********************** Teacher Feedback **********************

1. "I used these lessons along with the other consumer awareness lessons and I really enjoyed them. The students really enjoyed them and I think it was really relevant for them. I had a few teachers walk in and make comments on how they felt they should sit in on the lessons as they are really bad about clothing waste. I love how there are assessments included that are related to the content and give variety in marking options."

2. “Excellent. All your material is great.”

3. “Nicely packaged and perfect for a junior high cosmetology and fashion course--thank you!”
