The teachers were beyond supportive

"The teachers were beyond supportive. They genuinely wanted us all to succeed in the course so they did everything possible to make it happen. The classes were so much more enjoyable because the teachers created an environment where everyone was comfortable and could voice their opinions and concerns whenever they felt the need to."
