  • Eric was a very engaging presenter! He had many ways for the students to become involved in his presentation and they all had a great time.  In addition to his great engagement, his message was very powerful.  In the time after the presentation students and teachers have used his message of "You are what you say/do/eat/choose/act" to help modify undesired behaviors.  Thank you for coming to our school!
