It was great to receive this lovely note recently:
“Thank you so much for an inspiring and uplifting two days last week. It helps remind us what is important about teaching – the pupils and assisting them to take on active roles in their adult lives. The tools you have devised are very powerful: I have seen an instant shift in atmosphere and sense of purpose by implementing sitting in a circle without a desk in the way and using your templates for minutes etc. (not ones we devised ad hoc).
Thank you again (I still feel nurtured – and am passing this spirit down the line as we had home-made chocolate crispies last week).
Wishing you all the best and looking forward to receiving the tools.”
