"Dave was very energetic and passionate about the topic. He was able to keep a challenging class engaged." - L. Michelle Tremblay
"Dave is an engaging and interesting presenter" - Susan Stolberg
"Dave kept the students interested with various animal skins/skulls, artifacts, a picture slideshow and interesting stories." - Sarah Keenan
"Dave was very engaging and kept the students attention through personal stories and pictures that related to the topic. He brought in an amazing animal hide that the students loved to explore. Dave also had a great idea for a final project that he front-loaded for the students. This project will allow students to be creative and come up with solutions of thier own for various climate change related issues. I am very grateful for his knowledge of the topic and getting the students excited for their final project!" - Heather Davis
"The pics Dave had were amazing. What a life! The presentation was soooo fast (45 min) and lacked context for the gr 3/4 kids. There needs to be more of a teaching component, less of a personal slideshow. I was hoping to focus on animals in the climate change loop as we have been studying mitigation and adaptation for humans. More discussion/review/interaction on adaptations would have been appreciated, as the students were released to their drawing imaginary animals very quickly (after 45 minutes). Although a cool assignment, the kids were a bit on their own. More discussion on his work, and his profession to inspire kids to work with animals in the arctic. Although I too believe that we might mitigate aspects of, and adapt (or die) with climate change, younger kids need to understand how and why. Dave has a real opportunity to teach about his career and projects here! Thanks to you both. I will send pics to Dave of our creatures. " - Kari-Lynn Hatt
