Oregon EdTech Cadre Affirmations

"Thanks for leading the EdTech Cadre this year. You're doing a great job! It has been the best professional development I've received in 20 years as an educator. My family and I played 'watch' doin' at the table this morning. It was a great way to start the day!" ~Alex Allen, Harrisburg School District

"I didnít get to thank you directly for allowing me to participate in the Cadre meeting last week. As I said to the whole group, it was a wonderful and invigorating experience. You clearly are a master of effective professional development structures and strategies, seeing the focus on NETS was gratifying to my ISTE eyes, and the people youíve assembled are a wonderful group of professionals. I enjoyed participating and seeing some of the talent in Oregon." ~Leslie Conery, ISTE Deputy CEO

"You are doing a great job and I think Oregon is on the right track. We have so many smart and creative people here we need to tap into their knowledge as much as possible." ~Skip Offenhauser, Instructional Technologies Coordinator, Redmond School District
