"My experience with Mrs. Carpenter's class was great to say the least. The humble spirit she displayed made the class go well for me because she allowed as many questions that needed clarity to be asked. Her wisdom about grief is really phenomenal. The list of things on her website that describes the experience she had with people loosing their loved one, well in the classroom it shows with all her knowledge.When someone didn't understand something she used anologies that painted a good picture." ~~ A.M., Charlotte, North Carolina
