Teacher Quotes

                 It may seem odd, but unique friendships are created with people on-line. The collaboration with some of the finest science educators across the world everyday makes the MSSE distance learning courses very unique as well as rewarding. ~Washington Teacher

                                  MSSE allows you to network with like-minded people across the country. So often, teachers are lone warriors. This network allows you to ask questions of knowledgeable people in your field, anytime, anywhere.
