“I found this to be an amazing experience that talks the talk as well as walks the walk. You offer real, hands-on learning of ideas and techniques for the classroom that will promote social change. I have pages of notes that are all applicable to my classroom.”
“This was amazing. I am inspired by your open-mindedness, the way you think big picture and by your resourcefulness and sharing.”
