A Fantastic Testimonial!by Janet Zadina on 10/04/17
(L: Kristi Barker, M.Ed, R: Dr. Zadina)
I recently received this amazing testimonial and felt like I just had to share. It is words like these that ensure me I am making a difference for very important people!
I have to admit that it is hard for me to be on the road. This particular location was two flights and an hour’s drive. But when I work with such fantastic teachers and I meet someone like this who is so dedicated, I know that it is all worth it. I am going to work as long as you let me and I physically can! I love teachers and am always thinking of my prior struggling students and how much they needed.
Dear Dr. Zadina,
I was overjoyed getting to spend my morning with you, my favorite neuroscientist BFF. As I told you this morning, I admire the work you are doing and treasure the wisdom and insight you provide to me. When I see your newsletter arrive in my inbox, I am a child on Christmas morning soaking in all the goodness you provide for educators (and parents) related to students and learning. Thank you for doing the hard work of making such a deeply complicated subject come to life in a meaningful and manageable way. My classroom is invigorated, my students are inspired and my passion for teaching is reignited each time I teach concepts like, Fire & Wire, Intention Statements, Multiple Pathways and so much more!
Thank you for providing me with tools to use in my classroom and focusing my eyes on research that I would otherwise never encounter. We are all better because of your dedication to students and learning.
