"aligned beautifully with our curriculum…"

It was a fantastic presentation! The kids loved it and the information presented was clear, concise, and aligned beautifully with our curriculum. Velya was outstanding!! She is, by far, the best presenter we've had in all the years we've been doing in-school field trips. She was engaging and funny and the kids loved her!

I just wanted to follow up with a big "Thank You" for a wonderful two days. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed you and your Owl Pellets. I will highly recommend the program!  
Hopefully our paths will cross again. It was such a pleasure meeting you, Velya!

"You really have it down…"

I really appreciate your professional and laid back manner. The kids were totally engaged and having a ball. You really have it down – the simple steps, the funny memorable ways you get them to listen – how you make it fun for all the different ages – and you are FUN! Hope to have you back soon!

"Our sons positively bubbled with interest & excitement…"

Velya’s style is more than engaging - our sons positively bubbled with interest & excitement after her classes, and they enjoyed researching and preparing for her course modules. Our sons are growing into interesting, fascinated, and engaged young men, not least because of Mrs. Jancz-Urban’s programs, her love for education, integrity, and hard work. We strongly recommend her as an educator and teacher.

"My daughter was inspired to look deeper into the world around her…"
We wanted to thank you for a wonderful week. My daughter was inspired to look deeper into the world around her. As a parent, I was thrilled, too. It was great fun hearing the shampoo updates. Thank you for a 'learning-filled' AND fun week!

"You encourage curiosity and you support and guide the natural desire kids have to search for the answers…"
Katie is off to the AgriSciences program at Nonnewaug in the fall. I give you much of the credit for her early interest in Science. Your classes provided her with a strong, exciting & positive foundation in her science education. Thank you. Some of the most important things I think you do well in your teaching is you encourage curiosity and you support and guide the natural desire kids have to search for the answers to the questions created by their curiosity.
