You did such a great job with our kids! You had the energy to keep their attention, plus you came up with little ways to keep them engaged. You kept all of the terminology on their level, and the teachers were totally thrilled with your presentation. We are looking forward to meeting with you again soon!
- Sandra Delezell, Norris Elementary, NE

I was so pleased to be able to observe your dynamic lesson on the Rain Forest. The students were having a blast with your activities and we were ALL – students and staff – constantly looking at each other mouthing the words, “I did NOT know that!” You demonstrated the VERY BEST in after school programming practice – it was fun! You were so enthusiastic! And everyone learned a ton of information about the rain forest.
- Sandra Day, Ed.D

Your presentation was fantastic!
- Mrs. Magana, Principal of Walt Disney Elementary School

We've read a lot of stories about monkeys, but they've never seen one in its natural environment. This was a great opportunity for my students... A lot of my students come from low income families and will probably never have the opportunity to experience a trip to the zoo. This is a way for them to do that. I would love to do another e-field trip. Thank-you!
