“I thought the workshop was outstanding. As I said at the end, when students read, write, think, and talk, learning occurs. Your workshop added movement to this and everyone seemed to enjoy the session very much. My hope is that there is a direct impact on the students in the classrooms represented.”
–Kevin Smith, Chief Officer for District-Wide Early College & Professional Development, Duplin County

“First of all I just want to say Thank You!!!!! I really enjoyed every session of the workshops. I loved the rhythm games that were introduced to us and plan on using them to help my pre-k students with rhyming words. I will also be using the movement piece to help them understand personal space. There was nothing that did not have value in it. I can and will use every part as often as I can. This year is almost over but watch out next year I am ready!!!! … I look forward to the next part of the series.”
–Sarah C Bailey, Mary Washington Howe Pre-K, Wilmington

“I enjoyed your class and the movement within. I used the theater standards with force and motion today within my first grade classroom and the children had the best time acting out ‘The Enormous Turnip.’ The role cards made them all feel like they were in charge. I plan to do some more tomorrow and for the rest of my teaching career. Thanks for the excitement you’ve added to my classroom.”
–Tracy Cruse, Duplin County School first grade teacher

“I have already used some of the ideas in my classroom. My students have played the control game and acted out the butterfly life cycle. We have also counted money using the addition and subtraction activity we did in the workshop. The information I received on Tuesday has and will continue to impact my teaching and I look forward to applying many more of your ideas and activities in my classroom.”
–Taylor Edwards, Duplin County 2nd grade teacher

“I have attended many teacher workshops as I have 12 years high school teaching experience and yours made me excited to get back into the classroom and try many of your ideas. Please keep in contact and let me know when you have your next workshop. I will be there.”
–Sarah Dehn
