What Schools Are Saying...
"This was the best cultural arts assembly we've ever had."
"Katie's program was engaging, relevant, fun and honest. The kids connected with her immediately and have been talking about the program for weeks. We can't wait to have her back."
"I LOVE that Katie was a teacher. She knew how to get the attention of the 800 students in the assembly and keep them intrigued for the entire hour. When she was talking, you could hear a pin drop - the kids were hanging on her every word! When she was singing, the entire group was singing right along with her. The message was life changing not only for the students, but for me as a teacher."
