"The seminar was amazing! This was a wonderful overall experience. The pacing helped me to keep up with the reading. The depth and scope of the seminar is excellent, and I know that I will be able to transfer the knowledge I gained here in my teaching career in the days to come. I thought the articles that we read along with the books were especially helpful. The organization of the seminar was excellent and I learned so much and found multiple ways to apply it to my teaching. The Universal Design for Learning helped me to design good and purposeful lesson plans. Learning about how the brain works was an eye opener as it helps me to understand why student?s thinks the way they think. It also enables me to differentiate my lessons as per need. Specifically, I would like to thank Ms. Angie Doak for being there throughout when I needed any help and visiting my classes and giving me feedback on how to improve on various levels. She was always thoughtful and insightful."
