New Training Endoresements
It’s been a while since I updated my training endorsements. (It’s terribly self-serving). As a result, I recently asked two conference directors if they would write a few words about my presentation. Here are their responses:
From Midland, MI…
“This is the best professional development I’ve ever attended.”
“The presentation I attended today changed my life, both personally and professionally.”
“I immediately changed several things in my classroom the very next day.”
“We are rapping in class and the kids love it.”
“Can Charlie come back next year?
These are a few of the statements we have heard since Charlie Appelstein presented in Midland, Michigan to over 500 people at a countywide professional development day. The audience was captivated. I have never seen so many people purchase books, ask questions, and stay after to talk to a speaker. The ripple effect of this presentation is here to stay — seeing positive changes in classrooms, positive notes going home to parents, and morale is improved overall. Thank you so much!!
Charlie brings many years of experience, as well as an engaging, humorous, and practical style to his presentations. This past fall, he presented both the keynote and an all-day workshop at our annual conference. Participants gave him universally high marks on his insight and real-world advice, and I don’t think it’s overstating the case to say that all in attendance felt thoroughly engaged and energized for another year of caring for children. We would not hesitate to bring Charlie back, and cannot recommend him more highly.
As a foster, adoptive, and biological parent myself, I can attest to the value of Charlie’s strength-based approach, detailed in his book, “No Such Thing as a Bad Kid.” It works – with real kids, and real parents, in real situations.
