I had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Richey when we booked her outstanding Manners To Go program for our school assembly at Jefferson Elementary in Westfield, NJ. The program was fine tuned to each grade level and the students were engaged and ready to participate. Mrs. Richey was even kind enough to incorporate a working lunch into the already busy day to confer with our teachers on how to put the program into their everyday activities in class. The students learned how to make eye contact, to have a proper handshake, respect for others and even writing a proper thank you note with our older grades. I would highly recommend Mrs. Richey and her Manners To Go program for everyone, adults and children alike. Sarah Sakr

As the After School Programs Director, I am always looking for fun and educational programs to bring into my school for grades K-5th. The manners program that Lisa Richey customized and planned for us worked out well. It covered the basic skills a young person needs to know to be a polite and well-mannered individual. Our program ran for four sessions. I would recommend this program to any school or group. Wendy Walton

I had the privilege of working with Manners To Go this year. From the moment Mrs. Richey walked into my classroom, she had such a positive rapport with the children. Her energy and enthusiasm was infectious with my class of all girls. Mrs. Richey provided a wonderful opportunity for my students to practice what they learned in a real life situation. She taught them how to properly cut their food, eat scones, eat finger sandwiches, drink tea, and use a napkin. My students absolutely loved participating in this tea, and it was an experience they will never forget. Mrs. Richey’s manners lessons were interactive, fun, and extremely beneficial.  I see the girls continuing to use the skills taught by Mrs. Richey in our lunch program, even teaching others! Manners To Go is an amazing learning experience that I highly recommend. You won’t be disappointed by Mrs. Richey’s knowledge and professionalism. I am so glad my class had the opportunity to be a part of this incredible program! I could go on for pages about our wonderful experience. Kristina Kingma
