“I just wanted to let you know that I thoroughly enjoyed taking this course! I went into it thinking, “I have been teaching for 29 years; what can I learn?” I was so very wrong in thinking that! I learned so many new things, and I will be using them in my classroom. Thank you so much for the opportunity!!!”
