A More Effective Teacher
"I got really individualized support and took my learning to that next level. The program exposed us to so many different tools -- we couldn’t master them all but we were each able to get out of our comfort zone and learn how to use the tools at whatever level we were at. This is a great place to network and I have a group to bounce ideas back and forth with. The Krause Center has helped me in multiple areas to become a more effective teacher. "

Filled Me With Hope
"The world of education is always changing and I came to KCI learn how to be a better teacher for learners of the future. I’m a Spanish teacher but I wanted to learn many new skills, not just teaching Spanish but other skills like coding. In fact, there was an explosion in my brain with all the many new things I can do with my students. The program filled me with hope."

My Students Are More Engaged
"This program transformed my teaching practice and changed my mind set about how learning happens. The program showed what new tools are out there, and taught me how to implement them. It taught me in an innovative manner and now I can teach that way, too. My students are more engaged, they have more of a voice, and overall it’s better experience for them and me."
