Here's what past ATC scholars have said:

  • "I enjoyed becoming more comfortable with the technology."
  • "The institutes were content-rich."
  • "Absolutely excellent."
  • "The BEST professional development available to high school (mathematics) teachers. The BEST model with follow-up."
  • "[Now]...I help my students to be critical thinkers by asking questions that are of high cognitive demand.  I also engage my students in team work and collaborative activities to help them develop their communicating skills.  In addition, I incorporate technology in my teaching so students can have multiple representations of ...concepts."
