"...Carolyn's extensive experience working with young children is evident as she is able to respond to their individual needs on the spot---drawing them in when they are hesitant, reining them in when they are rambunctious, and reassuring them when they are frustrated---all the while keeping the class flowing and making the experience fun for all."
