Here is what teachers and school administrators are saying about Yes, You Can!
“Mr. Bachrach’s message was so profound, the children are now more comfortable discussing their self-confidence and self-esteem. Our children are understanding that it is acceptable to be different and it is humbling to accept differences as well. Mr. Bachrach is a positive influence to all communities and I appreciate his powerful message to our children of this impressionable age.”
