What Teachers Are Saying

M.RMichael A. Kostek

The content was excellent and really covered the curriculum. The presenter was easy to understand, knew her material well, and easily connected with the students. I liked how the program included exercise breaks and the wooden frog craft to break up the presentation of the information. The presenter was very patient when we were building the craft. Excellent presentation. (Video Conference program)
