"The BEST assembly I've been to in a long time. Highly energetic!" Miss Mulrenin, teacher, Cassell Elementary School, Chicago, IL
"My 4th grade daughter who saw your assembly was telling me about something that had happened at school one day, and she held up her finger and said, "True story!" I looked at her sort of confused and she said, "Mr. Jacoby says that every time he tells a story." So I guess you left an impression. And a mannerism!"
