Sheldon is a seasoned performer and would be an excellent speaker, role model and entertainer for all levels in the school system. Bev Facey, Community High School
We were all so engrossed in all he did to provide a motivating and clever performance. Sheldon not only shared his magic, but inspired and empowered all who were there with the message, you can be anything you want to be with practice, motivation, and heart! He also left us all with the motivation and some magic secrets, to try a few magic tricks ourselves! Uncas School
