"As a result of this program, I have worked to address mental health in our school's youth through social emotional learning activities, building a classroom culture through the arts, and implementing restorative teaching practices that build confidence. I choose to prioritize these issues because I believe that as teachers we need to make sure that the child's mental well being is addressed first before we can teach a successful lessons."

"This program has helped me in many ways and I think it is well worth it. It's great for educators who want to shift the narrative, explore other aspects of education, get experience with leadership opportunities, meet other educators from around the country, and have opportunities to be mentored/coached by some of the top leaders in education."

"I think the relationships and conversations with my pilotED Coach and the other teachers in the program have been the most meaningful. To get to know the things that are going on in other schools across the country and compare those situations to my own situation has been ideal. To bounce ideas off of each other and get their feedback has been helpful. Also, using the provided curriculum to start something that will be beneficial to all of the students in my school has been amazing."
