Holland Berson

Holland Berson likes to provide her students with plenty of information, show them her preferred method and then let them create their own path. They should always be aware of what has already been done, but have the courage and confidence to push forward and try something new. 

My aim is that my students are humble about their knowledge, confident in their skills, and never afraid of a challenge.
