Read What Educators Say About Courses with Francoise Netter

Here is what educators and administrators have to say:

Thank you for being such a great instructor. Your enlightenment has such a profound effect on others. Thank you for all you do.” — D. Kaiser

“Thank you Francoise for letting me express myself in this paper.  I will miss you. You are loved and an amazing person and teacher.” — J. Tarnowski-Marks

“This class has been one of the most beneficial classes I have taken over the course of my twenty year career.” — R. Eisenbach

“I think I selected two very interesting courses to study!! Thanks for providing me the resources for my personal development.” — B. O’Brien

“Thanks for the class and the mind expansion. I love it!” — J. Meere

“Thank you so much for offering this course for educators and believing in what we do. Your work and gifts are so unique. I really enjoyed meeting you, reading your work, and finally celebrating getting your CD on my phone.” — A. Plitnick

“Thank you so much… this class was truly inspiring to me, and I am continually doing some major thinking about this topic. I appreciated so much the discussion and the insight.” — C. Hutchins

“After reading about stress on one of Francoise’s blogs, I am that much more motivated to find ways to reduce stress and focus on nourishment. She states that through medical research, we know that stress is the # 1 cause of immune deficiency, disease and even premature death. (, April 23rd, 2013) … Francoise often asks us to ‘dig deep’ and find a connection between ourselves and the topic being studied. This is one of my favorite parts of the reflection process in all of her classes because it’s about being introspective and finding that place that we don’t often shine light on. All of the classes I’ve taken from Francoise is facilitating in aligning myself with the ‘sweet spot’ of life. I often find that if I’m balanced, nourished, and strengthened, then I am a much better teacher. It is my hope that I can teach my students by being an example of what it means to live a full life, with my body nourished and my mind strengthened.” – E.Munoz

“I also wanted to let you know how helpful our closing activity was for me.  I am taking over my school’s dance program this fall, and I plan to use a similar activity to start out my year and ‘free’ my students in their bodies.  You are an inspiration…” –Susan Simonds

“Thank you for re-kindling the creative spirit in me. Creativity is the soul of true education. This course helped me to think of creativity in different modalities. I can now look for ways to incorporate creative approaches to my normal lesson plans.” — M. Arolllelo

“I really enjoyed the class! It was really refreshing to focus on creativity for a change. Françoise was well prepared, articulate, welcoming and inspiring. I enjoyed the articles and activities in the class. Thanks so much.” — Michele N.

“Excellent class, but I only got two hours with Françoise. She has a depth of knowledge and passion that is rare. I want more!” — L. Becker

“…Thus, nourishing the body and strengthening the mind are essential to the classroom environment because it creates a human being who is receptive, responsive, and renewing to the factors of creativity, motivation, inspiration, and love within the classroom. I loved the way this idea is phrased in Movement for the Mind: ‘Connecting to the body while focusing the mind allows you to capture the moment and pause in a space that can align you physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. This experience of internal alignment causes profound insights, and can lead to significant physical and behavioral changes.’ With the mind and body in a healthy, connected place, the learning environment and the capacity of the mind are vastly improved.” — B. Dayton

“This class was fabulous due to your high energy, knowledge of your topic and giving us tools to use in our lives. Everyone, at any age or level, can learn from you!! I will pass on the information on this class to all teachers! Thank you.” — L. Steirt

“Thank you for a great class last night, I felt energized and have ideas that I can put into place today at school!  What a great group of people, you always have a knack for bringing out the best in us.” — S. Ohlson, M.A.

“Hi Francoise. Thank you again for an amazing and quite frankly uplifting class. So much of the content is downright perfect timing for what is unfolding in my life at the moment… I tell you this because sometimes life hands you what you need without you knowing it, I am pretty sure these classes are speaking to me at the right time.  Thank you for offering these topics to us.  It means a great deal.” — A. Erdrington, Educator

“Francoise, your class has made a huge impact on me in my daily life and on how I have chosen to approach this new world of uncertainty I find myself in…  I truly feel grateful and blessed.  Thank you so much for opening my door to true survivors like yourself, Alice Herz, and Viktor Frankl.” — J. Holsomback

“ ‘Calmness is strength’. Wow, that phrase is powerful! This class and this reflection process have given me new skills to navigate life and enhance my teaching.  In addition to this new skill, I appreciated the advice given to us by you in the class that it is not our responsibility to make the kids learn. It is our responsibility to plant the seed and guide them in their own journey. Even though we know that as educators, we sometimes lose sight of that concept and feel an enormous amount of pressure to help the students be successful. Well, what is successful, anyway? It is different for all of us but standardized testing and high stakes evaluations have skewed our outlook on education and what our role is in educating our youth. Today, I have a new view on my students – they are a joy to teach and they are all beautiful in their own way. I can plant the seed and encourage them on their educational journey – that is what I can control. To answer the question of whether resilience is innate or learned I believe that we are all born with an innate ability to survive – it is instinctual. However, I also believe that being able to see the positive side of a situation or find a deeper meaning to suffering is also a skill that is learned from parents, family, and mentors. Thanks for a fantastic class.” — H.VanDePol

“I have really enjoyed my October classes with you. Thank you for helping me to look deeper into my spirit and soul during this time of year. It has helped me tremendously as a person and an educator but most importantly it has given me a lot to ‘chew on’ over the next few weeks and months. I am looking forward to further reflection and growth.” – K. Hannahoe

“Francoise, I loved this class and found it very valuable. Thank you for sharing all of this new information with us. I loved the videos and the assignments.” – D. Povenzano-Doll

“This course came at such a crucial time in my life. It gave me more things to think about and how to reframe what I’m doing and saying to my high school kids, though the lens of resilience. They so need it in their lives. Thanks so much!” – M. Chimento
