Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Donelson

    I just wanted to let you know that this 38 year veteran teacher believes [NITARP] is one of the greatest types of professional development I have ever done, and MANY students will benefit from your hard work here in Central Ohio for years to come.  Thanks so much for all your efforts, especially this year!

  • Hall

  • John
