About Carolyn Boyles

cboylesCarolyn was an extraordinary Tools trainer who was beloved by all she met; the Tools team, teachers and administrators. Her ability to make us laugh, and to distill difficult concepts and wrap them up in a memorable story will be a lasting influence in all of our lives. This annual scholarship will be awarded to one classroom team to cover the cost of their participation in a Tools of the Mind workshop series.

We encourage teachers or administrators who would benefit from this scholarship to apply. The scholarship will be awarded annually in the late spring, and will be announced on our website.
