Queen of Peace

December 11, 2012

Thank You to a very supportive Principal and staff for a great day.  When parents tell me that the dinner conversation was all about what their children learned today – that makes my day!

St Mary CES

December 10, 2012

A small community in Windsor Essex, St Mary had a very respectful group of students, and very engaged parents.  To the mother who took on the “ipod challenge” with her daughter- your email to me was priceless… and I am glad there was a positive result.  Pass on the message to other parents!

Steve McLean PS

Amazing day at Steve McLean!  Two very engaged student groups during the day – and capacity parent attendance during the evening (two open seats left).  Your VP had me return from his previous school last year – and I certainly appreciate the opportunity to speak, and your support!  Awesome feedback from the parents in attendance.

St Francis Xavier HS – 100K!

December 5, 2012

A day for me to remember.  Today I spoke to over 800 students, bringing my total to 100,000 students spoken to in just under three years.  This was my second time at St Francis Xavier, and a big Thank You to the students who remembered me from last year, and approached me to “talk tech”.  I love your passion for technology and to be safe!  Thanks to the parents who attended this evening (and those who were here last year!).  A Great Day!

Thank You to the Students and Parents of St Jerome CES.  A great day, and wonderful community.  Great to be back!

Westmount PS

November 28, 2012

From the High School this morning – and a one hour drive to Westmount PS.  A small school with really good students.  Both sessions had great questions (including your teachers!).  Thanks to the parents this evening, and for your support!

IONA Catholic HS

A pleasure to return and speak to the Grade 9s at IONA this morning.  Good conversation and questions from the floor.  Sorry we had to cut the Q&A short – we need more time in the day to speak!

St Gregory, CES

November 27, 2012

Today was a special day for me as a speaker.  A young girl (9 yrs old) told me something I will remember forever – and in the presence of a teacher, who was as pleasantly surprised as I was.  It had to do with how the message she heard affected her.  I shared the story with the principal, and will reference her quote every night I speak from now on!  Very well behaved students today, and great parent participation tonight.  Thank You St Gregory!
