Comments from individuals who have attended one of my classes:

“This was one of our best library sessions ever. Ms. Brouillard deserves praise for her professional and friendly manner of preparation and presentation of materials.”

“Kelly does a great job presenting the info to the class. They always leave feeling much better about how to find information and where to start.”

“Kelly was detailed and clear in her presentation. The workshop was even better than I expected.”

“Kelly’s pleasant manner and interesting details really kept my interest and that of the students as well. Several of the students even made a point to tell me how much the presentation helped them. Thanks for taking your time to help us.”

“Kelly did the workshop and gave us information that thoroughly covered the topic along with giving us some other pertinent information. She even volunteered to give us a tour afterward as we had not had a chance to take one yet. Awesome experience.”

“Kelly made it very easy to understand; very patient and very warm.”
