Mrs. Hannah

Mrs. Hannah

We rarely used computers in my class last year, and it was because of the capacity for misconduct! I never felt like I had peace of mind about allowing students to use them because of some of the sites I knew they were able to visit. Now, with NetRef, I feel like I can use computers again in class!”
