Workshop was the best that some teachers had ever attended

“Workshop evaluations indicated that Brian was very much appreciated as a presenter and that the workshop was the best that some teachers had ever attended. Some stated that they could not wait for school to begin this year. One stated that she was sorry that it was summer vacation.

Two attending administrators plan to use observations of DI in the teacher evaluations this year along with including DI as a part of the District Improvement Plan.

Brian modeled all activities presented and made sure that the level of presentation was appropriate for the audience. Brian is an excellent resource for staff development. He is coming back to our area again this fall for 2 more workshops to expand on the dynamics of DI.”
