“Mandy was simply amazing. It’s funny—when you do a training like this, there is always concern. The size, the location, the layout, etc. I will tell you it could not have been better for my teachers and Claremore Public Schools. Great organization of information, presentation had the background necessary without going overboard and was transitioned into the standards and essential elements. Mandy was a perfect fit for us. We want her back in the spring. We also want to be able to utilize her throughout the year at times, maybe even visit her school. Right person, at the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing ... perfect.”
“Ms. Barrett was able to take a difficult subject and quickly break the information down into step-by-step pieces. She was friendly, informative, and able to explain both the why and how. I look forward to working with her again.”
