“When I showed my students this website you should have heard the “OHS!” coming through the room! You know that amazing teacher moment when the students finally get the clear understanding and everything finally makes sense! That amazing moment that we as teachers strive for! I was so happy to have done this; I kick myself for not doing this sooner.” – The Glitchy Teacher
