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)!

Intermediate (3-5)  
This was on the best PLEs I have participated in within the last 20 years. Every time we met I gained valuable information to help my students in learning math and with me teaching math. I feel I have a much better understanding of math and how best to teach kids. I look forward to sharing all the information and practices I have learned to anyone who will listen.

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.
