"I was in a bind and I needed my director credential very quickly. I found Texas Director on the DFPS website. The online program was very easy to follow and my professor was always willing to help. I also liked being able to work at my own pace. Being that I needed my credential ASAP, it was nice to be able to sit down for a few hours and knock out a few assignments. And on the subject of my professor, she was so nice and eager to help. We even chatted on the phone a few times. She was always willing to assure me that I was on the right track and answer any questions I had. Thanks Texas Director for helping me achieve my goal!!"
