This workshop was SPECTACULARLY worth my time, and I had the choice of whether or not to be here…so THANK YOU!!! I’m going to incorporate more student ownership in assessment by having them design at least one of the rubrics this year, and more surfacing of the “how to level up” conversation.


“I love the data and information you shared and how you presented it. The crowd was hanging onto every word and your lovely style just engenders trust and hope.”
