I cannot express how valuable this course was to both my personal life and work life. As an educator, I was aware there were tolls out there to improve my instruction, but I was not familiar with any one tool. Now, I have an enormous bank of tools to take back to my classroom to improve instruction, student connection, and assessment.S.K., Reading Specialist
