I just completed the first seminar. It has been wonderfully done. I truly enjoyed it. Nellie, through your seminars, both online and in person, I feel I have become a more effective teacher. Thank you for that.
Nellie, thank you for creating these online video seminars! What a great way to connect throughout the school year. It is always powerful and motivating to be a seminar participant, but the availability of your videos will be an amazing resource for teachers.
I watched your videos and I love them. Your passion for teaching is contagious.
