Most of you are aware that I am a licensed teacher in Oregon. My teaching certification expires every 5 years and if I am not in the classroom I am required to take college courses to keep my license current. A year ago, just prior to renewing my certification, I took an online course through The Heritage Institute.
The Heritage Institute offers continuing education for teachers through workshops, field courses, global travel studies and distance courses. I was very impressed with the diversity of courses available as well as the professional manner in which the courses were delivered.
A few months after completing the course, I put together a course syllabus and submitted it to The Heritage Institute for consideration. To my delight, they accepted my proposal! Alien Invaders: All About Invasive Species is now listed as one of their newest course available.
If you need to renew your teaching license or are simply interested in learning more about invasive species in your area, please consider this course.
