"I have to tell you how wonderful this book (Book Love) has been already in the first two weeks of school for my students! I have never seen so many students reading, and they even asked if they could earn extra time reading if they won a competition. It has been wonderful so far. Thank you again for purchasing this for all of us! I am excited to get together again with the group."

"The professional development that I have attended over the years at SIEC has helped me to become a more informed and effective educator. In addition, the opportunities to network with colleagues through council meetings and networking sessions has been some of the best PD I have ever participated in. I look forward to continuing to learn and grow as an educator through my relationship with the SIEC."

"As a new administrator in Southwest Indiana, I quickly learned the true value of the Southern Indiana Education Center. The professional development offered is extremely diverse, and provides multiple opportunities for any and all faculty members to meet their own personal goals, while also growing in the needs and goals of the school as a whole. We are very fortunate to be a member of the SIEC!"

"I am impressed by (the SIEC's) dedication to rigorous teaching and learning practices for our students in this area of the state. I have been given the necessary materials and opportunities to grow my understanding of my own curriculum through the activities that I have been involved in creating for the Center. I appreciate the opportunity and look forward to many more collaborations."
