"As the school year winds down, I just want to take a moment to say thank you for creating and sharing lessons and videos during this time of distance learning.  We included them in our weekly plans, and the kids and their families really enjoyed them.  Not only were the lessons/videos engaging and fun, but we knew in sharing them with our families that we were giving them high quality learning opportunities.  Your work and effort is/was greatly appreciated!"

"We just finished our virtual field trip! It was AWESOME! My class was so enthralled and asked great questions! Nathan was an excellent presenter and the kids can't wait to visit over the summer. Thank you again for the opportunity to do this. Even though we could not be there in person, it was a great trip!"
