What Your Colleagues Say About Your Presenter
"Kelly has so much information and is so passionate about the material that one can't help but get excited to go try everything as soon as possible. There was something for absolutely every teacher in my school. I will be sharing everything that I can, not just to get our students up to speed from having such a non-normal school last year, but moving forward for 'regular' school years. I can't thank you enough!"
