  1. As the instructor I am pleased to report, that the very few classes paid off huge dividends.
    It is easy to teach when you have a great student, and Julie mastered it extremely fast. To her resume we may add, mastering the highways of Atlanta Georgia... with traffic, and at 100 degrees. Mastering the interstate driving, maintaining the speed limit, down-shifting, and singing out loud at the same time.
    I do not think that there is a task too hard for you Julie, and I am honored to be part of these accomplishments. Thank you for keeping our lives so interesting... Love you!

In my case, I didn’t really find it hard to learn how to drive an automatic, but I’m just a little bit confused since I started from the manual transmission. =)
