This was a fun and interesting course for my daughter. Ms. Getson is a kind and sweet teacher with a homeschooling background which served our family well. Lots of hands-on assignments instead of boring book work. I would highly recommend this course!
Mrs. Geston is an excellent teacher. She gives clear and excellent lectures and fun projects. She is very kind and was understanding of the accommodations we had to make for the class due to our daughter’s special needs. We both learned a lot!
