Workshop Testimonials

"You were great, enthusiastic, great content, interactive."

"Great class. I liked the open conversation and discussion. Very interactive, made it easier to understand bullying. I know about bullying and how kids act on it, but not how to act upon it as a coach. This class helped and was very informative."
