"This was the most useful PD I've been to, possibly ever. I really appreciate the mix of ideas and tools: now we have many activities we can do with our students, and the rationale behind them."

"You guys had a GREAT blend of fun activities, rationale, time to digest information, opportunities to collaborate, ideas for putting what we learned into practice, the list goes on!"
