KSI fundamentally changed the way I perceived the classroom. In an environment where the lead teachers modeled their carefully developed curriculum, I gained an understanding of the intentionality with which teachers can approach every dimension of their work. Those two weeks in New Jersey stand as the most influential professional development opportunity I have experienced yet. And it was free!

I didn't think I could be so deeply impacted by a two-week experience at that point in my career but the Klingenstein Summer Institute proved to be a pivotal point in my work. The insight and experience I gained left me feeling like a different person. I returned to my school with renewed humility, confidence and excitement, ready to create change.

The Institute challenged and nurtured me both as a human being and as an educator by delving into the various aspects of sustaining an innovative and inclusive educational institution. I gained a new perspective on teaching from master teachers and a whole community of early career teachers who valued reflection, collaboration and creativity... Every early career teacher should have this experience.
