Feedback from past participants: What did you find most valuable about this Institute?
"Having the opportunity to learn from each other as new teachers."
"Having the time to ask other teachers about how they run their classrooms, how they plan their lessons, how they differentiate, and accomplish their tasks really well was my favorite part of the institute. Getting ideas, and having a chance to create a plan on how you will implement these ideas in your classroom is extremely helpful."
"Learning different techniques for classroom management and activities that help include all types of learners"
"Getting tips from seasoned veterans, and sharing stories and ideas with other new teachers"
"The ability to collaborate with other teachers in similar fields. All too often, the conferences are geared towards disciplines that are not mine and no one understands the struggles I have. Here, I felt more connected. "
"Absolutely everything about this workshop was helpful!"
