    What People Are Saying about Arlene . . .

    I’m currently in that “dark tunnel” you mentioned, and until your presentation my bowl of chips was quite empty. I’ve stapled your “12 Ways” sheet to the inside cover of my plan book so that I might read it daily.

    An Anonymous listener

    Arlene provided a refreshing detour from the realm of rubrics, multiple measures, testing and API scores as she took us on a journey exploring the fragile human spirit of a child. Her poignant vignettes brought tears and laughter as she emphasized the valuable position each teacher holds in the life of a child.

    Laurel Leidner, Teacher, Letters to the Editor Column – Mountain News, Lake Arrowhead, CA

    …I appreciated your interest in Job Corps and how well you researched your presentation by visiting a Center. That was terrific?  Your generosity and willingness to participate wholeheartedly in the process sent a real message to me.

    Claudia Schuster, Program Manager, US Department of Labor/Job Corp

    I was privileged to watch Arlene speak before the toughest group of all. Her own colleagues, administrators who have seen it all and heard it all from everyone including Arlene.

    What is that story about not being a prophet in your own town. Arlene exploded that myth. They all agreed it was the best start of the year speaker we had in the twelve years we’ve had speakers and we had the most inspirational school start in my 37 years in education.

    Sharon Belshaw-Jones, Former Superintendent – Fremont Unified School District

    It was a pleasure to meet you, work with you, and be inspired by you.

    Tori Burdick, Vice President of Programs, San Joaquin Association of Educational Office Professionals

    If you are looking for a dynamic, articulate, energetic, and upbeat speaker for an in-service, staff development, or conference, Arlene is definitely worth considering. If you want a message that will outlast the moment when people leave the session, Arlene will deliver that.

    Donna Henderson, Staff Development Coordinator – Central County Occupational Center, San Jose, CA

    Your illustration about "chips" hit home with everyone-what a great way to point out the value of reaching out and sharing yourself with others.
