Read what one student says about the Romans Road course:
“Enrolling in Romans Road was two-fold for me: to see if I could maneuver around the site and understand the technical side of doing online training. Secondly, learning how to present the well- designed Romans Road tool on a child’s level. Both expectations were fulfilled as I acquired much valuable information in the teaching that was clearly presented with excellence. The directions were very clear and explanatory. Getting to know the other students through forum discussions and gleaning from their ideas and thoughts was very beneficial, as well.”
