"The information and tools provided in these sessions will help me become a more effective Teacher Support Coach."

"It has me focused in a different direction as far as classroom instruction, creating rigorous assessments and setting goals using student data."

"It will directly affect the way I run my PLC meetings with my different grade levels.  It clarified my definition of rigor and made it easy to translate this information to my PLCs and professional development."

"Funny, engaging, and informative!  I learned so much about my assessments that I use in my classroom!"

"This was great.  It helped me better understand relating to adult learners."

"This will be beneficial to the teachers in our district. We will be able to have a common walkthrough tool that all are familiar with."
