Firstly, thank you. You are an excellent teacher and have an excellent way of communicating potentially difficult matters in a way that is easy to comprehend. I really appreciated your level of knowledge, expertise, and encouragement of discussion in the classroom, all of which stand to me now in my own practice. You open the door to knowledge and really encouraged me to be more curious and gave all of us the space to challenge what we thought we knew in a safe space. You made a huge impact on me as a student and I really appreciate all that you did for me. “ Kevin Smith, former student
