“I learned a lot from the principal training, and am left with a flavor for more. I think all teachers should undergo your training, and I am very grateful.”

(Director from Brooklyn)

“I have to tell you and the entire staff that the training program was simply – wow! on every level. It was just wonderful. The content was precise, your approach was patient and non-judgmental, which I do not take for granted, and the experience was rewarding.”

(Hebrew director from Manhattan)

“Thank you for the principal training. I have been with iTaLAM for many years, and I see your development, and am very impressed with your attention and response to shifting needs. I learned a lot and enjoyed getting to know new principals.”


(Director from Florida)

“You are always full of great surprises! Your content is very interesting, and above all I love hearing principals from around the world and learning from the struggles of other professionals. Here in France the situation is complex, and I felt I received the support I needed from the principal in New York, with whom I developed a friendship.”

(Principal from Paris)
