To summarize my thoughts on this course feels emotional. I had been teaching for five years and was considered a great teacher at my very mediocre school. I felt burnt out and lost my love of teaching, and this course changed everything in four months. It reignited a passion for children, advocacy, teaching, and learning and opened my eyes to a tremendous amount of teaching that I didn’t realize existed." - Fall 2019 Course Participant
