This class was one of my favorite English classes that I have taken so far. I am not a huge fan of writing but the assignments that we had in this class allowed me to learn more about myself and my writing style. I also felt that you as an instructor actually cared if we improved as writers on an individual basis. My high school English teachers never put in very much time or effort to help each individual student grow as a writer. I enjoyed the jokes and sarcasm and I could tell that you have a love of teaching that allows you to at least most of the time enjoy what it is that you do. I would recommend your class to any of my friends who go to class regularly.
I personally struggled A LOT with the attendance policy because of my issues with sleep and waking up on time. I did the best I could to get there every day but sometimes I just couldnít bring myself to get up. The attendance policy is probably the only thing about your class that I wasnít a big fan of. I think that I am taking your next lever English class next semester so I am looking forward to that. Fortunately for my grade, I think that I scheduled that class a little later in the day.
Thank you for reaching out to me as a students and caring about me as an individual rather than just treating the class like a pay check. I have a HUGE appreciation for teachers like you because my mom is a high school teacher and I know that the job isnít always rewarding monetarily, but I know that when she feels she has touched a student on an individual basis that she is being rewarded for all of the other craziness that happens at her job. I hope that you feel the same way as well. Have a wonderful summer thank you again for teaching me and hopefully I will see you in English 1200 ( I think thatís what its called?)

      All in all I really enjoyed this class as a whole. I really liked how the focus was on our writing rather than pointless other assignments and how we stayed on one author the entire class. This class ... more

      English 1100 has been interesting this year. The class was a pretty typical English course. The thing that made the course different then all the others was you. You were hard on grading but it was... more

      My experience in this class is just further supported by that video; you just never know what to expect. I think one of the reasons I enjoyed this course is because of that mysterious element. Just... more
