She was very knowledgeable and always willing to research and find an answer to a question if she didn't know it. I loved hearing relevant examples and her experiences as we discussed topics.

Thank you so much for a great class with a great teacher. :)

She was very easy to understand and was able to answer all questions. She did a great job considering this was the first round of classes she has taught.
