We thought your workshop was great! The case study element was a great idea. The teaching artists probably haven't ever done an activity like that. I talked to our Director afterward about how you did a great job modeling that it is possible to build relationships in a short amount of time.  Relationship building is a significant part of that, and you modeled that! Thank you!

Craig's passion for culturally and linguistically responsive teaching and SEL is contagious. His guidance has helped me transform my approaches to teaching the curriculum, modifying grade levels for our special education students, and making it more relevant and engaging for students from all backgrounds, which has had a profound impact on their learning experience and the practice of my teachers.
