From Our Student Parents
Hi Dean, Thank you for taking the time to talk with Ben last night after class. It has already made an impact on him and us. We will be sure to pass this story on as it is a great example of how to use self control when someone has a temper.
We wanted to share with you how much fun Teo had at the seminars! What an amazing opportunity for him..
