Experience a True Transformation

"Although somewhat skeptical at the onset, I have to admit that when I saw the word “transformative” used for one of the outcomes of the program it was with some curiosity as to how that was measured or even described by the participants. Yet, person after person was able to share with me how each viewed the transformative process so that when educators went back to their buildings, others did see a change in those who had participated and principals indicated that the changes were felt at the building level itself."
