I have worked with Michelle for over 15 years as a partner educator. Michelle is an incredible teacher. She is intentional about creating inclusive environments for learners of all ages. She is responsive to the unique talents and areas of growth for her students. In particular, she is incredibly skilled at helping students with language acquisition skills. I highly recommend Michelle without reservation.
