Thanks!"
"I have been in elementary education 30 years. Macintosh and ibook were the machines I used. Having recently retired, I am enjoying the leisure of taking online classes. This class is wonderful.

As you no doubt noticed I was delighted with the course and hope that you add some more Mac classes."
