“Rita Schiano is a fabulous speaker! She is dynamic, passionate, fun and very engaging. Her direct delivery of information is refreshing- the audience was very focused and several parents were taking notes! I could have listened to her speak for hours!! Rita has a way of making people comfortable and giving them the confidence to share and ask questions. Everyone came away with tips to try at home to promote positive changes and to build resiliency in ourselves and our children. We are hoping to invite her to return for another parent program soon! ” ~ Lisa Meunier RN, M.Ed, Burgess Elementary School Nurse
