"Dear Dr. Hattie,

I want to thank you for helping Brandon prepare for the speech contest! He couldn't have won 1st place without your help. Your guidance has helped him tremendously. I can tell the difference in his movement and gestures, he was able to make a much more interesting speech after the practices!

Again, thank you for your time and energy helping the kids improve."
