"The Design Thinking process has me thinking along many lines--who knows where it will take me as a teacher!"
"I feel that it is a different way to teach and pushing forward with something different rather than the same old ways of teaching/learning. I feel that it is a way to expand learning by being more student directed rather than telling the students the answers."
"I'm so inspired by the teachers I met this week, and by the idea of teachers as designers. As a teacher it's important to me that I have some ability to innovate and to create positive change in the school system beyond my classroom. This institute has made me feel that I can affect change without having to leave the classroom."
