"Sadie had excellent energy and enthusiasm during the presentation. She answered all our questions and had the students engaged. The artifacts, models and videos also kept their interest. It felt a little rushed since we were trying to cut a 2-hr presentation into 1.5 hours, but she held our interest throughout. We were provided a list of vocabulary words to review before the presentation, as well as some worksheets to solidify learning after the talk. Both were pitched at an appropriate level and helped the students access prior knowledge and reflect on their learning. We loved the beautiful posters and certificate we were gifted at the end. Thank you!" - Alison Hall
"I would recommend Sadie because she interacted very well with the students. Her enthusiasm for wolves was contagious and she kept their interest by using a variety of activities." - Tara Johnson
