"I just wanted to reach out and thank you all for such a fantastic Professional Learning Day.  It was wonderfully organized and gave me (CBU) many opportunities to network and have conversations with motivated teachers.  The work that you’re doing is remarkable and it was refreshing to see how invested Albertan educational stakeholders are in sustainable education." - Kristin O'Rourke, Cape Breton University
