Some comments from this year's participants:
WoW! What an incredible course, very helpful and informative. I believe now, I really can make a difference in helping the lives of others. (M.P. from Palm Beach County)
Just a note to let you know I am loving doing the lessons with my kids. I have been doing 2 lessons a day, since I am on a block schedule and have my kids extended time each day. I am so amazed at how interested they are, how much they are enjoying the activities, and how may 'light bulbs' look like they're going on. I hope it translates to good choices for them at some point in their lives. (S.A. from Sarasota County)
That was probably the most interesting course I have ever taken. Thank you! (J.S. from Palm Beach County)
...was very impressed with the vidoes and the easy accesibility to the website (J.R. from Calhoun County)
The course was easy to guide myself through and the links and videos easy to get to. (K.P. from Dade County)
I felt that the course was very user friendly. (T.C. from Brevard County)
The site loaded quickly. When I had a question about an assignment, it was answered in a timely matter. (M. C. from Dade County)
I took the course from home so I had no problems. (B.A. from Dade County)
My students and I wish to thank you all for a most outstanding program. Due to the Florida Statewide Tobacco Prevention On Line Course Sy13 I grew professionally & was able to launch creative, educational common core connective lessons/activities to foster and promote life long classroom to real world learning lessons and self discovery. (J.V. from Collier County)
