I couldn’t say more nice things about the staff I have come across… This is a game changer for me if it continues; I will be taking continuing education classes in this way [online] for sure.

Ginny was awesome. She really took into consideration our needs as learners and she made the class interesting and clear. I learned new things from her about students with disabilities, which is not an easy thing to say when you’ve already been a special ed. teacher for 8 years.

The idea of taking mindful moments when doing routine tasks seems very manageable and applicable, even with teaching remotely

I feel like I got so much about food justice from this class, in addition to information about plants and planting. I also got some terrific resources for working with kids and ideas for good activities.

This workshop helped me learn about writing for children and the different elements and composition that go together to create a piece of writing. Got me encouraged and excited to find that VOICE.
