When I had to go up and say my part, I thought I would be nervous. When I get nervous, my voice gets deep and it didn’t get deep. I wasn’t nervous and I was surprised they didn’t make me nervous. I was comfortable. They probably made me conquer my fear on getting nervous in front of people.

Thanks! We need more PD like this in order to motivate our students to actively participate and learn concepts in various ways. Bring Robin back!

The performance was superb. The children were engrossed from start to finish. They wanted more!

It was an amazing experience because they got me to come out of my shell.

I don’t usually gush, but this was FABULOUS! For 45 minutes, Robin Pease held her audience
spellbound (students and adults alike). She skillfully created an awareness of cultural differences while augmenting the children’s awareness of the even greater degree to which we are all alike.

I really enjoyed being able to work with a group to being a poem to life using drama.

Learning has never been such fun and so moving. It is a great way to learn history!

The story was creative and highly interactive.

Your workshop with my 7th graders was not only outstanding but also memorable. After you left, our assistant principal stopped in and the kids insisted on showing him their Civil War poetry presentations. He was duly impressed.

Robin Pease was the keynote speaker, a constructive and inspiring addition to the festival....she really held the attention and interest of the entire auditorium. Teachers came away with a better understanding of how to enhance storytelling with dramatic arts principles, and use stories from diverse cultural backgrounds to create activities that address learning standards.

It surprised me are how fast they got us to write a song and then got people to actually sing along and interact with everything.
Julia, a student
I loved how you were interactive with everyone.

Being that many of our students from Japan, Korea, Taiwan, France, Russia and Turkey have limited verbal and listening skills, the visual part of the program created a captive audience.

When you add movement to a poem, it makes it so much easier to understand.

I really enjoyed your presentation and had a lot of fun performing. I think you're really cool!
