Site Visit Feedback

"Thank you!! What a true joy to see the excitement and vision at EISD and especially at HCMS!! You blew us away and we gained much from the day. Thank you for wanting to share ALL the details and help others, a sign of your exceptional intelligence and know-how." - Mary McBeth (NISD Academic Technology Services)

"I want to thank you for opening up your school and sharing all of your experience with not only the staff at DSISD but all of the districts that were granted that opportunity. You have created an exceptional learning environment and a very warm and open campus culture. I was so impressed with your teachers and feel other teachers could really benefit from seeing first hand what was going on." - Joe Burns (DSISD Curriculum Coordinator)

"I wanted to thank you both for all of the information today in the Technology Site Visit.  I really appreciate you allowing us access to your campus, teachers and students. The Wimberley group of teachers are very excited about what they saw today and cannot wait to discuss it with the rest of our staff. I would also like to compliment your staff and students. They did a fantastic job of answering questions and I was certainly impressed by them all. Please pass along my gratitude." - Jason Valentine (Wimberley Danforth Junior High Principal)
