Testimony from COABE 2017 Runner-up Administrator of the Year
"Susan Bernard’s 'I’m Not Afraid…Anymore' books are based on her own experience in the classroom working with adult students. Listening to her talk about how she developed the materials to meet the needs of her own students, I knew right away that these would be great for our students as well. Sure enough, we have found them to be very helpful and a great tool for students of all levels! Plus, the price is right. Give them a try, you won’t be disappointed." - Kathryn B. Thompson, CFRE, Executive Director of Tarrant Literacy Coalition, Fort Worth, TX

I'm looking forward to using them more after I receive my order." - Sister Marsha Tierney, St. Vincent de Paul Center, New Orleans, Louisiana
"My full-time job is in the medical field, but I wanted to "give back" to my community by teaching an evening HSE class. As a part-time teacher, Susan's books have kept me going. The lessons are easy to understand and easy to teach. My students love them and have often bought their own copies of the books to study at home. It's very rewarding to see so many of my students pass an HSE test." - Lawrence Beasley, HSE Math and Science Teacher at Oklahoma City Community College

As a GED® instructor, we always need resources that are simple. I love the way Susan shows examples and illustrations of every math problem. Her examples and explanations of how to solve the problems were so simple and easy to understand. Her book allowed me to better understand how to solve math problems such as equations, proportions, and geometry. I also loved the color coding, the activities, and the words of encouragements. Keep up the good work, Susan! " - Angela Payne, Instructional Specialist-Coach, Dallas County Community College District
