What our past teacher participants are saying.

“Professional development is often times – and for many good reasons – designed to address the needs of new or emerging teachers and may not be content focused. The AP trainings…by Mass Insight are the best of my over twenty-year teaching career. I return from them feeling as if I have just been gifted – with materials and inspiration and power.” – Anne S., Excel High School

“Over the past seven years, the professional development and support provided by Mass Insight have been the best in my nineteen-year career as an English teacher.” – Christopher R., Ludlow High School

“The professional development offered through Mass Insight has been the best I have ever received, and I have been teaching for over 20 years.” – Charles C., Ludlow High School

“As a teacher and a mom, I know without a doubt that I was able to help my students and my own children because of the excellent training Mass Insight provides every year.” – Elisa L., Bay Path Regional Vocational Technical High School

“The summer institute was phenomenal. I learned so much and met some really great colleagues who were more than willing to share their expertise.” – Crystal D., Granby Junior Senior High School

“In short, I have learned far more about acquiring effective content, curriculum mapping, pedagogy, practical instruction, and assessment than I did in college – including graduate school – or any other type of professional development in my 14 years of teaching.” – Nicholas B., Quaboag Regional Middle High School

“Mass Insight has provided some of the best professional development I have experienced in 24 years of teaching. The materials and training I have received have made me a more effective teacher of literature and rhetoric.” – Jennifer B., Granby Junior Senior High School
