Here’s What Folks Have to Say About Jennifer!
“So grateful for an excellent knowledgeable trainer and to see my team embrace the change!”
“I really appreciated the training. Coming from an elementary/primary background, the idea of theme based learning wasn’t foreign to me. I just needed to see how this approach would fit with older students. Thank you for your time, knowledge, and excellent workshop design! ”
“This was by far the best PD I’ve received in my 11 years here. Exciting and overwhelming at the same time but definitely reinforces a lot of the ideas we have been trying to promote at our school for the last couple years. Jen, you are amazing! Thanks!”
