What Teachers Say

Chonita wrote:
"I've used Diane every day since Tuesday. She's helped us in science and she passed out papers. Most kids said thank you and some patted her on the head. Some wrote about her in their journals. I don't think I could quit even if I wanted to. My kids won't allow me."

Kristin wrote:
"Great fun! I've always wanted to make my own puppets, then I end up resorting to purchasing them. Now I feel that I have the freedom to make a quick puppet that I am happy with."

Chonita wrote:
"Diane has been part of our spelling lessons all week and today I started without her. "Isn't Diane coming today?' I heard three different students say. I couldn't believe what I was hearing from one of my "tough guys." I can't believe the attitude of my students. They are different. They are excited and I'm excited. I've share with my principal, staff, and friends about your class and what I'm experiencing now."

"You have helped me to feel more confident using this media, and I feel that I have gained more 'direction' for tweeking my puppet communication 'skills', or should I say "play"!"
