Dear Students, our long time teacher Vannessa was in a bad car accident on July 16. She sustained serious injury to her left arm and spent several days at Stanford hospital getting surgery and skin grafts. She hopes to return to teaching in October, and she encourages her students to attend other teachers' classes in the meantime. If you would like to send her your love and support you may text her at 831-345-8023 or email her at A fund has been set up to help her defray the medical bills and loss of income. Here is the link. Please help us spread the word and thank you for your good wishes and prayers for her speedy recovery!
