"I have seen the powerful impact of Mary Hall's high-quality professional development workshops at Harvard's Project Zero Classroom and WISSIT, summer institutes for educators, as well as at the National Gallery of Art. She is a consummate professional, a dynamic presenter, and a passionate artist." 

Jim Reese

Director of the Professional Development Collaborative at Washington International School

"I would listen to Mary Hall read the phone book because in her hands I would learn, reflect and grow as a writer and as a thinker.  She is brilliant and this workshop was fascinating."
