What Students Say

“A major reason I’m teaching now is because of the energy, expertise and letters of support from my professors and fellow cohort members. Without them, I’d have been ill equipped, and now I’m back doing what is truly in my nature to do.  

– Dennis Trowbridge, Theatre and Speech Teacher

“I use what I learned in UNC’s TEI program almost every day. The knowledge I gained has given me many tools and ideas to use in my classroom.”

– Jim Kaiser, Theatre Arts Teacher
