In all the ways I have helped CTL, I have been blown away by the impact thier programs are having on teachers and children. I have witnessed example after example of students achieving great things from the poorest communities in Mississippi, to the wealthiest ares of Los Angeles and every where inbetween. They are making a real difference in so many ways. Fantastic people!

I would find a way to help them increase their funding in order to give them every opportunity to do more fantastic work!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the people.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

so very committed and driven to help others.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Change the face of education in our country!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Funding and spreading the word in a very "noisy" space.

One thing I'd also say is that...

These people are the best of the best!

In 2008 I participated in Content Literacy training through CTL. This was a wonderful experience for a college professor. As a professor, you focus so strongly on your discipline area that actually learning to teach is sometimes pushed aside. This training gave me the materials and skills to try out new active learning techniques in my classroom. The follow-up sessions and opportunities to work with other faculty across disciplines was particularly helpful in learning to apply the ideas to my classes. This training basically helped me learn some new techniques and ideas for reaching my students. Even though I may not use the exact techniques, the concept of active learning and the types of activities I learned helped me to become a stronger college teacher.
