WHAT SCHOOL PARTNERS SAY?
KIND WORDS ABOUT DON
"The training was excellent. The trainer adjusted the times and carried the morning training over into the afternoon for part of the session. This was an excellent move as our Principals were very involved in the morning session. The presentation was tailored to fit the audience. Great job."
"Don was extremely knowledgeable and sensitive to the needs of our group/groups. He modeled unpacking the standards on a case-by-case basis, which, was enlightening and impressive to witness! His ability to answer questions on varied topics/levels illustrated his mastery of the content. We are so grateful for the partnership."
"Great training....looking forward to the next two components! Great coaching session. My teachers enjoyed being able to ask questions and get clarification."
