Scarsdale Faculty Feedback from CELF Professional Development Workshops:

“I can use sustainability statistics to motivate math lessons and to generate applications in lessons. CELF provided lots of materials/ideas to make my math classes more relatable to the real world – and thus probably more interesting to my students.”


“The CELF instructors’ enthusiasm and the different media used were huge value-added aspects of the sustainability courses they provided.”


“During the CELF sustainability professional development courses, I developed an exciting series of activities for my high school geology class. It’s great to have resource people to turn to. I have a much better understanding of how to introduce sustainability to different ages; this is important to the development of activities. It was a terrific experience working with teachers from the elementary and middle schools.”


“CELF’s curriculum materials on systems thinking fit directly into my Chemistry curriculum. Over the two years of workshops with CELF, I have increased my own personal awareness of sustainability issues. They have reinforced the importance of what is currently in the curriculum and the impetus to include more connections to sustainability content.”


“We have been able to create a central database of the projects that have been developed and an extensive resource list of all of the websites, curriculum and other materials presented by CELF.”


“CELF enhanced my professional growth by increasing my knowledge of what sustainability education actually is and by providing many, many materials and activities that I incorporated into my current curriculum. The support from CELF’s instructors to sequence lessons was invaluable. It was great to be able to meet throughout the school year during the weekend courses to extend my learning and work and to hear what continued to unfold and develop throughout the district.”


“CELF provided a TON of information and resources. I am very impressed how ready to use the materials are.”


“Our ongoing work with CELF was absolutely fantastic! The instructors were extremely knowledgeable! They provided valuable guidance and numerous opportunities for collaboration. I look forward to the continuation of this course.”


“Professional development with CELF has reminded me how important our job as teachers is. How important it is to give students the opportunity and ability to make informed decisions that will affect their futures.”


“The CELF workshop helped clarify my thinking, exposed me to new data and presented a new perspective that has inspired and given me some direction to impact learning communities. They opened the door to an area where I thought I had some knowledge in but, now have areas to explore with depth. I like how CELF’s courses were run as atight ship; course leaders helped to balance lecture with hands-on activities, and walked us through all we needed to know!! I love the individual group conference which helped to differentiate! Our administrators and course leaders are treasures and the CELF instructors were incredible!”
