Comments from Participants

"After 30 years of conferences, conventions, workshops and post-graduate studies, I finally found a 3-day that met my need, kept me focused and wanting to attend again."

"Highly trained, motivated, impassioned keynote speakers/educators that "shepherd" others through the ongoing growth process of becoming exceptional educators with each child's success in mind."

"Where else could we be treated so well but at Roanoke?!"

"I had a wonderful time meeting and interacting with teachers from all over the state. It gave me the opportunity to network and share joys/concerns with my fellow teachers."

"It's a wonderful professional development opportunity that provides restoration, revitalization and renewal. Thank you!"

"Loved it! I reconnected with people I'd met in other places and I made new friends."

"I really appreciate the space the keynote speakers created in my thinking about teaching and learning. I have been frustrated of late with students and their interest in learning - and now I have a new approach (well, several, actually!). The Institute is invaluable."

"Providing teachers with opportunities to feel important and encourage each other and giving time to relax and enjoy...."

"Teachers are valued. Fellowship of other teachers was nice because we generally don't have time to spend with each other due to work environment."

"Wiggins has me rethinking my goals and priorities and how I can look at my curriculum. I used to think that way and then I "fell" into the march to death of SOLs. I needed the wake-up call!"

"Wow! Awesome! Thanks!"
