Patti came to New Zealand in January to speak at our two Teachers Matter conferences. Her keynotes and workshops were a hit for our teachers – filled with practical ideas to use in the classroom the very next day. Patti shared great examples and stories of success and her gentle style on stage was engaging and connected with teachers from many different school districts and areas. I would recommend Patti as a speaker at any educational conference. Karen Tui Boyes, CSP, CEO, Spectrum Education Ltd, New Zealand
