  • SEEDS serves as a great foundation in any program. It has a great emphasis on building quality relationships with the children. Teachers are introduced to many useful techniques that they are able to use throughout the day. SEEDS shows everyone how to be change agents and I am thankful to be a part of it.

  • As with all educators, I live for the, “ah-ha moments,” when a little spark of knowledge is suddenly lit up within students. I enjoy the training received in SEEDS because it helps me further develop my skills to provide the “ah-ha moments.” SEEDS is a vital tool for both experienced and new teachers.
