Client impact:

From Greenville County Schools, South Carolina: “I learned so much more today about cultural diversity. I love how passionate Frances and the other speaker was. I have let some coworkers make comments about students and have shared my views and felt shut down. This workshop has helped me feel more passionate as I did when I first started teaching.  I’ve been teaching for 26.5 years and I am not done yet, loving and nurturing my students.  Thanks for validating my professional and cultural diversity views.  A+ workshop.  You were awesome.” “As always, your session was exceptional.  I think you opened eyes to some biases that had not been acknowledged.  The info on cultural proficiency was especially powerful.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!” “Loved when you tweaked my questions for my parent/student information forms and explaining why that wording was better. This workshop gave not only information/ideas to implement at school, but allowed us to discuss with teachers from different settings. We shared, modified and received “reasons for” explanations. Love the humor!”
