I learned quite a bit. I was able to implement many things I learned right away in the classroom.

I loved it:) It has been over 30 years since I have been in school so I was a little worried about being back in the classroom as a student let alone online. Yikes, our teacher Nancy had her class very well planned, which made it easy to follow and figure out. 100% A was my grade. I’m already enrolled in the next class. These are a little expensive for online if there was any way to lower the cost that would be super helpful.

It was a very good experience of my life . I will like to go see it again and continue take my classes again . I’m appreciate it .
