A Testimonial From Ana Stewart -
"I feel one of the most important things I have learning is that teaching is not just hammering knowledge into unwilling youth, but rather a dynamic process that should inspire engage, and transform not on the students but the teacher as well. "
A Testimonial From Simone Fuselier -
"The quality, depth, and breadth of the material that (the instructor) has given us is nothing short of a treasure chest of resources and knowledge which, I'm certain, is going to serve us well in our future as educators. I feel like I'm getting more than my money's worth and am truly investing in a fulfilling future!"
