Kim Bearden! She was fantastic!! I was so appreciative of her ability to convey such important ideas to teachers (and all of us, that are so difficult to hear from a supervisor or administrator, but were received so well coming from Kim. Her manner, her credibility, her enthusiasm, her charm all combined to establish an immediate and deep rapport with her audience and I know her words were taken to heart as positive and meaningful by virtually every one of the 450 attendees. Her presentation was memorable for everyone - and that includes the custodians, secretaries, para-professionals - everyone. I even had a community member who ran the lights and sound for us come up to me and tell me how much he enjoyed her talk. Fantastic!

I cannot say enough good things about Kim's presentation! She is phenomenal! The teachers left the auditorium truly uplifted by Kim's words. Many teachers have commented to me saying how much they enjoyed Kim and how much they appreciated the opportunity to hear her speak.

Kim is clearly the best speaker I have ever heard at any conference I have attended. Her message about the importance of creativity in the classroom and how to make a difference in the lives of all children was both moving and informative.

Each of us hopes to encounter that one teacher who helps us make sense of it all, and who may touch the soul of her students in a way that encourages them to become a better human being. Kim Stewart is this teacher.
