Lisa was AMAZING!! She was so good with the kids, kept their attention, redirected them positively to focus on the presentation, was kind, funny, and animated. I have a student that is non-verbal but communicates and eagerly participates through making noises and he raised his hand to ask a question. Lisa caught on to this fast and included him in the question portion by calling on him. When he couldn't communicate she filled in the words for him and it made his day! She was wonderful. Thank you! We can't wait for the reptiles and amphibian and hope that Lisa will be back!
Our interpreters were knowledgeable and full of energy. They kept the kids engaged and offered many opportunities for the kids to pet and interact with the animals. Great job!
The kids loved their interpreter and they learned a lot about farm animals and farm life. It was a very worthwhile field trip. I was very pleased with the experience
