Welcome to the resources pages for students attending A New Beginning School of Massage. Here you will find a number of different types of resources to help you with your business & pathology class assignments.
Additionally, on this page are a number of resources I have compiled that can help you in many different arenas of your professional career—from how to cite a paper correctly to creating a newsletter, including a template, to preparing for your job interviews.
This information is accessible to you at any time and is updated periodically.This information is all general and designed to support your search for information.
Also on this page is a listing for your individual class. When you click on your class, you will be taken to a password page. You will have received the password the first class for that subject. On your class pages, you will find any handouts given during class. You can download
In your class pages, the handouts for each class will be available for view or download within days after the prior class. Once the handouts are available, they will remain available throughout your class and until about a week after your class graduates. The password will then be changed and you will no longer have access to those handouts or information.
If you have any questions about when the pathology and business are taught in other classes, you can check out my teaching schedule on my calendar (some people like to know to schedule their make-up).
If you have any problems or questions, please contact me.
