"Before I met Colleen, I thought that this job wasn't for me, I had lost all the joy and passion for teaching. After the session, I regained all my confidence and took every single piece of advice to heart. It completely changed me and the way I teach. Now, I love to go to work! My students and I are having so much fun! We sing, we dance, we play and we are learning like never before. I had been so inspired that I took the session a second time and it was totally worth it! Colleen rocks and I left the room wanting to be her best friend! Thank for helping me fall in love with teaching again!"

"Wanted to thank you soooooo much for coming to speak to us last Friday. It was really great that you worked to include the bus drivers as well as the classroom assistants and others who work with our students.
Having been a bus driver since 1986, it was great to hear that I had been doing things relatively ‘right’ since I started driving a bus back in the day, and to know that now, in my current position as Transportation Coordinator, I have been sharing appropriate strategies with drivers who have asked me questions about what to do, what works, how do I get the students to listen, etc.
I am sure that the drivers who attended took home a lot of useful information about dealing with students and how to achieve the behaviours we need to have on the school bus without losing tempers or creating a giant problem from a small issue."

"I wanted to say thank you for the fantastic workshop you gave. You were a fabulous presenter and I appreciated your knowledge, approach and energy."
"Hi Colleen. I think your course was one of the best I had been on. More useful than a lot of what I learned at University."
"You really inspired me and gave me hope that I'm on the right track with behavior management at our school."
"Thank you for coming to New Zealand and presenting a most stimulating and excellent presentation. We all commented that the day went far too quickly! I wish it could have been longer."
"I thoroughly enjoyed it and along with solidifying some of my ideas, you opened me up to more strategies to work with adolescents and adults at risk."
"I have just finished going through my notes from today's workshop: proactive strategies for children with challenging behaviour, and I would like to thank you for the most informative, most practical, and most engaging presentation ever. I can confidently say that ALL TEACHERS and or EDUCATORS will definitely benefit from your workshop. Thank you for your passion, not only on the content of your workshop, but passion for the children and the teacher/educators. Thank you for believing that all children and teacher/educators alike can grow to their fullest potential working hand in hand together. You are amazing! I can not wait to implement the strategies that I have now with my students in the classroom! THANK YOU!"
