Qualitative Comments

"I appreciated your knowledge of the subject as well as your strong interest in teaching it. Anytime I had a question about the material, you'd give an answer. If you didn't have an answer, you would either let us discuss it and come to a conclusion or you would find us the answer. I enjoyed your class and the open form style in which you taught."

"She cared about all the students and made the course easier during the crazy time this semester. She was always helpful and wanted students to succeed."

"Instructor was very engaged and made learning new material easy. The best part of the class was the ability to be open and have great discussion. The classroom felt very welcoming and after the transition to online learning the class dynamic continues as in class. I am very appreciative of that!"

"She is an engaging instructor who encourages students to participate. You have to be prepared for class so that you can get something out of it. She was very flexible and accommodating, which is very helpful for seniors or non–traditional students."

"She was amazing. I would have never guessed that this was the first class she has taught. I learned a lot from her, and she was lovely! Very accommodating and kind."

Anything to improve?

"I can't think of anything that needs improvement."

"I felt like the class was just to long sometimes. She did a good job teaching the class and holding people’s attention, but I felt like the class dragged on a bit by the length. The actual class was good though."

"I would prefer not to change anything about the class."

"I would just say the organization of the course breakdown for points and assignments. I was a bit confused about the attendance policy. It was never an issue for me, but I would say clearing up the syllabus a little bit. Overall, she was a great instructor and I

enjoyed learning from her!"

"Nothing! amazing teacher"

Qualitative comments:
