"It was fabulous. he was excited about it, engaged, interested and felt respected... This past week was [my son]'s first workshop and he was totally wow-ed. He can’t wait to go to the next one and this is from someone who truly despises all of the virtual learning. We aren’t much of a screen family but this was suggested to us by a friend and it’s really fabulous. You’ve all done a wonderful job and I’m really appreciative."
