"I learned more in the first 5 minutes of the workshop than I did in the entire day in the last PD I was in. (Our instructor) is a former classroom teacher so she got right to the point of the lesson. She knew where kids make common mistakes and could talk about when she was in the classroom."— Crystal White, Secondary Math Teacher
and Math Department Chair
Robbinsville High School (North Carolina)
"I felt empowered to go and use new ideas in my classroom. Excellent PD session." — Melissa Jackson, Mathematics Department Chair
