Great energy and passion!

I learned how to be more positive, intentional, consistent, and happy when it comes to working and teaching our youth. You have great energy and passion, I try and use that same style everyday because it works, people feed off of positive energy.

Refreshing!

I just wanted to say how refreshing this face-to-face session was. It was so nice to not have to take the standard K-12 practices and tweak it for adult learners, especially in a corrections setting.
