I have gleaned a very honest sense of delight from reading your work. It's not only because you're a candid and thoughtful person (which you are) or a gifted and insightful writer (which you are), but also because you are so able to illuminate subtle threads that connect thinkers, experiences, concepts, theories, and lives of the past, present, and speculative future.

Just wanted to reach out to thank you - I'm teaching a middle school summer language arts enrichment class and we've been playing your games as warm ups. The kids LOVE them! Perfect brain break!

When our team became stuck forming understanding goals, instead of telling us what to do, Indi prompted us with further questions. It helped our team to understand the purpose of our project much more clearly.

When I signed up for your string of courses, I was hoping for a way to integrate a few lessons into the classroom. What I didn’t bargain for is an overhaul of my teaching practice.

You helped us see who was in the room, asses what we needed and taught us to create culturally responsive classrooms. I am forever changed because of your teaching and the relationships you helped us foster.

Coach Indi, thank you for coming to read to us about imaginary pets. We had fun with your painting art project.

Through our readings, videos, discussions, and projects, it has become abundantly clear to me that a school should not be viewed as an assembly line of intelligence, but rather as a series of small communities where knowledge is shared freely, mistakes are forgiven easily, and students actively participate in a culture of learning.
This is how I want my classroom to feel. I felt heard, validated and connected to my peers. I will bring these techniques to my classroom for sure.
