review of Indroduction to Psychology
My 14 yr old high school freshman took this class. It was extremely well organized with clear cut expectations. Danielle’s style of teaching was collaborative and she really seemed to know each student well. In fact, we had a death in the family in December. Ms. Danielle was incredibly supportive and allowed J to take the final 2 weeks later so it wasn’t in the middle of a funeral and the holidays. J looks forward to taking Sociology next year. I wholeheartedly recommend this class as a robust social science high school credit.
Thank you! I also wanted to thank you for the class. I really enjoyed it and learned a lot. You are an amazing teacher.
