“On behalf of the faculty and staff of C.H. Friend Elementary School, I would like to thank you for bringing us your workshop.  As you understand so well, teaching can be an extremely stressful profession.  You message gave us many practical and inspirational ways to help manage stress on and off the job.  I have no doubt that our teachers will continue to reap the benefits of your message this coming school year and in the years to come.”
