“There were about 15 people in our class and it was kind of unexpected how personal it was. We got to know our instructors, which gave us more confidence to talk with them, ask questions, and join in discussions. It made me more confident going into the job and taught me to think on my feet, so I can come up with new materials to help teachers easily.”
