"I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful class we had last Friday. Many of the parents in our class commented on what a great job Jenn did -- despite many distractions from a few antsy little ones! It was clear that she had experience working with young children. Her use of language and images that the young children could understand and relate to made it easy for them to follow along and learn. Parents learned ways they could help their child relax. All in all, it was a great experience for all of us."
