I love how immersive [the institute] was, it was not just a lecture class explaining how to implement the arts into your classroom, it was hands-on and we were put in the student’s position while taking this course. I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I was to try all of these new things in my classroom the week between our second and last classes.
