Our Students Say:

"Michelle is an exceptional instructor. Her love of math and facilitating learning was evident throughout the course. She offered timely and actionable feedback. She amplified voices, and her presence in the course created a safe space for learning. I found the cohort of colleagues to be equally generous and responsive."

~ Therese Arsenault, San Francisco, CA
