I work at South Miami K-8 Center. Dream in Green was great! They gave us lots of resources to help encourage our school to go green. They made sure that we understood how to plan and follow through on our going green timeline. They had a beginning of the year training and I enjoyed it very much -- it was so informative.

The personnel who work for Dream in Green have always acted sincere and professional. Any time I needed help, they were there for me.

I hope to work with them every school year.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The resources have helped the school raise awareness to environmental problems.
