What our past teacher participants are saying:
  • “Professional development is often times – and for many good reasons – designed to address the needs of new or emerging teachers and may not be content focused. The AP trainings…by Mass Insight are the best of my over twenty-year teaching career. I return from them feeling as if I have just been gifted – with materials and inspiration and power.” – Anne S., Excel High School
  • “Over the past seven years, the professional development and support provided by Mass Insight have been the best in my nineteen-year career as an English teacher.” – Christopher R., Ludlow High School
  • “The professional development offered through Mass Insight has been the best I have ever received, and I have been teaching for over 20 years.” – Charles C., Ludlow High School
  • “As a teacher and a mom, I know without a doubt that I was able to help my students and my own children because of the excellent training Mass Insight provides every year.” – Elisa L., Bay Path Regional Vocational Technical High School
  • “The summer institute was phenomenal. I learned so much and met some really great colleagues who were more than willing to share their expertise.” – Crystal D., Granby Junior Senior High School
  • “In short, I have learned far more about acquiring effective content, curriculum mapping, pedagogy, practical instruction, and assessment than I did in college – including graduate school – or any other type of professional development in my 14 years of teaching.” – Nicholas B., Quaboag Regional Middle High School
  • “Mass Insight has provided some of the best professional development I have experienced in 24 years of teaching. The materials and training I have received have made me a more effective teacher of literature and rhetoric.” – Jennifer B., Granby Junior Senior High School

Your workshops – including the Summer Institute – were definitely the highlight for my teaching and learning experiences in Boston Public Schools.

Mass Insight has been the best professional development that the city offers. The value that they lend to my pedagogy and children's education is imperative.
