TESTIMONIAL OF THE MONTH!
A MUST READ! *
"On behalf of our entire school community, I would like to extend... to Head-to-Head our thanks for an amazing learning opportunity for our students, parents and staff.
Throughout the past four months, we had a chance to work with and learn from (an) Olympian (who) brought an incredibly high level of energy to each and every session and shared with our students many examples of not only her triumphs but also how (to overcome) many challenges.
(Our mentor) connected with members of (the) audiences in both small class and large assembly-type settings...participated in our school-wide track meet and acted as a phenomenal role model for our community members.
The materials which were provided to us in advance of each session by Head-to Head were highly appropriate and we received much positive feedback regarding the learning which was taking place from our parents and staff.
I would not hesitate for one second to recommend Head to Head to any school or organization. Program delivery can be customized for your specific needs and the sessions can be set up in virtually any learning environment.
It is evident from the fact that so many of our students are still following (our Olympian mentor's) exploits overseas that (our mentor) made a huge impression on many of our students!"
