Some student comments:

Connie is by far the best instructor I have had!



I took a FOCEP workshop with another trainer a few years ago. That class was VERY boring. Connie made her classes a lively, interactive experience. I am so glad I decided to take Connie's class!

Excellent instructor! She uses a variety of teaching methods and keeps you interested!

This was a fantastically, educational class. I enjoyed it immensely. Connie made even the gross stuff interesting and somehow tolerable. Thanks!

All the information was taught in such a fun and exciting manner,  one didn't realize time passing. I have already begun to use the knowledge in all aspects of my job, thank you. You are unique!

Connie is one of, if not the best instructor I have ever had in my ten years of experience with trainers and facilitators!

 Just a few lines to say, "Thanks" for such a wonderful and enlightening course.  I really enjoyed the way you presented the materials, I'm sure I will be using many of your techniques when I actually start teaching the course
