“I think that CMC is a great school. The classes are affordable and the teachers that I’ve had are amazing and understanding. Classes at CMC have helped me so much with how I teach kids: I want these kids to have an amazing experience during their first years of learning, to have confidence in their work and most importantly, in themselves.”
