“One of the greatest disadvantages of directing a convention…is that it doesn’t allow much time for me to participate.  And for that I am always disappointed.  For I do not always get to enjoy some of the “hits” of our meeting. And from all that I have been told—You were a HIT Coach D.”

Nancy RiviereDirector of Conventions-National Association of Secondary School Principals.

“Thank you so much for the informative, uplifting workshop presented to Delaware educators at our annual training.  The response was overwhelmingly positive and the teachers left feeling renewed and ready to tackle the school year with newly learned strategies and an “I can do this” attitude. One veteran teacher wrote: I felt so much more excited about starting the school year than I felt yesterday.  Coach D helped me reconfirm my passion for educating my challenged youth.”
