I personally thought it was incredibly helpful. How interactive it was. She did a great job of managing not only the time but the content, and making it really usable and functional for us. I would definitely high recommend it to anyone that's an educator, and to any administrator that's looking for something that can be really easily turned over the next days.

WOW! I'm so glad I decided to invest in myself and take Reverse the Adverse Online Training! feel more empowered and equipped to interact with my students in a more effective way. She is so inspirational, her class was engaging and interactive. There was so much information covered in just 2 hours. Her workbook will stay on my desk and will be the first thing I look at each work day!.

The training was awesome! Just really thought provoking, I was making mental notes and trying to focus at the same time. It was supportive, affirming and perspective shifting. So, two thumbs up... this was awesome!
