"This is one of the best profesional development classes I have ever attended. Anytime you can get a wide array of teaching and coaching professionals together to share their experiences and ideas you have a recipe for success."
Terry Anderson, Waubay, SD
"I drove over an hour and a half one way each day to take this class. I can honestly say that it was worth every mile. I was given information and ideas that I will use immediately. I found myself calling assistant coaches and fellow teachers each night telling them about some 'new' idea or thought that I had picked up that day. I am excited to take more classes next summer."
Donnie Sears, Sidney, IA
"An inspiring opportunity to share with fellow educators. I am glad that I took the class and am looking forward to next summer's offerings."
Rachel McCurdy, Sherwood, OH
"The course was fantastic. It gave me strategies I can actually use in my classroom! I now feel I can walk into my classroom the first day of school and begin with team building activities - this is an area I really struggled wtih in the past. I would recommend this class to every educator. It helped to put the goals of being a teacher back into perspective."
Diane Mueller, Moravia, IA
“This is a great course and should be something that is taught in every school or at least every teacher education program. Developing Excellence in Others gets to the core of teaching and coaching and offers practical techniques that can be implemented in the classroom or on the field of play.”
Wade Miller, Fairbary, NE
“This is absolutely the most relevant and worthwhile class I’ve ever taken. The number of things I’ve taken from this class – from the materials/videos, guest speakers & class discussions are invaluable. I would absolutely take another class like this. The course content was incredibly relevant and actually useful! I can’t wait to use these things in my classes, with my students, teaching peers and family. Not only will this make me a better teacher, I truly believe it will make me a better person.”
Linda Rischling, Chadron, NE
“I heard this was an excellent class from other teachers. Wow! This was beyond excellent. I don’t think I’ve ever taken a class with so much student input and so much openness. I also have learned so much that I can actually take these ideas and philosophies back to the classroom. I think we’ve all been empowered as leaders from taking this class!”
