Comments about the Instructor
"Rick and Mike were great! I love that we were able to have great converstaions about the topics for the course but were also able to chase a few rabbits and talk about parralel topics as well as some that weren't course specific but headed show examples of life in the 'field'. I was able to get feed back on styles of learning and teaching and becuase of the open door of topic discussion even got to learn items i wasn't expecting. This was one of my best classes so far!"
