"I just wanted to say how grateful and thankful I am to have had the chance to work on DADEE last term. I either think of it, reference it, laugh about it or apply it, every single day! DADEE has been a major inspiration and provided me with a whole new passion and pursuit of purpose for me to consider both personally and professionally. The DADEE experience has added value to my life beyond what you could know and for that I thank you." Justin Smith, 2016 DADEE Facilitator
“I wanted to extend my sincerest gratitude for allowing me to be involved in the DADEE program for 2017. I have never had a program that has made me so passionate about my career path and I can’t wait to start integrating everything I have learnt throughout the duration of the program with my teaching philosophy.” Jayne Sharkey, DADEE facilitator 2017.
