PURPOSE OF OUR CORPORATION
A few words from our President and Founder, Helene
our courses earns teachers continuing education
graduate credits, renewal units to maintain their
current licensure, or Professional Development
credits that result in lane changes on teachers'
salary schedules. Students are strongly
encouraged to apply for approval of these courses
with their school district before enrolling. As an
experienced teacher, I recognize the kinds of nuts
and bolts courses that other teachers need to help
them to survive the tough profession of
teaching. In the past I had been disillusioned
with idealistic courses that were out of touch
with reality. Our entire series began with an
onsite course called "Teacher Survival: Advice
from the Trenches." It was born out of the need
for relevant courses available to teachers seeking
not only credits for lane changes, but also
practical ideas that they could apply the very
first day they step into the classroom in the
fall. Following the success of our onsite
program, our students began to express an interest
in also taking reality-based online courses from
our company. That is how
CoolTeachersOnline.Com, Inc. came into
existence! To achieve excellence in our online
program, we hire our own teachers following a
careful screening and interview process. This is
our way to ensure that we have only the most
knowledgeable and dynamic instructors and
facilitators. They must hold a Masters degree
plus 30 hours and have a minimum of 5 years'
