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!

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.

I liked the fact that we worked together and the results were amazing.

Learning has never been such fun and so moving.

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.
Sarah Ehlinger Dover Massachusetts
In addition to teaching in the schools, she is one of our best presenters of teacher professional development and is called upon regularly by other arts organizations for professional development.

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.

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

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!

You all did an amazing job this summer. The performance showed real and substantive accomplishment by the children – a testament to your team’s work. Congratulations and THANK YOU!

THE LAST FUGITIVE SLAVE performance showed the emotional distress and physical consequences of the slavery institution; Robin incorporated students into her performance, directly having them see the importance of the teaching of history and culture by means of the theatrical arts.
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.

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