 Praise from teachers

SETH was A M A Z I N G! I still can’t believe how motivated he got my students about writing….In 15 years of teaching I have never seen so much figurative language. Thank you SETH!!!!!

Tonya Hackett, Chappelow Elementary School




[SETH’s workshops] reminded me that all students can be writers. We need to continually teach them to be confident about themselves and in their writing.

Robyn Haskett, Greeley West High School




I loved the way SETH introduced the writing skills to the students. Their writing improved overall and their excitement for writing grew.
