“One of the best professors I’ve had in my three years here. I’ve had her twice now and I have zero complaints. She helps you to learn and understand things in a fun and interactive way. She took the time to comment on every single one of my assignments, and there was A LOT of them. I absolutely admire and respect her.”

“Please join me in thanking Rebecca for all she has done for us! I was not able to sit in on the classes since the early days but I have heard great feedback. She made a great contribution to our programs and I look forward to finding new ways to involve her as we move into 2021.”
