A comment on John's Level IV school crisis response training:

"Just wanted to make a brief contact to say I appreciated the Level IV training you presented today. I went into it with a very doubtful attitude. Have been in education 37 years, listened to hundreds of "experts" who had little of value to say and, truth be told, darn little expertise. I do not often respond to presentors so this is very unusual. I APPRECIATED spending my time, which is very valuable to me, in a conference where the "expert" actually had a strong background, some apparent common sense, and the ability to share those. At 8:15 this morning I was wondering why I had tied myself into another conference. Now I am glad I had the opportunity!"
