“One of the things (IE’s) Instructional Leadership Institute has provided for us is consistent training districtwide. You need consistency to prevent schools from becoming islands. Pulling in the teacher coaches to go to the Leadership Institute trainings is so helpful because they can then take what they’ve learned back to their individual buildings so there is consistency across the district.” – Sarah Marxhausen, Principal, Princeton (MN) Public Schools
