Deanne presented to L-OADN on teaching conceptually and it was an excellent program. She is able to present the concepts in a manner that everyone understood and could take back and apply to developing their own program. She is personable and fun and makes learning easy. Highly recommended to other faculty looking for guidance in developing conceptual programs.” Joan Breeden
