What educators are saying

My freshman class had some major issues with the way they talk to themselves and each other. This was a nice little reminder that our words have meaning.
Great resource! I had a couple students who would "trash talk". This was a great resource to use to help them learn how to replace their words with more positive "treasure talk".
