Comments from Educators who experienced this seminar:
"I learned how captivating storytelling can be. It was a wonderful and inspirational way of teaching children while certainly keeping their attention. I was especially pleased with the way you presented the concerns of special education teachers. We as teachers so often forget that special Ed students have ways of learning that we can easily address. Thank you so much."
