“I so appreciate your response to my question and am most impressed with the rapid response your organization provided. Good customer service is a rare thing these days, so I applaud you and your team for doing what you promise and doing it so pleasantly!”


“I want to thank PENC for your support and for helping me feel that everything will work out. Your calm advice and reassurance helped me to weather my storm. In my humble opinion, as my students would say, you ROCK! Thank you more than I can express with my rather advanced vocabulary.”


“You were very instrumental in the outcome of my issue at school. I followed all of your advice. My principal sent a letter to the parent who threatened me and since then I have received a call from the mother with an apology. The dues I pay PENC are worth every penny knowing I have some support.”
