Take a look at presenter bios from recent Summer Teacher Institutes:
This was fantastic! Thank you for providing this opportunity. It is clear that education is at the forefront of Rock Hall’s mission. You all put on a fantastic conference! I hope to return someday!
With over 30 years of teaching experience, I have attended lots of seminars. Some excellent, some mediocre. This one was excellent. I enrolled last minute and was not the gung-ho youthful teacher aching for more professional development. Instead, I arrived the somewhat jaded veteran in need of credits. I left feeling like that young, energetic, eager-to-learn teacher all over again. Thanks for a wonderful week.
Wonderful to be surrounded by professionals who have made their careers out of what they truly love; it’s infectious! I appreciate the impeccable attention to detail paid by all the staff. All personalities worked well together. You all are a wealth of succulent knowledge and left me hungry for more each day.
I was very impressed by the staff of the entire Museum (caterers, sales clerks, docents, everyone) in their professionalism, knowledge, organizational skills, tact, politeness, and humor throughout the week. I attend a lot of teacher programs (NCSS, NEH, etc.) and the Rock 101 institute can "hang" with any of them. You folks have a lot to be proud of and I will certainly spread the good word about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. My only regret is that I did not attend sooner. Thanks for a great week of information and classroom motivation!
