Middle School (6-8)  
This was the best PD I have attended in 21 years. I had several 'A-ha' moments in understanding the standards for mathematical practice.... This was invaluable...
This PLE has helped to transform my philosophy of teaching and will definitely affect my pedagogical practice.
This experience has transformed my teaching (and I've been teaching a LONG time)!

    Preschool  
    This program was excellent! I have been able to return to my classroom and implement all of the lessons immediately. This is by far the best professional development I have ever participated in for teacher learning/understanding and implementation within the classroom.
    This was by far the best training I have attended in all my 25 years teaching experience. I absolutely love teaching math and I have expanded with what I have learned in so many ways.
