Great Teacher

I am really enjoying your class. Its very informative. I am motivated to tell stories about the many things that happened to me while I was growing up. You are funny and have so much confidence. I really appreciate the lists that I can copy and your supply list is so easy to get. I don't have to spend a lot of money on supplies. Thank you. Lynda
