  • 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!
