Malcom ES, Waldord, MD
"Students were highly engaged throughout the entire program. The Presenter used excellent early childhood vocabulary for our Head Start through 2nd grade students to understand and connect through their points of view. The presenter used an eclectic myriad of information that flowed effortlessly and made sense to students as to why the different food groups and portions were important for their health and their bodies. The presenter connected with all of the students using music and activities that they are accustomed to throughout their personal lives at home. Teachers enjoyed the entertainment, information, and engagement that was captivated by all students. We appreciate the show and would love a visit next year!"

"I am a preschool teacher at Greenwood. We don't usually attend assemblies because of our students limited attention span. I didn't have to worry with this assembly. Everything about it was so well thought out. The information was presented in such a way that the children were able to picture how proper food and exercise is important to maintain a heathly body. I felt it was a great reinforcement for me too!! I would highly recommend this program to any elementary school!!"

That was clearly a result of the message Brian shared in his program. Excellent show."

The students were mesmerized by his magic and both entertained and educated by his "five a day, every day" bFit program! I have received nothing but positive feedback. I even had parent's write saying that their children were talking about the assembly and what they learned for days :o) Brain truly captured everyone's attention! His program was very interactive & everyone walked out of the auditorium with smiles! I would highly recommend this program to other schools."
C.V Starr Intermediate, Brewster, NY
"The feedback from the staff was overwhelmingly positive. I asked the staff if they would recommend the presentation. Some comments include the following:
1) YES! This was a man who knew his audience and knew how to capture their attention. If the kids got loud or overly excited, he knew how to bring them down a notch. He was awesome!
2) I thought he was great. Students were engaged and enjoyed it. It was the perfect amount of time.
3)Hi! My class loved it! They were talking about it after and trying to figure out how he did his tricks! I think it embedded math concepts in a way that the students didn’t even realize that they were learning they just thought they were having fun! It was also great that it had music and he interacted with the audience constantly! I hope definitely recommend it!
4) Yes! The students really enjoyed it and talked about it all day. He had great control over their behavior as well. I think it would be great to do in the beginning of the year to really emphasize the importance of math.
5)I thought it was fantastic!! He was very engaging and did really fun stuff all while the kids were learning. He had wonderful audience control and was able to keep the kids focused and quiet when it was time to be quiet. I would absolutely recommend him and hope that we will have him back next year!
6) My kids really enjoyed the presentation "Math Magic". I definitely thought he kept them engaged the entire time. It was a great way to wrap up the year, plus they learned something from it!
7) I enjoyed the presentation. He had good behavior management and kept the kids engaged. The tricks were fun, and it was good that math was emphasized, especially probability."

"I was not able to see the assembly personally this year, but I have already been receiving feedback through emails, comments from other P.T.A. board members, teachers, students, etc. that everyone at the school absolutely had a terrific time with the representative that you sent to the school... I have been informed that the teachers were extremely happy with the information and the way it was presented to the students. I am sure I will be contacting you again this coming school year to do some other assemblies for us again. Thank you so much for coming out to the school."
