I found Mrs. Bora's class to be quite interesting. It made me think alot about my delivery of information to students. Her class also presented a variety of ideas to try out in the classroom. On a personal note, Mrs. Bora was very receptive to my needs. Upon completion of my work I indicated my need to get my grade back as soon as posible. Mrs. Bora went out of her way to get my grading done immediately. She even gave me insight into some of my questions and things to try differently within the classroom. I was very happy using this online edition and highly recommend Mrs. Bora and this class.
