13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
fairness, accessibility and willingness to impart his experience
he is a really awesome teacher , knows how to explain and teach in a fun way .
1.Willingness to teach. 2.His personality(makes for a good teaching and learning environment) 3.His EMS stories that relate what we are doing. 3.Makes his students think. 4.Lets us experiments on most things first hand. 5.He likes getting feed back from us on things. 6.Will to learn from us.
I could tell from the first day that Mr. Caballero had a lot of experience with the subject material he taught. He showed a real interest in what he was teaching. The course he taught lasts is 7 hours long plus an hour lunch. During that time he keeps the students engaged.
Edward caballero or chicho's strength is that he gets a long well with the students and encourages learning. I never got to work with chico on the road but I enjoyed my time in EMT class. The instructors that were brought in to teach us skills were great and I learned a lot. Chicho is also very fair in his grading as we were allowed to argue certain test questions on how we perceived the questions when more than half the class got the question wrong.
as a teacher, Chico was willing to help us as students, he knew what he was doing and understood where we were coming from as students. He was very helpful and answered all questions that we had to ask.
His experience, ability to keep students interested, and overall ability to be a good and effective teacher.
Knew the subject area, plenty of experience, was a good teacher
Great attitude, good communicator, very helpful, knowledgeable, interesting, fun, and awesome.
Knew his field well
A great teacher who shows his experience.
I think Chico's greatest strength is that he made our learning experience very enjoyable. Chico taught us a lot of common sense and book knowledge. He taught us what the medics would expect from us and prepared us for the rough ride ahead. He would tell us what we should do everyday when we arrived at a station. Chico was setting us up for success in the best ways possible. Another one of Chico's many great traits is that he treats us with respect and does not speak down to us. If we ask a question that we don't understand, he will explain it until we do. He would never speak down on us because he is such a great mentor.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
none
I wish the class was 2 or 3 weeks longer. Keep all the course materialssame and go more into the EMT-Advance stuff more with extra time. I would liked to have gone over on how to do a PCR weeks before hitting the road. Hospital rotations could have been spreed out a bit more, to keep the load down on 6 hospital case study.
No changes necessary.
I would like to have chicho change the 2 weeks in the hospital because that reakky screwed me up on going back to the ambulance. Granted I did learn a lot in the hospital but trying to jam out 6 case studies right after the hospital was rough. The amount of time would be good for learning the basic skills but with the advanced EMT skills i think that there should be a few more weeks to really get a understanding of the skills and become proficient in them.
I liked the way that the course was set up
Diet and exercise
More practice with the actual ambulance, and pcr charting.
None, great job!
The only change I would recommend would be to allow future students more time to prepare for clinical rotations. maybe a week or two before the future student's rotations, teach them how to set up lines, get vitals with some pressure. Meaning have the students act like they were on a call and had to get all the medic's vitals as fast as possible.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He is always available when we call
1.accessible to students outside of class by Cell and Email 2.lets us stay late
He made himself available to students whenever he called. If a student were struggling with the course He would help coach the student back on the right track. He also informed us on our standings in the class and how wer could improve.
Could contact chicho any time by calling him on his phone or email.
by asking what we needed help with and personally talking with us to help us out.
He showed concern by always asking if we have question and being available to answer questions.
Was willing to meet during lunch,after class and would. He would come in on the weekends to open the classroom up, if emailed he was fast about getting back to you
He was always there when we needed help and made sure we understood the material.
Available to talk to 24/7
Always available when needed, even outside of class.
Chico would show concern by pulling his students aside if he thought they needed help. If we needed more help with a certain subject Chico would make time and help us be able to understand the subject better.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes. he has a deep understanding of the subject matter and is anxious to spend time with the students to help them understand the material.

Thank you very much Chico! Thank you for going out of your way to make sure we got to go on field trips. Letting us partake in activities like, ocean safety, MCI, half a beach day (taking BP's in Waikiki), bringing Hawaii Fire Over, Driver Training with Howard and his great jokes, and letting us experience AMR. I consider myself very fortunate. That I have been taught by such an experienced person like yourself. Thank you very much Chico! YOU DA BOMB MAN!

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Motivational, inspirational, good communicator, great instructor.
Good teacher went out of his way to teach.
Chico was a good teacher and was helpful. Chico was trying to raise the bar for us EMT interns by having us learn a lot of EMT-I skills as well as having a solid EMT B skills.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
He's perfect the way he is
Break up the rides longs between basic and advance.
Again the hospital rotation and then having to do the 6 case studies was murder. Also coming back from hospital to ambulance was a hard change because the equipment was so different and how they do things messed with my head a bit.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He patted me on the back
Being available 24/7
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes. He's a great instructor that will prepare you for a career in the emerrgency field.
Yes
Yes i would recommend students to chico because he is a good teacher and makes us think for ourselves a lot. But the EMT class is very demanding and sometimes students get overloaded on information. That's a good thing but its a challenge in the EMT class to understand a lot of the information presented all at once.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
He's AWESOME
Interesting stories
Please make the class a few weeks longer and chico you rock!
