Community EventReviewed on February 3, 2018From Tempe, AZ

David was very responsive to the needs of our organization and tailored his presentation to exactly meet our need. He was extremely funny, yet thought provoking. He reminded us of the humane side of our profession and to consider how humor in our classrooms can improve health, energy, engagement, and therefore learning.
