    In Algebra 1, I had students do a silent appointment with some vocabulary definitions. Then we did snowballs and I had students read the responses and write agreed upon definitions on the board. It went so much better. I am so happy. ☺ D. G from San Ramon"

    I took some feedback from your presentation yesterday. I wanted to let you know that it was very positive! One teacher said, “ this is the best PD I have ever had” and every one said I would absolutely use what he said.
    Thank you for being an agent of change!"
