“Teresa made the class click.  It takes a special kind of person to command the type of respect needed for something as silly as laughing at the sound of vowels.   I always felt that whether or not I came to class ready to laugh, Teresa would be ready to get things started.  She comes across as a whole different breed of person.  Sometimes I wonder if anyone else could have led the sessions.  It doesn’t seem possible.  She literally might be the most perfect person for her job.”
—Tom/University student in laughter class

“I realized my life doesn’t have to have this or that in it to be happy, but everyone has the opportunity to laugh…I am not as afraid and have more confidence in myself and feel more connected to the world around me.  It was like this great movement of energy outward instead of always keeping things in.”
—University student in laughter class
