Kim was awesome! Anecdotal comments from participants said things like she was the best presenter they had ever heard...can they use grant funds to bring her into their districts for professional development for staff....it was as if she were describing their lives...it was pretty cool! :) They also were making comments that they were going to suggest that other organizations bring her back to PA for some more events.
