“The best thing that I got out of the PBL Residency was the opportunity to collaborate with so many other Christian school educators from across the province. It was moving and simply wonderful to see how creative people are and how willing they were to share their ideas with each other. It required us to be vulnerable which can be challenging but there was always such encouragement that came with the vulnerability! It became a totally safe place which is clearly what we want for our students.” Ron Donkersloot
