The amount of emails and text messages from all of the staff has been so incredible. I even had one staff member say that she has never left a PD opportunity and felt this uplifted. Just what they needed at just the right moment. Thank you! (Virtual Presentation Review)

Kim was amazing!!!! Our teachers enjoyed her so much. She is an awesome presenter. I hope that we can visit her academy some day.Thanks for always putting us in touch with some amazing presenters. We appreciate you very much!!
Never in my life have I had such an amazing time. Our teachers were surely changed by her. She is such a real person that it comes through in everything she says. She had us all crying at the end and I even had my men teachers coming up to me telling me how they loved me and all that I had done for them. A life changing event for sure. Well worth it.
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
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 was awesome! Anecdotal comments included: she was the best presenter they had ever heard . . . can they bring her into their districts for development for staff . . . it was as if she were describing their lives . . . it was pretty cool! :)
It was great. Many teachers have told me it was the best speaker we have had. The main comment I heard was that she actually understood what challenges they face on a daily basis, both personally and professionally. They could relate to her.
It was life changing!!! We all loved it and gained both practical classroom skills as well as a heavy dose of inspiration! Thank you for helping to bring Kim into our lives!
Kim was great and exactly what we needed to start the school year. Teachers from the veterans to the rookies found her extremely inspirational. She gave teachers tons of practical, fun and engaging ideas to use in the classroom. Everyone loved her!
It was fabulous!!!!! Everyone said that having Ron and then Kim was the best year ever. Kim also conducting a breakout session for middle and high school language arts teachers--that was terrific. It was all both entertaining and informative.
I want to thank you again for your presentation "How to Have a Creative Classroom and Still Score High on Standardized Tests." The information you presented was informative, resourceful and applicable to the instructional needs of our students.
Kim Bearden did an outstanding job for us. Several of our HS teachers remarked that this is the best teacher they have ever heard speak. Also, her message about how teachers should 'think' (Top Ten Things) was outstanding.
All verbal feedback has been extremely positive. I think we more than got our money's worth. She was very well received by our teacher audience. Thank you for helping us to get her as a speaker. She was perfect for us!
Kim was just what we needed for those "winter doldrums" we all go through in February. She involved the audience, made us laugh and think, and left teachers with creative ideas they could use immediately.
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.
