My daughter has really enjoyed this class taught by Ms. Sarah. It is an engaging and creative class, filled with conservation, ecology and building a better earth/world. It has given my conservation minded daughter more information to grow with and ways to make things better for those around her. Ms. Sarah is truly a wonderful, fun, energetic, and knowledgeable teacher. She enjoys teaching and her passion for science is just wonderful.
