Feedback from last year's participants: What did you find most helpful about this Institute?

"Having the opportunity to learn from each other as new teachers."
"Making connections with other professionals who can help me become better."
"The most useful teacher training that I’ve ever attended. So many things that I will take back to my classroom and know why they are important."
"All of it was fantastic--wonderfully planned and suited for the intended audience of new teachers or teachers new to private schools. The presenters were all well-prepared and knowledgeable, thorough but not overwhelmingly so. Awesome energy and great balance of information."
