“I have taught for 24 years, and I can honestly say this is the first time I’ve had a textbook that checks off all the boxes…it is perfect! The PowerPoints are incredibly useful…it is obvious that they were created by an educator with actual classroom instruction experience.” - Dave Rich, Corning-Painted Post High School
