Today was a wonderful experience, it really opened up new way of thinking for me.

The conference was great. It opened my eyes on how I view my teachers now.

The energy today was really good and I feel like I leave here knowing more.

Very informative and lots of fun. I learned a lot and I hope to use what I learned today in the future.
