Testimonials

“Recently I had the opportunity to participate in a workshop hosted by Peter Cameron. I had high expectations and they were met.  Unlike a technical explanation provided by the distributors, this day long educational experience drew from the instructors vast knowledge base/background and provided classroom applications and examples.  The  presentation and accompanying handouts can be used as an ongoing reference source and the Internet sites provided are top notch and classroom proven.  Additionally, the instructor’s personal website is done very professionally and is again classroom proven which includes student’s samples allowing the user to directly incorporate it into their curriculum.  Our board is looking forward to further training opportunities with Peter.”

“Workshop was excellent, presenter friendly and approachable.”
