Here's what people are saying about the professional learning services provided by PIMSER.
"PIMSER is my educational leadership 'Think Tank.' It is the place where I can go to see and experience the current research put into practice. The research-based initiatives shared by experienced, well qualified staff at the institute are phenomenal!"
--Tim Schneider, retired Secondary Teaching and Learning Lead Teacher, Campbell County Schools
“Through their outreach programs and offerings for teachers who take these experiences back to enhance their student learning experiences, PIMSER has undoubtedly positively impacted thousands of young Kentuckians’ learning and understanding of mathematics and science and engineering concepts."
--Sara M. Poeppelman, chair of the Lewis County High School Science Department
"Keeping up with the fast pace of ever‐changing standards and research‐based practices can be very difficult for classroom teachers and school administrators. PIMSER has supported an instructional vision committed to the use formative instruction, the development of a growth mindset, and the rigorous and accurate implementation of standards. Because of the opportunity for me to learn through various programs, I am better prepared to coach teachers and building leaders. I know essential elements to incorporate into learning walks and I can better focus on the content needed in our district’s professional learning programs."
-- Cherry Boyles, Instructional Supervisor for Washington County Schools
Ratios is definitely the part of my content that makes me a little nervous, so I have really appreciated the support you have given to the participants in this area. I have pushed myself and my students to dig deeper into the content through my involvement in the TMI project. Without the meetings we've had in this project and the coaching sessions I've had with Jamie-Marie Miller (RTP), there is no way that my students would have learned as much as they have this year regarding ratios.
-- Erin Brummett, math teacher at Lincoln County Schools
