Courses are designed for current teachers to maintain their teaching credential. Teachers are dedicated to meeting the learning needs of our nation’s most precious resources, our children. Teachers share their knowledge and their passion for learning on a daily basis. They encourage students to feel good about themselves while supporting and guiding them toward realization and fulfillment of their dreams. Individually there are few rewards greater than seeing students excited about a topic and growing in competence. Watching students mature, and achieve success, while knowing you have a part, is just one of the many rewards of teaching.
