"Susan has been teaching at Denver Botanic Gardens for eight years. Her classes are interactive and hands-on and everyone leaves feeling full and completely entertained! Susan is engaging, very knowledgeable, and has an infectious laugh. She is one of our most popular instructors and has acquired a very dedicated following of repeat visitors. Our TA volunteers literally scramble to be first in line to help out on her classes. Quote from a class evaluation form:I’ll sign up for anything she teaches.”

"Susan makes sure her students are learning AND having fun! We hear them laughing, ooooohing, and aaaahing at every class. She's taught at the Festival for years and I hope she'll keep coming back because she is one of those teachers everyone remembers and loves. I get calls months before the Festival starts from people wanting information on her upcoming classes. She is fun, talented, and makes her students feel wonderful!"
