About Alva    –    Contact

"Your training and skill in group facilitation, together with your knowledge of program development were apparent to all of us and assisted us in moving forward with our work."
–John Kress, Marin County Board of Supervisors
"The way you explored the practical applications of children's psychology and development to a classroom set-up was quite fascinating to all of us. The students never thought of their cultures in such context. Long after you left, students continued discussing about similarities and differences among their respective cultures, sharing different ways of presenting their cultures to various age-group children. Thanks for your invaluable presentations."
–Lilian C. Koziol, Director of Programs, International House at the University of California.
