Participant Comments

  • "It really was the best PD that I’ve gone through to date!  Going through your program really changed how I think about differentiating and I know that it has improved my teaching.  Before, I felt as though DI was a bit “unreachable” – difficult to plan for and to implement.  I realized that I had already been doing some of it, but you helped me to put all the pieces together.  Now, I really feel as though it’s a part of my every day in the classroom." - High School Math, Wissahickon School District
  • "Thanks for sharing this feedback.  Reading it makes me really grateful for this opportunity for our teachers because the reflections really show a true commitment and genuine learning.  I am excited to see this learning put into practice and naturally “spread” as these cohort members (and future members) share their knowledge and become leaders in the building." - High School Principal
  • "Your sessions have greatly increased my "toolbox" with differentiating strategies for our classroom lessons. I now feel more comfortable including DI in my classroom. DI is a must have for a majority of my lessons. I hope future cohorts embrace this great resource." - High School Teacher
  • “I have definitely considered the 4 Pillars and assessment when planning my lessons.  I am constantly thinking of ways to effectively assess my students to ensure that I am meeting the correct level of engagement.  I have learned that assessment is not something that just follows lessons, but it also drives instruction." - High School Teacher
  • “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  
  • "I just wanted to send you a quick email to say THANK YOU for taking me under your wing and helping me to be the teacher I am today.  Working so closely with you has been by far the most challenging yet rewarding experience in my professional career.  Not only do I benefit from what you taught me on a daily basis, but my students do and so does the staff I work with. You truly are an amazing educator, and I thank you for sharing your expertise and passion with me." -4th Grade Math Teacher, Erdenheim Elementary School

  • "First off, thank you all very much for opening my eyes to the world of Differentiated Instruction. I learned many new techniques that I am slowly integrating into my classroom.  The students love the activities and I have found that more students are not only more engaged, but seem to be retaining more information.  As the World Language department chair, I have also shared some of the new DI techniques with other Spanish teachers and plan to make DI part of our departmental goals for next year." - High School Teacher & Department Chair
  • "I really enjoy this program and all the opportunities and learning I have had. This has been the most beneficial professional development." - High School Math Teacher
  • "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
  • "Thanks so much for the feedback.  I watch and admire your approach to guiding teachers.  You have a firm but positive approach supporting teachers.   I want to do the best I can and always try to set high standards for what I do and how I support others.  Your coaching us has been such an amazing experience."   - Instructional Coach, grades 7-12, Spring-Ford Area School District
