The instructor was knowledgeable, thorough, engaging and warm. A superb mix of “teaching”…AND engaging the class in their interpretation and understanding of the material. Her management of the class on Zoom was also excellent.

Everyone went out of their way to be warm, gracious and welcoming to me as a new member.  I look forward to participating more actively as time goes on.
