« My husband and myself think that Nancy will be an absolutely wonderful teacher and asset to any student that she works with. She was our daughters music teacher all through elementary school, and her dedication, teaching style, praise and kindness was a big inspiration in our daughters life and continues to be till this day. She is a wonderful person and any child would be extremely lucky to have her as their teacher. Simply said, she would be an asset and whether the child is 4 or 16 they will have a teacher who is considerate, intelligent, kind and a strong woman who cares about the child, not just while teaching but after as well. My husband, our daughter and myself cannot say enough wonderful things about Nancy, she truly is a teacher who cares about their student and will be a blessing and asset to any teaching organization. Sincerely, Ray, Sue and Haber »

Carol

I met Nancy when he visited my country about 4 years ago. Even though we are from different worlds, we connected immediately. This was in part because Nancy listened deeply! She did PDs with some of our teachers. They still talk about Nancy's sessions and passion for education to date.
