"Reducing anxiety is essential to our profession – we can’t keep letting teens/students become anxiety-riddled flesh blobs from so much testing. Testing may be necessary, but there are ways to mitigate that stress. Nick provided solutions in this session that were totally practical and easy to take home and implement. Some sessions just talk at you but don’t give you anything you can actually use. This was the opposite. I know I am not the only one who felt this way because during and after the session I heard things like, “This was the best session here,” “They need this at every ACAC,” and “I am totally going to do this stuff with my students.” It was exactly what every session should be: simple and easy to digest,practical applications we can apply in our jobs, and full of energy and audience participation."
