nist-l1This is what participants who have attended level 1 have said: 

“I used to think that the concept of sustainability was a bit of a pipe dream – now I believe it is achievable.”
“I used to think that sustainability was just about nature and the environment and so I am so excited to find it is connected to all the other compass points and allows a deeper level of thinking in education and beyond to deal with complex issues through systems thinking.”
“I used to think that sustainability was all about the compass but now I know that it is just one tool to frame thinking and can be used along with the other thinking tools. I also didn’t think that systems thinking would be so difficult, but now I know there are a lot of factors to consider. I will need to practice this!”
“Thanks for one of the most useful PD sessions I have attended in my 20+ years as a teacher!”

David Gammill

David teaches second grade at Wells International School and and started using Compass tools in 2015. The Compass training he received has been helpful in the classroom by empowering young students to develop their own understanding of systems. He has enjoyed watching them discover how cultural customs and current events can be broken down into parts of a system. With this understanding of systems students are more able to discover and enact long term, sustainable, solutions. He looks forward to sharing his understanding of the Compass system while at the same time learning from a highly motivated group of teachers.
