“I just did a package with Jarrod to help us deal with [my son’s] tantrums. [He] would not get his way and he would go completely limp, lie on the floor and not move, cry the whole time. If we ignored him he would turn destructive to objects in the room. Turns out the best strategy is talking to him about what is making him sad in a calm voice—seems easy enough, but there are nuances to the approach and Jarrod helped us come up with the strategies. Now [my son will] cry briefly, expect my responsive inquiry, answer me, and move on. Huge improvement! Jarrod has these reasonably priced packages that include 3–4 phone sessions and an intro, and he takes great notes and send you all the bullets via email afterwards.”

“Your workshop? Awesome. I enjoyed it so much, your enthusiasm, the flow of the information, the slides you included … What I loved the most, though, was that it was like, documentation with heart. So many workshops about documentation are dry … Yours, on the other hand, was REAL. Lots of social-emotional stuff, for the kids AND the parents … You’re a really good speaker.”
—Samantha, workshop attendee

“You have been all an ideal preschool teacher should be: loving, patient, funny, consistent, and creative. Our family treasures you and all you gave to [our son] and our community this year. Your gifts of teaching love, trust and respect, as well as perseverance did not go unnoticed and will help prepare [our son] for all that he will encounter next year and beyond. Simply put, you are THE BEST!”
—Maya, preschool parent

“Jarrod Green is an enthusiastic, efficient, and dynamic professor. He clearly knows the profession and discipline and he seems to have a great deal of respect for it. His dedication to children is apparent. The students were energized by Jarrod and they had an obvious respect for him and his work. DVC is very fortunate to have Jarrod on staff. He is an outstanding professional.”
—Deya Hill, Diablo Valley College, Co-chair of Early Childhood Education Department

“It has been my honor to drop my kids off in your class every day this year. You have been a constant, a role model, a teacher to our whole family, and a true professional. Thank you for your patience and your guidance.”
—Linsey, preschool parent
