Charity is a dedicated educator that makes relevant courses for science teachers in every grade. Her feedback is almost instantaneous, and she gives great ideas that push me outside of my comfort zone. This was the most useful way to spend my time outside of the classroom preparing for school. After completion of Google Classroom 1 and 2.0 my students love the new assignments, new grading, and feedback in the writing process. I appreciate Charity for making useful professional development and giving great feedback!

I can not express how impressed I am with my instructor Charity Staudenraus. She comments and gives insightful responses to all of my assignments. She is very down-to-earth and easy to talk to. Her class will greatly impact the way I teach Science. I have taken four classes from Charity, and all of them have led to the same great experience. Thank you so much, Charity, for being such a great instructor and a great person. I will never forget it.

It's been a great course that was very helpful to my current teaching situation. Charity was very helpful, responsive, and a delight to work with.

Charity is an amazing instructor. People believe that you can gain these skills by watching some videos but in reality you need a well thought curriculum that asks you to apply your skills so that you can continue to progress. I thoroughly enjoyed both the Google Classroom course and the 2.0 course.
