"ESA could not have put together a better, diverse team of instructors. All students absorb the curriculum in a different fashion and the diversity of your team ensures these needs are met. Well done!!! They're all people the students look up to, and I can guarantee every one of us, at some point in our career, would love the opportunity to work alongside any member of your team. "
