The “All Things E.Q.” program is an excellent opportunity for our school culture in all grade levels. The younger students will learn the basics steps and the language used in this program. As they move up in grade levels they will eventually have the opportunity to be E.Q. Ambassadors in this program as our 6th graders will be doing this year. The best part of this whole program is that all humans are acknowledged and will feel they are a part of a positive culture. This program will provide them with communication skills that will benefit them as they become productive members of society. As a current 3rd grade teacher this “All Things EQ” program will enhance my classroom management, and for that reason I will be using the program so my students will all feel that they are somebody. As stated in a poster from the program “Together Everyone Achieves More”, I truly believe when students work together we are more successful in all aspects of our lives.

Danna’s (All Things, E.Q.) presentation helped me realize aspects of my teaching that need to change so the students will be more successful. Her simple method will reap myriad benefits in the future.
Gretchen, 4th Grade Teacher
I spent the morning learning from Danna in an E.Q. professional development. I am currently a few months away from obtaining my Master’s in Instructional Design and Technology, so watching and learning from Danna is especially inspiring for me. She continues to impress me every time I get the opportunity to learn from her. She brings a sense of positivity to the campus that I greatly appreciate. Her method of using humor and pulling a room to her attention using mixed methods is like no one I have ever seen. She is truly a professional in her field. She sticks to the content she comes to present, starts right on time, and ends right on time. She respects everyone in the room and assures everyone respects others as well. I would love to see what she can do with a group of students! I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the All Things, E.Q. program and Danna!
Jenny, Kindergarten Teacher
Thank you so much for the time you spent with us this morning! I appreciate ways to “change it up” every year and this is the answer to my prayers. The ideas presented were great and are easily adapted to my classroom culture as it doesn’t require me to prepare anything!
I agree that we really need to remember and drive home that we are all human (administrators, students, teachers, and parents). On Curriculum Night, I plan on sharing some of your concepts with my students and parents to let them know what will be the norm. I am looking forward to you showing and helping me become a better teacher!
Lorelei Andrade, 2nd Grade Teacher
Thank you so much for making All Things E.Q. so easy and ready to implement for our staff and the community we serve! The techniques of your program are highly effective and will make our students better human beings. I am looking forward to our school becoming more of a T.E.A.M. as we work together to provide a positive atmosphere and a welcoming environment for students to learn. You bring such a refreshing touch to education.
Nancy Holly, Reading Specialist, Arrowhead Elementary
Danna presented an incredible and informative training (All Things, E.Q.) at Arrowhead Elementary this morning. I had a chance to speak with her before and after her presentation. She is so experienced, knowledgeable, and has such a winning personality! She is great and, after her lesson to our staff, I am equipped with great ideas for teaching this year and I am motivated to start now!! Superior work – superior teacher!
Steve McAllister, Arrowhead Elementary – General Music and Choir Teacher, Arizona State University – Professor of Trombone (Jazz)
Danna is a motivational speaker who makes you feel like she understands you because she does. She has actually been a classroom teacher who shares great ideas that can be implemented without any prep work.
Lori Nemeth, 4th grade teacher
I have learned “doable” practices from Danna Evans. Her program is on target with teachers and students. Each time Danna visits our campus, I learn something new to put into practice the next day. I look forward to another visit from Danna. She is wonderful.
Melanie Warren, Arrowhead Elementary School
Danna’s presentation was interesting, motivating, and inspirational. Her ideas will be very easy to implement and will help every faculty member and student on campus. Her presentation exemplified what a positive, safe, and encouraging campus should look like. I believe that Arrowhead elementary school will benefit greatly from her.
Jaclyn, 3rd grade teacher
“Mrs. Evans brought All Things E.Q. to our school after really listening to our needs. I was impressed with her classroom management and the active involvement she brought out in my kiddos. This material enhanced the culture in our classroom. I think this material will continue to aid these kids as they become productive and happy adults! Not to mention, how much it helped me!”
