“Ben was absolutely terrific! The students really took to him and were very into the whole program. I asked each of my classes if they liked the “Chalk Guy” and all answered yes, enthusiastically! He was funny and kind, but was also able to get the message across that we wanted. It was a terrific way to start the school year! Even the teachers didn’t complain about losing time in class!”

“His presentation was one of the best, most motivational PD’s that my
teachers have had. Ben’s presentation was uplifting, brought recognition to all the hard work teachers do and to the power they have in making a
difference in childrens’ lives. With the stress of back to school preparations,
Ben was able to come in and help the teachers forget the stresses and just be uplifted and entertained. He made his presentation very applicable and
personal for my faculty and staff!!”
