What participants are saying

“The content was excellent and extremely helpful for me in terms of working collaboratively with students as well as teachers. The way he explained the brain stuff was genius! It really helped me learn the dry stuff in a very positive way. I had to keep stopping to take my own notes because every sentence was meaningful and worthwhile. Thank you so much for this extremely helpful session!”
