- I have spoken to a lot of teachers who went through a wide variety of teacher training programs. Honestly, I've never heard anyone describe an experience that seemed to rival what I got at Bard. I've also had the pleasure of knowing and working with other Bard graduates in my school and through professional and social networks, and they are a highly committed, effective and intelligent bunch. Bard's definitely doing something right!
