WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT DR. YEN
"Thank you so much for encouragement and ideas as we go through this unusual time. I love the idea you had to include/invite parents to the distant learning class too! When we are in our school building we always encourage our parents to get involved so online learning shouldn't be any different! I also believe this toolkit is going to be a tremendous help. Thank you!"

"This was perfect. After completing 2 weeks of eLearning and 1 week of Spring Break, I was feeling overwhelmed and a little lost. I decided today was a day to just regroup and set a simple plan for the coming days. This was tremendously helpful with that."
