What Eva has to say about Maya:

From the moment I met Maya last year, she has been an absolute joy to teach. She puts 110% of herself into every project, assignment, and class discussions. Maya takes her talent, art, and uses this to extend everything I ask of her – creating something so far above my expectations that I am even floored! I know when I open her work – it will not only be complete, but it will be beautiful both artistically and using the perfect written word. Finally, she has a kind soul. She constantly compliments her classmates and cheers them on.

What Jonathan has to say about Maya:

Maya’s use of her artistic talents, combined with her contagious enthusiasm in the classroom, has really made an impression on the class this year. She really has shown a knack for exploring and explaining the varied topics we cover via her mind-mapping skills, and in class she is always among the first to encourage and share a kind word with her fellow classmates.
