My name is Claudia Ruf and I am the principal at Glencoe High School in Hillsboro, Oregon.

We invited Marydee to speak to all of our teachers during a recent Professional Development day. Teachers are still talking about what they learned, and you could feel the energy in the room.

These are some of the comments sent to me from staff after her visit:

"The information on executive functioning really makes me think about the demands placed on students and what else we may need to pre-teach before expecting certain outcomes."

"Executive Functioning specifics and its impact within the classroom was by far my favorite part of the day."

"The science of the brain tells us that there is a way we present information to the students and a way to react to discipline situations that could be more effective."

I highly recommend her training. Having teachers learn about executive functioning and time management for students will best help us serve the individual needs of all our students.
