”

Wow! Cindy was absolutely amazing and a wealth of knowledge. She modeled all the best behavior and instructional practices while providing lots of time to practice the strategies ourselves. I feel like we have so much to take back to not only our classrooms but to the school community.”

We recommend all educators sign up for this institute.

“Cindy was an awesome facilitator! She brought together a bunch of ‘concepts' I've been told to use before and gave practical, concrete ways to implement them. She kept up the energy of the presentation and I'm leaving feeling more empowered as an educator.”

“Cindy provided us with supports and logical responses to support difficult students. THANK YOU!”

This was by far the most enjoyable and interactive seminar I have attended. The content is very relevant, and we are taking away many new strategies to implement with our students.”

“Excellent - just what we needed.”

“As a first-year teacher, I often feel like I have no idea what to do when I'm faced with these kinds of struggles. Now, I feel like I've added a whole series of phrases, tactics, and insight to my toolkit that will help me better connect with my students and move forward with more confidence.”
