"Thank you for 2 years of guidance and wisdom. We are so proud of the little human that Remy is. RIE has helped us to become the parents we hoped we could be. I can't express my gratitude enough for the space you held in that classroom for both the children and parents.  It was an honor to witness the developing authenticity and capability of every child and to be a part of such a conscious group of parents.  Thank you for modeling a loving respectfulness as well as firm boundaries and limits. it has been an invaluable takeaway for me as a new parent."  February 2019

"Thank you so much for letting me observe your class. I have to say that I have never been in a toddler setting where everyone was so calm. It was so zen! You were a delight to watch with the children. You have truly put the real meaning of RIE® into practice. The way you spoke to the children it was obvious you have a true respect and love for them and what you do."
