“My experience was far better than expected. It takes a lot for me to leave my classroom of 26 nine-year olds. My team members were generous and collaborative to the amateur on the team: ME...This was the BEST professional development I have ever engaged in during my 10 years of teaching.”
- Christine McLean
St. Leo the Great School
"Thank you for the gift of experience as a part of that great team. It was, for me, a wonderful learning experience...you know my 40 years in education were all in a different world. Middle State (is) an environment in which pedagogical dialogues are just truly rewarding for both sides of the evaluation...."

"I truly value the Middle States process and used it with my staff as principal of The Wheatley School in East Williston in a very positive and engaging manner. I also found my work as a chair one of the best professional development experiences I have had in my career.”

I served as the Head of School of Mother Cabrini High School from which I retired last June. If you are short-handed on visiting teams, I offer my services as a volunteer. Please accept my gratitude for all that you and the Middle States Commission staff members do to ensure that the highest educational standards are maintained in our schools.
