Thank you Sr. Diane! We loved it. And we're super grateful to have had the chance to talk with you.

Loved this one! I think that lots of suggestions for kids are equally appropriate when teaching adults. I especially will keep in mind- how do we want to feel at the end of the class/project/whatever. Very important!


I wanna be in FCC! Such good 'Lessons Learned'. So immediately applicable. Can't wait for that book!
