“Leslie/Scott: Thanks soooo much for your passionate and motivating “sendoff” to our CFBISD staff last Tuesday. I heard many comments from teachers as they exited the auditorium indicating their excitement to get into their classrooms and implement the strategies you stressed. Since I had the privilege of hearing your presentation 3 times, I was able to share the highlights “verbatim” with my husband when I got home. As a former board member and the husband of a teacher, he is HIGHLY defensive of criticism toward public schools and constantly “putting out fires” amongst his fellow “McDonalds a.m. coffee cronies” (who think the Dallas Morning News is the gospel).”
