I enjoyed this class. We had a few tech issues here and there but it went well. I wish that the class could've been a little bigger. I wouldn't want it too big, but only 4 people were scheduled. 1 didn't show and on day 1 one was late. Knowing the average # of no shows, it might have been good to reschedule us when there were more registrants.
