    Worth the Time and the Money!

    This class was worth the time and money in the first unit alone! Then along came the second unit and I was blown away with the possibilities for my students. I really appreciated that the tools Kara highlighted were free, but also of very high quality. I kept thinking, "How did she find these awesome resources?" This class was extremely relevant in this era of distance learning.

    Very Helpful!

    I enjoyed all of the new resources! I found it very helpful for you to show us how each resource worked as often it can be overwhelming to dive into a new resource!
