2-Day Institute Testimonials: 

"After two days, I am energized, even after 2 nights of poor sleep. The presenters are personable, beyond passionate. This is checking for understanding, and guided practice and cooperative learning on steroids. Their planning, pacing, and delivery was tight, thoughtful, and smart. I didn’t want them to stop!!"

Darryl Ashdown, 2-day Institute Participant


"I loved the last two days! So much to think about and bring back to my staff! My entire staff will benefit."

2-day Institute Participant


"At first I was thinking, “Hmmm, what would I get out of this, in terms of teaching strategies-- after teaching over 20 years?” Well, I received new ideas that I can easily use TOMORROW! The TPTs presented included strategies that had social-emotional skills embedded. The strategies would be refreshing and engaging for the learner and for me. Simple and easy.


All people involved in schools could benefit, from executive directors and district leaders who provide meaningful PD to administrators that could do the same-- and truly become instructional leaders of their buildings. It would also benefit coaches and other teacher leaders that could provide fresh new techniques."

 Rhoni Davidson, 2-day Institute Participant


"Altogether a delightful, engaging, stimulating two days. Lots to bring back to my teachers. I particularly appreciated the collaborations and collegial environment you created!"

            Brenda, 2-day Institute Participant


"I would recommend this TPT presentation to every teacher I know. I am very excited to share what I’ve learned with my colleagues in Tacoma, WA. I really enjoyed being able to try on many of the techniques spoken about to see and experience their full effects. I had a wonderful time.


The TPT training would benefit any educator, administrator, superintendent, etc. that is interested in finding/utilizing techniques for total classroom, staff room or boardroom participation. Sooooo many ways to leverage collaboration."

Trenton Taylor, 2-day Institute Participant
