“I was very excited when I enrolled in this course as I wanted to get a grip on the stress in my life as well as my students’ lives. I was surprised by all of the different ways to help alleviate the stresses. This course gave me some peace and my fellow students provided great insights for me to ponder. The best piece is I was able to communicate better and problem solve with my peers.” Jim Hirshouer, Cochise College, AZ
