What are participants saying
|“This has definitely been helpful for me in framing some ideas and rethinking some of my reactions to certain students. I hope that it will make a difference and give me some useful tools to be more helpful to some of the students that I struggle with reaching sometimes and with building a more inclusive classroom environment.”
