Feedback from Workshop Attendees

“Fantastic presenter, incredibly relevant techniques and tools! I’m taking more away from this single session than I have at any other conference or PD session I’ve been to! The presentation and materials were outstanding. I’m already sharing what I have learned with other faculty members. This was truly the best workshop I’ve attended. The instructor was knowledgeable and entertaining. I could listen to her teach all day.”

“Jenn was very knowledgable and made time for all questions. Her enthusiasm is infectious. The information I learned today will revolutionize my communication and efficiency at work. A game changer. Jenn is outstanding as a presenter and teacher. I can’t wait to start using these skills”

“Jenn found a good balance between helping the individuals in the class and offering instruction to the group as a whole. It’s not easy to provide valuable instruction to such a diverse group of teachers. Hearing from the others in the class, it sounds as if Jenn succeeded in that.”

“This was AMAZING and so helpful. I feel like I have a whole toolbox of things that I feel comfortable using right away and some that I have gained some exposure to and need to practice on my own. I feel like this has been worthwhile PD.”

“This has been one of the very best workshops I’ve ever attended at GHS, if not the best. Everything I learned is practical and will have real impact on what I can do in the classroom. Mrs. Judkins is really what made the experience work; I’ve never heard someone talk about computer programs in a way that’s fun and clear for even an hour, and she filled two days.”
