"Stu Shaffer is an energetic and enthusiastic speaker! His hands on, audience participation activities kept our students on their toes and excited about the new ideas they had to take home to their schools. Many schools have used the activities learned and had great success at pepfests and assemblies. Stu's workshops are worth their weight in gold."
