Springboard helped me use different strategies to deal with behavior, day-to-day activities, and so much more! While I am teaching, I am always thinking to myself, "remember your numbered directions" and that has definitely helped out with transitions and expectations in the room. I still refer to my binder!
-Maria Marerro, former participant and current teacher at Pinellas Park Elementary
As an ESE teacher, I took away many practices and resources that apply to my classroom and my population of students. Facilitators were sure to connect all learning practices to how they would apply to ESE students/teachers/classrooms. I truly felt included and supported Springboard has made me a more confident and effective teacher!

Springboard is the best thing to happen in my teaching career. It is full of engaging opportunities and insights on how to be a well-rounded teacher. I thank Springboard for providing constructive feedback that I continue to use in my own classroom daily. Not only does it provide valuable lessons and ideas, but also a sense that you are not in this alone!
