Thank you again for giving us useful information that will help us with our jobs. Miscommunication, or lack of communication, seems to be a problem in many areas... I see it all the time in my organization as well as in the schools, so I certainly appreciate learning these skills to help do my part :-) Thank you for your time, energy, and effort to guide us through this year! YOU are appreciated.
I wanted to say thank you for the last two days. Today was especially transformative because it allowed me to reflect on how I communicate with those around me. I will take what you taught us and use it to forge new relationships with my teachers through active listening and using the talking models you gave us. I always know PDs will be informative, but today really allowed me to reflect on the practice of coaching and the way I communicate with those around me.
