“I can honestly say that I will never teach Shakespeare the same way again! I was inspired, engaged, entertained, and I don’t remember the last time I laughed so hard during a Shakespeare class. I left your workshop feeling extremely motivated to be a better teacher and my love for Shakespeare grew even more.” Anja Zulic, English/ELL teacher at Alpha Secondary

“Wow, Mary is an inspired practitioner…..the type of work that changed the way I entered the school on Monday morning.” Jason Donaldson, Gulf Islands Secondary School
