"Cultivate21 gave our STEM team a vision and clear purpose, which did more to unify our team of teachers than anyone could have imagined. We began the professional development as a group of fragmented teachers trying to incorporate more real-world applications in too many directions, and ended the professional development feeling like a strong STEM program where the students could grow each year."
--Dr. Tammy Gillies, Pike County Schools (GA)
"What was really important to us when we started this partnership with Cultivate21 was that we were developing the capacity of our teachers to be curriculum designers. Cultivate21 developed the capacity for the STEM team to collaborate and become those curriculum designers and have a truly integrated STEM program. We are not an in-name-only program, but we have a true interdisciplinary program where each teacher is a curriculum designer thanks to the time they had to work of Cultivate21."
--Dr. Mike Duncan, Superintendent of Pike County Schools, Zebulon, GA
“This was professional development that actually changed the way I view authentic teaching and learning. The best part was that we had so many meaningful moments while doing our PBL. It really allows you to use your creativity as a teacher to plan fun, engaging, and relevant experiences for your kids. I loved the change in approach to education, and the results made me so proud for my kids! It felt so good to take part in such a memorable and meaningful way of teaching.”
--Ashley Wright, Pike County Schools (GA)
