“Morah Petra - Thank you for being such a great teacher for Eric! At home, he asks me to put yoga on the TV so he can follow along - all the credit to you! He loves not only his teachers but his friends in Oleem and I am grateful for the early lessons he is learning not just about letters and numbers - but also how to share, how to be caring, and how to make others feel included. Thank you!! The Hesselbachers”
