“I went from being 1 person by myself, writing curriculum and remembering things I learned from industry 16 years ago – to being adopted into the Core Plus family, where they provide incredible resources like Boeing.”
“I think the best thing about being a Core Plus teacher is the network and community we’ve formed in.”
“I’m not forcing education down their throats – they are eagerly sponging it up. That’s the best part of Core Plus”
“What everyone shares – its not about who is better than who. We are all better. We come together and share good practices and borrow each other’s ideas. It’s so nice that instructors are so open to taking ideas to improve themselves “
