This is it! The end of our Instructor Spotlight Series…. for now. Classes start this Monday, and we’ve got one more teacher to introduce. This gentleman has been instrumental in not only learning our new content management software, but teaching our other instructors as well. He’s constantly looking for ways to improve the program, and challenges each and every one of us to do better. I’m talking, of course, about none other than Blake Behr!
