This was so informational for me. I am not a traditional classroom teacher but I am excited to use some of the wonderful ideas and strategies to get more students comfortable with reading. Jeremiah was very supportive and gave great support. Promptly answered questions and the feedback was always positive with great insight on what might be something to try.

I truly enjoyed this class on so many levels! Even though I am a Pre-K teacher and my students are in the pre-reading stages, I still found a wealth of strategies that will create a strong literacy foundation in my classroom and to encourage a love of books with the youngest of students. Jeremiah is a passionate instructor who went above and beyond to provide resources for reading that she loves, and the feedback/suggestions I received for each assignment were invaluable. More than anything, the course caused me to reflect on my own lifelong love for reading....and how it has gone by the wayside with other things in life taking priority. The course and the reflections of other students reminded me how important reading is to me and for our students, and that it needs to be kept alive as much as possible! Thanks Jeremiah for a great course!
