Quote from Jeff Pridie – Arts Educators of Minnesota President

“Your presentation was the talk of the whole day on Friday and well into Saturday.  Walking around and listening to conversations among conference participants and to hear your presentation mentioned as part of their conversation is what the conference is all about.  Teachers were discussing how to integrate, collaborations that could be built with in their buildings. It was the ‘think’ shift AEM was looking for that your keynote inspired. Again, thank you for your inspiring words and sharing that with Art Educators of Minnesota.”

Quote from a representative of the Shanghai Science Association of Young Talents

“We have to thank you again for your coming to Shanghai and presenting us such wonderful speeches! It was such a big success!”
