A Teacher's Testimony:
"The Oriental Institute is a teaching destination for me. It is a place where I find inspiration through workshops, seminars, and events while associating with a professional learning community. I never fail to come away refreshed and invigorated by the people and ideas I come in contact with. At the OI I can focus on researching and selecting the perfect lesson plan, and sharpening up my own knowledge about a particular culture and its artifacts. I know my enthusiasm is infectious, as my students become excited as well." – Michele Nowak, Educator Pass subscriber
