What teachers say about Kelly's workshops
"I think that this was a fantastic workshop.... I knew nothing about this and I thought I learned a lot. I loved the amount of hands on time we had and Ms. Powers answered all of my questions." - Charlotte R. from Revere, MA
"Thank you for this wonderful opportunity (no cost). It was a good mix of hands on, modeling and peer collaboration. Kelly Powers was very approachable, knowledgeable, interesting... It helped to make more sense of the unplugged lessons." - Nen L. from Holliston, MA
