  • Although I previously taught in the public school system, at this time I am homeschooling my own children. I was not sure that I would be able to integrate very many things into our current situation. These courses however, are providing several ideas that we are already incorporating into our current curriculum. Thank you.

  • This is a comprehensive, practical and useful course on early onset of mental health issues in the classroom. As a Special Education teacher for 17 years -- many of those years spent in alternative school settings -- this course still had much in the way to offer in terms of knowledge, resources, and up-to-date perspectives on mental health for educators!

  • This course was taken as a requirement for the state to renew my teaching license. I am now a retired teacher and if I had not had so many years of experience or if this course was available a long time ago, it would have been more useful.
