Teachers are the key for the success of the future generations. As an educator for 40 years, I have seen the need to assist teachers in their classrooms. I have designed courses to show the importance of the materials presented, and to relate the material to the needs of both public and private schools. I have aligned these courses to meet the requirements of each states’ standards.
