This was my favorite class so far! I have learned so much in this course and taken away so many lesson plan ideas as well. I was glad to see that we have a lot of similar ideas and teaching methods in common; it makes me feel more confident in my teaching and feels like I am doing a good job.

I can not even begin to tell you what this class has done for me. I was very disappointed that my school had closed this past spring. I couldn't find another job I was interested in, so I decided to take this class. I have enjoyed it so much that I am going to continue on and redo my whole year of lesson plans and be ready to go for a new job, hopefully next fall. Your plans are educational, fun and exciting and I can't wait to use them. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I recently interviewed for a preschool teaching position and found this class helpful in preparing for both the interview and the job. The teacher was knowledgable, personable and very responsive. This course reminded me that there's so much more to teaching preschool than most people think. Thank you!

Thank you very much! I am homeschooling my son, and while this course was designed for classroom teachers, it was also very helpful to my situation. I loved all the resources and ideas! I was very overwhelmed at the beginning of the course. I use to teach 7th grade and did not have any idea about teaching a four year old. After taking this class I am now looking forward to the beginning of our school year.

This was my first preschool/education type class taken online and I was not sure what to expect. Kt Paxton made all the difference. This was an enjoyable and useful class. The information provided was expertly presented and on point. I would recommend both the instructor and course to anyone wanting to learn more about preschool education and/or needing continuing education credits.

During all my working career, I taught business classes and worked in business. I retired at 58, and then at around the age of 63, I found I missed the rhythm of work. On my 65th birthday, I was hired into a part-time job of being an activity aide in an Alzheimer's/dementia area of a nursing home. When I started the job 6 months ago, I was not very good with crafts, songs and games. I use the Internet constantly for ideas, but there is not a lot of concrete daily lesson plans for my residents. Your class has given me the daily structure needed for my residents. I use the circle discussion. The crafts have been wonderful, and I like the idea of a monthly theme. The residents get a grin from the story books, and the songs remind them of a warm time from their past. Your class has turned me into a creative person for my residents, and they love the things we do. I live for their smiles and hugs. Thanks so much for putting the material together. What a time-saver your class has been.

I have been a preschool teacher for 9 years now and this course gave me some new exciting ideas to use in my classroom. I am so glad I took the class.

I just want to say that I LOVED this course. KT (the instructor) did an excellent job. I found this course very interesting and fun. I loved her ideas and suggestions. She made me feel confident in setting up lesson plans and dealing with situations that may arise in the classroom. Thanks again, KT, for everything!

I learned a lot and this was an incredibly enjoyable class. Thank you so much. I was feeling very stagnant in my job. But, now I am inspired and empowered.

This was an amazing course! It was very informative and well worth it. Since it was online, it was definitely easy to access anytime of the day...I especially liked the instructor’s writing style because it was definitely very teacher-like especially for the topic of preschool - cute, fun, interesting and educational through each and every lesson.
