"Your message of "Brain Freeze" and "GO Brain GO!" really nailed it! We learn a lot about the brain here at our school, and how we can help ourselves when feeling overwhelmed and frozen." 2/23/2018

"NED's adventure taught him new things and he learned about new places and doing things he didn't know he could do. This was exactly what we talk about when we discuss growth mindset."

"The concepts presented are all relevant to the growth mindset. My students really jumped onto the "yet" phrase and have used that ever since the assembly. This was a very well done assembly.

Thank you!" 2/23/2018 "I am always a little hesitant to have time taken out for assemblies, but it was a valuable and engaging performance. The message was clear and delivered in a way that was memorable...combination of story and talking and tricks. Very well done." 5/2/2018

The content was great and well delivered." 4/30/2018 "The presenter/magician kept students attention by modulating his voice, posing questions and eliciting participation. The visuals, the magic and the yo-yos tricks were engaging, entertaining and fun." 5/9/2018
