“I was totally bowled over. I was also, admittedly, overwhelmed a little by the challenges ahead–but only in a way that inspired me to want to meet those challenges. I really can’t say enough good things about this training and program.”

“I still have to pinch myself when I think of how I fell into this program. This is the most engaging educational program in the country. What else gives students a chance to research, collaborate, problem solve, create, write, speak, all for an authentic audience of the highest caliber?”

“So much of what is accomplished in my classroom is thanks to the lessons you and SRL have taught me.”
