- “What an amazing two days of learning and growing from a dynamic, engaging facilitator! [She] brought the heat to our sessions and I’m ready for more! Excited to bring these concepts to my school family.”
- "I attended the Teacher Bootcamp in August [2023]. It was invigorating and truly an unforgettable workshop. The level of engagement and excitement from the teacher was better than any other training facilitator I’ve ever experienced. They had a passion for education and a natural talent for empowering people to open up and become vulnerable. The connections I made with others in the room would have never happened if it weren’t for our teacher and the overall program creating a space for us to flourish. I learned so much about what it means to be a coach and how to ask people strength finding questions, and to really be a vehicle for change by creating partnerships – which is relevant in every aspect of my life."
