"Once again I feel blessed to have met you and honored to be part of KDSL. Thank you for this opportunity to bring Cognitive Coaching to Dubai and work side by side with you and your colleagues. I so enjoyed our conversations and I am quite sure you will create a new niche wherever you go and remain true to your strong core values."

"I am a third grade teacher 30 miles outside of Chicago. I literally just watched your video on Got History (12:00am std) as I am preparing to teach my students about The American Revolution. I was reminded of the magnitude of how social studies can remain engaging. Thanks for the refresher!"
— Third Grade Teacher, 2010

"I met Kevin in Dubai at a workshop on education and social media. I had recently published my first children's book "My Letter to President Barack Obama" and we discussed different ways to incorporate my book into classrooms. I asked if he could create curricula for my book. I was very impressed with his work and professionalism. He did a fantastic job! Kevin is creative, energetic, original and very generous with his ideas and time."

"I am glad I had the opportunity to work with each of you at the schools in Beirut and Saida. I believe we as a team helped each school with their journey to be better and to do more for their students. And I feel I had a chance to learn a good deal during the visits. Finally, it was enjoyable to work and have fun with you during our long days together. This all adds up to a memorable experience in Lebanon."
