    Mavic Casas completed this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.

    I study this course 1-2 hours for every other day. The course helps me reflects as a student of teacher certificate program. It's important to use voice projection and subject knowledge when it comes to teach with the students. Before going to teacher's training, it's important to know what level will you teach and what subjects are you interested in. This is my first continuing education certificate for 2020.
