“In my five years of teaching, this was the first conference I’ve attended that was engaging, entertaining, and productive. I had such a good time.”
“I know today was hectic and crazy with the amount of teachers out, but I wanted to thank you for providing us with a full day with Kathy. It was a very productive day. I am actually excited about the last ten days of school, not because of the countdown to summer but for the ideas to implement in my classroom. Today was what I wish every day of PD was like. Thank you for providing that to us. Kathy and Sarah are amazing, and I am glad I have finally begun to open my eyes and heart to the things they have to share.”
