What people say

The real-time practice and practical tools were invaluable! I am very excited to examine the listening styles to see how they may transform my conversations and relationships with teachers. Becky was an amazing presenter. It is clear that she is knowledgeable, and I feel lucky to be apart of these training sessions. This is one of the best PD opportunities I’ve had in some time.


This is by far the best virtual experience I have attended for the last two years. I believe being with your own people and not strangers sets up for greater success of learning. I loved the coaching role play too!
