I have been very, very proud of the work our students have done and how they reflect the use of 21st Century skills. From them, I have received a video on animal cruelty, an illustrated book of poems, a movie on snowmobiling, an illustrated children’s book, and much, much more. Not only have the students completed projects that interest them, but the skills they have learned will last them a lifetime.

Because of the skills that my former students have acquired from your program, they are able to assist the district.
I am amazed. This room is running itself. The kids understand the GenYES site, and know exactly what to do. A few of the kids are already certified… For a split second there I was almost annoyed at being bored and having shockingly little to do. Then I realized that I have nothing to do because the kids are all working, focused, and helping each other! What a wonderful reason to be bored!

By implementing the GenYES program at my school, my third grade students became leaders and mentors for teachers, other students, their parents, and local business leaders in our community.
