What People Are Saying
"I am living proof that there isn't a day that goes by that I don't use something I learned in our classes. It's taken two years to come to fruition but as I sit on Executive Committee or mentor my staff I am prepared and an important part of the team. I've made the jump from doer to leader, it has been a little disconcerting but nothing has ever felt better in my life" Kimberly Murray, Art Institute of California, San Francisco.
"My participation in the CTO Mentor Project has provided a strengthened connection with the state-wide K-12 EdTech community. The sense of isolation that often looms in tight budget times or during intense technical challenges is overcome in reaching out to one of the MANY folks that I now know on a first-name basis as a result of my experiences in becoming a CCTO. Thank You Andrea, CETPA, CCSESA, FCMAT and the many others who have put your energy and expertise into developing this wonderful opportunity!!!" - Michael Schenck, CCTO, Konocti Unified."This program has enhanced every aspect of who I am and how I operate as a District Admin and a CTO. The program has literaly altered my professional world." - Mary Rose Monney, CCTO, Paradise Unified.
