Hear From Attendees of My Keynotes

Don’t take my word for it, take a look at what attendees of my professional development events had to say.

All the participants left each of your sessions with their chin a little higher and proud to be a member of this profession.  Your audience interaction and participation were just what everyone needed to jumpstart the day.

Learning that I am creative and that my children are too was a very positive experience for me. This workshop provided me with many new and meaningful ways to nurture creative thinking in young children.

Dr. Isbell visited our classrooms and helped us improve our space. Her suggestions were appropriate, low cost, and would work. In the workshop on environments, she commented on the great things we were doing in our classrooms while providing new possibilities for us.

Dr. Isbell was the keynote speaker at our 5th annual symposium entitled Play: Where Learning Begins. The 175 educators in attendance thoroughly enjoyed her presentation and breakout session. She was knowledgeable, entertaining, and kept everyone’s attention. The next morning she delighted our preschool parents with an intimate coffee talk on ways to nurture their child’s play. I absolutely recommend her to any organization looking for an expert in early childhood education.
