What past participants have said about TTOL:
“I loved the discussions. I felt like I was able to take the content of the course and share what I had learned and how I would adapt it. I felt it was a safe environment and encouraged growth. I got to know colleagues form Pierce that I might not have otherwise met, and they supported me in ways I didn’t expect.” Spring 2014 participant
“I enjoyed networking with the other instructors. I also liked how quickly Renee responded to our concerns or issues. It taught me a lot about the importance of being responsive to my students. I’ve always believed teachers should also be students, and taking this course has given me an opportunity to sit on the other side of the ‘desk.’ ” Spring 2014 participant
