Student Testimonials

Excellent – very insightful information. Extremely helpful research and applicable suggestions, handouts, etc. -Jennifer V., Advanced Classroom Management

Thank you for an amazing class; you truly have inspired me to be a better person and counselor!!! -Matthew M., Reading and Writing in Content Area

This instructor added such a nice professional and encouraging touch in his videos and at the end of the questions in the examples sections. I enjoyed reading his words of encouragement. Brilliant teacher! I learned so much more in this course than I have in previous courses. I cannot wait to take another VESi course. I have already begun to use what I’ve learned in my own classroom. I feel I’ve acquired tools and knowledge to allow me to become a better teacher. THANK YOU! -Amanda S., Violence in Schools
