"We had done such a lot of work to encourage the effective use of technology and research-based teaching as well as collaboration among the teachers. This just helped it all come together and helped the teachers see how it's all connected."
H.W. Scott, supervisor of technology
Botetourt County Schools

"It's been one of the most beneficial programs we've ever implemented in terms of staff development for teachers. The absolute hands-on experience and types of knowledge that they get out of that experience is unsurpassed."
Ken Wells, superintendent
Perquimans County, NC

"When the kids are having fun and learning, it is not tedious for them. If they're excited, they're going to learn more and reflect on it more. And when teachers are excited, that enthusiasm is contagious."
Dr. Juanita Clark, principal
West Lumberton Elementary
Robeson County, NC

"(QTL™) was the best jump start, the best thing we did, no doubt about it. (Teachers) were so pumped up after they finished their cycles, they couldn't wait to get back to school. Everybody feels really good about it."
Theresa Bell, technology integration specialist
Martin County, NC

"(QTL™) focused on curriculum. It provided classroom strategies for the teachers. It incorporated new designs for learning and it incorporated a lot of components of No Child Left Behind legislation. I really wanted to have this for our teachers to learn here in Guilford County, and it's been a great program for them. It's working really, really well... every school that we train, when we train one teacher we're finding they wanta to send a second and third and fourth team."
Zelia Frick, instructional technology supervisor
Guilford County, NC

"One of the biggest problems with workshops is we are back into the classroom and have no time to implement. With (QTL™), we've had time. This is one of the best things that have happened to our school."
Linda Lloyd, elementary teacher
Orange County, NC

"This training component is worth underscoring. We can't just be bringing in fancy equipment and imagine that it's just a matter of equipping a school. We need to increases the confidence level of our teaching force. It's a matter of teachers having the initiative and the get up and go to get training. And that's what has happened here."
Rep. David Price, D-NC
