What teachers say about Joann's workshops

“This was by far one of the most valuable and informative professional development days I have spent in a long time. I cannot wait to incorporate what I have learned today into my curriculum as a computer teacher grades K-5.” - Sandra J. from Lumberton, NJ

“This was the best workshop I have been to thus far. I thought the presenter was very knowledgeable in the field and made the transitions between plugged and unplugged activities seem such a natural occurrence in the classroom. I can't wait to try these out with her assistance from yesterday!” - Lindsay T. from Middletown, NJ

“The workshop made me want to teach code the rest of the year and put all other curriculum aside!” - Lisa M. from Lanoka Harbor, NJ

“Thought provoking and not insulting. Somehow the facilitator managed to reach people of many different levels.” - Barbara M. from Point Pleasant, NJ
