I have really enjoyed this class, specifically the prompts for self-reflection and goal setting. I am excited by the goals that I've set. I plan on using these as a tool for implementation next year. ---2017 Spring Student
I really enjoyed reading through this text. I am NOT a reader….It is not something that I fill my time with. I appreciated how the reading was short and sweet for each assignment….but it made sense and it was beneficial. Students are always evolving and changing as does my classroom management plan. As I think I am refining and getting closer and closer there will always be room for improvement. I got some new ideas and was reminded of some things I have forgotten over the years. ---2018 Winter Student
This was my first course through TINT, and I couldn't be more pleased with the level of professionalism the instructor showed as well as the content material. As a teacher, being able to complete assignments on a flexible schedule with immediate feedback is invaluable. Based on my experience in this class, I plan on taking additional classes through TINT.
