Storyboard for Kidlit Student
"Kaz is just wonderful! She is everything that a student needs in an instructor. She is informative, helpful, knowledgeable, precise, friendly, and concerned. As always, I walk away from her course feeling inspired and confident about my strengths, and with more knowledge about what I can work on to better my skills. The course material was set up wonderfully, and I feel that Kaz [teaches] in such a positive way that makes it fun, exciting, and a real learning experience. I feel she really cares about my success and is rooting for me to do my best. I have no doubt she spreads this feeling to everyone she teaches. I am looking forward to working with her again... Thank you!"
