Thank you – to coin a phrase – This old dog learned some new 'tricks!'
Middle School Teacher
Deb [the presenter] was so interesting, inspiring and encouraging – helped me feel as though I could truly do this in my classroom. My students will really benefit from this approach to learning.
I was extremely pleased with the workshop content and the delivery method used.
I enjoyed the workshop and facilitator. This [workshop] has given me a boost of energy to begin the new school year. I can't wait to start. Thank you so much!

Hands down the most informative, practical and simply fun professional development session I have attended these past five years!
From Atlanta Public Schools
"I have to admit that this workshop was PHENOMENAL... I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to attend this workshop with my fellow Atlanta Public Schools colleagues. Not only was it insightful and informative, but the presentation of the material covered was creatively done. She [the instructor] allowed us to make many of the activities she discussed. It seems as if both facilitators believe in the educational proverb: 'Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I understand.'"

"In a career of more than 20 years in education and going to professional development meetings, there have only been one or two experiences that have changed the way I approach teaching. The Exemplars workshop has been one of them."
From Alaska On Exemplars Summer Institutes
Using the information Deb [the presenter] taught us and the rubric, we set about scoring problems. The more we did, the more we wanted to do! Who would have thought that sitting for two days in a windowless room could be so wonderful. The time flew!
