The time I have invested in the two courses was so valuable and applicable to my math instruction and overall teaching strategies. More importantly, the help and guidance that you have provided has been outstanding! Their flexibility and support within such an organized professional development opportunity is more than a person could ask for.

Jim Unruh, TeacherRidgway School District R-2

This course was very informative. Our facilitator gave very insightful feedback and was very encouraging, and the assessments (i.e Lesson Plan) were hands-on, attainable, and something that I implemented in my classroom afterwards.

Dana Kalipolites, TeacherCañon City School District R-1

I learned so much about blended learning and look forward to implementing it in my classroom. The resources were very relevant and extremely helpful, and my facilitator always provided constructive feedback which proved helpful throughout the course.

Marcy Epperson, TeacherCañon City School District R-1

Teachers appreciated the self-paced courses and both the support and flexibility received from their instructors, to meet the needs of each teacher participant. They learned how to continue on with best instructional practices whether remote or in a hybrid setting, and were able to engage students using the strategies and tools presented in their courses.

Marcia Hester, Director of InstructionWeld County SD Re-8

The team is responsive to current needs and is able to anticipate future needs; they are communicative; they are knowledgeable; and they have helped fill the gaps that we have had, particularly as we learned how to transition to remote learning.
