  8. Martine – SHARYLAND ISD (verified owner)

    Several of my students are low socio-economic, and since it is not something I have ever experienced, it has always been hard for me to relate and understand. Just the first 5 minutes of this course were an eye-opener. Thank you!

  9. Brenda – COLUMBUS CITY SCHOOL DISTRICT (verified owner)

    Great information. Only drawback is that it should count for more CEU’s for the amount of materials covered!
