This is a great class and Punya is a WONDERFUL instructor! I would take any class from him at any time again. He has a terrific, easy manner in teaching and supporting all the students in their learning!
Punya inspires me in many ways: to learn more, to search for beauty, to create and look for quality. I appreciate what he brings to our discussions.
Punya was probably the best education professor I’ve ever had. His passion and desire for students to learn was evident in every aspect of this course. From day 1 he set the standard for a balance between fun and love of learning and academic excellence. It was a real pleasure to be a part of his class.
