I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your session on Brain-based learning last week in New Orleans!! It was absolutely the best one I attended all weekend.
If your keynote was all that I had attended at the conference that would have been enough for me to say that going to New Orleans was worth it!
Dear Dr. Wesson, I enjoyed every minute of your speech at the NSTA conference in New Orleans. I was furiously taking notes when you indicated that you would have the presentation on your website; so then I sat back, relaxed, and thoroughly enjoyed your discussion.
Thank you so much!I am the Director of STEM Outreach for the New Mexico State University College of Ed. and we continually provide professional development opportunities for teachers. Your information is so relevant! Thank you!!!
I must let you know that in my correspondence to the Virgin Islands Commissioner of Education concerning my experiences at the NSTA conference, I cited your presentation as the highlight of my trip.
Thank you very much Dr. Wesson. You are really a great inspiration to me. Sharing your extensive research with us is a blessing to us.
You have given me more resources to use! We would love to have you come and talk with our teachers. YOU are wonderful! Thank you!
The presentation was awesome!
Iattended your keynote at NSTA in New Orleans.What a wonderful engaging talk!
Thank you for your inspiration!
Again, your lecture was one of the highlights at an excellent conference.When I report back to my colleagues, I will be citing your lecture heavily.
I can’t stop thinking about your excellent NSTA presentation!
Your NSTA talk last week was FANTASTIC.
I wanted to thank you for a wonderful presentation the other day.I have not been able to stop thinking about the implications the information you shared has/will have on education.I took several pieces back to my staff the very next day.
If you are in need of a small middle school to conduct research at, or just want to visit I would love to host you at View Ridge Middle School.
The best presentation that I’ve ever seen at a conference!
You have so much research and knowledge to share that I wondered how you were going to package bits of that information in such a short time, but you did it. I was fired up....you are a great teacher
I thoroughly enjoyed your session at this week's conference in New Orleans.
I think often of your presentation and have referred to it multiple times.Thank you so much for such valuable information.I am hopeful for the future, knowing that there are such excellent, caring individuals like you, working to improve the educational system and approach.
I so enjoyed your talk and am anxious to share information with my teachers.Thanks again for all you do for science education.
Big thanks! You made a great impression on me that will in turn affect my students here at the Governor's Academy in MA. I am soon to become dept. chair, so I will be sure to share your ideas with the teachers in my dept so their students can also benefit.
I was present at the NSTA conference in New Orleans this past week.I truly enjoyed your lecture on learning how the brain works.I have two questions.First, can you send me the PowerPoint from the conference?Second can you guide me to more information to help with strategies for the classroom in reference to the brain-based research that is out there?
Thanks so much for your great presentation.I had heard so much about you, and you really lived up to your reputation.
Thank you again for sharing your wisdom with us at NSTA. I found your speech very enlightening.

I loved this workshop. Not only was the subject matter interesting, his presentation was engaging as well!

I enjoyed the interaction that took place throughout the presentation. The activities at the tables were meaningful and each served a particular purpose.
Great workshop on a tough topic. Did not think it would be this interesting yet it was presented very well. Did an awesome job in keeping us focused and help finding connections. Thanks!
I'm gonna have to say, that I walked away with a variety of strategies to help my kids learn and enjoy what they are learning. I really loved the seminar.
I enjoyed it so much!!!
Excellent presentation! My thought - if students can't read they won't be able to pass any classes! Thought is important in order to read, but you have to know words in order to think - again, reading is very important.
Learned a lot!!
The workshop was incredibly resourceful.
Loved it! Made lots of connections - very informative - Always engaged.
So glad I came, it was well worth my time.
I really enjoyed this. Would love to know how to effect change in our schools (as a parent) from memorization/textbook-learning-focused to engaged learning with kids and inquisitive and critical thinkers.
Such a great speaker.
Relevant information, great examples, wonderful speaking voice. Thank you, Kenneth Wesson!
I have attended Distinguished Educator Series before, and learned and enjoyed everyone.

The day flew by! I'm so glad that Dr. Wesson connected the knowledge of brain function with what we should do in the classroom.
Great hands-on activities.
Wow, it makes sense of what I'm seeing in classrooms.
This workshop was amazing. I learned so much to help others and my family (son and daughter). Thanks for everything.
It was awesome and I learned a great deal of practical application in my classroom starting immediately!
