The single best seminar I’ve ever attended in 18 years of teaching. Spirit lifting and practical!
I know Michele Borba and her work, and she has a proven track record that stands miles apart from other child experts. Using practical strategies, colorful anecdotes and wise insights, she shows us how to do what really matters most–to help our kids become good and caring human beings.
As part of our ongoing efforts to heighten the awareness of the dangers of gang life, we have worked closely with Dr. Borba’s materials. For two years, over 7,500 students were exposed to her program and the results have contributed to an overall reduction in violent crimes and school expulsions by 25.6%.
As a professional development consortium we work with over 130 presenters a year. Your workshop processes and strategies are excellent and are one reason we continue to include you in our program. The other reason is that participants demand your return.
Although the audience consisted of over 1000 participants in each session, Dr. Borba had the ability to speak to each individual. Her well-organized, informative and motivating talk touched everyone.
Grounded in solid research, her message has the potential to truly help parents help their children be more successful in school and in life.
I have always respected you as the best educational thinker in the field of self-esteem in the world. I am delighted that your thoughts will now be available to parents.
While many people in public life decry the lack of character and moral development among our kids, few take this concern further, into the realm of practical steps to address the issue in the lives of real children and youth. Michele Borba has done so.
The feedback we have been getting as a result of your presentation has been extremely positive. We may now have another solid opportunity to engage our parents and the communities at large in positive ways and develop initiatives in the areas of citizenship and character development.
I have never seen an audience rise to their feet in a standing ovation as I saw them do at the session I attended. Thank you for the contribution you have made to New Zealand educators.
