During her one-hour presentation, I loved how she got more than 200 students to feel deeply connected to the material — by asking for a “show of hands” and encouraging them to answer questions and offer their opinions. As a parent and lifelong educator, I was dazzled by how she completely engaged and inspired our students.”
