Reflecting on Embedded Professional Development:
"Just wanted to let you know that you lit the fire under me and I have gone technology crazy in my room (at least for me)." - a participant in embedded professional development
"It was wonderful to have someone join our campus and give us ideas as well as letting us know what was working. It also helped to not leave the campus or worry about getting subs so teachers could get help. This is a wonderful way to teach the teachers and get them excited about implementing technology into their classrooms." - a classroom teacher in embedded professional development
"Gail is an exceptional instructor. She has the drive and confidence to make you want to learn more things and do better. She is always very sure that we can accomplish anything (even if we don't believe it at times)" - classroom teacher participating in embedded professional development
"I found it very helpful. It was great to have someone there just to answer questions and show you new things. It was like having your own personal tutor."
