Dear I-Think Educator,

There are so many things I want to tell you about embarking on the journey into Integrative Thinking. 

Without question, Integrative Thinking has fed my passion for innovative teaching, as it promotes deep learning and critical thinking opportunities for students. As students become more familiar with the I-Think frameworks, their eagerness and creativity becomes fuelled by their growing confidence in themselves and each other and these experiences will drive them deeper the next time. Believe that your students can and will impress you with their ability to arrive at creative solutions to complex problems.

Integrative Thinking has enhanced my practice as a classroom teacher, made me a more effective problem-solver and has given me the best school-based professional development of my twenty year teaching career.

I am so excited for you!

Wishing you a wonderful journey,

Carolyn
I-Think Teacher since 2017
