"I loved everything about this course. Mrs. Corriera is a fun, laughing teacher. I had her the semester before and so I was very glad that I was able to take another class with her. I (for example) have never liked spiders. I actually freaked out whenever I saw them. Taking this course, I am now okay to live with them because they help the ecosystem so much."
"This was my first time doing any live classes with Homeschool Connections and I loved it! :) [Mrs. Correira] and the students were all very friendly and helpful, and the course kept me engaged through the whole semester. I hope that you guys are still here in the future so that if I get married and God blesses me with children, they can use this! :D Thank you! God bless! "

"Our daughter's future has really started to come into focus because of Anatomy instructor, Kris Correira. She is a superb teacher who clearly loves teens and appreciates their sense of humor. We are so grateful for the way she has inspired our daughter to take a passionate interest in science. We want to thank Mrs. Correira for challenging her with great material and teaching her with such grace. Because she has brought the complex subject of Anatomy to life, [my daughter] is now enthusiastically considering a career in medicine."
