"My PLS instructor, Jim Brinling, was very flexible in working with me to adapt the content and assignments to my position as a school counselor."
Repeat Participant

Tammy Moglia

"Once you take one class, you are sure to take another. They are so wonderful, helpful, and useful to any educator, no matter how many years you have been teaching. I learn so much from each one."
Repeat Participant

Craig Henninger

"PLS Classes are taught by qualified professionals who have walked the walk as educators, and for the most part are still walking the walk. They understand what we (the teachers) do every day and they are here to help us become better. They don't talk down to the students but rather across to us."
Repeat Participant

Ellen Mingle

"PLS courses have changed my way of teaching. I have learned new strategies and applied them directly into the classroom. Not only am I getting new ideas from the course, but interacting with classmates during discussions have been very beneficial as well. The courses are very manageable."
