I am not one for writing profusely gushing letters but I neede to share my heartfelt thanks and respect to you. I am originally from Whangarei, New Zealand but currently teaching in Vietnam where the professional development opportunities are not easily available (if there are any at all!). When I saw the Educa webinars available I signed up immediately. Thank you so much for providing such deep understandings, research and questioning about relevant topics. I was hesitant about the quality of the webinars (I have been to enough PD courses where I walk back out thinking it didn't anything new or thought provoking) - but your webinars are thought provoking and well laid out to progress thinking. One thing I miss from formal study is the level of thinking and analysis that happens at university - so often this is left behind at university; however, you have retained this quality. Thank you for unpacking the topics with research and pedagogical understanding. It has truly been refreshing to be inspired and provoked as a teacher from your webinars and I thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise with me. May your week ahead be filled with light and wonder,
Sara Teacher
