WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“Emma, I just wanted to thank you for sharing your enthusiasm, thoughts and ideas with our classes (2TD and 2/3C) on Monday. Our students have been very keen to write their stories thanks to your input. We are now in the process of creating our own class publications complete with illustrations, hopefully by the end of term. Thanks again for your time, you have boosted the students motivation in an area where they needed it most.”
— Christine Connelly, Year 3 Teacher, Sacred Heart Primary School
