    Bob Inemenger is a very good presenter who can keep your attention. He is very knowledgeable and I loved how he went beyond explaining about GT and gave great ideas to use in the class for all students. I would take one of his classes again.

  2. Stephanie – UNITED ISD (verified owner)

    This course was very interesting. I learned many strategies to help my students think critically. One of my favorite strategies is the paired association. I’ll make sure to apply it in my classroom.
