I was so interested in this topic and excited about the training. I feel that I grew so much as a teacher today. I can understand my students' struggles now and how I can help them. My heart was touched today.

Today's session was so eye-opening for me! It made me think of my students and in those exact struggles and how they may feel. the struggle, the frustration, the desire to do better, but unable to at the "speed" we would like. I would love for teachers to be trained or experience this workshop to help get just a glimpse of what our dyslexic babies are learning to navigate through. Thank you for this session!

-Evelyn, 4th grade bilingual Teacher

 

Going through this simulation as a teacher I was able to take a peek into some student perspective. It was a wonderful experience. Helped me rethink some of my teacher sayings and how I watch and expect.

-Inez, Teacher

Eye-opening of understanding why our students may act out or how they feel when struggling. Great PD!

-Sandra, Teacher

My eyes were opened to so many of the struggles that I see in my students and why they may be happening. Their frustration is so real and can't be helped unless we step in and be their support and grace.

The students cheered when I said they could pick which activity to complete. Students were fully engaged and we could have spent multiple days completing the activity. There is such a great variety of activity that all students were able to find a creative outlet that they enjoyed. This could easily be done with most subjects.
