I just want to thank you again for sharing your time, knowledge, and expertise with our Ashland-Greenwood team earlier this week. I cannot begin to express the importance of having our teachers experience the one-to-one environment prior to deployment next August. It is evident that you have a true passion for helping the students in O'Neill become successful learners in the twenty-first century.
During our brief stay in O'Neill, we were impressed with the many innovative activities, lessons, and units that are being implemented by your teachers. We were especially impressed with your ability to podcast. The podcasting tool is certainly a valuable component in the 24/7 learning environment. I was also impressed with your students. They were willing to share their experiences and thoughts on the one-to-one initiative.
Please share this thank you with all of your teachers and staff. Everyone was helpful, open, and honest. Overall, our trip was a huge success and has given us even more information to consider during our preparation for the one-to-one initiative here at Ashland-Greenwood. Thanks again for sharing your talents and knowledge with us.
