GLOBE Testimonials

“This is my second year in the program. The first year I saw it as one more thing to do. Then as the year progressed I saw how the program engaged the students and even I was engaged. It loved it, I learned from it, and I wanted to do it again.”

“My students are grasping some very complex concepts as a result of the thoughtful sequencing of experiences.”
GLOBE Teacher, PS/IS 278
