This was a great class. I appreciated the fact that it included research and practical ideas for the classroom.
Thank you Brenda! This was an excellent class and I learned a ton! Thank you for your quick feedbacks and inspirational messages. You are amazing!
Brenda was wonderful to work with. She responded to me quickly and gave me useful feedback. Even though our correspondence was never in person, I actually feel like I had valuable conversations with her. I plan to implement ideas that I learned into my daily classroom structure.

I always really enjoy my Heritage classes. I have taken a few classes from Brenda McKinney and have enjoyed each of them. She has set up the classes so the assignments are easy to follow and the expectations clear. She has given a lot of thought to each assignment and it shows. I leave each class I have taken excited to use my new knowledge and the learning continues to stick with me and inform my teaching.
I enjoy taking the self paced classes. The professor was very prompt with answering questions and discussing topics on my course. It was a pleasure taking another course from Brenda. I look forward to taking more.
Brenda is an amazing instructor and really helped me through these classes! She understood my needs and gave such great feedback! The Mind Mapping was the best part of the homework as it truly helped me solidify the information into my brain.
