    Wendy is making such a rich contribution to the emotional & social well-being of teachers & students, a soothing balm in a troubled world. She very clearly knows these ways inside & out, & so can naturally share them clearly. She seems so happy to be sharing that she obviously is living what she’s teaching while she’s teaching it — do as she says, & as she does! Thank you!

    What an inspirational and well presented talk on one of the most important aspects of education. Without social and emotional intelligence we are destined to more of what we are witnessing today in the leadership of our nation. Thanks you for your contributions to the evolution of the development of our children and our schools.
