  30. Heather – HALLSVILLE ISD (verified owner)

    The content of the course itself was good, but I am a virtual teacher and did not feel these strategies fit very well with the school’s model. IF I was still in a Brick and Mortar setting, this would have been a great course to take and I would have been able to apply what I learned directly rather than trying to figure out a different way to use what was presented.
