"Emma Doyle’s casts a shadow and leaves an imprint on many children that she deals with every single day. You always remain in the moment, never distracted from what else is happening in your life, you are the eternal optimist in so many ways, yet you find the way to continue to challenge, and provoke a curiosity for learning in others. What is most important is that you have helped kids like, like my son Connor, grow not just as a player but also as a person. You can only do this from a position of care. Thank you for working with my son."
