Susan and Jeff are fun, energetic, and have a passion for helping educators meet the needs of all students.”

“Susan has an uncanny ability to engage her audience and involve them in her presentation. Her seminars are as entertaining as they are informative.”

– Mark Ita

“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
Bow School District

“I can’t thank you enough for your enthusiasm, patience, commitment and attention to all of the details throughout the planning process. Teachers and administrators appreciated the concrete ideas, examples and the power of lively small group discussions. All were able to reflect, refresh, and replenish their instructional strategies toolbox.”

Susan’s passion for the topics she speaks on is very evident.

“Susan’s hands-on and relevant delivery of material and comfort with sharing personal experiences as an educator cultivated confidence in our teachers. 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

“I was fortunate to work with Susan … as she helped us to implement the co-teaching model in our classrooms. Susan provided high quality, sustained, whole-staff training in differentiation strategies and in instructional strategies for promoting successful co-teaching instructional team building. She worked very hard to provide support and to help our teachers develop as co-teachers. Her large group professional development sessions were supported by individualized in-the-classroom instructional coaching. 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
North Lenoir High School, LaGrange, NC

“Susan Fitzell’s workshops are by far the most superior I have ever attended. You can feel the energy level and excitement in the room. The information and the strategies she presents are very beneficial for all students.”

– Nancy Price
Director of Special Education

“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

“I could only attend one day of the Convention this year, but I’m glad it was Saturday! I thought your session was marvelous. I loved your ‘hot’ opening, and you did a brilliant job of weaving stories into your content.”

– Mike Schmidtmann

“Fabulous speaker and presenter. Down to earth and knowledgeable. Susan presented great material that will be useful moving forward in a co-teaching or any teaching model. She was thorough and the information is meaningful”.

– Andrea Dougherty

“Susan was an amazing presenter. She was open to discussion and personable. The content was superb and I walked away with several take-aways that were easy to implement. I would recommend this presenter to anyone!”

– Jillian Duval

“We all know we need learning organizations, and Susan takes that concept to a whole different level. She talks from a place of really understanding about learning. Imagine having a corporation where each individual knows exactly how they learn and can learn for themselves. We’d have a self-learning organization. Amazing! Susan shares her message through stories that will make you laugh, and some that challenge you. She’s very entertaining while you are being blown away by a whole new concept of the learning individual.”
