“The best part of this class was hearing from my fellow classmates who shared their own experiences at their respective schools and programs. To me, that is the best part of online learning. I mean, how often do we get to communicate and collaborate with not only educators that come from different specialty areas and who work with different age-levels, but come from different districts, as well? When I was a grad student, my teacher always said that as educators, we still continue to be lifelong learners. So thank you everyone for helping me continue to learn."
