Warm and Inclusive.

"The class atmosphere was so inclusive! I often attend classes and don't have a sense of belonging, but did not experience that with this class. It was interactive rather than a lecture. Our instructor knew when to let us discuss ideas vs. 'instructing' us. Persimmon knocked it out of the park!"
