What others have said about the seminars...

The activities really helped me think of ways I can improve my instruction.

The breakout sessions grouped by secondary and elementary levels were very helpful.

I learned the importance of emphasizing student voice in the classroom.

The hands-on practice was very effective, it’s good to walk through strategies as it personalizes them.

I learned to individualize instruction for each student.
