“Dean was a high-energy presenter that made the day a lot of fun. As a pre-service teacher the day gave me a great insight into some of the stresses of teaching and a number of tools to help me deal with them. It was also a great networking opportunity to get to know beginning teachers. I recommend the workshop to all pre-service teachers.”
