The Galaxy Forums have been a joy to attend, it is so encouraging to have extremely busy and important people want to spend time with teachers and actually listen to what we say. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the workshops and lectures and have been able to use all the info given out in a variety of my classes from geometry to chemistry. as well as share it with other teachers in my school.
