I think that Maura is a dedicated teacher and advisor. Her students seem crazy about her and feel she is available to them and kind and a good listener. She also has a wonderful speaking voice. If I had any criticism, at all, it is that she has a certain standoffishness with parents that can be perceived as cold or aloof. I understand about teachers having boundaries, but there is a certain coolness toward parents that make it a little hard to go to her. Branson students are lucky to have her.
Maura is not only a wonderful teacher, but also an absolute inspiration. I have never felt more cared for by a member of the Branson faculty. She always pushes her students towards excellence, but she values our hard work equally, regardless of natural talent. I would recommend her classes to anyone entering Branson - even if you don't love the stage, you will love Maura.
Maura is amazing. I strongly recommend getting to know her as a person, teacher and friend at Branson. She is an amazing teacher and a great resource at Branson. She is so great and has made a significant impact on my life.
Maura is a great teacher although she sometimes makes poor decisions in getting involved in her student's life.
She is one of the nicest teachers at the school. Although quite overworked, she is always willing to take time to help her students. Excellent and very funny.
