    Christine made the class very enjoyable and kept me engaged, wanting to listen and participate and learn. I have taken this class before but learned even more today. I appreciate your time and dedication to getting the job done in a fun and relaxed manner.

    My instructor was very effective and entertaining. His use of stories really helped to instill the information. I learned many things I didn't know before. He kept the time flowing nicely and really seemed to to know the information and how to present it to us. I look forward to taking this class again in 2 years.

    This class was fun and interesting. I liked the small groups and the worksheets. I now feel confident in my first aid skills that I could and Will save a life if I get the chance. Thank you!

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching over 33 years ago when I became the director of the American Red Cross in Santa Maria.  Shortly therafter I started teach American Heart Association classes, then added Medic First Aid class.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students as young as 7 years old to 70.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure you hire a professional that will work with you in person, not just a web based class. 

Lifesaving skills cannot be learned soley over the internet.

Make sure that you are taking the correct class for your needs.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What class do you need specifically for your job, school, certification?  There are several types of CPR and first aid classes.  Make sure you choose correctly.
