Compassion, open-mindedness, and the ability to laugh at myself to name a few, were characteristics I found a better meaning for while in this class. Whether I was tired, angry, or depressed, this class always managed to put a smile on my face.

Ardsley and Gutman provided us with a group of children aged anywhere from two to four years old.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
