I purchased your Science Cut Ups at CAST. They are really nice. Thank you for your hard work!

7-29-16 Janet Mora of McAllen ISD

I attended the training for 1st grade. Just wanted to let you know I really enjoyed the workshop. I thought it was the perfect length of time and topics/ideas were well-thought out. I loved your approach to teaching science . . . lots of hands-on, stressing vocabulary, and teaching kids to be uber-observant. You answered all my questions and gave scientific reasons behind your answers. I love it when a presenter doesn't just give you an answer but explains "why" without being asked. Great Workshop!
