Really enjoyed the way the classes are set up and how we're capable of posting comments and dialoging with others int he same class. Feedback on assignments were very timely!

I had such a great experience with The Heritage Institute. My instructor and the registrar were both incredibly helpful and polite. "The First Days of School" course provided a great deal of information that I cannot wait to implement in my classroom. This has been a lovely experience and I plan on recommending this Institute to others as well as possibly using the courses for myself at a later date.

I'd like to thank Mary Ann Johnson for all the constructive instruction and suggestions she has provided for me with this course. As an effective and professional educator, Ms Johnson has made my learning truly valuable and enjoyable. Much appreciated!
I have taken many online courses over the last 5 years. The Heritage online course I just completed was by far one of the best I have taken. The website is well designed and easy to use. The course assignments are relevant to the course and my situation. Overall this has been one of the best educational experiences I have had.

I really enjoyed this course. I received great overall inspiration, ideas and research-based statistics on the grander spectrum of the profession as a whole. Plus, I gained a multitude of great practical ideas I will definitely be using in my classroom. This course covers multiple topics from the first day of school to best practices in classroom management, creating objectives, lessons and assessments, and on to larger scale ideas for districts to create ways to support new teachers and keep them in the profession.
