“I took a bevy-full of education courses when I was in college. My degree says I’m a high school English teacher. But I must say, none of the classes I took in college ever came close to Kelly’s teacher training program…the training you provide is superb! It explains precisely what we are supposed to do, what we can expect our day to be like, who we should be connecting with and why, how we can get the children to focus from the first moments in the classroom, how we are to move from subject to subject, how we are to handle the different situations which can and will arise in the school, how to appear (and actually be) as professional and proficient as humanly possible from the moment we enter the building — all of which will make for a calm and confident demeanor, which, in turn, will translate into a quiet and well-managed classroom, and a pleasant day for all involved.”
