    I am really grateful for the support that you have given me throughout the course. You have been the wind beneath my wings. You always ask some thought provoking questions that send me back to reading. You have inspired me in so many ways. You were really instrumental in the development of my blog, it was a challenge but you offered technical and emotional support. You are destined for greatness and an example of collaborative learning.
