Broadview PS, Ottawa

June 10, 2015

Two student presentations today, followed a full house of parents from Broadview and Elmwood PS together this evening.  Thank You to the VP who saw me at another school for inviting me to her new school today.

Parents were very engaged with good Q&A.

I look forward to returning in October 2016!

St Mary, Carleton Place

June 9, 2015

A small community 35min from Ottawa, I spent the day at St Mary in Carleton Place today.

An awesome parent audience this evening (extra chairs required) to support the message today with students.

Thank You!



St Gabriel, Ottawa

June 8, 2015

My second stop today was at St Gabriel in Kanata, Ontario

I spoke to the Grade 4/5/6s in the afternoon, and then welcomed their parents this evening.

Thank You to the Principal and parents for inviting me to your community.

Elmdale PS, Ottawa

June 8, 2015

The day started off at Elmdale PS in Ottawa with Grade 4/5/6s (and their parents too!)

What is normally a 1hr session lasted 90+min…    Excellent students!

Great to hear parents will be attending at another school Wednesday night in your area.

TEDx St Mary, Durham Catholic

June 5, 2015

The challenge today? Get 65min of material down to under 18min for TEDx

Knowing it’s impossible, I had to create a piece specific for this event.  Unique for me, as 18 min cannot do justice to my usual delivery.

Thank You to the organizers of the event for having me speak to 500+ students today.

I enjoyed my day!


Dewitt Carter, Niagara

June 4, 2015

In Port Colbourne today at Dewitt Carter in the Niagara School Board.

The one day we had snowed-out in December came to pass today, and it was well worth the wait.

A wonderful day with students and parents.

Best part of the day – both Principals had me at previous schools, and invited me to their new school.

Claude Watson School of the Arts

June 3, 2015

Two awesome sessions with students today – I had to cut off Q&A in both groups due to time restrictions.

A great parent turnout this evening!  It was warm – and you stayed for 90min

Thank You for asking me back in September 2016!  I look forward to returning.

Anne J MacArthur

June 2, 2015

13 months after my first visit, I returned to Anne J MacArthur today in Milton, Ontario.

Great being remembered by students, staff and parents.

I am honoured to be asked to return next year also!  THANK YOU!
