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!

It was very interesting to learn about all the different kinds of acting skills.

"The kids were jumping out of their seats to participate in the show. The parents were pleased that, by the time the kids had the mystery solved and the show was over, they learned about the water cycle, including precipitation, collection, and evaporation."

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

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!

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

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

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 interactive qualities of the workshop made the class really exciting. It was great to be up and moving, active and creative. It gave me another strategy to use in the classroom. Easy to do, yet very power outcomes.

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.

The message was right on target - every student was engaged.

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.
Settlement Music School, Philadelphia PA
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.

Pease utilizo una mezcla de español e inglés para contar las historias y adaptarlas a su audiencia, la mayoría de ellos eran bilingues.
