2019 Learning Magazine's Teachers Choice Award for the Classroom
I used the Garfield program as a theme where the content was the root of all my lessons over the two week period. I integrated it into language arts and social studies. I found it to be incredibly rewarding and effective for the students.

The students were engaged and asked many questions. They all had stories of situations they've encountered and now this program has provided them with answers on how to handle themselves in the future.

The ease of use was impressive as well as the quality of the product and the students' engagement. This was extremely appropriate in light of what is happening in schools today. My students LOVED the cartoons and were answering questions.

Meet Dr. Cybrina
Each lesson features Dr. Cybrina (pronounced: sigh-bree-na) a new Garfield character created specifically for our materials. She is a CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional) and plays a key role in helping Garfield and his friends approach their online dilemmas safe and responsibily.
The Center chose to make Dr. Cybrina a female character to demonstrate to young girls that cybersecurity and technology-related fields can be exciting potential careers.
