Thank you Ms. Rolan for being such a good teacher. I have a greater understanding of how to present myself to strangers and the need to broaden my mind with new ideas and interests, so that I have more to offer in conversations with new people. I also feel more confident that it’s ok to be different and I have a better feeling about myself. I believe my time with you was most valuable.
Dear Ms. Rolan,
I learned a lot of valuable skills from this training program. You taught me an easy way to make eye contact with people without staring. And you taught me how to respectfully eat at dinner. You also showed me that I have a really nice voice and the ability to talk to an audience. I will take what I learned and apply it to my daily life. Thank you so much.
