"I have already expressed my thanks, but I want you to know that you made my semester much easier and relaxing for me. I have been much more anxious and worried due to my mental diagnosis and need accommodations for testing and you didn't question me or discourage me at all throughout the semester. You were 100% on my side and always reached out to me and made my semester easier to work through.

Overall, it is professors like you that mean so much to students like me. From taking time out to help me, to working with my accommodations and encouraging me to work to my full potential it means a lot!"

"This was my second attempt at this course and I wanted to make the best of it this time around. Since the beginning of the course, you have been so kind and caring about not only my understanding of the material but also my well-being. Having that support made the semester so much more enjoyable manageable.I can't express my gratitude enough. Thank you so much for making this semester and course memorable. You're a wonderful professor and I wish the utmost best for you in the future. I hope to keep in contact with you!"

"You have challenged me this academic school year. The difficulty of this course has pushed me in ways that I never expected and taught me that I need to improve my ways as a student. It was difficult adjusting to the university at first and there were some hurdles along the way but you were understanding and flexible as I established myself with the DRC to receive accommodations. Lectures were always made interesting, especially those with hands-on examples, etc., and I loved your funny quips. Thanks for helping me grow as a student. I wish all the best to you in the future."

"I enhanced my resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn during your Professional development class. You made a triple block class enjoyable as I looked forward to coming to class each week. The assignments were all applicable and even helped us learn our strengths according to the StrengthsFinder 2.0 assessment. You created a healthy learning environment as the last day of class we took professional headshots and even celebrated the last class of our undergraduate degree. I felt overly prepared for my internship and practical experience in health education my final semester. Thank you for being my biggest supporter and for making my last class of undergrad unforgettable!"

"You changed my life’s view on self-care, film and media, art, forgery, being a fraud, being wrong, being a loser! I think you gave me the insight so many of us die without: literally nothing matters, no one really cares, so if you want to do something or see something done, do it! And don’t let the fear of failure deter you, because if there’s anything you taught me, it’s those of us that lose have won the real battle. Your mad, with reason, funny about everything, because it’s all a joke. I miss your enthusiasm, your support, and your insight. If I didn’t know I would probably fail your classes because school is murder, or if I had all the money in the world, I’d take your courses every semester for the rest of your life. Thank you thank you thank you, Burt, for just being you. Also I disagree with some of your politics but that’s great! That’s the point! None of us are perfect and we should only strive to be better...or worse, really it’s all relative in the end. I bet Shakespeare would be real glad you teach his works, he seemed like a loser too. 🙂 I love ya man ps I’m sorry I never check my email I’m bound to get it (life) right eventually and I guess til then I’ll catch you on the flip side."

"You have been one of the most helpful and welcoming professors that I have had thus far. I felt comfortable going to your office hours to ask any questions that I had, even if they were about my future as a professional in the health education field. You told me about your experiences, which brought me to a greater understanding of this field and what I hope to do. I believe that you care and truly want the best for your students."
