"Our day was very successful. We had him come on the half day staff development. In the morning, he presented a week's worth of readers theater in 2 hours in a second grade class. As he worked with the kids and did the performance, I videoed the process. Afterward, he edited the film in order to present it to the faculty in the afternoon. We opened lunch to anyone who wanted to join us and then we had our 1/2 day staff development. The teachers loved him and found him to be so motivating. He has a wonderful sense of humor, too."
