It really helped me think about what my students are experiencing.
Got a chance to watch it on On Demand and I'm glad I did. It never really occured to me that people can be in emergency situations where something suddenly has happened to them and that's the reason they are now in poverty. I work in a more rural category than anything. Thank you for the insite.

Absolutely a great webinar dealing with a sensitive issue. Matt Bergman did a great service providing statistics and practicality, as well as an understanding of poverty empathetically towards our students.
