Early Childhood Educator's Conference, Sandy held the crowd spellbound. Her timely topic,
"Four Keys to Personal Success" was described by conference attendees as very
inspirational, uplifting and real. Sandy's workshop was packed with enthusiastic
participants, wanting more of her. Sandy's intelligence, wisdom, sensitivity and wonderful
sense of humor will touch your heart and change your life forever. She is an outstanding
speaker, gifted educator and respected author."

|Sandy is an incredible teacher! Her solutions are
applicable, practical and taught in a way that you can immediately apply. Every educator
can learn from her loving philosophy and applications for effectively working with
today's children. I learn from her every time I am in her presence.

struggle with all the tried and true adjectives, and none are enough. Whether she is
working with parents, students or staff members, the only appropriate words are, Sandy is

were listening. I am so excited that Sandy brought her excellent presentation to our

parenting workshop for us, the most often written comment under the question, 'What did
you like the least?' is IT ENDED TOO SOON."

|I cant tell you how helpful taking Sandy's
adult self-esteem classes has been to my relationship with my husband, my children and my
own life. Sandy's enthusiasm is highly contagious, her loving guidance is infinitely
healing, and the things you learn from her change your life forever.
Sunshine Preschool Coordinator, Costa Mesa, CA.
|I have had the opportunity to directly observe Sandy under
many different circumstances as; a teacher, counselor, friend and mother. She has always
proven to be professional, knowledgeable and caring in each of these roles. Sandy has
handled the complexities of working with the most difficult attendance problems in our
school; one young man had missed 23 days during the first semester. Since working with
Sandy, he has not missed one time in the last fourteen weeks. Sandy's
sense of humor and friendly personality has made her very popular with students, parents
and faculty. Sandy's humanistic approach in dealing with some very delicate and difficult
personal situations impressed me the most. She is truly a professional.

|Thanks for the wonderful day and night you gave us at Rio
Hondo on Wednesday! The students learned so much; the staff learned so much; the parents
learned so much. I was amazed at how well you motivated everyone who was touched by you.
Thanks for being so practical, so informative, so sensitive to us as human beings. You
model your message and we are all basking in your warmth.
Principal, Arcadia, CA.
|"I've been in the field of early childhood education
for 30 years. I've never had my staff or parents be so excited after having a speaker come
to our school. I HIGHLY recommend to any school or group to have Sandy McDaniel reach out
to their parents and share all her love, wisdom and knowledge with them."
Director Early Child Care Center, College Instructor.
|"For the first time, my school parents said, 'We were
given basic information that we could understand and immediately apply in our lives.' I am
so impressed with Sandy's presentation and its results that we're having her back for a Q
and A session on individual concerns."
Dr. Gwen Gross
Superintendent, Hermosa Beach Schools.
|"The numerous presentations you have given to the
parents in our district have always been outstanding. Parents leave with strategies that
can immediately be put to use in their homes. Your humorous yet serious message is well
received and leaves the parents wanting more.

you how parent more effectively. She is so good at what she does and how he presents her

|"Sandy is the epitome of what you want a keynote and
seminar speaker to be; excellent presentation and a constant, warm connection with every
person at the event. Sandy models everything she teaches. You will laugh, you will cry and
you will thank her forever for the gifts she will give you to use every day of your
OK State PTA Program Chairperson, Oklahoma
"Sandy recently gave a speaking marathon in Ponca City.
As an elementary principal, I encouraged my parents to attend her evening parenting
seminar. The two hours flew by! Sandy was interesting, told funny stories and helped
parents understand the importance of being consistent with logical consequences. Parents
were able to relate to Sandy's real life experiences and most importantly she was able to
answer questions from the audience. I was impressed that she stayed late to talk in small
groups and even individually.
I was also able to attend a half-day seminar for teachers,
counselors and others from youth oriented positions on "Enhancing Children's
I found the topic very relevant yet different from what I
had heard the previous evening. Bringing many together throughout the community gave us a
chance not only to meet but to discuss similar challenges. I endorse having Sandy McDaniel
to your community."
Nancy Niemann, Ed.D.
|"I learned so many things that I can use in every
aspect of my life. You are easy to understand and I like that you like it when we ask
challenging questions. Some teachers don't! You said you want people's lives to be easier
because of what they learn from you --mine definitely is!"
|" If you would like to get up one morning knowing you
have the necessary skills and understanding to raise your children without harming them
emotionally, run, don't walk, to this seminar! You will laugh endlessly as you discover
how to parent children who are responsible, reliable, resilient and who have a strong
sense of self-esteem."
