I had no idea I would enjoy the series so much! I was excited to learn, but I would say it FAR exceeded my expectations! Well worth the investment!

I took pages and pages of notes, and have already implemented so many ideas! Julie and Kristie were so warm and helpful-- this class is perfect--even for someone like me who has been teaching adults for decades.

This class was the most rewarding, amazingly resourceful, and the best professional development I’ve had in years!

Delivering PD Like a Boss
