"I had a very trying semester filled with medical and financial issues and you worked with me to help me catch up. More importantly, you exemplify what a "Teacher" is: someone who has a calling and passion to enrich the minds of others and demonstrates this with compassion & understanding of the student life, clear instructions and communication, and a facilitator of knowledge. Your support was integral to my success this semester as it eased my stress, boosted my confidence and gave me a greater motivation to only learn but to show you the gratitude and respect due."

"I want to thank you for getting me involved with the Disability Resource Center because I would likely not have joined if it wasn't for this course. Also for having an inclusive and accessible class each week to attend."

"I would like to thank you for teaching us real life situations. You make this course interesting. I chose you as an instructor because you have personal experiences that make you very passionate about this course. Since you personally relate to this topic, I can tell you truly care."

Professor
Department of Chemistry
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences

"You did a great job of making course materials accessible to us. You uploaded each set of notes online after hand-writing them in class alongside us (something that is almost unheard of nowadays), scanned and entered the textbook problems that were necessary to complete in order to be successful in the course, provided us the answer key to those problems also online, and made sure that we knew you were accessible during office hours. General Chemistry is definitely a hard class, but your outreach made it a lot easier to know that you wanted us to succeed. Additionally, I would like to stress that the scanned homework problems and solutions were a large benefit - if one truly could not afford to purchase or rent a textbook for any reason, they still had these scanned files available to them (which I find incredibly kind and helpful)."

"I want to thank you for being a great professor and person. You showed me that the stereotype of professors who do not care are extremely inaccurate. I also want to thank you for opening up my eyes to the disability community and helping me find something I'm passionate about. I chose you as my instructor because you are extremely passionate about what you teach and very knowledgeable about all of the topics covered in your class. Your drive inspired me to pursue a minor in Disabilities and advocate for individuals with disabilities on a regular basis. You are by far one of my favorite professors."
