one of the most attentive teachers

I’ve been extremely impressed

“This has been a great class. I’ve been extremely impressed with how you’ve been able to cover a lot of territory while staying somewhat unbiased and not presenting everything as though there is a “right” way. Even if the discussion took an opinionated turn, you gracefully and tactfully steered that thought/ issue/ opinion to a…
