My key question is: "What would you like to accomplish as a result of me speaking to and working with your group?"
Nobody in our family has a better understanding of the ideas and philosophy of my father than Craig Impelman. - Nan Wooden
Craig---You're the best . I've always said that you were the one to pass on Dad's teaching, you know Dad's Pyramid better than anyone . You have that quality & spirit that makes people of all ages listen. So glad that you want to do this because you are the one that should. You are a TEACHER. - Jim Wooden
Thank you very much for coming out and speaking with our students.
We cannot reinforce the Wooden traits enough. You were able to capture the student's attention and keep them engaged for a long time (which is hard with the little ones). I overheard teachers talking about how surprised they were that you were able to elicit responses from the students and how involved they were.
Again, thank you for coming out and making a difference in so many students' lives! - Jacque Galitski
