“We owe you a major THANK YOU for a wonderful performance this past Friday! It was so nice to see someone who has very clearly dedicated time and effort into perfecting a craft.  You are exactly the kind of role model we, as teachers, love to have come in and visit!  A young person with whom the students can identify, from their own community, doing something unique and challenging… and making it COOL!  The right message of perseverance and dedication yielding an amazing pay-off!  Thank you very much on behalf of the students and staff here at E. J. James Public School!”

– Carrie Tennant, Grade 3 Teacher, E.J. James Public School


“Thanks so much for coming to Oakwood and sharing your talent and your message with our students. They loved the show and I loved the message about taking risks and making mistakes in order to grow. You can bet we’ll be referring you in the weeks and months to come as we encourage them to continue to push themselves that little bit further. Thanks for continuing to do this important work on behalf of Halton kids.”

I must say, you are FANTASTIC.  The kids and parents were raving about you. Thomas was in awe.  When he was going to bed tonight he kept talking about you, and “how amazing that was that you didn’t cut your hand like the apple.”  Thank you very much for coming to Thomas’ birthday party, you are one of a kind!”
