was the most beneficial professional development opportunity I
have ever experienced in twenty years as an educator. Keep up
the wonderful research and continue sharing your knowledge." --

Kathie, By now you must know the impact you had on all educators
who attended last Wednesday. In addition to our staff we had 43
teachers/vice principals and principals from our quadrant, who
attended, along with our SO. Your delivery was engaging, based
on solid and proven best practice and reinforced the pivotal role
teachers play in the classroom. This is by far the best PD we’ve
had. I will be looking at securing some of your resources once
this busy spell is over. Thanks again, Valerie Nelson, Principal
L'Amoreaux C.I. Toronto, Ontario
were marvelous!! Thanks so much for being part of our 10th Annual
CAAHE Conference last week! I do believe that you were the hit
of the conference. I certainly heard quite a number of members
saying that they plan to get in touch with you to confirm presentations
at their own institutions. You made a subject that I'm sure many
people were interested in, but very hesitant about, extremely
interesting and informative. Thanks again for helping us out!
I hope to work with you again in the future." - Linda S. Knutson,
Director of Academic Development, Institute for Professional Development
was so fortunate to be in your workshop this morning in Elizabethtown.
Pooped though I am, when I got home I headed straight for my computer
so I could visit your website. As a teacher, a parent, and a learner,
your message makes incredible sense. I am fascinated by the brain
research, and so hope that I will be able to put what I learned
today to work in my classroom. We have already shared our feelings
with our principal, and it is my hope that someday (next year?)
we will have you for two days. Thanks for the information, the
humor, the practical ideas, and the encouragement. I believe that
I will be a better teacher and mom because of what I learned today."
- Angela Carter, teacher.
can we thank you enough....the summary of teachers' comments were
excellent." M. Saiz, Program Specialist, Bakersfield City School
workshop generated more positive feedback from our staff than
any other workshop I can remember!!! Especially wonderful, give
our tendency to look at inservices as a necessary evil, but a
waste of time. Many thanks, much respect, and much admiration
for your common sense ideas, straight-forward and humorous delivery
of it, and being so accommodating to us." Delise Neely, Chairperson,
Luxemburg-Casco Development Council.
gave me much food for thought. The physiology made it interesting.
It was even better than the book 'Emotional Intelligence.' Of
course your humorous delivery was the key for me."Susan Harbertson,
for the ideas in your workshop. I have been searching for an equitable
way to teach to all the levels of students that I have thrown
into my classroom. By implementing your ideas into my lesson plans,
I now have a tool to allow the average student to feel successful
and motivate the high achiever to expand their mind by selecting
challenging ways to express their knowledge of the subject study".
Jack Rapier, Head Track Coach, Manti High School.
wanted to just drop you a quick line to let you & all of those,
out there who might be somewhat 'doubting Thomas's, after your
seminar dealing with Brain Based Information & Layered Curriculum,
our entire Academic Staff has made the adjustment from our old
line conventional Teaching Methodology & after only one (
1 ) week of use, are seeing dramatic results. WE so much appreciate
your caring & sharing with us all of this wonderful method
to reach all levels of students. Keep up the good work. Sincerely,
