LindaPhotoSelfCrop70Mirror“Thank you for your ongoing support. Your new class will be as amazed and grateful as I am at the willingness you have to throw out a rope when even a former student asks. You were not kidding when you said you would be there for us. I believe strongly in this program and its amazing effect on participants. I appreciate my own group experience, all the ready-to-use handouts, and the encouragement. I think teaching GAB is my way of bringing love and peace into this crazy world!” Linda Cofiell, GAB Instructor, Maryland, Email: cofiell@comcast.com

KitBestPhoto“You’ve been just an incredible instructor.  I love your online personality…it comes across the internet as genuine, warm, and caring.  While some people worry that teaching over the internet can be “distant” or “removed,” I believe that, instead, it reveals your true personality around the world.  Using the internet simply breaks down the distance barrier!” Kathleen Birmingham, GAB Instructor, Arizona, Web: https://www.facebook.com/kathleen.birmingham.56

IMG_0454_2“I’m officially reporting in that my 10-week GAB class at Salemtowne Retirement Community is a wrap! At the last class I thanked the group for being my first “graduating class.” They were surprised that I didn’t have prior experience, so obviously the training and materials work well. Now this group wants to keep going. The facility also wants me to start another group. This is good!” Shelley Rider, GAB Instructor, North Carolina, Email: shelleyrider1@gmail.com
