13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
I think Professor Shook's major strengths as a teacher is that she is very clear on the material that she's teaching. She clears any questions if there are. She likes to have her students to participate every day in the class discussions that way no one is left behind not knowing what we are talking about in class. She types out the certain notes that she wants us to study and also add our own words if we have any.
Professor Shook's major strengths as a teacher are her knowledge of the subject and her humor. Professor Shook is very knowledgeable about sleep and the science behind it. I can see it in her every time she talks about it and smiles that she truly loves this subject. It's fascinating to see her still fascinated about the things she is teaching us. That of course gears our fascination also. Her sense of humor is another strength she has. She is able to laugh along with us and even make us laugh. Her sense of humor makes us feel comfortable and safe and makes us feel ok to learn in this classroom.
Sheryl Shook really looks out for students by making sure we know what's going on in class and answering any questions me might have about the topic we are on. She is very enthusiastic about teaching her subject.
Very organized and effectively taught material in an efficient manner. I wish she taught all science classes!!!!
She cares about students.
Very understanding and very clear on her communication skills.
As a teacher, I think Sheryl knew the material very well and she taught it in a great way too. I liked how she posted the notes on laulima so it was accessible and during class we just added on to the notes; so it was easy to understand. She is incredibly nice and always encouraged class participation.
Wow, seriously, everything is a strength about her... the only thing I didn't mark as strongly agree was how accessible she is outside of class because I never needed to see her, but I'm sure it's good! Dr. Shook is one of the best teachers out there, and you can tell she truly cares for each and every one of us. She doesn't choose favorites and wants everyone to succeed. Her course material is down so tight and to a science, that each lecture is packed to the brim with interesting information from every angle and perspective about how and why we sleep, as well as everything related to the subject! She's got this class perfected!
There are soooo many to list, but the stand-out strengths are: - Depth of knowledge and ability to articulate complex material in a simplified, concise fashion. - Very nice, unpretentious, approachable, awesome personality. - Cares deeply about the subject (understandably so--I am convinced that we should care deeply about it as well)--teaches with a passion that is very rare. - Creates very clear objectives - Wants students to succeed--this class isn't about grades, it's about what you carry from it and teach to others when the class is over. Ensuring that the material will stick so that we can maybe create an impact on society. - Encouraged EVERYONE to participate--forces us to think for ourselves.
Exceptional professional background. Likely OVER qualified for her job. A rare gem at KCC.
everything!
She is very intelligent and she explained in depth whenever we went over a lecture. Her overall class was very interesting and not very hard at all. She made it fun with all of the class participation activities.
her energetic, upbeat attitude
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
There are no changes that Professor Shook needs.
Nothing! Great work.
N/A
Leave her be!
Nothing.
Have fun relax
No changes
None. If anything she's too nice =)
- Teach an upper-level sleep physiology course???
More class participation in some way. Engaging students in conversation would be a very nice addition to this class - perhaps discussing their own personal experiences with sleep related problems on a daily basis.
none!
It wasn't her fault, but the room we were in was kind of hard to adjust to because the computers on the tables were blocking our view of the front of the room. But teaching wise, I wouldn't want her to change anything.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She would have her students interact with each other when we have a class discussion and if the student that is being called on that is unsure of an answer, she would walk them through to a correct answer. She encourages everyone to ask her questions and if she doesn't know the answer, she would go research on it and she would get back to you as soon as possible. She has announcements every class period reminding students about certain deadlines for assignments, exams and also for any reading that is needed to be done accompanied with the lecture notes.
She would provide us with the opportunity to go back and look at our tests and see what we did wrong and have us correct it and get some points. She would also provide us with the opportunity to garner extra credit points by having us do trivia games and small assignments.
Shook gave many opportunities for students to improve our grades and stayed after class to meet up with students to hear what they have to say.
Always met after class or encouraged students to ask questions in class.
She cares about fairness. She always listen what student says.
she care and was understanding to all our needs at all times.From the temperature in the class room to our problem dealing with work and school.
Sheryl showed concerns by telling us to make corrections for our first exam to boost up our grade. She always gave announcements before class started on what we should study and any upcoming activities and tests that we need to attend to. She also curved our test scores which was very nice of her.
She always cared about and listened to our problems, and tried to give equal time to each student for class participation! She would stay after and talk with anyone who needed help.
- All of the material she has taught demonstrates her deep concern for all of humanity, and all of her students. - Very straightforward learning objectives. - Doesn't rely on powerpoint lectures--she writes on the board, which keeps pace with our note-taking. This is very effective, because we (for once) can keep up (for too many professors rely on powerpoint). With that being said, she does use powerpoint for images. --> maybe have all images available through laulima as supplementary material? - Encouraged all students to participate, as aforementioned. If students didn't know what to contribute, she guided them to the answers.
Takes it upon herself to provide students with the resources they need in sleep associated/mental illnesses. Went above and beyond for me in particular - showing concern and offering advice and support.
always checking in with us
She always wanted the class to make sure that we introduced ourselves to each other and that we were comfortable with each other, which I thought was pretty cool because most professors don't care how students feel towards one another.
always is open to talk to students
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes I would recommend Professor Shook to students because I think she is a very knowledgeable teacher and that she loves teaching. She tells us in class that she's just like us students, learning something new each day. She shows that she cares about her students. If a student hasn't been going to class lately, she would approach them and she if she can help them with anything.
I would definitely because I have learned a ton of information I never knew about sleep. I feel that everyone should have her class and be knowledgeable about the after effects of sleeping and not sleeping enough. She is also fun and engaging with students. Her drive to want to teach us will drive us to success.
Yes because she is very dedicated to her students and teaching this subject.
Yes !'!! Science of sleep is important and so engaging and fascinating to learn! It was a bit overwhelming at points but Sheryl is there every step of the way to help students succeed.- she'll help you develop yourself in studying and utilizing what you've learned into the real world.
Yes because her lecture is easy to understand.
yes i would very highly.
Yes I would recommend Sheryl to other students because not only is she an awesome teacher, but her teaching methods are excellent as well. It's easy to learn from this incredible woman.
Yes, hands down, she's the best!
Absolutely. I would recommend this class to EVERYONE. Mind-blowing information that will change your life. Plus, Dr. Shook is amazing.
Any teacher who shows concern for their students is an A+ professor to me. In my opinion, that is the most important quality of a teacher. Yes I would recommend her.
yes! awesome teacher!
Of course! Her class is one of the most fun and interesting classes I have ever taken at KCC.
yes, great teacher/person
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Professor Shook makes her class fun and interesting. You always learn at least one new thing each class period.
Professor Shook has really taken a subject that was hard to learn about and made it easy to learn and fun to learn.
N/A
It's great to see professors who are passionate about what they do on a daily basis and is so encouraging to students that want to create a future for themselves.
She was the best teacher this semester.Understanding and easy to reach.
I just want to thank Sheryl for teaching such a great subject, I think this was a very important class to take. Keep on keeping on, you're amazing at what you do!
Thank you for your teaching, your compassion, and for being an advocate for sleep. You are inspirational.
thank you for an amazing semester :)
The last assignment we had was our sleep disorder poster board topic. That was the most fun I have had in a class in a while because we got to interact with other students and staff and inform them about our topic. It was really fun and it felt great to teach people outside of our class about stuff they never knew before.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Enthusiasm, heart, and is very empowering as a teacher.
Sheryl is really fair in her expectations of her students. She doesn't expect an excessive amount of work done, but at the same time, she pushes us to be successful and outstanding. This course is so relevant that it doesn't even seem like we're doing work at times. I loved it, and I hope others can have this experience too.
Sheryl Shook always cares for her students and is very enthusiastic about the subject she is teaching.
Very understanding and considerate. Very clear with expectations but flexible when she needs to be.
she know what she is talking about,
I think Sheryl's major strength is that she cares about her students. Everything that she does for her class is because she cares. She isn't just teaching something she has to teach she is teaching because she wants to share all the good information she knows, and that is beautiful.
everything!
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
practice writing a different section (intro, abstract, analysis, data, etc.) for each experiment we do.
Nothing
None
Be more confident
Because it's the first time this class has happened I think this is why this happens, but if she outlined timelines and everything better. Maybe a little more structure. Also, maybe she should prepare a lab manual in some way for the students. If she wants to save the students some bucks maybe a list of where to get the info.
none!
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She loved her students, and everyone felt it she was amazing! She always made effort to be understanding of everyone's story/situations was a firm believer in letting her students get well instead of going to class.
Sheryl showed concern for her students by always staying in touch and being available if we ever needed her. She was very good at answering emails in a timely manner and always open to scheduling appointments with us.
If students had questions or a hard time understanding something she would always try different ways to explain the topic so that students could understand the material we are learning.
Always available. Sent reminders and took our input into consideration. Let us make decisions to make the class best for everyone.
she is the best we all love her.
Sheryl shows concern for her students naturally. She takes her time to think of what the student might need for the future (in her class or in life, however you want to read it) and then tries to prepare for it in advance. That's a good thing that she is looking out for her students.
always there for us and helped us
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes!!!
Yes, because she makes learning fun and seem like we're not doing work when we really are. She is also always happy, which rubs off onto everyone else.
Yes because she really listens to students concerns and helps students to her best ability.
Yes. She's a great teacher.
yes yes yes
Yes, of course. Not only is she an awesome person and teacher but also the course material helps you and can better your life. Absolutely. Matter of fact this class should be required. Teach students how to sleep and practice routines, can we say better students better grades.
yes! awesome teacher!
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I love her! (^^) <3
Thank you Sheryl for a great lab class. Even if it was your first time, I think the class was very successful.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She is a very good professor. She knows her material very well and answered all questions by students in a knowledgable manner to where we could remember it. She was very eager for all of her students to learn the material. She made the subject much more interesting.
Dr. Shook's strengths are her firm grasp on the material, her ability to find ways for her students to learn the difficult material, and her holistic approach to teaching. She is also well organized and prompt in correcting and grading assignments and tests.
She is very knowledgeable in her subject that she teaches.
Sheryl is an educator and encourages you to think critically about the content you are learning. She has an integrative teaching style for those interested in the health/medical field. She is a great resource for information surrounding the field.
Amazing human being and very smart, organized and put together.
Very passionate instructor and cares about her students. Very clear about what needs to be studied for exams.
Professor Shook is knowledgable in the course material and is clear on what information is important to know.
Showing concerns for her students and knowledge. She wants her students to do good at understanding the material.
she is very nice
Knowledge of subject area.
Knew her course and knew how to teach them
Her knowledge
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Nothing, she is doing great.
Nothing, really.
Do not do hybrid classes. It is not befitting of the subject.
N/A
Nothing.
no more
Stop making exam questions into logic games. The subject matter is detailed enough that providing both All of the above and none of the above answers on complex test questions makes them nearly impossible to answer with confidence, because it is difficult to know whether I taught myself correctly before the test, and therefore incredibly difficult to rule out those answers while also trying to apply subject knowledge.
Nothing to change
None
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
I left on a trip and she helped me to get ahead on my work without any hesitation. She guided me to getting my work done on time so that I could enjoy my trip as well as getting ahead. She even helped me to get ahead in my zoology 142 lab by letting me sit in with her. She also would never let a student leave without understanding something. If we had a question she would do her best to answer it to the best of her ability. She always reassured us that she would be there after class for any questions and made sure we knew her office hours or when she was available.
She was always available for students and answered students emails very promptly.
She will check up on us and talk to us.
Professor Shook it the time to help students when they were confused and if one or more students asked a similar question for a lab group she brought it to everyones attention so everyone would understand.
Answered are questions during class or outside.
she give us study guide
She open her office for her students, she stayed after class if any students needed help
Always available
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes, definitely. She is a very organized professor. She has the criteria set out for her students, which helps us to know what is expected. She also curves exam grades.
I would encourage those students who really want to learn the subject expressed in ZOOL, to take Dr. Shook's class.
Yes! She is one of the best! She gives students a curve on the exams because the exams are always so very hard because it is a hardcore subject to learn and I really liked that.
I recommend Sheryl's hybrid class to those who are self-motivate and have disciplined study habits. There are many assignments which test your work ethic and application of content you've learned. Sheryl's class is a very interactive learning experience which gives you the opportunity to be a communal thinker with a semester-long group which you do case studies of patient symptoms for diagnosis.
Yes because she's is a good teacher but no because the hybrid class is not great.
Yes, she is available for extra help and explains the material as she asks you questions about the material to make sure you understand
Yes, you will learn a lot.
yes, she nice
I think Dr. Shook has a great knowledge of her subject area and is a good teacher. The problem with her class is that she rarely actually teaches due to the massive amount of time given to the PBL, which I think is inappropriate at this level of instruction. As a beginner in A&P, I did not benefit from learning from my peers, who are also beginners, as I would have from learning from Dr. Shook. PBL would be useful for homework, or as a supplement, but it made it incredibly difficult to learn the very complex subject matter well enough for exams, because student's time was focused on the PBL questions, rather than covering the massive amount of material needed to pass an exam.
Yes, class is tough but if you took time to study and go over materials you will pass
Yes
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Keep doing what you are doing, you are awesome!
She is super cool and always available to help students however she can!
She's an amazing person, smart, kind, and understanding.
she is charismatic
Thank you
hi
Shes great, easy to talk to and willing to get the grade you want
18. Other comments:
Thanks for a good year!!
Your awesome.
If I had wanted to teach myself A&P, I would have bought a book and stayed at home, not enrolled in a class and taken the time out of my personal life and finances to have an interaction with an instructor. The class seems like a wasted opportunity in some ways, because Dr. Shook knows the material and can explain it well, but the focus of the classes was never on her knowledge and ability to teach, but instead on students teaching themselves, which I did not think was an effective use of our time.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She knows a lot about zoology and was overall a great teacher.
She has high energy and I could tell from day one that she loved teaching and loved the subject. Sheryl has a great personality that made class easier to be in.
All around efficient within the subject matter and is able to teach the material with provided resources for later studying.
Professor Shook is a great teacher and really cares for her students. She wants each and every student to do well in the class and is very understanding. She knows the subject but makes it interesting and easier for students to understand. She is very approachable as well.
We need more teachers like her. I can tell she loves her job and loves the field that she is in. Very knowledgeable and has the ability to ensure other can comprehend as well.
Knowledgable of subject. Quick responses.
Uses real life situations in her lectures that are very helpful and more comprehending. Different from other professors who just read of the ppt.
Her passion for the subject and her students literally shines from her. She has an amazingly positive vibe and encourages her students to feel comfortable and participate.
Sheryl makes all of her information very clear for her students. She takes the time I'm class and out to help people understand the concepts.she doesn't make it hard for people so they will in turn fail,she is a hard teacher however because she is organized and explains processes of the body clearly it's easy to grasp if you study and ask questions.
great knowledge about the subject and truly helped students to understand the subject matter.
Always available via email. When you need help she there for you
Communication, organization, clarity, personality and knowledgeable.
She knows the course material perfectly, she always encourages participation, she's awesome, she's just the greatest teacher in the world!!!!! =)
Dr. Shook is very knowledgable and such a bright, lovely instructor. She genuinely cares for students and offers suggestions and challenges us to understand the material. She is an inspiration to students entering the medical field.
not only does she know the material really well, she is very understanding of the students and wants them to succeed.
She is such a good teacher. The whole package.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
No changes. Everything was good!
I wish that the study guide was a bit more detailed. The study notes are an outline that follows the book so I wish I could better pinpoint what needed to be studied under each topic.
Only more lecture time, but I did enjoy the hybrid class. Some chapters I could have used one more lecture--the digestive chapter was alot of information.
None.
None. Best teacher I have had at UH
NONE!
Be more available other that after class.
Would love to have her lecture twice a week.
NONE
None.
more lectures, more hand drawings. The case studies, though interesting, didn't help me at all learn the material. To me it was a lot of work for something that didn't help me prep for the material/test.
None
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She kept us updated with our grades and had office hours if we needed help.
She was always available after class to answer questions and emailed back in a timely manner. She is also very understanding and willing to work with you on anything that you may be struggling with. I liked that she was always positive and encouraging.
Yes through numerous emails and opportunity to learn better study habits.
She is very accessible to students and willing to discuss any issues that you may encounter along the way. She's willing to work with you and help you throughout the class.
She was really good at responding emails, and would take time to talk or follow up.
Always there for you in person or email.
Very accessible outside of class.
She always lets up know to come and meet with her if we have any questions or if something is unclear.
always answered questions with more detail and encouraged students to outspeak their answers.
she showed great concern. She is very understanding
Ms. Shook continually inquired about students concerns and offered resolutions to any problems. Example:If students were not achieving their goals,she directed them on a path for success.
She didn't wanna just lecture us. She actually TAUGHT it to us!
She offers students to ask questions if they do not understand the material. She stays after class if we have questions and she is very approachable.
gave extra credit opportunities, was available after class
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes. She is super nice and is very helpful.
Yes, this class is difficult but a good teacher can make a big difference! If I was in a different Zoo 142 class I think I would have dropped it and taken a W but I decided to stick it out because Sheryl was so helpful.
Yes, for sure
Yes, she's one of the best teachers I've had the pleasure of taking here at KCC.
Yes I would. If a student took her class and looked at the situation as "I just need the credits" she would change that student and inspire more commitment to the subject and possibly encourage that student to really consider health professions. Professor Shook would open the student's eyes to the amazing world of health sciences.
Yes, you will learn so much.
No reason needed. She's just a very good teacher.
ABSOLUTELY! Sheryl is one of the most inspiring women I have ever met. She has done so much in her life and specifically the field of science that she motivates me to dream big. Hands down one of the most down to earth, impressive and friendly professors I have ever had.
yes!
Yes, great teacher.
Yes, read above.
YES YES YES YES YES! BEST ZOOL 142 TEACHER EVER!
Yes and I also hope to have another class with her in the future. She has a good class setup and helps us digest and understand the material.
Yes, she is an excellent teacher and she will help you reach your goals in the class.
I have recommended her. However I always tell the student about the hybrid teaching style, as it isn't for everyone.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Nothing.
Thank you for you're time and great attitude!
She's the best science teacher I've had in 5 years. I was motivated and always wanted to learn in her class. She really presented the material in a way that is fun and super interesting. Great educator.
Awesome teacher. I learned so much
Her teaching styles are awesome!!
I want to know if she can be my life mentor! She is truly amazing!
Yes, she is very organized and positive, and cares about get students.
I am so very thankful Dr.Shook was very understanding and a knowledgeable professor. I learned so much from this class and love the visual (drawing) lessons. These styles of teaching truly helped me learn as a student.
She explains the subject to where I could understand and always encourage participations.
She is just an exceptional professor, would take her for any class.
Thanks for everything =) wish I could've taken you for ZOOL 141 too
She is a wonderful professor.
I love her as a person and as a teacher. However, it was not the best learning atmosphere for me
18. Other comments:

You're awesome!!!!!!
I learned thru this class that I need more lecture style teaching for intense subjects like A/P. I wish I could have done better in the class, but this was very difficult learning atmosphere for me. Although the case studies were interesting, I felt that it took away valuable lecture time and I didn't really learn anything from them.

Dr. Shook is very knowledgable and such a bright, lovely instructor. She genuinely cares for students and offers suggestions and challenges us to understand the material. She is an inspiration to students entering the medical field.
She knows her materials very well and she knows how to teach them in a way student can understand

She is very understanding and willing to help you understand if there is a miscomumication.
Knowledge
A very knowledgable, energetic and fun professor.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Keep it up, I feel like I could've learned better with in-class exams as opposed to online exams held in the testing center, but this seemed like more of a departmental issue.
None.
No changes
Ok so I mixed up my lab survey with my lecture survey. I do not believe you need to make any changes in lab the class was great. You also have a great technique for teaching in lecture also. But since I mixed them up, I am going to write under this one what I would of liked to have more of in lecture. Sorry if my mistake is confusing. In Lecture I would of liked to have a little more lecture time. I feel like we spent too much time on case studies and that we did not get enough teaching on some of the material. Also I would have liked for the lectures to be described a little bit differently. Most of the lectures you said basically the exact same thing as the study notes. When a topic is described to me in a few different ways it is easier to comprehend. The material you thought was difficult to grasp you talked about in a completely different manner than what was written.
None
None
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She always suggested good study methods for memorizing histology and was very thoughtful to keep doors open for ventilation on dissection days!
She always put students health first during lab. She would advise us to take breaks so we didn't breath in too much of the formaldehyde. She explained things thoroughly and answered questions if we had any.
She offered student go over exams and go over them and explain why its wrong, she offered help after class and made appointments
Yes she took the time to help students before and after class
By making all the information clear.
She always make time for her students
Always available
She would give some key points of what to study for the exams. If the students needed help, she would tell students that she is willing to help.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
I would recommend Ms. Shook to any ZOOL 142 student because she will go beyond the subject matter to make sure that we're learning all we can about human anatomy.
Yes, and I would also love to take another class with her. She made learning fun and made it easy to ask questions.
Yes, because she know her material well and she willing to help if having trouble getting the grade you want
yes, she is caring, teaches you what you need to know and explains the material in a clear way
Yes, because I learned so much from her.
Yes because she is awesome and she makes lab fun and interesting not boring.
Absolutely
Yes, the class is fun and easy. You will learn a lot. Just don't take the class that starts at 8:00 if you're not a morning person.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She is a wonderful professor.
She should teach 141 and micro, so many Assets would probably understand better.
Keep up the good teaching

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She is a great teacher and really enjoys teaching because she likes to relate reality with the subject! Her strengths are just her great sense of humor and personality! it really shows in this class and really helps us strive for a more interesting mind.
She is very knowledgeable and able to explain the material which makes learning easy.
She explains things carefully, explains why concepts are important, and makes sure everyone understands. Also makes sure students are comfortable and enjoy the subject by making classroom learning non-stressful.
Sheryl is passion about her subject matter. She knows how to teach us so that we understand and she makes sure its not confusing. Her teaching style is great! She incorporates layman's terms for understanding but make sure we know the correct terminology for exams. She equips us with the knowledge to the foundations of anatomy & physiology.
She relayed information well.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
None.
none
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She was always available and willing to stay after class to answer any questions.
Listens to and answers all questions. Encourages input and dialog. Keeps us informed of our progress.
She is available to us at any time. She will answer any questions we have. She gives us reminders, study guides and quizzes to help us understand the information to be able to pass her class with understanding and not just memorization.
She was more than willing to work with you if you end up falling behind as long as you put in the effort to try.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes, I would recommend Sheryl Shook because she is compassionate, knowledgeable, organized and wants all her students to do their best.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
she is so smart and interesting!!!! great teacher!!!
She knows her stuff very well.
lectures
she is very passionate with science in general and was very in depth about learning how sleep affects your body. It really took an interest for me when learning that sleep can do a lot.
She has an abundance of knowledge and a great way to deliver information. She makes it easy to understand the course material but also interesting.
She knows so much about everything we study. I don't think I have ever had a teacher who seemed to know everything, ever, about our subject.
She knows super-well about her major and is good at teaching students the information more likely as telling interesting stories.
she clearly explains all the material that we need to know and is really engaging. A very charming lady.
She makes me excited to be in class.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
I would suggest not having so many different lectures all into one test. I feel that was overwhelming for me and it had an impact on my grade. Too much information to process.
Nothing
None.. Ask for a raise :)
I learned so much from her. I wish she taught more classes.
Maybe she can create more activities that are related to the course subject (although there are already some).
nothing, hope the laptop is still kicking :)
It's more for the course, I wish it was 2 days a week and longer classes. Ms. Shook's classes seem like they really get interesting to close to the end.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
always stays after class to talk and answer questions, even out side of school subjects
She was very down to earth and a very nice caring women. If you needed help I wasn't afraid to ask. She makes you feel comfortable.
yes, she show alot of concern to her student when i was out and sick she makes me make up for the assignment and exam. very nice teacher
She would always show concern from emails and always answering questions about things related to sleep.
She always made sure we understood the material and reminded us of test, or any other things that were significant.
She made sure we all understood everything we did in class. She taught us using many different approaches. She demonstrated respect for us all, as people, not just as students
She is really open-minded lady who makes students feel comfortable to ask questions, and she is really patient at answering you questions.
She makes it clear to us that anytime we need to talk to her or if we have any concerns, she's all ears. Being very knowledgeable in this field of science and how she wants to spread the word about sleep science itself its good to know that there are people out there who may not know you at all, but are still willing to inform you about things that you may or may not be aware of to begin with.
VERY VERY much so. I'am in the Hawaii Air Guard + Work 60+ hours a week and Ms. Shook was very easy to contact and very understanding.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes ofcourse
Yes because she is a very nice teacher who i learned about from. Also no because all of the test are extremely hard. Too much information to remember and process for one test. I was very overwhelmed and I stayed up late every night to study for my test but still I didn't do well.
yes, she very fun but you need to be serious in her class to fully understand the science of sleep.
yesssss you will have a lot of fun learning about sleep
Yes.. Awesome class and a very interesting subject.
Yes. This was one of, if not the most fascinating class I have ever taken at KCC.
Definitely yes. She is both an extraordinary teacher and a super-nice lady at the same time.
I would, she'll brighten up your mood with the simplest phrase that everyone here in Hawaii should know.. I hope. Refer to Other Comments :)
I already have. I dropped my A/P class this semester because I had a lot on my plate and had heard that she teaches that class so I'm looking to take it with her ASAP.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
awsome teacher
She is an awesome caring person who shows concerns for her students and she always provides a good atmosphere in her classroom.
n/a
Stay as you are and inspire other instructors to be more passionate about teaching their students.
She is an inspirational instructor. I feel grateful to have taken her class.
This "sleep" class was really a great experience and helped me a lot.
Hope to see you around Dr. Shooks! Good Luck in your Sleep Science Lab that'll be opening sometime in the near future!
Sheryl Shook is by far the most realistic, caring, can knowledgeable instructor I've had.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Mrs. Shook is by far one of the best instructors I have ever had as a student. She always came to class with an aloha attitude and was always avaialable for help.
very knowlegeable about subject.and presnts subjects in a very easy.way to learn.
Clear, specific, extremely organized, extremely skilled at breaking down complex concepts to understandable form, very mindful of student's busy schedule which manifests into her giving you only assignments and information you need and no more, and overall her ability to minimize barriers to learning and earning desired grade so that the only remaining factor between you and your A is your effort.
Professor Shook is very knowledgeable in the subject being teach. If she wasn't sure about a question asked by a student, she would get back to them as soon as possible with an answer. Whenever students emailed her with questions or concerns, she emails back right after so students are right back on track with their studies. She provides clear instructions for each assignment assigned out. During the lectures, she provides pictures related to topic of that class period to serve as a visual aid for students to follow while she is explaining the chapter we are on.
she really knows her material and easy to follow
She knows her science very very well
She has a lot of resources available for her students because this is a hybrid class everything is done online and we only meet once a week so having these resources are helpful
I love her as a teacher. She is always willingly to help students, she knows the material well, she communicates effectively with her students, she offers extra help after class, and her study guides are easy to read as well as understand. I loved that she applied the material to real world situations because it helped me understand the material better.
She knows her subject area too well that I couldn't fully understand and somewhat made it confusing.
Sheryl is very understanding about and unexpected problems and can't make certain due dates for exams and assignments. She is flexible if you speak with her and let her know your situation. Class always goes by fast. Never a drag or a waste of time. Every class is productive and can learn a lot.
She really enjoys sharing her experiences in the medical field which helps us understand certain tpics a little better
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
None that I can think of.
No suggestions
None
nothing.
NONE
I'd suggest to extend the class hours for zoology classes for at least 15-30 more minutes because she went over our chapter way too fast.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Mrs. Shook made herself available for extra help at all times. She responded to emails promptly and always gives you that extra boost of confidence to succeed.
replied to eamils quickly, always answere questions in a way like She actually cared and really tried to answer it the best shecan.
She is also very compassionate and mindful of life's curve balls and will work with you to help you achieve despite your circumstances, granted you put in the effort to do your part.
Whenever students email her with any questions, she emails back right after to clarify any misunderstanding and to help us move forward in our studies. She asks students if they have questions and she would answer all of them clearly and well detailed. She reminds students when exams are coming up and when assignments are due making sure they all know to complete it.
she made sure every student was doing well. if they needed help she would always tell her students to email her. she is very understanding
Office hours were always open, extra time to finish work
She shows concern by working around students schedule if a student is sick she has make-up work that is equivalent to what the discussion was that day.
She communicated effectively and she always offered extra help. She took the time to talk to each student during class.
Sheryl always curved the exams which always bumped our exam scores a little. She always emailed us letting us know if we are struggling to come see her and she'll help.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
I have already recommended her to several students and they have already signed up for her class. She is just an amazing instructor all around. I am walking away from her anatomy course with alot more confidence in myself then I have ever had. I got sick mid semester and was hospitalized but I bounced back fast and still kept up with my material. I will never forget the email I received from her that really just let me know that she noticed that I was a go getter and she actually noticed how well I was doing with the course even though I was sick and the last line of that emial that said " You Can Do Anything". Those words coming from her meant alot to me. I have all much respect for her and that made me feel so confident. She is just a great person. I only wish the world could be filled with more people like her.
hell yeah!! she has a.awesome.attitude and.also a up beat energy.
Definitely.
Yes, I would recommend her class to other students. Professor Shook provided a good environment for her students to learn in. She uses case studies related to the chapters that are being discussed about in class. These case studies help you understand the chapter better and it gives us a chance to work on our critical thinking skills. She provides a mini lesson after giving us time to work on the case studies. During her lessons, she gives us a brief summary about the chapter being taught of the week and she goes over some things clearly and thoroughly if she feels like it is something we all should spend more time on.
yes i would because she is very knowledgeable. She really knows her stuff and if she doesnt know the answer she will research it and let you know
Yes
yes, she is very knowledgeable about the subject
YES, because she is an amazing teacher that you could learn a lot from. She introduces new learning techniques that help students learn how to study efficiently and effectively.
She is an outstanding teacher. She is very knowledgeable in her area.
Yes I would, she is an awesome teacher
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
One word pretty much sums it up AWESOME!
always seemed to be in a good mood.
She is one of the best, if not the best, teacher I've come across.
none
she is an awesome teacher and im glad that i took her class
Awesome teacher
SHE IS AMAZING.
18. Other comments:
Very thankful to be taking such a crucial course like physiology from an effective teacher like her.
I had a wonderful semester in your class!
she actually cares for the well being of her students beyond academics and it shows in her teachings. Great teacher!

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She is super educated. Really knows and understands her material. Is a great teacher who is always concerned about the students success. Very kind woman.
Sheryl would give us advice for her class such as study strategies and how to create study habits. Also during lecture she would make us draw figures; she understands that looking at words all day wont interest us when it comes to studying for exams. She noticed that through her past years students were able to memorize the picture she drew during lecture rather than her study notes. For me i thought her study notes and her drawings were perfect during the test because i could picture in my head the notes or the drawings to help be think harder and eventually map out my answer in my head.
Sheryl is happy to explain concepts again when we don't understand them and finds ways to make the material engaging. She makes it a point to grade us fairly and to inform us promptly of our grades. Also, she is very personable and shows great concern and care for all her students.
She is extremely passionate about what she is teaching. She wants her students to understand the material and is willing to help in any way to facilitate that.
Sheryl was very helpful if there was a subject you didn't understand and she would explain it throughly. She made class fun by showing animations on the projector about the lesson we were learning and she wasn't shy about talking about her personal life and adventures.
Makes use of a broad range of materials and presents for different learning styles. Makes an attempt to make the material relevant, engaging. Finds ways to present complex concepts with clarity. Offers several ways to succeed in the class. Her expansive view of the educational process allows students to benefit from outside sources of learning. That makes for broader engagement by students and memorable experiences. She truly represents the best qualities of a teacher.
She really does care for the well-being and success of her students. She always broke things down for us to understand and her grading is THE BEST EVER. She understands that we all have lives outside of school, and is very lenient when work is late or a student is absent. Sheryl is very fair and very caring of her students. I absolutely love her and the way she teaches!
One of professor Shook's major strengths was her style of lecturing. I really like how she lectures by always drawing the pathways of what were learning in each chapter since Zool 142 is most likely about physiology.
She's always willing to listen and help us in whatever way to help improve on our exam scores. She's really organized and will always make time for us when we need help or didn't understand the subject. She always goes above and beyond for her students. She's very understand and flexible . She' know her subject very well. She's cares for her students. She's one of the best professor's i've ever had. The way she tough our class helps us learn, think, and understand the subject very well. I love how she has the collaboration online its like a lecture online where i can replay it as many times as I want to help me understand the topic. The structure she teaches helps me understand so easily coming from a background with zero knowledge in this subject.
She is one of the best professors I came across at KCC. Mrs Shook explains details well in her lectures. She goes beyond by making short videos, extra resources in laulima to help with our studies.
Very clear and wants us to learn.
She know the subject well and I liked how she had outlines because the book was very informative, but she stuck to certain things more.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
no
Sometimes the due dates were not clear. I think it would have been more helpful if the due dates were on the unit check lists. Also I thought her collaborate sessions were great and I probably would have benefitted from more of those.
No changes, I'm fine with what she has going as a teacher.
Maybe on the first day show the laulima page, and Wileyplus on a wall projector to demonstrate all the resources and where assignments are found. Some students had not seen some of the things there. I had taken Hybrid 141, but for others, it was a lot to take in. Just, personally, I don't like "outline speak"...While its nice to have notes to identify the "take-away" information, I prefer notes in sentence form.
None.
One change would be to kind of adjust her deadlines with the assignments and also the exams.

15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She is very flexible.
She was really fast with emailing and she wasn't afraid to answer any questions. She also enjoys being stopped during her lectures to answer any question we have for her. She likes to make sure that every student is on the right tract and makes sure that each student has the ability to understand and relate to each concept of the book.
She is always accessible after class to answer our questions. She is very understanding and sympathetic when we need help and tries to accommodate us to the best of her ability.
She was available after class for questions. She also replied very promptly to questions and concerns via email. And during lecture she frequently asked if there were any confusions about the material.
She would ask questions after she spoke about her lesson for the day to see if we understand the lesson she taught about. Sheryl would always reminds us whats the due dates of our assignments and give us helpful hints on upcoming exams.
Constantly: by listening, being accessible, demonstrating empathy. She is very inclusive, making an effort to reach out to each student and encouraging interactions among classmates.
She always vibes out the class and notices if we need a break, or we are getting an overload of information. She allows us to take breaks in the middle of class and she stops if she things our mind is just wandering. The way she grades is very fair for every students circumstances as well. My Grandma passed away this semester and she extended my exams. She's just so nice, and so caring.
Whenever a student was struggling especially with their grades for an exam or their overall grades, she helps them by telling her students ways on improving
she take the time to talk to her students. She replies her emails really fast. She always stays after class to answer any questions or concerns for us. She's easy to talk to.
She makes herself available after class for students in need of help. She is easy to get in contact through email, she responds in an efficient manner.
Provided us with office hours or time after class if needed.
She responded quickly to emails and always open to help.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes!!
yes, she's perfect. she gives you advice about school, her advice about how to study also helped me succeed in my other classes as well. she is also great and explain certain concepts because she gives us examples that help us understand the subject very well. I really enjoyed the fact that she is very bubbly, so she doesn't sound like a boring monotone teacher just trying to get through work. I can tell she enjoys the subject she teaches and watching her student achieve.
Absolutely, for all the above reasons. This semester would have been much less pleasant had I not chosen to take Sheryl's class.
I would recommend her to students that want to learn. She is not an easy A, she will make you work for your grade but does offer extra credit and curves the exam scores, which is extremely helpful.
Yes, i recommend her to students because she has that natural way of teaching that makes students hooked on her and makes the student learned more and more.
Yes. One of our best instructors.
Heck yes, I would definitely recommend her to students! She's just Superwoman! She's smart, funny, and very caring!
I would definitely recommend professor Patz, because even though it is a hybrid class, you can really learn and understand the concepts by the way this class is fully set up. Sometimes it can be good to learn things on your own because it helps you gain experience of being independent and learning things by yourself.
Yes, because she is very knowledgeable about her subject and explains things very clearly so you could understand.
I would highly recommend her classes to students who really wants to learn in Zool lecture.
Yes I would recommend her because she knew the subject and was willing to help in any way necessary.
Yes because she's very organized and she knew her subject well.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
PERFECT
I love her enthusiasm and spunk. Her class was fun and I learned a lot over this past semester. Mahlo!
She is a well rounded person who is nice and very helpful if you need help understanding her lessons.
Mahalo, for the class, and for your many kindnesses, personally.
I just would like to thank professor Patz for a great semester, I may have not fulfill my major goal of this class (to get an A grade), but hopefully if I do good in the final my second goal (to get a better grade from my first attempt for this class)
You're the best! You've made me want to try and learn more about the medical field.. You've inspire me to never give up. I wish all of my professors in the future are just like you very easy going, understanding, caring, supportive, and smart. Thank you for all you've done.
She is very understanding and have great compassion for her students. She is the greatest.....

I really enjoy the hybrid class. It made it easier for me this semester to study online and have one class day. I saved time and allowed me to studying online more.

15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
she always takes extra time to explain and go over the topic if we don't understand or she will give us good examples or give us pointers to remember it.
She puts all kinds of efforts to help her students.
She sent all of the exams to the windward community college testing center so I didn't have to drive from my house on the windward side all the way to kcc on exam days. She took the time to learn each of our names from the very first day of class even though we only met once a week.
Always available to discuss any problems we had with the subject.

Yes, because the person she is and how caring she is towards her students.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Her calm, loving, and intelligent personality makes her a great teacher. She creates this relaxed environment where students are not afraid to make mistakes, and encourages people to think for themselves. She also is creative and makes the class as engaging as possible while still being good at time management and still have time for breaks mid class!
She caters to her students and is very passionate about teaching. She is committed to making sure her students are understanding the material.
Sheryl is a kind, passionate and highly enthusiastic teacher that cares about her job and success of her students.
Her knowledge and helpfulness.
Professor Shook was able to relate to students, making them feel comfortable enough to open up and ask questions in class. She also listened to students and was able to be flexible in her course schedule.
Offers plenty of help, much resources, great office hours, and is super fun!
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
I think she might want to change her due dates. Instead of saying that a test is due the morning before we met for class, I think it would have been better to move the due date/time to latest time someone could possible take the test at the testing center. I also feel that homework assignments that are due in the afternoon/morning should actually be due 11:59 pm the night before. I think most students look at what day something is due and assume they have that day to work on it- which would not work out so well for some assignments...However, this is not necessary because it teaches attention to detail, and responsibility.
None!
NOTHING, your the best teacher I've had by far.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
When students asked for extensions on things she would actually consider the circumstances before giving an answer. She always answers emails, and makes time for her students. Also she just has a caring personality that is very understanding.
It was very easy to communicate with Professor Shook. She also replied to any emails immediately.
She offered to stay late after class to answer questions. She was very prompted in returning emails.
Professor Shook took the first few minutes of each class period to go over what students missed on the case studies. She also took the time to look over previous courses and see general areas that students missed, making sure to cover them in greater detail during class.
Shes the most caring teachers who offers sooo much help. Hands down the best A and P teacher/ regular teacher at KCC!!
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes, I learned a lot from her class. I put in a lot of work for the class, but it all seemed fair and achievable.
Absolutely, I had so much fun in the class and I turned a lot.
Absolutely I would recommend Sheryl to other students. Her teaching style is very effective and she cares about her students and is willing to help you achieve your goals in class.
Yes because she knows what she is teaching and always wants to help you out when you need it.
I would recommend professor Shook to students because she is able to present A&P in a knowledgable way, engaging students and promoting them to want to learn more.
Yes, because she makes learning fun and she has such a great enthusiasm to teach. She wants her students to pass and she shows it everyday. Never a dull moment with her.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Sheryl Shook is an amazing person, and educator and this school is lucky to have her.
One of the best professors I've ever had in my college career.
Thanks for a great summer session, I really enjoyed your classes and getting to know you! :)
She is the best teacher I had hands down!!
Thank you for blessing us with your awesome teaching skills and techniques. Really transformed my study habits and provided me with such a great/fun A and P course.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She explains the lab before actually doing the lab and she tells us what will be I. The exams so there are no surprises.
Her knowledge and doing things in an effective manner
Her teaching technique
Sheryl is a kind, enthusiastic, and caring teacher. She is passionate about her job and about her students.
She has an amazing energy and is really concerned with the students ability to learn the material and learn the material well. She makes learning the subject matter interesting and fun. I liked that she did the mini lectures before the lab so that we have a better understanding of the material.
Made the material easy to understand
She is very passionate about teaching and always encourages everyone to do the best they can. She is also very knowledgeable in her subject. Responses to e-mails are also very prompt and clarification on any questions are also answered right away.
OMG Professor Shook is the most bomb teacher ever! She lays everything out for you, makes learning fun, and teaches in a way where concepts are easily understandable. Best A and P teacher by far.
Invovled and caring about teaching students the material. Takes it upon herself if students score poorly.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Nothing, Her class assignments, tests, and activities are very rewarding
The wiley plus assignments were a bit much. I didn't like that it took so long just to fill out the questions. Watching the animations did help though.
None, she is a great teacher.
No changes, the class is taught well.
None.
NOTHING, you are da beez neez!
Perhaps giving students too many chances as she is very understanding. Some took advantage of it, I think. But at least she doesnt let the few spread to how she feels about the others.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She wanted everyone to pass and was concerned when students were absent.
She would stay late after class to answer any questions, return emails promptly, if she didn't know an answer about something, she would email yoou or let you know next class meeting.
She took the time to answer all of our questions in and outside of class. She also made sure that if she mentioned something that was incorrect in class that everyone knew the correction. She also consistently asked if we understood the material and asked for feedback.
She made sure students understand the concepts by thoroughly explaining it
She will always answer questions in class, go over anything that is not clear, and is always open for 1 on 1 interaction for any other clarifications.
Always available for students, quick with emails, and offers wide open office hours.
took time to meet every single student that wanted to sit and reveiw the material with her on the test. Always followed up a students question many times even when the asker forgot they asked themselves.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes she is a great teacher who makes the class fun and easy to learn
Yes because she knows the material and is very helpful.
Absolutely, I would recommend Sheryl to other students. A&P II is general is a hard class, but she presents the material in a way that makes you want to learn as much as you can.
Totally! Her teaching style ROCKS!!!! She is not only very clear on the subject, but she teaches it in a understandable fashion.
Yes, because she is a very knowledgeable teacher that has a great personality and ability to pass along the information to the students.
Yes, she is very good at explaining and teaching difficult concepts.
Yes because she is an excellent instructor who cares about her students and makes the course easy with clear objectives and goals.
YES! she's just the coolest, and teaches in a way where complex concepts can easily be learned. Obviously you need to study, but she is generous with help, questions, and advice.
Very highly, because she cares about teaching AND that the students understand the material. Looks at it from a teacher centric view in that if they arent getting good grades, she is at fault not the student. Of course this means that all students are trying their hardest which I know for a fact is not the case, in my study group anyway. Some of that lackadasical attitude was due to her generosity with points.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Love love her class! Although it is challenging, shes an awesome understanding teacher! -amanda c
Thanks Sheryl for an awesome summer session, I greatly enjoyed your class and getting to know you. :)
Very good and knowledgeable instructor.
Excellent instructor. I wish she could teach every class I take.
Dont ever change!
Caring individual who truly cares about human beings first and enjoys playing a role in our academic development.

I like how you let us question medical techniques to more natural techniques. I would actually like to learn more about that :)
Highly enjoyed the class, even though I didnt do as well as I'd like, I put that squarely on me though.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Her background in the medical field makes it a big difference,she applies what she experienced in class to make it more undestandable.
Overall knowledge of the subject area and hands on experience in the field.
Her work experience before she was a teacher help make this class real. And her personality makes you feel comfortable to participate in class and express different reasonings for things that are outside of the text.
She is very encouraging. She wants us to learn and be able to apply what we learn to everyday life. She is humorous and it makes the class fun. She is very enthusiastic about what she teaches.
Lively lectures. Tone for the class is upbeat and kept students engaged. She takes time to explain concepts and answer questons. The course content covered a broad range. It was both challenging and interesting.
Giving us knowledge and feedback on everything we needed to know and had good organization skills for the class!
she is very encouraging and very helpful. i wish i was a better test taker so my grades reflected how much i learned from her. i think that she has helped me because i wont just try to get the grade, i'll try to understand why and everything.
Easy to Talk to, Very Intuitive, A kind heart, out of all the teachers I had That were female she would be the best out of the three. I bring up gender because A majority of My teachers are male.
Mrs. Shook knows her material very well and is very good at explaining the materials in different ways to make sure everyone is grasping the concept. Her ability to explain things helps a lot for students who haven't had a science related class in a long time, and helps them get back in the swing of things. She can tell when students are not understanding a topic and doesn't have a problem explaining it again and answering students questions.
she can simplify a complex idea so everyone can understand it
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
I wish she can adjust the meeting hours and days for science of sleep class, for future students who are interested in taking the class.
It is a strength of hers that she encourages class participation, however I personally got turned off by a few students who spoke about things that didn't necessarily pertain to the lecture. I realize that the dynamics of the class changes every semester, but if there are students who want to have discussions with her, then maybe they could do it after class, because I really wanted to hear her lectures. I felt that sometimes she may have rushed some lectures, because it is only a 50 min class and some students took up valuable time talking about other things.
I have come to dislike outline style of notes. I found it difficult to fill in needed detail, or to locate facts that I missed. I need repetition, and often the material was hit or miss one shot. How about creating a small text for the class?
None!
present an actual hard copy of a study guide. trying to remember everything from the notes is stressful and very frustrating when i remember the stories more than the other information.
No complaints About her.
science of sleep was too easy
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She always take time to answers all our concerns and questions
She shows a genuine concern for students because she really wants every student to succeed. She does this by informing everyone when things are due, she has mini-quizzes to try to teach students to study throughout the semester instead of cramming, and she gives ample opportunities to earn extra credit. When students are irresponsible and miss tests and homework assignments, she tries to work with them to get them on track. She always stays after class and talks with any student that has a concern. She also has office hours, but makes herself available at other times or by phone or email.
She is always tuning in to the class, and responding to student needs.
By getting students involved in class dicussions and helping us now what to study for the exams.
she would offer as many opportunities and she was very flexible when it came to absences and understanding.
After every class session She takes the time to Remain patient and hear what every student's concerns are. SHE DOES THAT EVERY DAY AFTER CLASS.
Mrs. Shook often asked students if things made sense. It sounds like something really small but it made the biggest difference for me in class because if I didn't understand a concept I was comfortable saying that I didn't understand and I knew she wouldn't have a problem explaining it to me. She told students her office hours and encouraged them to visit her during those hours to discuss any issues we were having with the material and even gave study tips.
Never discrediting an idea
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Highly recommended!
Absolutely! Knows her stuff and the subject matter is so relevant to anyone's life as well as my major. Very interesting class.
Yes, see responses above.
Yes. You can expect an interesting class, full of good, relevant information.
Yes Because she is a very good teacher that knows the course well and also she is one the most funest and great teachers to have!
HECK YES! she is so helpful and easy to stay awake during a science of SLEEP class!
Yes, Because she is really rational.
I recommend Mrs. Shook to any student who asks for an idea of a class to take. Many students didn't know we offered something in science that would interest them like the science of sleep, but I'm glad word is finally getting out about her class. The class is interesting and she is very passionate about it and that comes across while she is teaching.
Yes. She is down to earth and treats her students with respect.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She's compassionate and really knows her subject :)
Enjoyed this class to the fullest.
She is an awesome teacher and an awesome person.
I did not care for the online book. I found the graphics on it really annoying...brown ink overlying brown "wallpaper". I would have prefered a series of articles to read on the topics covered.
Shes Awesome!!
i wish she would teach more classes in different areas.
She should be given the opportunity her own Class Dedicated to Neuro Science there should be a major dedicated in her honor.
Mrs. Shook was a fabulous teacher. She cares so deeply for her students and has such a passion for her classes that it's really encouraging for students to see.
18. Other comments:
I hope to have more professors like her to help students achieve their goals
Thanks for a great class!
CURVE all the EXAMS!!!
I WISH HER THE BEST LIFE and SHE NEEDS MORE RECOGNITION AND FAME!
I'm not sure what I learned in this class and if it will be helpful to my future.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Most awesome teacher!!!! love her energy and passion or the material. great teaching style and really got me to think about things and really got me to learn about how our bodies work. she is just the best teacher!!!!!!
This teacher is amazing. All the strengths u can find in what a teacher is suppose to be, she has it. Probably the best teacher I've ever had so far. If anyone can teach a difficult subject in a clear way, is an amazing teacher. Not only that but she has the experience and degree to back it up. She is very knowledgeable about the subject.
attracts attention and keeps the students attention. very helpful and willing to help in anyway for her students.
A very charismatic person. Willing to help. Spoke in a language that everyone could understand.
Well organized class knew material and was able to expand off the book when asked random questions
I really felt that Prof. Shook was more concerned with us understanding the material instead of just 'teaching to the test.' She's put in a lot of time to make a custom course that was very effective for me personally. I really like the format she teaches in because all the assignments and quizzes keep me on track. Her lectures are great because she makes the most of the limited time by focusing on the more difficult concepts and it's always an open atmosphere where the students feel comfortable asking for clarification.
She rocks! she is very knowledgable and kind. she shows compassion for her field and students
She explained her goal for the students thoroughly in class and in the assignments.
Sheryl is such a nice and kind person who makes teaching fun, interesting, innovative, and just a good place for all students.
Everything. She's kind, helpful, knowledgeable, fair, ect. Sheryl is an awesome lady. Two thumbs up, way up!
She is cool.
She is a great communicator and knew her subject very well.
Her niceness and availability to the students. She would go out of her way to help us.
Sheryl presented the material in a clear and effective way where her students can best understand the material.
Super Friendly, Super Organized, Super Knowledgeable about subject Matter
Super informational and fun!
It is her dedication in helping her students understand the material.
She was always so exciting to teach, and encouraged us to ask for help if we needed to. She knew the subject well!
She uses projects to help students understand the material. She also uses diagrams and pictures and even you tube to get the information across.
Very encouraging and engaging. She has our schedule planned out from the very beginning. We knew exactly when things were due and how much they were worth. She made sure we understood the material and always suggested seeing her after class or another time if we needed clarification.
Sheryl is very approachable, nice, and extremely knowledgeable. The PBL teaching style was very unique and it helped us to learn the material better, applying it to situations we may encounter later in our lives. It taught us how to approach a problem and find out how to solve it. The assignments were lots of hard work, but it also was a great tool in helping us understand the material better. I feel more confident in Zoology and willing to further my studies rather intimidated by its complexity.
Shook is upbeat. Her teaching skills are amazing. She likes to draw a visual image of concepts which really helps me understand much better.
The encouragement to think for myself!
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Her collaborate lecture online was amazing. However, some students need more explanation like me. I mean I like her lecture, but the collaborate was very helpful because i could replay it back over and over again until i got the material. So my suggestion is that maybe she can do more collaborate. Her class should be more like ask questions or discussions or maybe debate would be fun.
study guides instead of just giving us the lecture notes
None
can't think of any
Take away all of those slides
I would suggest, she stay on one topic and not often say, "let me not go in depth in to this because its on the collaborative or we will discuss about it next week" because it confuses other students and myself.
Absolutely nothing, she's seriously perfect!
None.
I would suggest a more reliable office for her office hours. It was awkward sharing your concerns with students waiting for the next class in the same room.
HOLY COW the exams were hard. The curve is the only way I am doing well in this class.
None
None she's the best
None.
None. She is an awesome instructor :-)
Maybe have another day of lecture so we would have enough time to thoroughly go through the case study and get ample time for lecture.
There are no changes. I enjoyed the hybrid class.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She's very approachable and mellow. She's very empathetic towards her students. She offered to let us talk to her about our career choices so she can give us advice because she has tremendous experience. she let's her students know she's available outside of class for help. she gave us breaks in class. she allows us to eat in class. her classroom feels more like a home type of environment.
She took her time to teach and wanted to teach so that every single one of her students understood the material.
Helpful energetic teaches well!!
Prof. Shook was always available after class to go over any questions I had or to review tests. Whenever we worked in groups she'd go around and talk with each group personally to see if they needed help, if there was anything they didn't understand. I really really feel that Prof. Shook cares about her students and wants them to succeed in her class.
she was available at any time, she wanted to help the students learn.
She replied immediately to any questions that the students had. And she understood, if your sick, she wouldn't want to you to come.
Always asks if students need help and keeps in close contact.
She is always there to answer questions and push you along.
Availability.
She e-mailed students who weren't doing so well in her class and asked them about their progress. She also had one on one sessions with students in which she asked what was going on in our lives and gave us opportunities to redo our mistakes.
Genuine concern and caring for students Sent sick student home and explained how they could make assignment up next time.
She encourages students to come see her when needed.
She answered emails, stayed after class for questions
She is available after class to help the students. She takes the time to discuss any concerns.
Always making sure we understood the material and telling us to come see her if we didn't.
She was available through email and always willing to listen to our concerns after class or during office hours. She seemed empathetic and understood what we as students were probably going through. She would make accommodations to help us out when needed.
She answers any questions during and after class. Or during her office hours.
She was available via after class or email.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes because she's amazing
YEAH! tries to make the material understandable for her students and relates it to us so we can understand and have a better chance of using the material in the real world.
YES! Super fun and easy class. Hybrid class that was to my advantage. Love the case studies.
Yes absolutely see above
Absolutely, this course was wonderful and I enjoyed taking it! I've taken a ZOO lecture with another professor that I felt was just awful - it was just straight out of the book lecturing for an hour and a half. Prof. Shook's class is NOT like that at all! It's very interactive and engaging - I absolutely recommend this class.
YES!! She is awesome and this class was great
Yes I would, because her teaching is straight to the point and exactly what you expect in the tests. She makes you learn on your own and with a group to find a diagnosis for each case study she assigned.
OF COURSE! She's everything a student could ask for.
Yes. She's awesome and it is not often that you get a teacher that is so charismatic. She's a good, good teacher.
Yes. She is cool.
Yes. She is an outstanding professor that shows great concern for her students and is very caring for other people as well. She is also very enthusiastic in teaching the subject.
YES. She is fun and interesting and a GREAT teacher.
Yes I would because she's a teacher who knows her material well and makes the course easier to understand.
I will sing her praises from the roof tops of KCC. Definitely Yes
Of course!
Yes! Challenging, but one learns a lot from her
YES! I loved her class! She was very fun to learn from and unlike other classes, I enjoyed her class and wanted to go to class!
yes, to students that are self motivated and able to learn fast. If you are a slower learner, take a 3 day a week class with someone else.
Absolutely! She makes the classes interesting. She breaks everything down so it's easier to understand. Detailed schedule and always willing to help if we have any difficulties.
yes, she's an excellent teacher. She really knew her stuff, was clear in her directions and explanations, open to questions, and listened to concerns. She knew how to create a safe and comfortable learning environment and supported us through out the semester.
Yes. Shes a great sweet caring teacher. She drives me to want to learn.
Yes if they can handle the hybrid technique of studying. It's alot of learning things on your own and understanding the concept.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
she is not only intelligent but she's funny and creative and she looks good for a teacher.
She was a joy to have, she has a wonderful personality, she's such a sweet person and excellent teacher and I hope she has a great summer :)
She is by far one of the top two teachers on my list. She is so kind and friendly and a joy to be around
She's fun, but as usual when it comes to lecture, it does make you fall asleep. It happens though.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
Cool teacher.
She is a great professor. Not only is she caring, she takes her time to teach difficult subjects in a layman's term. She is also great in communicating through email and responds promptly.
She is someone you would love to have as a friend.
Great job! I respect her passion in helping students succeed.
She is very mellow. Doesn't get angry or upset very easily.
I wish more teacher were like you :-)
Excellent teacher.
I enjoyed your class & I hope the best for you. Your such a sweet teacher :)
She knows the subject very well and show enthusiasm of the subject.

Wish her class was longer. An hour and fifteen minutes one time a week is not enough time. It should be a 2 hour class.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
her knowledge and kindness
She knew the subject well and was able to convey the material in an understandable way to all of her students. She made the material seem fun and interesting which then encouraged the students to engage and desire to learn more about the subject being taught. She also showed genuine concern for all of her students and wanted them to really understand the material.
If you have any problems, she is right there to help. she doesn't make you feel like your stupid.
Very nice to students. Always thorough. Knows her subject area very well.
She quickly responded to any questions you had.
helps students out any way possible. shows concerns for her students. very passionate teacher
Being friendly and professional. She doesnt waste anyones time.
helpful during experiments and willing to explain in greater detail
Sheryl Shook's major strengths as a teacher are: -Knowledgeable about this subject -good communication with the students
She is very friendly, easy going and approachable. She explains concepts and assignments thoroughly and is available when the students need her. She is also understanding and very helpful.
Enthusiastic; Knows subject very well and knows how to teach subject in a way that is easy to understand.
Able to relate and understand her students, and communicating the material effectively.
From what I have seen she is well organized. She has a tablet she carries with her to class. From time to time I would see her writing during our lab. Because of this I can tell that she is continually monitoring herself and her class as an instructor. To me this is her greatest strength. Her awareness. One thing that always irritates me is when instructors take longer than 48 hours to respond to emails. This was not a problem with Sheryl Shook. She answered my emails very quickly. Sometimes within a couple of hours. So her communication was a strength.
Sheryl's major strengths as a teacher would be that she knows her material very well and she gets along with the students on a personal level as well as professional.
Always willing to stay after class or make an appointment with students who need extra help. Makes the classes interesting and worth learning.
An overall great teacher. She knew what she was teaching!
Organized, excellent communication skills, friendly
BEST teacher ever. Really concerned with her students in an academic setting but also for their personal well being in the most appropriate way. She makes the concepts so understandable and is willing to help until every student understands.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
get rid of the slides
No changes.
Nothing.
actual study guide extra study session to offer help before the exams CURVE exams
Nothing.
None! Love her!
None at the moment.
Honestly, nothing.
No changes.
None. She has an awesome teaching plan.
I would like it if KCC got rid of using real animal dissection and went to using models or 3D computer model dissection so that innocent animals wouldn't have to die in the name of science anymore when there are very suitable alternatives available.
No changes at all, everything was such a blessing.
NONE!!!
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
she was available at any given time, and wanted to truly help us understand the material if we didn't
She always asked if anyone needed any further clarification on an experiment or a lecture she had given and was more than willing to stop the class to explain. She replied to emails regarding questions and concerns over her class very quickly--most often that same day!
She visits everyone during procedures to verify they understand.
Push students to study hard to make sure they understand the course.
As a pregnant student, for certain lab activities she made do an alternative assignment that wouldn't harm me because of the chemicals and smell that I may intake.
she emailed really quick and always answered all our questions
E-mails, test material, proper guidance, and etc. She is fantastic
Sheryl Shook show concern for students by always willing to help them.
She would ask for feedback and quiz us so that we understood all that was being covered. She also let us know what was going to be on exams so that we were able to study efficiently. She always made herself available to students.
Does her best to make sure students are on the same page, answers all questions to best of her ability, is patient.
Always offered her help.
She made sure to answer all questions with clarity and ensure we understood the answers. During lab she was focused on safety including proper handling of materials and clean up. She prepared and delivered highly efficient instruction. She made it a point to notify us of things that are important to know for future reference, especially in related fields. I feel all of these things showed her concern for students and a degree of passion for instruction.
She is always available to the students before and after class and she also responds to emails quickly.
Always willing to stay later and quick to respond to emails. Goes over materials in class repeatedly when students ask her to and always asking if we need clarification.
She took latework and encourages us with kind words.
Yes
She makes all concepts understandable and is willing to help everyone until they understand. She is patient and kind and just the best teacher I have ever had in many years of school. She is always available on email or flexible to meet when needed to help everyone.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
YES! She is great, knowledgable, helpful and kind
I would definitely recommend Dr. Shook to students because not only will they learn a lot about anatomy and physiology, but they will be in an environment that is exciting and engaging and promotes there learning.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She gets the students to be interactive, always fair, makes things straightforward, and can relate to us students.
Professor Shook made sure that we understood the material that she was teaching unlike many other science classes.
Knowledgeable, considerate, fair, understanding, passionate, encouraging.
She is a very driven teacher that inspires the class and gets us to do our very best.
She is very nice and patient with all the students. She stays after class if anyone has questions and is very good at making examples that help to remember the material in class. She is very easy to get along with!!
She's good at keeping students involved during the lecture. Like it's not just her talking and writing stuff on the board, but she has random points in the lecture where we would have to discuss a question with a classmate or something. Then she would randomly call on someone, this made it so that we can't sleep in this class even though it's called The Science of Sleep. I also like that she is flexible and gives us 3 days to take the exam, some test I am ready for and some I need more time so it's good to have a window of days to take it.
Shook as a teacher has notes pre-worked for you before you come to class so when you begin you feel really and not stressed that you wont be able to keep up with her lecture. She also allows time for you to ask lots of questions and she encourages lots of class participation.
She is great at explaining her lessons in a simplistic language while still withholding the important facts and she also encourages her students to perform critical thinking.
she knew the subject very well! she also has a great and caring personality.
teaching, explaining, tutorial
She knows material and engages the entire class to partcipate in discussion. She is kind and really cares about each student. She also makes learning the material easy with fillable notes.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Nothing much, it's a great class.
Her not having her back injuries. Strong woman!
none
I wouldn't want her to change at all!! :)
No changes. Even though sometimes she had to cancel class, it was still a very productive class, with videos and online assignments that we can do. Maybe if it's possible make the class longer so that future students can learn more things about sleep because it's so very interesting!
none.
None.
we should have a review day before exams instead of just one student or few students staying back to ask questions because the questions they asked can be the other students who already left for their next class' questions. :(
none at all!
no need, all good
None.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She won't try to rush the material into our heads and tries to makes things as easy to understand as possible.
Also responded in a timely manner, gave many opportunies for discussions during class, always willing to stay after class for help, always gave out reminders for anything upcoming.
She would ask if there are any questions as well as emphasize that her help is always readily available.
She made sure everyone understood the material before moving on to the next lesson. If we had questions she would answer them with more depth. Also if we needed to miss class she would email us back to let us know what we missed.
She showed her concern by giving us extra credit quizzes on laulima to help us study for the exams. She also was very helpful when class was done by staying a little after to explain things more if we had questions.
She was very caring for other students but what really made it helpful and encouraging is that, Sheryl came to class and gave her best despite a spinal injury. You could tell she was in pain but she was very strong in letting her students know that she wouldn't give up on them. As a student i was encouraged to give my all and my best respect and attention to a teacher who is willing to go through so much trouble for me. On an academic note she responded very quickly to emails, sometimes in 15mins with a response. She was always willing to meet outside of class if needed. Much mahalo!
She always opens up her schedule to meet with her students and helps them work out their issues.
he lets us review our exam individual to see what questions we got wrong and what information we got wrong.
she provided us multiple extra credit opportunities!
give time to us,
She was available after class to discuss any questions or concerns we had. She was also very understanding about circumstances.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes, she is fun, energetic, and treats the class fair.
Most definitely. Her lectures are great to listen to and you learn a lot from it. There isn't much homework and the test is time-manageable and the project was fun to do.
Definitely. She is very knowledgable in the science of sleep field. Very enthusiastic and passionate. She is fair. Has great time management. Always gave in class and email reminders of anything upcoming.
Yes because she is a very fun interactive teacher that gets you involved.
I would definitely recommend her because she is the best health professor I had so far! She made learning very easy and fun! The class is very easy if you go to class and take notes because she basically tells you what you need to know for the test!
I would recommend her because it's an easy class as long as you come to class, pay attention, and do the few assignments that she assigns. It's also good that she presents the material in a way so that it's relevant to real life things and conditions. I would also recommend her for ZOOL classes because she gives extra credit and is good at explaining.
I would suggest a lot of students take her class because she is very educated on her material as a sleep studies teacher. She also encourages group studies, group participation, and allows you to speak your mind and give any outside input that you could.
Yes! She is an amazing teacher, who will make you curious about life and science, take her PHYL 160; it will open your mind!
yes she is super nice and very kind. he cares about her students privacy and gives us other ways to get our point on our homeworks. forexample when my laulima wasnt functioning well, she lets me directly emailing to her.
yes! she provided outline notes for each lesson and that was very beneficial in studying. I also liked the way she splits us up into different groups. I liked this because I got to make new friendships.
yes, the class is fun and i like the teacher
Most definitely because her classes are fun and educational.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I appreciate the fact that she taught this semester with her back injuries. She really loves her job.
Raise teacher salaries!
I am so thankful that I had her as a professor because she made the overall learning experience enjoyable.
Thank you Sheryl for being such an amazing teacher! Even though she had major back pain she endured the pain to help us get through the lesson. She thought of the student first! She is truly the most awesome teacher ever!
She is a very nice professor who is really open to her students. She is very helpful and makes the class go by very quickly.
She is very kind and wonderful teacher. I wish I took her class earlier in my college career, as I'm transferring to a university i will be looking for her courses to see if i could take another class of hers, even if it's just for an elective.
She is an amazing teacher, who taught all her PHYL 160 class how to sleep properly.
i really like how you teach. I may take your other class for next semester.
keep doing what you're doing!
she's a good teacher
Outstanding.
18. Other comments:
Great semester!
A awesome professor that enjoys her work.
Extra credit throughout the semester is very easy and the tests are fairly simple! easy A! :)
I liked the activities in class like the game days for points or extra credit. I also like that we talked about lots of sleep disorders and the poster session was very interesting to see what other people in our class found out. She is a good professor and human. Thank you! :D
Sometimes you move so fast that i cant catch up. I dont like how i went from an A to a C within two weeks. :(
thanks for everything! I looked forward to coming to class everyday!
Thanks for hard work

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
PASSIONATE ABOUT TEACHING!!
Sheryl's major strengths as a teacher was that she was able to present the material in a very simple and easy way for her students to understand. She also encouraged student participation during discussions and she was always in for her office hours to answer any questions. It was evident that she really cared about her students and their success in not only this course but in their later careers.
Dr. Shook knows the subject of anatomy and physiology very well.
She knows the course material a lot and she always has examples for us students so learning the material is easier
She relates to her students and gives real life scenarios to help students learn. I feel she is the only professor that I had that actually do this.
Well knowledged, makes learning fun, bonds with students.
She knew the subject well and related it to real life situations.
I would rate Mrs. Shook as one of my top 5 best instructors. She knows her subject area VERY well and she is very caring and understanding. She responds promptly to emails and is just overall a great teacher.
She is so nice & funny. She is also approachable and always wants you to ask her questions. If she doesn't know then she will find out for you.
She cares for the students, is willing to help and explain concepts if students do not understand. She is also willing to change her teaching methods/explanations of concepts to be more understandable to the class.
Providing examples of how material we were learning applied in life.
I have never met anyone like professor Shook before. She is the reason why I believe that KCC has the best professors! Her attitude is so infectious. She has a love for a&p (one of the most difficult subjects I have ever took). Yet she is able to break down the information to the level of a first-time learner.
Professor Shook really knows A&P very well. She was very organized and interesting. She like sharing her past experiences while somehow relating it to our lecture.
So caring of all her students and understanding of the challenges students face in juggling school, work and life. She was a person as opposed to a teacher that draws a diving line between instructor and student.
She is a great teacher. She really encourages you to think outside the box. She really challenges you to think about things instead of just trying to memorize answers. I have always had trouble understanding Anatomy and Physiology but I learned so much by being in her class. She helps you to see the bigger picture of why things happen.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
NOTHING, PERFECT TEACHER!!
Just more review during class and maybe add another class day so more can be done
I felt her exams were tricky and hard. If she makes it more outstanding it may be easier for her students.
None
None! I wish she had more courses to offer in different subjects!
I truly enjoyed every aspect of the class.
Professor Shook doesn't need to change because she was a great teacher!
No changes.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
ALWAYS THERE TO HELP!!!
Sheryl always asked after her lectures if any one needed any clarification on what she had just discussed. She also replied to every email with concern and did so within hours (at most a day).
She answered all our questions that may be course related or some other topic
She would encourage her students to ask her and come see her if we had any questions.
Bonds with students, responds to email, makes sure students understand.
She always took the time to answer everyone's questions. She was always willing to stay after class to answer anything that wasn't clear.
She called on people to answer questions during her lecture but DID NOT make you feel dumb if you didn't know the answer. She would help direct you to the answer. Also, she was accessible through email & is so courteous. She is so approachable and stays after class about an hour to answer any additional questions students may have or to give advice.
She was willing to listen to concerns about assignments and tests and she went over answers that I got wrong on tests to make sure I understood the concepts.
She wants the best for her students and was always there after class. She always made sure we knew that we could email her or see her if we had any concerns.
Extra Credit, the reminding/informing emails, her attitude
She really took the time to know her students and answer questions about all topics. Since many are going into the medical field she offered her own experiences to help guide us instead of using just the class material. Put it all in context.
She makes sure all her students understands what they are doing. She makes herself available if you have any questions or if you need help understanding anything.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
YES!!! HER PASSION RUBS OFF ON YOU!
I would recomend this class because it makes the student think outside the box.
Yes she is a great teacher and very thorough of what we need to know for a test or anything
Yes I would because she is a very supporting professor and her teaching style is different from any other. You can learn some things from her if you have some knowledge of this course.
Yes, cool teacher, fun, well knowledged, caring and helpful.
Yes. We learn so much during the semester but she covers the "more" important ones that we need to know.
Yes I would. Although Mrs. Shook's class isn't the easiest, as long as you study all her material and everything she says to study, you will do fine.
Of course! She makes a tough subject a little easier to learn. She has a lot of assignments but they are supplemental so that students really grasp the important factors of the subject.
Absolutely! She is a great teacher!
I learned a lot and it was relevant material. Professor Shook also is smart and has a lot of different experiences in the professional field, so is a good mentor for students.
Yes. I believe that Sheryl is one of those rare professors that make you feel comfortable in talking with. She breaks down the barrier of just teacher and student and comes to you as a friend. She is always available if you need extra help and she encourages students to have a successful study habit.
Of course i would because A&P is a very hard subject but with Professor Shook, i understood it a lot better.
YES! One of the best teaches I have had. She is fair and understanding. Knows the material and isn't afraid to be real with her students.
Yes I definitely would because she is a wonderful teacher. Anatomy and Physiology can be a challenging subject but the right teacher can help you understand the material and why things happen the way they do.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
ONE OF THE BEST TEACHERS I HAVE EVER HAD, BEST ONE I HAVE EVER HAD AT A CC.
Thank you for getting me excited to learn about anatomy and physiology and for making the material seem fun and easy!
Thank you. You helped me fill in some of the missing pieces that I had.
She is a great teacher she made class fun and easily understandable
She is nice and friendly, surely optimistic!
Awesome job.
Great teacher with a great personality.
I appreciate her kindness and sincerity to really let students understand the concepts of zoo 142.
Thank you for making this tough subject matter more manageable!
She was so positive and great. Such a kind spirited woman. I am taking this survey just so I can make sure she gets this feedback!!!!! :)
Professor Shook is one of the best teachers i have ever had. Most teachers are the type that gives that student the textbook and forces them to learn on their own, but Professor Shook has encouraged me and my classmates to actually understand the concept. I would definately want to take another class with her some other semester. I will miss her very much.
She is very down to earth. She is very funny and caring. She knows what she is doing when it comes to teaching. I wish she taught more classes because I would love to take more classes with her teaching.
