I liked the INTEGRATED SKILLS class because it was fun and we always talked and talked and talked about different topics. It was very interesting.

The PELA TEACHERS were awesome! I felt like I gained a lot of knowledge from them in the tutoring center. They knew my problems well and helped me with everything.

Living with my HOST MOTHER was a wonderful experience. We went to the theater, played board games, and even did yoga classes together. Everything was great!
