What I think is important is that your ideas are successful with students and that you quickly engage them, they learn to trust your work, knowledge and feedback. I think your breakdown of teaching sequence is clear and easy to follow and you sell it in your presentations. The feedback from my Grade 5 class after today’s workshop was very positive.

St Columba's Catholic Primary School

We were absolutely transfixed by your Presentation. I have never had so many Members approach me to thank me for finding you for our club. Quite a group of us always have coffee downstairs after our Meeting & we all agreed that we were indeed very privileged to have you share your story with us.

I have been lucky enough to find some very interesting people to speak to us this year; they all have been great but you were by far the most talented & accomplished speaker we have had – not just this year but over my time at our View club.

Moreton Bay View Club

​Thank you so much for the stories and for coming and taking the time to work with our students. I have heard many positive stories and comments from staff around the school and I look forward to continuing our journey next year.
