quote-left I absolutely loved this course! I especially enjoyed the fact that I was able to develop actual lessons that can be used right away in my classroom. Often during in-services, teachers do not have the opportunity to put what they have learned into practice. However, during this course, I now have lessons that will benefit my students' learning immediately."
