Loved:

The instructor kept the students engaged using creative activities for the students and explained tasks and expectations thoroughly.

Improvements:

Probably promotion of the program. This was an opportunity that children would really enjoy and appreciate. I felt not many children knew about this.

I loved how engaged the kids were and how excited and how much laughter and happy screaming my daughter did. She was so excited to share all her exploits after class.

Improvements:

Loved:

Our 10 year old son at first said he didn't like Dungeons and Dragons, but I suggested he try it out. AND of course, he loved it! He said the best thing about the class was "defeating the wizard."

“It was really fun, I loved it. I loved the mods. Elizabeth is my favorite teacher. I loved that it was like D&D Minecraft and I got invited to it.”

Improvements:

If there was more classes. And there weren’t any dungeons.

Marielle M.

I have a B.A. in Creative Writing from Brooklyn College with a focus on Fiction. I chose to work in childcare because making a difference for a kid – in any way possible – makes all the difference. I strive to be the person that a younger me needed as a child. The kids at the NYSoP are absolutely incredible. They come up with stuff that always has me on the edge of my seat. They have boundless creativity. In my free time, I like to play video games and crochet.
