Jennifer Kundera, Social Studies Teacher
"Chris was awesome, very entertaining, and made the day fun, even in presenting online. Great strategies to bring back to the classroom and great strategies for use with online learning in the meantime."
Brandon Asdel, History Teacher
"I was nervous when I saw that the format was switched to online (with all the COVID-19 concerns), but was pleasantly surprised by how engaging Chris was, and I was inspired by all his information and resources."
Marjorie Malone, Teacher
"For being presented virtually, it was very good. Chris provided numerous materials and strategies to experiment with and use. Thank you."
Justin Thomason, Teacher
"The information was incredible and the resources Chris gave us were very inspiring!"
Mikel Irene Runnion Frye, ELA/History Teacher
"I loved the huge amount of new technological resources and teaching strategies to use, especially given I'm a teacher who is a self proclaimed luddite. Lots of these strategies and tactics are very relevant, too, in these days of digital/distance learning. Thank you, Chris!"
