Thank you for your help!
N/A
She is a great teacher
None
I just want to say thank you to professor Kanae. She is the best at KCC.
Keep on doing what you are doing. You are an awesome professor.
Lisa is a relatable teacher. She knows what students go through and understands college life. Lisa knows her literatures and I could tell she is an english major.
Please don't change anything about your course as well as yourself. You are a wonderful professor, i mean that sincerely. Your relaxed style incorporated with a kind of strict edge (like turning in assignments on time, and follow according to a rubric) is what i would call a perfect teacher!
Mahalo!
She really can relate the topic at hand to something a student can relate to.
One of my favorite teachers at KCC.
