‘I'm only halfway through this course but I wanted to say how well received Freeze Frames and Thought Tracking have been. So much so that the youngest group have specifically asked to do it again next week. You have taken a whole load of stress out of starting teaching.'

Sally Chattaway, Godstone, UK

'I adore the fact that each one of the techniques you suggest is chosen carefully for its importance and special meaning. This gives a boost of confidence to the teacher and a feeling of quality and respect to the whole class. Thank you David for transmitting your valuable experience in such an explicit way!'

Theodora Nakou, Thessaloniki, Greece

‘As a teaching artist I am always looking for fresh ideas to complement my interactions with the children. I felt this course reviewed some of what I already do, and then added to my ideas by new ways to use former activities.’

Eileen Nagle, California

The format of the course is just right. I'm supposed to be switching off from school for the hols! But this course is so enjoyable and I can't help but be inspired. The units were interesting and fun to do - and manageable (time wise), a really well designed course.

Kate Beverly, Scotland

'Actually I was really impressed from the first video I watched. Your course is really amazing for us! I'm the vice principal and will advise many other teachers to take this course.'

Ahmet Ates, Ronaki Hawler International School, Erbil, Iraq

'I didn't feel that I was learning in isolation - the feedback from David and the sharing of other course members’ ideas was very comforting. I can't wait to try these techniques in sequence when school comes back after the Easter break!'

Pete Tiley, UK

'It gave me fresh ideas to use for all my classes. I'm very excited about experimenting more!'

Claudia Markovic, Germany
