Student feedback :
Covered so much. Caroline is very encouraging and enthusiastic
I wrote far more than I expected to! I was very impressed with the leadership and content of this course. Most impressed with Caroline’s gentle, affirmative attitude, her breadth and depth of knowledge and her ability to respond personally to each member of the class.
