Marcus A. Campbell, Ed.D., Assistant Superintendent & Principal, Evanston Township H.S, Illinois –one of our nation’s top public schools

“What did you say to my faculty!? They have talked about how ‘life changing’ their five days with you were. THANK YOU! What you have done is truly amazing and I am appreciative of your willingness to invest in us. Your work has added a much-needed wind in our sails at ETHS. I am extremely grateful for our partnership. This is powerful culturally responsive teaching!”

Ted Howard II, Principal Garfield HS, Seattle, WA

“Sending a team of teachers to this training created an energy around valuing student voice in a democratic classroom. This energy has inspired other teachers to implement similar systems in their classrooms, with the overall benefits being better classroom cultures and students feeling a greater sense of belonging.”


“I expected that I would leave this workshop with the tools to empower my students to have agency in their own classroom experience. What I didn’t anticipate was the amazing cohort of educators whom I know will both provide and accept support as we dive into this work.”

“Incredibly eye-opening experience! Well researched, planned, and executed. I am walking away networked within a community of educator leaders and a plethora of real-life strategies and tools in order to support my work with student leaders.”

“I think that if I can  implement one or two principles of a democratic classroom in my own classroom from the rest day of school, the domino effect will be transformative; I will feel better about my teaching and I will have a room full of student-leaders instead of a room full of students I need to manage.”
