Since starting Portrait, I have noticed students compliment each other about how they demonstrate the competencies. Students tell me the lessons are fun and give them the chance to learn how to take care of themselves while building confidence.

Portrait of an Eagle has given me the ability to dive deeper into the content of my courses. We focus on the how and the why instead of just the what and the when. It's helped my students to grow.
