Here is what a few educators are saying:

Jason’s presentation captivated the attention of our students. Their knowledge and love for their pets was overwhelming. They spoke to our students at their level, and in a very respectful manner. I was very impressed with this presentation, and would highly recommend that any classroom teacher that is facilitating learning in this area, contact Jason and book an appointment with him.

I run a boys and girls club in High River and when I told the kids that we were going to have a reptile party they were thrilled...especially the boys. They couldn't wait for Jason to come. Jason did not disappoint. He brought out a variety of his reptiles varying from snakes to scorpions to lizards. The kids were amazed as he presented each animal. The girls were even fascinated! Jason held the attention of the kids as well as had the wisdom in how to allow the kids to handle the safer reptiles. Jason was very knowledgeable about each reptile and his main message was not lost on the children - research your pet before you dive in! I would recommend Jason for any group. His presentation is fascinating and educational...and only a little bit creepy!!!

If you want to bring in real life experiences to your class and don’t know how....this is an excellent, engaging resource to use. Jason customized the presentation in accordance to what we were learning about (which happened to be the Rainforest). He brought in a variety of Rainforest amphibians and reptiles for the children to see. They were able to touch the baby Tortoise, the baby Turtle, the Iguana, and the large Boa Constrictor. Jason gave background information on each and allowed time for questions at the end of each reptile/amphibian. He was very knowledgeable and prepared for our presentation and was able to present it at a Grade One level. I would highly recommend this resource to any teacher in the CBE.

A highlight for the Open Minds students was Jason Clevett’s Reptile presentation. Students were able to observe and touch a variety of reptiles and learn about their habitats and how they evolved over the years. Finnegan the Iguana was fascinating as he would interact with the students by nodding his head. A student teacher who was initially mortified of snakes (even pictures) was eventually able to touch a snake at the end of the presentation. She was so proud of herself.

The children and I really enjoyed your presentation. I am sure there will be lots to talk about tomorrow at school. I like the selection of animals you brought, the facts you shared and the vocabulary you chose to use with this age group. Your manner with this age group was very patient and very appropriate. Not everyone is able to be successful with this age group. Thanks again I hope you enjoyed coming to our class.
- Carolyn, Calgary Preschool Teacher

This has been the second presentation and our experience was wonderful. He was very informative about each of the reptiles and my students learned a lot about each reptile. They were even eager to write about their favourite reptile when we returned to class and retained the information that was taught. Jason was friendly and professional in our school environment and we look forward to having him return in the near future. If you are looking for a well knowledgeable reptile expert, Jason is your guy.
