I learned sooo much!! The speaker was knowledgeable and passionate about the subject. I am very motivated and ready to help my students and train staff.
Wonderful training. Very informative. Highly recommended.
Ms. Marek is a great speaker; very knowledgeable and informative. This subject is a very tough topic to discuss in a public forum, but Ms. Marek made the discussion very interesting based on her own work experiences as an officer. This training was very eye opening and I learned more that I anticipated. I believe that every educator, administrator, counselor and nurse will benefit from this training.
The instructor is experienced as a criminal investigator of sex crimes and this adds credibility to the training. The instructor is knowledgeable with history of real cases.

In my opinion every person working with children should take this class – with the statistics of child sexual abuse, what they are – every one of us needs to know this information. Thank you for your dedication to children.
Barbara's seminar was insightful and well planned. She took the lid off what is usually a taboo subject and gave participants a complete overview of child abuse/child predator behaviors A-Z. She left no stone unturned. This should be a mandatory training for anyone working in education or law enforcement.
This training should be mandatory for all teachers and staff involved in education.
This training needs to be heard by all educators in my district. You are a great presenter and your experience is captivating to learn from and to listen to. Continuing education and hearing about the laws and reporting rules/policies will definitely help me to continue helping and advocating for my students who need help.

Texas Education Agency should require this training for all administrators.
Every person working with children should attend this seminar at least once. It really opens your eyes. Thank you!!

Instructor was great, integrated stories into lecture which made interesting and eye opening.
This was very informative- thanks for all the wonderful info.
Phenomenal training! Thank you for educating us!

Barbara Marek made a tough subject manageable, and she is extremely knowledgeable. I would love to have her speak to TCISD staff.
Very informative! Mrs. Marek is a great speaker who explains and teaches to our understanding. This is an area not really touched in nursing school. I think it would be very beneficial to new nurses, especially coming out of the hospital setting for 8 years to the school setting.
