Hi teachers!

We just had Teacher Appreciation week, and I want to take this opportunity to say a BIG “thank you” for all that you do.

Our mission at Stukent is to help educators help students help the world. Thanks for what you do in helping us fulfill that mission. As you use our courseware and simulations, we hope we’re helping you help your students so they can go make a positive impact on the world.

Don’t forget that our Virtual TA’s are here to help.

Stay tuned for some big announcements about updates coming to our products that will help you even more.

My best,
