You are a fabulous teacher Linda and having spent my 32 years in close daily contact with teachers and being one myself, it is a gift for me to be taught by an outstanding educator of your caliber. I love the way you keep your thumb on the heartbeat of the class. You know when we need help and when to just let us be in our zen sculpting state! The wonderful music, fresh baked cookies and tea are much appreciated touches. But best of all is that you are a master at your art and you know how to teach and pass that knowledge on to others and you do so with patience, understanding and a gentleness that encourages me. That is a rare and an amazing gift!
