    Although I previously taught in the public school system, at this time I am homeschooling my own children. I was not sure that I would be able to integrate very many things into our current situation. These courses however, are providing several ideas that we are already incorporating into our current curriculum. Thank you.

    This is a comprehensive, practical and useful course on early onset of mental health issues in the classroom. As a Special Education teacher for 17 years -- many of those years spent in alternative school settings -- this course still had much in the way to offer in terms of knowledge, resources, and up-to-date perspectives on mental health for educators!

    This course was taken as a requirement for the state to renew my teaching license. I am now a retired teacher and if I had not had so many years of experience or if this course was available a long time ago, it would have been more useful.
