I can't thank you enough for having me yesterday. It was an experience I won't soon forget!

Everyone was just lovely. Your students were amazing and knowledgeable (considering that they were junior students!) and you could very much tell they loved what they were learning! You’re instructor Laura was just a gem! Her explanation on the 4 different layer forms were easy to follow, the activity was fun, the whole experience was something else! I was quite surprised at myself for learning something- despite being there only for a block!
