I absolutely loved this training. It was a great learning experience and also a lot of fun. I am glad they made me attend.  We are now adopting this into our program and policy council.....let's do it again! - Mary Glassford

We were wowed by the activities and wonderful, dedicated trainers. It was so much fun! I wish I could dance like Choosy!  Can't wait to train staff and parents. We will be busy this summer developing it!  Thank you, thank you, thank you! - Kristi Engstrom

This training made me look at the physical activity we offer our children, and what I do! I have brought back what we learned, and the kids love it. It is so great to see them so happy to move......ALL OUR HEARTS SAY "THANK YOU!" - Janelle

I thought that this training was AWESOME! We are looking forward to implementing this into our current practices. I want to thank all the trainers for the terrific job that they did. - Rebecca Mhley

The training was awesome, fun and very motivating!  I returned to the classroom and we all started moving, moving, moving. The children LOVE Choosy. Some children who rarely moved before are starting to participate in activities with smiles. The children beg for Choosy songs and parents report they're coming home tired-can I hear an OO-AAH!- MaDonna Baldwin

My heart says "Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!" This is going to change the way I teach in the classroom. Looking forward to the next training! - Debby McCammond

IMIL was the best training session I have ever attended because of the fact that I learned and had fun at the same time! We presented IMIL at our Parent Committee Meeting and parents excitedly participated singing, moving, and signing. We cannot wait to share this exciting program throughout our agency. Thank you all for the great work you do! - Aileen Ney

We came back from the training so excited and spilling over with enthusiasm for IMIL! We have presented it to our Health Service Advisory Committee and management staff. We have had several teachers that have already revisited their routines to incorporate more movement. We are re-doing our menu to have more involvement with the children making snacks in the classroom and making nutrition a daily activity. Thank you so much for your training. - Mary Langford

We have waited a long time for something like this to come along. Thank you Linda Carson for an excellent healthy, physical and nutrional activity program. Our team is very excited to go around to our tribal sites and share what we learned from the training conference IMIL. - Ruth Goorhouse
