More "Character Counts" Assembly Feedback from Chicago IL Area Schools!

"Our school had Chris' Character Counts school assembly at our building to kick off our year, and our message of "Have a Heart" and living your life with strong morals and good character.  He provided some excellent large group assemblies in the morning for our primary (K-2) and intermediate (3-5).  The character counts assemblies sent a strong message that was both age and student appropriate.  In the afternoon, Chris provided individualized grade level workshops.  Chris' high energy and enthusiasm kept the students entertained throughout the entire show as he walked them through the Pillars of Good Character  through the use of puppetry, magic and hilarious behavior!  The "magic" words used throughout the show were "Choose, Lead & Succeed".  I HIGHLY recommend that you "Choose" to invite Chris' Character Counts school assembly into your building for his character building assemblies, watch Chris as he "Leads" the students through the Pillars of Good Character, and finally see your students "Succeed" as individuals in the classroom and your community as they remember and live out Chris' message on a daily basis!"

Andy Fekete, Teacher
Clow Elementary, Naperville, Illinois

"Stone School students, teachers, and staff could not have been more pleased with Chris' Character Counts school assembly performance!  His engaging school assembly maintained the attention of all our students, grades EC-5, through his delightful use of humor using characters students could easily relate to.  More importantly, his message of good character & citizenship was well received by all.  The kids can not stop talking about the Magic Storyteller!"

C. Pfaff, Principal
Stone Elementary School, Addison, Illinois  (Chicago, Illinois Metro Area)

"The students were GLUED TO HIS EVERY WORD of his Character Counts school assembly!  He had excellent control over the audience while teaching them to be in control of themselves.  Entertaining yet the message of good character was taught!"

"It is very difficult to find character counts assemblies that appeal to a wide variety of ages.  The Magic Storyteller was outstanding!  Students from Pre K through 6th grade enjoyed the program.  The program not only entertained the students, but it also provided useful information for them.  Great Job!"

Principal John Stanton, Principal

"Chris McBrien's Character Counts school assembly is GREAT!  His energy and enthusiasm coupled with his magic provide entertainment that keeps the students' attention.  His messages within his show are valuable and represent the themes and philosophies that we preach each day to our students to encourage them to be good citizens!  A GREAT SHOW for kids and adults as well!"

"Our school has seen a rising need to give our students moral training.  The Magic Storyteller and his Character Counts school assembly came to our school and taught our students character development in an entertaining way!  ALL students K-8 were FULLY ENGAGED and left the show UPBEAT and MOTIVATED.  We were amazed how INVOLVED and EXCITED our students were during the show!  It was really great to be able to give our students such a GREAT LEARNING OPPORTUNITY that was also A LOT OF FUN!!!"

Megan Thornton, School Counselor

"I just wanted to let you know how much our students enjoyed your character counts school assembly today.  I have taught in the elementary grades for over twenty years, and this was one of the best character education assemblies we have ever invited to our school.  The presenter was obviously experienced with young children.  He kept them attentive, entertained, and maintained excellent audience control while delivering his character message.  This program was well worth our time!"

Cathy Wittrock, Third Grade Teacher
