Comment made by student for course I developed/taught at Champlain:

"I don't want to beat around the bush here. I'm going to be honest and direct. This class is by far the best class I've ever taken. The things I learned were so exciting to me that I got Goosebumps. It introduced me to so much I'll probably spend the next several years just building on the knowledge I got from this class. I can honestly say that I'm sad to see this class end. Jesse, thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise and I hope I'm fortunate enough to take another class with you in the future. I may even go so far as to request it if I see it's a possibility. Your truly great at what you do. Thanks to class for all the great insight and discussions. Good luck to everyone!"
