Jenny’s presentation brought our students and teachers together in a playful, creative way that is not often a part of our school community. Her presentation was short enough that it fit into the teacher’s work day but long enough that quality material could be drawn out. Jenny was very easy to work with. She was easy to reach and quick to respond to my calls and emails. Together we planned what would work for Box Elder, she was flexible but also very aware of what she needed for her presentation to be a success, and it was.
