Do your students have the tools to collaboratively solve problems?
The teachers were inspired and ready to begin the year with one PBL unit in place. They thanked me for a workshop with meaning, structure, and support for innovative teaching that was useful for them in the classroom. We all absolutely loved Kris!!! I can't thank you all enough for providing such an amazing presenter! I can't wait to see all this hard work from our teachers translate into the classroom experience. Again, a big shout out for Kris and the TeachThought team. You definitely helped our teachers grow!!!

I found this to be more informative and useful than any other PD I've participated in.
-Deborah Shirley, Elementary Teacher
All feedback from my teacher was positive. She reported that the articles John sent were informative, the conversation was both clarifying and insightful, and the strategies were immediately useful. This is all great news! I have reported back to my administrative team and recommended that we keep Virtual Coaching in mind as we finish up our end of year evaluation conversations.
