What Others Are Saying About This Course
“I had the pleasure of ordering a course from you last year. It was a wonderful book study on Wayne Dyer’s “Excuses Be Gone” book. I’m a high school math teacher who teaches both upper level honors kids as well as low level freshman, and I noticed that across the board, my students can be excellent excuse makers!“
“It worked! I got all the info and re-ordered a transcript and got an email that it was mailed out today to the DPI here in Wisconsin and one to myself as well. Thanks so much for clearing it up for me. I really did enjoy the classes and the books. My niece, who is a sophmore in high school took my Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens book and is sharing it with her friends as well. Thanks for the class offerings!! I will be sure to recommend it to my friends as well.“
“I would like to personally thank the individual or group who decided to offer courses that were very ideally fitting for educators. I am more excited about these courses than any professional development I have taken in over ten years. Thank you for thinking outside the box and offering courses that sound so fascinating and meaningful.”
