Hi, I am a new Business Apps teacher (middle school) and I actually teach typing to my 6th graders. I got a new student today so I did a Google search and found your site right away. I started her out at your site and I have to sing your praises. It is awesome and the new student will be able to catch up with the class in no time. I'm surprised that there is no way to donate money to keep this free site going. This site will be critical to the success of my students. Thank you!
