Participant Comments

  • "Thanks for all the great work with our staff.  I am really seeing the benefits with our daily instruction.  Rather than covering content I am actually observing instructional strategies that increase student’s learning through “maximized engagement, through differentiation, using technology when appropriate.  Amazing work!  Very appreciated and valued." - Secondary Principal
  • 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
  • "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
  • "I just got my evaluations sent to me in the mail from Arcadia for the fall semester math ed course I teach there. I focus a lot of time and attention on FA and DI, based on everything I learned from Pete and have since built upon in practice in my own classroom. Anyway, I got the best compliment I've ever received from a student, and I owe it all to Pete. One of the students wrote, "Learning about teaching math from Michelle is like learning baseball from an MLB player." Well, of course, instant sobbing. My dog's looking at me like I'm freakin nuts, haha. But seriously, I would never be where I am today, as a high school math teacher or as a college math ed instructor, without Pete. He is an amazing person, someone who I greatly admire and respect, and the one who inspired me to want to teach other math teachers about improving their craft. I hope to pass by the two of you in that conference room again very soon so that I can thank him in person." High School Math Teacher, Plymouth-Whitemarsh High School
  • "Today, I finished meeting with teachers for their end-of-year evaluations. Many teachers referenced DI in our conference and cited the workshops, conversations, and lessons that were a part of their DI training this year. Our KES teachers can be fairly outspoken. The fact that they made mention of their experiences in your workshops and the impact it had on instruction is a testament to the value of their time with you. I am sure tomorrow will be a productive day and I look forward to your work with our intermediate teachers next year." - Principal, Kutztown Elementary School  
  • "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 just want to say thank you for this opportunity!  I learned quite a bit about what I already do and what I could do to become a better teacher.  It has actually made me more motivated to try new strategies to increase student engagement. Thank you!!!!!" - Middle School English-Language Arts Teacher

  • "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
  • “The structure of the workshop served to teach and model the concepts and strategies. Key concepts and vocabulary were regularly reinforced, and there were frequent checks for understanding and application.” - Administrator; DI program
