I didn’t get to say thank you before I left class so I wanted to take a moment and say thank you. Your class was excellent and I really appreciate the effort that you put into it. The material presented was effectively put together to ensure that we got the most out of it. I could really tell that you enjoy what you do. I have been training for quite some time and can tell that your passion is extremely high.
