She has a seemingly magical ability to reach a young audience, draw them in, and keep them engaged...from fidgety four-year olds to skeptical fourteen-year olds, and she captivated and entertained as she educated.

That was the best time I had at school.

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.

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

When you add movement to a poem, it makes it so much easier to understand.
Maddi, a student
Thank you. I especially will be using the side-by-side comparison of the Great Law of Peace and the Constitution. And my students enjoy learning about the Native American symbolism present on U. S. currency.
Hugh M. Cummings High School, Burlington, NC
This was great! I really enjoy these professional development workshops and this one had cool ideas I can take and use in the classroom tomorrow! The speaker was very organized, executed her objectives well, and provided useful techniques. Fun time!

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.
Lynne Lipcon, Young Audiences Massachusetts
The kids watching and participating in her performance didn’t need to be told twice to listen; they
were riveted by Pease’s performance.

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
Ms. Pease is a very committed artist who works quite well under the pressure of deadlines; I am amazed at how much she is able to accomplish in short periods of time. A strong commitment to excellence is apparent in all of her work. She is very good at keeping people focused on a task or goal and is adept at coordinating multiple simultaneous projects.

"The audience joined in, singing the sequence of the water cycle. After the program, positive comments from parents exclaimed that this will give the kids a jump start on science in the upcoming school year."
Lynn Raymond, Cuyahoga County Public Library
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.

I believe the show clearly demonstrates that the "Founding Fathers" based many portions of the Constitution on their knowledge of Iroquois government, rather than on the Magna Carta, as textbooks often claim.

Robin is a unique and creative artist whose leadership has helped countless students and teachers. Her experience has been invaluable and her high expectations have helped our staff in attaining not only our artistic goals but also our academic goals.
