I hired Mr. Don Everhard to present an in service at MHLT Elementary School regarding creating a safe climate at school.  I heard great things about Mr. Everhard before the in service.  I heard he was knowledgeable, a great communicator and sensitive to the various needs of adult learners.  I was very impressed with his presentation to say the least.  My teachers were motivated and inspired to create a culture of safety and trust.  I've had many teachers thank me for this presentation.  I feel our school year is off to a positive start and I believe Don's presentation set the tone for the year.  Oh by the way, our staff appreciated his sense of humor and compassionate heart.  I highly recommend Mr. Everhard to speak with your employees regarding creating a joyful, rich learning environment at your school or work place.   Best Regards, Rob Way, Principal
