“Susan Fitzell is an outstanding presenter and a great speaker. She is clear and engaging. I have seen few people with her ability to effectively work a large crowd. She is able to connect to a diverse audience. She engaged professional staff and pare-educators equally well by presenting material that was relevant to each employee’s every day work life. She is very empathetic and relates well to the audience. She is one of the few presenters I have seen that teaches about active instruction and actually models it in her own work.” – Dean S. T. Cascadden, Superintendent, Bow School District

“Susan’s training style and the information that she presents is absolutely timely, relevant, user-friendly and EFFECTIVE! imply put, Susan’s trainings provide information in a way that is fun, memorable, useful and meaningful to anyone who wants to improve outcomes for all types of learners.” -Lisa A. Burciaga Segura, Special Education Resource and Training Coordinator, NEREC

She is very knowledgeable in each topic she presents and is more than willing to share her knowledge with the audience. She clearly loves what she does and truly cares about the educational welfare of children.” – Kimberly D. Hebert, Principal, Berkley Middle School, MA

Susan’s intensive intervention and coaching services over the last three years have had a tremendous impact on student achievement in our school. With Susan’s instructional help and consistent classroom coaching support, we were able to make our Adequate Yearly Progress (A.Y.P.) target goals in reading and math for the first time in the history of our school.” – Brent Williams, Principal, North Lenoir High School, LaGrange, NC

“When the Superintendent heard Susan’s practical and empowered presentation, she made it mandatory for all of our teachers to attend. Over the course of a year and a half, we had Susan back four times. In my thirty-four years with the school district, this is the only time we have had a presenter repeat a workshop for all staff.” – Ginny Phegley, Green & Sullivan Special Education Cooperative, Linton, IN

Susan has a strong and positive ability to relate to teachers and to support and guide them with focused feedback as she becomes a member of the school’s instructional team.

“You indicated in the opening to your audience that you did not have all the answers, but you did have experiences where the implementation of strategies were
successful. This allowed the audience to embrace your message as you shared a mutual bond of being in the trenches!” –Chantal Lightenberg, Assistant to the Director of Special Services, Meade School District
