Quotes from the session:

“Thank you.  I am leaving with some great ideas.”

“I think the most important thing to remember is there is no “one-size-fits-all”. I’ve tried to find a “best practice” approach to PD and it just doesn’t exist. This is a great presentation, I’m glad I had an opportunity to participate.”

“This was great. I have to share it with the staff and admin at my school.”

“Thank you for the variety of PD formats- I love it when I walk away with new insights.”
