"This course has served as a wonderful reminder of who I strive to be as an educator. The behaviors that were covered are all qualities that I attempt to display, but, like all of us probably, am not universally successful doing. Having the opportunity to reflect upon my practice and being redirected towards my true instructional goals has been a very positive experience."

"I really enjoyed this course and learning about what makes a great teacher. It has made me reflect on changes I can make with my behavior management and ways to support students through positive relationships rather than just seeing my students as learners of math or receivers of scores on state assessments. The way this course focused on the relationship part of teaching and not just grades and demonstrating an understanding of the curriculum was important to me."

"During this course I have learned so much and gained a tremendous amount of knowledge. I am happy to say that I have many new tools that I will be applying in my classroom."

"I believe the framework provided in this course should be included in required training for all school staff (including service personnel, teachers, and administrators). This framework helps schools build solid learning environments by strengthening the overall foundation."
