Positive, useable examples of what to do in the school setting. Follow up email to come yeah! Thanks heaps!! I really enjoyed it!
Thank you for another incredibly interesting, beneficial and highly practice-based course. You really get what teachers come up against and give us effective, new strategies to implement in our classrooms and schools.
Thank you for today. One of the most informative and engaging workshops I have ever attended. I would absolutely recommend it.
Good information that is applicable to all school settings. Good interactive activities between participants. Enjoyed the workshop and use of music and video examples were impressive. Well done. Well presented and applicable. Thanks!
Marie is passionate about accessible, inclusive and quality education so barriers can be removed and students can ‘get on’ with learning and teachers can ‘get on’ with teaching.
How involved we were all able to be. Freedom to discuss our own experiences. Effective strategies to take away. Engaging presenter.
Marie not only presents ideas and skills for teachers to learn and embed in their classrooms but she creates methodologies to suit the variety of cases that the everyday teacher might come across in their teaching career.
Very engaging, meaningful content, great ideas and strategies, provides understanding of student behaviour.
Fun, engaging, thought provoking , great for staff morale. Thank you
Thoroughly enjoyed it! The various activites. The opportunities to move around and mix with different staff and the relaxed/informal atmosphere.
This was amazing!! I have learned so much and the staff connected even more! The sessions were engaging, fast-paced and multimodel. Everything was great! Definitely recommend
The knowledge of the presenter and the activities that encouraged participation were its strengths. The fun aspect was also great.
Marie is a fantastic presenter who puts her audience at ease with her calm, friendly nature. She gets the important messages across through interesting, activity and discussion based presentations
Fun and engaging , informative and thought provoking
Some excellent, tangible strategies. Well researched information. Will print out and laminate resources. Great for whole staff development.
Fantastic workshop. Highly recommended
Everything was compatible with the classroom. Activities were able to be performed (no need for anything else) Timing was great. It was informative, relevant and applicable. I would recommend it.
I love the research base, modelling of best practice, the professional approach and ‘hard edge’ to the content presented. Had a great balance. Thank you so much Marie and I hope we see you again soon.
Marie is an inspiring teacher and presenter. She conveys her depth of knowledge in creative and engaging ways to motivate her students, both adult and children. She is passionate about supporting teachers and students and loves what she does.
Thanks for a fun and thought-provoking day. Very informative.
Thank you for such an engaging, hands on and valuable experience!
This has been a very valuable, affirming skills workshop for me. I can’t wait for the next one. Thank you for an effective Professional Development workshop! Thank you Marie and Tanya!
Marie’s delivery approach is engaging and offers a rich and varied forum for participants to participate and contribute. You walk away feeling motivated, excited and can immediately put things into practice!. I now have a toolbox of strategies that I regularly use
Fabulous presenter-knowledgeable. Activities- not sitting and listening to a lecture for the whole day. Fantastic- thank you!
Marie’s presentations are fun, based on authoritative research, interactive and acknowledge the range of experiences, skills and aspirations teachers bring to Professional Development. Teachers feel equipped and motivated to immediately take the concepts into their classrooms to engage in explicit, sound, practice leading to clearly identified learning outcomes for students.
Thanks. Took a lot away from this session. Great PD
“..inclusive and hands on”
”..supportive and comprehensive”
“There were many examples of activities that could be taken back and used in the workplace”
Large, practical component. Well organised and well structured. A fantastic and very informative day! Thank you!
I recommend this workshop as it holistically reinforces preparation, PBL, PROBL and expectations. It affirms practice, ensures self reflection and allowed us to reingage with strategies we may not have used for some time.
The ideas and strategies taught can be applied to any classroom setting and it was encouraged to think about how it would apply in my own context.
The engagement and quick pace of activities were great. All areas covered were so beneficial. Thank you
Small numbers ensured we were able to have more input and made the whole workshop more meaningful. Marie is extremely knowledgeable in this field.
Great balance of theory and practical- great practical strategies. Very interactive, very experienced presenter. Excellent content-very relevant. Loved the day!
Practical strategies modelled that can go across all teaching areas. Positive behaviour strategies and opportunities for discussing our thoughts.
The strategies were implemented/embodied throughout the presentation. Knowledgeable presenter who is also friendly and down-to-earth
Realistic strategies that can be implemented in any KLA in any age group. Engaging and informative and would benefit ALL teachers.
Excellent workshop. Very informative, practical and relevant. Great knowledgeable presenter. I loved it!
So much information delivered in a very engaging way. I didn’t realise I was being told so much because it was delivered in such an informal/engaging way. Loved it! Informative, interesting, fun and safe. A most enjoyable day. Very affirming thank you so much.
