Testimonials 

"Melisa gave a powerful PD [professional development] on understanding temperaments in the classroom.  This information about the 4 temperaments and how best to use the information in the class has helped to transform our learning environment. From student placement to group dynamics, the information presented and great examples, including form drawing with different temperaments, have made a world of difference. Thank you, Melisa!" 
-Maryann O'Brien, 2nd-grade teacher
 
"It was so great to have Melisa come to train us at Mountain Sunrise Academy. She is a very talented and passionate teacher. She was so helpful for us new-to-Waldorf teachers. I would recommend her training to anyone." 
-Chalice Maddox, 6th-grade teacher
 
"We are so grateful that Melisa took the time to travel to our school to provide such meaningful training to our faculty as well as our parent community. The wisdom that she brought, and the way she delivered that wisdom, have made a deep impact on our whole school community. Our teachers made such meaningful connections in their understanding of 'why' we do what we do in Waldorf through our days with her, which is so much more meaningful than just "what" we do.  Everything is so very intentional in Waldorf Education, and having more of that knowledge has transformed their classrooms. After her parent evening at our school, many of the parents left with tears of joy. So many thanked us repeatedly for inviting her and commented that they felt so much inner transformation in the little time they had with her. Melisa has such a way of lovingly telling the blunt truth in a way that really communicates with the core being, without triggering defense mechanisms in anyone. We all need more of that in our lives. We hope to have her come to our school many times in the future and highly recommend her guidance.  We feel so blessed to have had this opportunity." 
-Elizabeth Bourland, Curriculum Specialist
