"As a long-time special education teacher, I am always looking to stay on top of the latest research-based strategies, as well as further my own education, and I feel that the graduate-level courses offered by SPU and instructed by Tammy Berg were an excellent means to accomplish this goal. The courses were well-designed, challenging, and convenient, and whether it was diving deep into the world of educating students with disorders such as ASD and ADHD, or dissecting the minutiae of the RTI process, Instructor Tammy Berg was always readily available for support, clarification, and guidance. If you are currently working in education and looking to advance both your career and your knowledge, I highly recommend both SPU and Instructor Tammy Berg."
