I absolutely loved visiting your class on Thursday. I wish I had had time to go with your class to see the experiments/measurements. I was so impressed with your explanations and how engaged your middle-schoolers were – no small feat. The visit was a pleasure and I think you are an excellent instructor! -Rosemary Muir, Lifelong Learning Coordinator, Howard Community College, Columbia, Maryland
