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!"

"This Institute celebrates teachers. The attitude is very positive, It is evident the teachers at this Institute want to be lifelong learners!"

"Roanoke College is a hidden gem that needs to capitalize on its position as a leader in education and in teaching/learning."

"The way I am "honored" makes me remember that I am a professional; I am valued."
