“Thanks to Mobile Beacon, as a teacher, I have been able to stay connected and teach from home during the spring when I have to be in quarantine. The internet was fast and reliable. It provided me with the opportunity to stay connected without interruptions and to teach from home daily. Again, thank you!”
– Ivelisse Sabater Teacher, E-Cubed Academy/ Providence Public Schools
