What Educators have said
"The practical "hands-on", real world techniques and skills presented were excellent and really usable at the classroom/school level. I thought is very well presented and liked the interactive setup that allowed for input and immediate feedback as well. The speaker did a wonderful job in educating and informing and also avoiding that "talk down personae" He was truly prepared and a knowledgeable scholar. I benefited greatly from this conference and am so appreciative to have been included in its presentation today. i will certainly recommend it to others in need of additional resources to deal with these pressing issues."
