Participant Comments

  • "My staff have made a concerted effort to implement DI strategies into their lessons. In conversations with them, they were all very appreciative of the ideas and the coaching. I know my intermediate teachers are anxiously awaiting their turn and they look forward to the fall. I thank you both as well for the excellent PD you have consistently provided us over the last 2 years." - Principal, Grenwich-Lenhartsville Elementary School
  • "I continue to be grateful for all of the learning that our teachers are gaining through this program – I see it every day in the classrooms.  It is, by far, one of the best things that WHS has done – and you and your Team are to be thanked for that!" - High School Principal
  • "I’m excited to read the positive reflections from our teachers regarding their learning, their experiences, and the desire to continue to engage in collaborative discussions with the cohort.  The reflection by the participants supports the positive and significant impact this type of professional development with embedded coaching provides to effect change." - Curriculum Director
  • “I feel as though the process of this experience has been essential to my learning and my successes with implementing the DI philosophy and strategies.  I really needed to see the strategies in action, I loved your questioning techniques and how you explain clearly and in detail your expectations.  The coaching opportunities were very useful in helping me to plan activities and brainstorm what strategies would best support my goals.” - High School Teacher  
  • Over the last few weeks I have tried scaffolding and split screen strategies and have had much success!  Additionally, I created two new targeted assessments.  This activity also proved to be very helpful.  I have seen increased engagement of all students and I have data to show which students have learned what specific information.  Overall, these changes have been subtle, small and rather simple, but have had huge results. Thanks! - Language Arts Teacher, Kutztown Area School District
  • "There is nothing better than going to a Professional Development session and being part of it, instead of just being talked to. The way the process was presented allowed us to experience what D.I. is and to see the strategies in action so it was easier to see how to bring them to the classroom." - High School Teacher
  • "I am working my way through the DI course.  I’ve been struggling to manage iReady and DI and so I am playing catch up...I have to say how much I LOVE the course! It’s amazing.  I am completely impressed with the quality of this and feel like I have learned so much just working through it.  You should be so proud of this product.  I have a few more modules to go.  I’m so excited to know our staff members have access to this and to you.  Thanks." - Middle School Principal
  • "I continue to be grateful for all of the learning that our teachers are gaining through this program – I see it every day in the classrooms.  It is, by far, one of the best things that WHS has done – and you and your Team are to be thanked for that!" - High School Principal
  • "THANK YOU! I love being part of this program - it is making me a better teacher, all the time! Key Learning from today: Learned new Think Dots, reviewed Tiered Instruction - and some essentials for incorporating that efficiently!"
  • "The teachers were really amazing in their presentation and understanding of how to integrate technology seamlessly with good instruction.  I reached out to the teachers I saw yesterday with some praise and encouragement.  I’m so pleased with the program and how our teachers have embraced it- and especially with their willingness to share with peers and model how time well spent with planning and preparation makes a tremendous difference for our students.  Thank you to Pete and Beth Ann for facilitating a great day of learning!!" - Curriculum Director, Spring Ford School District
  • “It provides realistic examples, strategies, and feedback to use throughout the school year as well as helps me as a teacher provide a classroom with effective DI.” - Teacher; Induction program
