    Here’s what educators are saying about PTI.

    “An amazing two-year journey. I am a better teacher and person because of your guidance, expertise, encouragement, infinite patience and boundless wisdom. The Head of School commented that I must be feeling very accomplished now that I have completed my practicum. To be honest, I feel more informed than accomplished, along with a little bit sad. You have made an immeasurable impact on my teaching and I will be forever grateful.”

    — Elementary Teacher, Belmont Day School

    “I can’t speak highly enough about Shadi, our V&V instructor. She was amazingly enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the content. She presented the material with confidence stemming from her many years of experience. I loved the way she ran the class, allowing plenty of time for practice, questions, examples, videos, sharing with other participants, etc. It was one of the best PDs I’ve been to in quite some time. Thank you.”
