“...Disneyland Resort felt Project Tomorrow provided a wonderful opportunity to bring educators and business leaders together to work on some common goals.”
“.. I got involved with Project Tomorrow because I wanted to make sure that every student was engaged in learning…” “..participating in the Vision for Excellence process reinforces the importance of providing inquiry-based science. “
“…It has been extremely rewarding to work with business leaders who understand the value of developing professional learning leaders in public schools.”
“ I have witnessed Project Tomorrow evolve from a vision of some creative, motivated business and educational leaders to being the core of the science education in Orange County.”
“.. I keep working with schools even in the face of budget cuts and all the other obstacles that seem to face us, because I have visited schools, talked to students and seen them learn. I have the feeling that because of our involvement, they have benefited.”
“…over the years I have witnessed the strong passion that the members of Project Tomorrow have in their cause to develop rich resources to support the needs of Orange County students and educators.”
“…one of the most exciting moments, was our first Vision for Excellence Event when one of the teachers from my school district was honored…”
“One key memory was the transition of Project Tomorrow, as a group devoting attention to the use of technology in the classroom, to a group with a strong focus on teacher education and teacher re-education. That was when the "three legs of the stool" were created…”
Peter is the king of business network and brings an awesome rolodex of resources to Project Tomorrow.
