“I really enjoyed the technical training we received as well as working together with the other teachers in this session. I see the importance of working together and not being afraid to ask someone who is more savvy about certain techniques then I am.”
- Walthall Middle School Teacher, QTL Foundations Participant
“Over the course of this class, I have gotten more of a confidence boost than anything. As a first year teacher, my confidence in myself is low and the relationships I have made in these courses combined with the information that has been presented have made me feel more confident. I feel like a vital part of my school."
- Teacher from Montgomery County, NC, New and Emerging Teacher Institute Participant
“To be honest, I was apprehensive at first - moving from a business and marketing curriculum to a computer hardware and operating systems curriculum appeared to be a daunting task. But ExplorNet made the transition as easy as possible. Having the entire curriculum digitized and placed on the Moodle course website allowed me to hit the ground running. I felt as if 99% of the preparation had been done for me and all I had to do was teach."
- Scott Gupton, Computer Engineering Technology Instructor
