She was awesome and it didnt feel rushed at all. I thought it was only going to be an hour but it was two, so that gave plenty of time and I didn't feel rushed.

She was flipping amazing!!! Someone joined late and she somehow caught them up without stopping teaching everyone else! Good job showing technique. Overall, magnificent!!
