Testimonials 
Thank you for creating the perfect outline of topics for 'Rosie the  Lawyer' program this week. You truly hit the major points for these young ladies. They are the future, and the tools you gave them today will empower them to be set apart from their peers.  I loved how you kept bringing the message back to etiquette builds positive relationships.  I simply could not have chosen a stronger trainer than you!"  Wendy Geist - Wright, Constable & Skeen, LLP   

Thank you for being such a great teacher!  When I first started, I thought I would not have fun, but then I did.  My favorite part was the cell phone manners. -  Bernadette

Thank you so much for teaching us!  I learned a lot and had a ton of fun.  Your passion for your field and your students is infectious.  You are very encouraging and empowering.  Thanks again! - Abigail

Mrs. Minor and the Etiquette School of Maryland have left an indelible mark on my daughter.  In one week of instructions, I saw a significant improvement in my child's table manners.  In fact, she started lecturing my husband and me on our manners!  I am so happy she was able to take part in Mrs. Minor's class at her Montessori school.  If her manners slip, all I have to do is say, "What would Mrs. Minor say?" and she changes her behavior.  Thanks so much! - Dayna

Thank you so much for being such a wonderful etiquette trainer.  I learned so much of value in your class.  I will do my best to remember your excellent lessons and apply them in my life.  - Noah B.

Thank you for all of your efforts to help teach Caitlin proper etiquette.  She truly enjoyed your class.  She had much to say last night at the dinner table about what she had learned.  Your investment will last a lifetime, and for that I am grateful.  May you continue to use your gift to encourage and empower others. - Tricia R.

You are an amazing teacher!  Thank you so much. - Caitlin

I've really learned a lot from you, especially the principles of etiquette.  I've learned lessons for life! - Meghan

You've taught me how to be more confident and polite through etiquette.  Thank you. - Sarah

Thank you so much for teaching our girls etiquette skills that will serve them the rest of their lives.  Your cheerful and fun disposition made the class enjoyable for them.  It has been a pleasure for the moms to have met your as well. - Pam R.

I would like you to know that you do an excellent job educating the children as to what etiquette is and what it means. This custom is being lost and forgotten by many people.  My grandson, Patrick, enjoyed your course very much.  He came home full of good manners, knowledge, and was able to make sense of all the rules we have been teaching him since he was a baby.  He is now very helpful around the table during mealtime.  I am looking forward to upcoming classes.  It was and excellent experience! - Mrs. Cynthia G.
