Cheryl is an excellent teacher. She is knowledgeable, creative, patient, and compassionate. She takes command of each situation with ease. I have learned so much from her. She is determined to help each student conquer any weaknesses and through determination and strength she presses on – finding the venue the student is comfortable with, and then tackles the subject with enthusiasm and care. She is extremely successful in reaching goals which the student strives toward. Cheryl is an asset to any program she gets involved with. A special and gifted instructor that I was fortunate to have worked with. – Susan Foster (FIU Faculty)
