Thanks for offering these courses for free! They were a lifesaver when renewing my teaching license!

Some of the concepts across the various methodologies were so similar, it was hard to produce the correct answers. However, the information imparted by this course was very helpful and valuable.

In looking for PD opportunities that don't take me out of my classroom, but allow numerous new ideas - this course hit the mark! I was able to complete the course on my time, and when it was convenient for me. Lastly, two wonderful perks, tips and tricks that I can immediately implement into my classroom and free!
