13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Chico is a teacher who actually show he cares for his students. This is the first time i'v ever wanted to succeed in class because i didn't want to let my teacher down and i have been apart of the UH system for awhile. HE gets us ready for everything we need out on the road. Very well organized and his stories of his experiences out in the EMS world extremely help the learning in class. There is no one in my eyes that can teach or prepare the student for the EMS world like chico can.
Mr. Caballero's strengths as a teacher was knowing the material that was being taught very well. With a great background, and respect for what he does. Very Professional and caring for a students success and goals in life.
Everything was great! Chico was the best instructor I ever had!
One of Mr. Caballero's strongpoints was his ability to effectively encourage and conduct classroom participation and discussions during lectures. It was great how Mr. Caballero responded to student feedback during lectures with an open mind to really understand the students' thought processes. Examples of this would be acknowledging or validating feedback from the lectures and then encouraging the students to expand of that base of information. I think this was a good format because it built confidence by justifying any comments or questions the students may have had and then broadening that knowledge base. I also liked how the lectures were never based solely on PowerPoint presentations. Mr. Caballero provided other types of media in class such as informational videos, auditory samples (such as breath sounds), and best of all... his own personal experiences. Mr. Caballero did a great job of keeping the class on schedule with the lectures, and he allowed for adequate breaks. I've taken a few medical classes in the past at KCC, but with Mr. Caballero's teaching style I really felt like I was learning and absorbing the material. In prior medical classes I felt like I was given information to memorize. With Mr. Caballero as my instructor, I felt like I was able to comprehend more information because he went beyond just going over terms and conditions to really explain why it's important and how these systems work in the big picture. I like how he took all the topics and explained how we could use the information as professionals in the field of EMS. Because he explained the information in a way that made it seem relevant, I feel that the students were able to absorb and apply more of the information. I feel that Mr. Caballeroâ??s greatest strength as an instructor would be his wealth of personal experience. These experiences which he shares with the students really helps to make the lectures more interesting and really helps to increase my attention span throughout the very long days at school. Mr. Caballero was also very efficient at responding to email and questions outside of class. In most cases I received a response in less than 15 minutes. That was greatly appreciated.
Ambitious teacher knowledge on topics is incredible. Taught in a way i believe was very effective. Was always wiLling to help out if help was needed. Immediately responded back to any questions or concerns. Went over material as a class if something wsnt understood. Overall one of the best instructors i ever had in my life. What edward brings from new york is very crucial to the effectiveness of the kcc emt program!
Chico was able to give personal experiences to keep student interested during lecture. He also knew the material he was teaching extremely well and was a great teacher. Chico had the ability to keep my attention throughout all the long lectures and I was able to retain the material that was being taught which was a very hard thing for me to do before so in my opinion he did a very good job on that.
Edward Caballero Is a very knowledgable on subject matter. Very enthusiastic and very passionate about teaching.
He knew the material he was teaching very well. Also the stories were very entertaining.
He is a very knowledgable instructor who knows how to explain a complex topic very well.
she is very knowledgeable and encouraging, he also sets a good standard.
His enthusiasm that he passed on to his students which makes it easier for us to put our all into the material.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Better communications when it comes to skill testing/ practicing.
None
This skills instructor was hardly there to TEACH us. The skills instructor told us to study one thing for out tests and then changed it to another thing on the day of the skills testing. Made all look really bad.
I would recommend more classroom use of the ambulance AMR allowed KCC to utilize. This would include more training of taking vitals on a moving ambulance. More training of gurney operations with the actual ambulance would have been beneficial. I would have also liked a more formal training of writing patient care reports. I think a huge area of opportunity for improvement would involve the skills portion of the EMT program. Understandably, the are many ways to conduct a skill, and as professionals, we must learn to adapt to these different styles. I understand that the different methods to accomplish these skills most often end in with a consistent result. For the purpose of testing; however, I feel there should be ONE correct answer. We were often taught many different ways to accomplish a skill, and I appreciate everyone who came in to assist our class. I do feel that a proper academic method should be established and those who are evaluating those skills should be aware of this method. It is very discouraging to study and practice a skill countless times, then perform the skill exactly as it was taught only to find that we failed.
take out the vital signs skill sheet.
No changes needed.
Less papers. When we have papers that are assigned to us that are due the next day it takes away from time that we could be studying the course material.
I would suggest clarifying skills amongst preceptors and students. Probably dedicate the class to Monday-Friday, Monday-Thursday (didactic) Friday (skills).
More agreement and communication amongst all the instructors to reduce confusion for students.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Through out the semester Chico was an awesome teacher who at the end became like a brother to me. He really showed he cared for how we did and would go at extreme lengths to help us in class and in the field. Best teacher i've ever had. Best teacher who actually prepared us for the real world for the subject we were studying.
Being to class everyday, replying to emails in a timely manner and contact via phone if needed.
Mr. Caballero met with students on a one on one bases to discuss individual students performance. He was always available to assist and answer any questions we may have had; this includes offering his assistance on his days off. The EMT program at KCC is very intensive and demanding, and Mr. Caballero puts into the program the same amount of energy and time he himself expects from his students. He quickly identifies those students who may be falling behind, and he does his best to bring these students up to par, while making time for the students who may be more advanced to make sure they are challenged as well.
always went over exams as a class. pulled each student aside and gave a well organized and in depth explanation on our peogress and what might help improve our learning experiance
Chico made himself available for us to practice our skills outside of classtime and had a very flexible schedule. I really appreciated the effort he put into making sure he gave all of the student the best chance to succeed in this difficult course
He communicated well with student via email and made sure that student where given ample time to practice skills and ask any question. Made effort on his days off to open class room and answer questions.
Made himself available during and after school hours.
He showed great concern for student with quarterly assessments and reviews.
by being available and expressing his want to see all of us exceed.
Always willing to come in extra days to enable us to practice whenever we wanted to.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes. HE will drill you in class, make you study your life away and at times question why u even joined the program. But he only does this because he actually cares for his students. All this prepares us for the EMS job that we all want.
Yes. Very Informative in teaching.
YES!
I would definitely recommend Mr. Caballero to other students considering a career in EMS. I paid for my education with my own hard earned money, and I honestly feel like it was worth EVERY penny of it. I generally gage the amount value I gain from my academics from the amount of knowledge I feel I have gained at the end of the semester. To put it simply, with Mr. Caballeroâ??s teaching style... I get it! I understood the concepts! He teaches the material so that you LEARN the who, what, when, why, where, and howâ??s.
I highly recommended Edward as a teacher to any student. Despite having such an amazing knowlwdge in the field his teaching abilities and effective communication ability made my experiance one to never forget.
I would highly recommend Chico to any student interested in the EMT program at KCC because he was the best teacher I've had in my years in school. He didn't only say he was there to help up succeed, he actually showed it throughout the semester
I recommend Edward Caballero to students because he wants the students to succeed.
YES
Yes, I would suggest Chico to another student because he is enthusiactic and enjoys his job.
yes, this is one of the best emt programs.
Yes. You can tell he really does care and it's not just snob for him.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Chico don't change a thing about your teaching methods. I don't know how you do it but as the semester goes by you really send the message that you care for us like a brother. Mahalo for everything!!!
Honestly one of the best teachers I have had at KCC.
Thank You Chico!
Iâ??ll end with this, I remember one night I was studying at Starbucks and a City & County paramedic and EMT came in to buy themselves drinks. We sparked up a conversation, and we ended up talking about her experiences at EMT school. I asked her who her instructor was and she said VERY proudly, "Jeff Zuckernick". I could definitely see why she was proud to say that. I thought about how one day I would be a seasoned paramedic, and I might have a similar conversation with an aspiring EMT. I know for a fact that I will have that same proud tone, and I will be honored to say that that my instructor was CHICO! He is on his way to being one of the legends of EMS Hawaii.
Continue on with teaching and i would also advise him to look into counseling students as well. Very Analytical individual and a very hard working teacher as well as a partner when working out in the field.
I really appreciate all the work Chico put in to help our class succeed
Never a dull moment in class with Edward Caballero, very entertaining.
Good guy that guy.
Terrific job on teaching, I look forward to working with you in the near future.
Roger that
Can't wait to see you out there on the road!

Give this man a raise
thank you Chico for such an amazing experiance. Please do not retire and i hopw you receive recognition for your amazing talent!
take out the vital signs skill sheet. The LP12 skills sheet was very helpful on the road because that was majority of what we did during clinical rotations. gurney was fairly helpful but could be a little simpler. The didactic portion of this course was well organized.
Keep up the good work Chico!
Chico and the other instructors need to be on the same page. We constantly get conflicting orders on what to study and how to perform skills. It sucks when you practice a skill one way, and the day before testing be told that we have to do it another way.
more equipment, an ambulance to familiarize ourself before we go on the road with the city and county. More help with the skills, with trained instructors to thoroughly teach the students each skill. class was good

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Chico definitely knows his material and knows how to make the subject matter fun. He makes us think for ourselves and shows concern for our well-being.
He genuinely cares about his students. He doesn't make us feel like he's just doing this for a paycheck
He explained things really well and encouraged us to participate as much as possible.
Ed was a very enthusiastic teacher. Extremely knowledgeable and kept students interested.
Chicos strengths as a teacher are the knowledge he has attained about the subject. He is able to express and share the information in real life terms, where every student is able to understand it. In addition Chico is very personable, to a point where us the students were able to share any concerns, questions or almost about anything without effort or fear, as we would have with other teachers i have encountered in the past also he really cares for his students, he understands situations we may encounter throughout the whole program or as much as possible he attempts to understand, but with a joint effort with the student as well. These are all the fundamentals of what makes a great instructor/teacher/professor: Chico Loves what he does, wants his students to succeed, is understanding as long as you personally show and do that you are willing to address it, he makes the whole learning experience fun. Chico are just one of the several teachers i have had the honor of being there student. Chico defines what teachers everywhere should be, and lucky enough KCC was able to have him
Oh man. Edward, or Chico as he goes by, is an amazing instructor. He demonstrated incredible knowledge of the material and taught with kindness and compassion. He well understood the progression of knowledge the students would have throughout and was able to play to that aspect of our learning. He was funny, smart, and passionate about the topics in class and was able to provide incredible real-world applications of our book learning. I say this without hyperbole: Chico is an incredible asset to the KCC EMS team.
he made the course material easy to understand and always kept the class involved and interesting
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
none
Longer clinical time. It was so much fun but I would have liked a little more time on the rig
More student teaching.
Maybe a little more time spent on ALS support.
Nothing, 86, N/A, NONE. dont ever change, you are doing a GREAT AWESOME JOB!!!
I've spoken to Chico about the need for newer equipment. As it is right now, some of the equipment is not what we see in the field, most notably the gurney. I know he feels the same and has been petitioning for newer equipment.
none
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
I personally had a close call with a preceptor that could have got out of hand, Chico was concerned and came out to see what was going on. He talked me through it and helped me get going again. He has been a great teacher as well as a counselor for all of us in some way or another.
Available to listen, talk, or redirect. Awesome leader!!
He was there whenever we needed him. He was there on our days off to help us however we needed.
Ed constantly reminded us to study because I believe he genuinely wants to see his students succeed.
Throughout the semester he provided us students personal meetings about our progress, good or bad, which is good because if it was a good thing we would knew that the instructor noticies the things we do which we all know if a teacher complements you or says something good to you, you have that good feeling/motivation/happy that your hard work actually get noticed. If its a bad thing, he helps you to address what it may be, wether its you having a hard time retaining the subject/skill he wants to help you, and wants the feedback as if its not working for you personally it could also not work for students so he wants to know any concerns you may have. Which also shows that Chico has the drive to continuously improve the program as much possible. As feedback from the students aid in the the development of a great and successful program. Teacher & student working together.
Chico made sure to talk to us like equals and like fellow humans. He met with us personally to discuss our strengths and areas of growth as well as our grades and hear our thoughts. He was open and always made space for us to air our grievances, thoughts, emotions, questions, concerns, etc.
he allowed for time outside of class for meetings and has also reached out to students during clinical rotations to talk about problems/ bad experiences and made you feel better afterwards
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Chico has been one of the best teachers I've encountered in my college career. He not only knows his material but he knows how to explain the information in ways a cave man would comprehend. I would recommend him to any student with an interest in emergency care or medicine.
Yes! There needs to be more teachers like Chico
Yes I would. He is a great instructor.
He makes class interesting and interactive. He got me excited about becoming an EMT.
YES!!! i would recommend chico as long as you get into the program you will have CHICO as your instructor!!
Of course I'd recommend Chico as an instructor. He showed an amazing acumen at delivering his knowledge in effective ways and tried very hard to help all of his students on an individual and group level.
Yes because he's a straight up guy, he gives you all the tools and materials to better understand the content being taught, he really pushes you as an individual to rise to the occasion.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Great mentor and would be his EMT anyday
Just overall, an amazing teacher.
The class was very well taught. I could not ask for a more encouraging, knowledgeable, caring, and enthusiastic instructor than Ed.
Chico, I would just like to so say thank YOU!! for such a great semester, i am writing this before the exams so i am not sure yet if i am going to pass the exams (hopefully i do!!) thank you for giving me that second chance to change what had to be changed in myself to continue on. You continue to be my motivation, at whatever i do in this program and this pathway. You kept me going as i never wanna let you down. Again thank you for all the knowledge you've shared whether it was program based or personal knowledge, i know that i will retain them throughout my life or in any carrer path i may go in the future. Thank you and keep up what you are doing!!
Great man, great teacher.
great guy, he deserves to be teaching future classes because if not, the future classes will be missing out on a person that knows so much information and on job experience. all the side stories and techniques taught really help us as students to breakdown complex things into manageable tasks, all thanks to chico.
18. Other comments:
Small comment, i felt as throughout the semester we were taught one way about something then towards the end we were taught about the same thing but differently, i felt as not only on my behalf but the other students as well that information became fragmented as we learn things from other instructors that came in which contradicts another teacher and another teacher, which left us in disarray and causing us to second guess our self when we are performing or sharing the information to others. Its good that we are able to learn different things from different instructors, which makes the learning experience more broad in ways we wouldn't learn from just a book but it would be great if the instructors agrees to standardize the info being provided so that it does not contradicts what the other instructor says. Leaving us unsure and just asking more questions which makes us seem incompetent, as we should have attained the info by now.
I learned a lot from Chico and appreciate all the extra time he put into my classmates and I, especially on his own time outside of the classroom. Forever grateful.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Chico really knows how to relate to his students and makes it easy to listen to his lectures. He has so much knowledge and loves to teach and share it. But i think his biggest strength is he loves what he does and he emanates that to his students which in turn we are more eager to learn. I had many deep talks with Chico about my situation and life and how this career could fit into my life and Chico was always so encouraging. Even out in the field when he showed up on my ride along the amount of belief and trust he has in his students gives us the confidence to make him proud; that we know our stuff.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
I would suggest to keep the clinical rotations at one station for longer period of time. I had a really good schedule 4 days at one station. But a lot of my classmates didn't get a chance to get comfortable at one place because they jumped around so much. It's hard enough to get used to the duties and staff but to go to a new surrounding after one shift kind of sets us up for failure because you don't get to build a rapport with the staff and show them you know your stuff.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Chico was always so caring and really connected with each and every one of us in his own way. He made the class really pull together as one team. He was available anytime to talk by cell or in person. He genuinely had our best interest at all times to prepare us for the reality of the clinicals when you really have to perform
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
YES YES YES!!! This program is awesome and I think his style of teaching made it interesting to learn. 8hours is a long time to talk. His stories and real life experiences made the learning material more real and broke it down for us to understand better
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I think there should be more teachers like Chico who genuinely care about his students. LIke he said, this program allows you to not just be a number but they have a vested interest in us students because one day we will be their future partners one day.
18. Other comments:
Loved this program. I loved every minute of it. I switched careers because of Chico and believing in me. He gives great advice he's a great mentor and friend.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Edward Caballero exhibited an in-depth understanding and knowledge of the course material and the EMS system as a whole. He knew a lot about the pathophysiology of how things work in the body which helped me to understand why I would perform certain procedures in the field. He especially made the learning environment fun and exciting as well as comical and engaging. He could answer the questions I had about anything.
Knowlege of subject matter, real life experiences.
Being able to teach materials effectively in a way where students actually understand the information and keeping students interested by telling personal stories relating to the course.
Very entertaining which is key when teaching 8-hour lectures. Was definitely not boring; kept my attention the whole time during lectures. I have never written so many notes in my life! Gave lots of good examples and stories to keep it interesting. Very encouraging. I definitely like how you establish a personal relationship with each student; it really shows that you care.
Chico is very knowledgeable, helpful, relaxed, and gave us a lot of opportunities to learn. He answered all of our questions properly and made us really understand what we are trying to learn instead of making us memorize stuff. He gave us a lot of free time to practice skills and prepare for our final exam. The classroom was also made available for us when we needed it. The class atmosphere was relaxed and lectures were straight to the point with no beating around the bush. The study guide that was created prior to each exam was also very helpful. Chico was also open to us and cared about us as individuals and friends rather than "just another class of students".
Chico, teaches his class with excellence, full knowledge of the material, and passion. He was interesting, he kept us engaged and on our toes though out the semester. He pushed us to be the best that we could be. I am impressed with his knowledge and his strong stance on teaching us the right way to do things as apposed to the on the road techniques. He has high standards for us and leads by example. e id s phenomenal teacher.
He has a great background on EMS
Edward Caballero brought great knowledge to the class. He was able to explain the objective information clearly to the class and I. He also took any time he could to ensure a topic was clearly decried to either my classmates or myself.
Available on the days that we didn't have class.
-enthusiasm -teaching ability. I felt as if his lectures were taught in an effective manner. His style of teaching kept me interested in class. Made boring material, interesting to learn. -knowledge on the material. -provided many stories/examples to relate back to material.
He has great knowledge of the subject matter
Mr. Caballero is a highly competent and knowledgeable teacher. He explained the material in a way that everyone understood, and was always accessible to answer any questions. In addition, his professional experience and insight were extremely helpful to understanding the material, as well as the profession in general. Mr. Caballero is a much appreciated and invaluable asset to the EMT program.
Having experience in this career.
I have two BA majors and a few graduate credits and Chico is one of the top 5 lecturers I've ever had. He involves everyone, is a wealth of knowledge due to his decades of experience, offers real life EMS scenarios, brings in outside (NYC) experience into the tiny pond of Hawaii EMS which very important for this classroom to have, and he makes all of the classes fun.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Hmmm... Being that this man is not a long time resident of Hawaii, I feel he expressed a great understanding of the culture here in Hawaii and was able to connect well with it. The culture here is an integral part of the everything we do. And for him to connect well to everything that goes on here is awesome. I don't feel that he should make changes to himself as a person, but I do feel that there are changes that need to be made in the way the program works to help Edward Caballero produce good EMTs.
Better training for clinical rotations, especially IV training and PCR writing.
Teach the skills to the entire class and practice them more often as a class.
I understand that it was difficult to teach us everything we needed to know with only three days a week. You did a great job! One thing I would suggest though is teaching every skill (the ones that are tested) in class or at least run through it once so that everyone can see exactly how it's done (especially for those who don't go to the practice on Tuesday and Thursday). For example, a lot of people didn't learn how to do the bleeding control skill. If you take 5 minutes at the end of class every couple days to teach a new skill it would make sure that everyone has learned it. For example, if you finish the Bleeding section of the book, you could quickly show everyone how to do the Bleeding Control skill. That way there are no questions about how to do it.
I would suggest taking some time to teach us how an EMT should be able to perform their job aside from the bookwork. There should be a whole day dedicated to learning how to chart, mapping, using the equipment found in the back of an ambulance, and how to use the gurney. For example, right before clinical rotations, a whole week could be dedicated to learning what an EMT's job is. Monday would be a whole day of charting. Tuesday would be mapping and using the C&C or AMR gurneys (whatever is available). Wednesday would be learning how to restock an ambulance and doing a brief intro on how to do skills "on the road" (How C&C likes to take BGL after IV is in place, etc.) Thursday would be learning what's inside the trauma, airway, and drug bag (for example, why are there straps in the O2 bag in C&C ambulances, what are the OPA/NPA sizes, etc.), teaching us skills that are not part of NREMT such as setting up Nebulizer treatments, using CPAP, etc. Friday would be an open day for students to ask questions and review stuff right before they go on the road. Also, I would suggest more emphasis on how to do IV's and allowing time to give future students a shot to start IVs on each other.
The one thing I feel we needed to focus more on was writing charts. I think that Chico realizes that and will add it to next semester. Maybe focus on the skill sheet in a more detailed point by point way. I know we need to memorize the sheet, but the little details that are not on the sheet are important and may have given us a better understanding as we practiced through out the semester. Also focus a little more on things that we may experience on the road such as CPAP, nebulizer, a little more in depth on the drugs we use as an EMT, setting up I.V. lines for medics. I realize that a lot of this stuff we learn on the road, and Chico has a vast amount of material to present to us.
I wish the class was not cut down to 3 days a week. There was a lot to learn in so little time and it would have been nice to spend more time on the road
I feel that if Caballero took the time to ensure that we were all capable with the appropriate skills for us before we started our clinical rotations would allow must to perform the best we could. He taught us all the skills that would be helpful however if other areas were touched upon from what our preceptors would expect out of us would allow us to be proficient in what they needed form us.
-Should have more time for skills practice in class during the semester. -Since Tuesday's and Thursday's aren't required class times, we shouldn't be learning additional skills then. It's not fair for other student's. -Class was pretty unorganized; too many confusion with what was the "right" thing vs the "wrong" thing. -Would like to have other instructor's come in to help with skills rather than each other
Structure the course better. Having class on Monday Wednesday Friday and optional class on Tuesday Thursday was hard. Some people had to work on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so it was unfair that some people could come in and practice skills and some couldn't. It would have been better if Class was Monday through Friday, then people would be all on the same level, and then Chico couldn't make us feel like we were inadequate at doing skills or in school work.
-mainly more instructors to help students one on one with skills and scenarios. -the change from 5 days a week to 3 days a week puts students at a disadvantage out on the road. The two extra days are necessary in order to be proficient as an EMT.
Be more clear on what is allowed and what isn't. Sometimes it was hard to tell if we were supposed to do something or if it was something we were not to do
More chart writing(with an emphasis on terminology and abbreviations), and less case studies. While the help was much appreciated, more consistency is needed among the outside preceptors when evaluating and overseeing psychomotor skills. Many times it was confusing when we would learn a skill, as taught by the national standards, and then have it contradicted by preceptors, or when the preceptors would unnecessarily add something that was not within our knowledge base.
have time before going out on clinicals to go over and practice charting
1)Immediate grading of every exam and immediate feedback with review of each question was a great learning tool. So why did we skip this step on some of the most important tests? Midterm, PHTLS, and final: we never saw them. Students should be able to take home their tests. The program may be worried about copies floating around. If the question bank isn't big enough for this, it's easy enough to make it bigger. Overall, who cares if the students see a few repeat questions if they are taking the time to study their past tests and even memorize the answers. Even if that what will happen, the result is still learning. 2)The whole 40hr/week change-up to M,W,F late in the game shows the growing pains of the program. Chico did the best he could to make it work, but there was disproportionately small amount of time spent on essential skills needed prior to Day 1 of clinicals. We spent hours talking about snakebites and Weapons of Mass Destruction, but we had a very rushed one-day of scenarios using the actual ambulance. So many skills needed on Day 1 of clinicals were demonstrated only 1 time during the semester. Before clincal day 1, each student needs to reinact arrival on scene, evaluating, loading, and enroute with a patient (and a paramedic) at least 20 times. Each student should have a set order of events (pt in rig, monitor on and buckled in, BP cuff on, Dex on bench if applicable, pulse ox on finger, IV set---there are some things that are standard that we did not learn until a MICT was yelling at us. Granted, each MICT will have his own intructions, but a better base set order would be helpful. We never integrated this. Some of this can be prevented by repetition using the gurneys and rigs more on campus prior to clinicals. This was more important that any single skill sheet and will make the class look better than anything else during clinicals. There should be at least 2 whole days of this. And charting should be taught before clinical PCRs, not after all PCRs are turned in. 3) Finally, the class heard this phrase at least 5 times per week: "If you do X or don't do X, "you are out of the program." While this may be true, it perpetuates that HC&C mentality of pressure and "weeding out" rather than educating with the goal of making better EMS staff. Students heard at least 100 times during the semester how dysfunctional Hawaii EMS is (from every EMS worker who visited the class); the KCC program is one of the few ways the culture could change.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
I knew if I needed anything he would be there to answer questions or concerns. He was there for us on school days and non-school days. He was available through email and phone contact. He truly wanted us all to complete the program and succeed in what we do. He worked with us on days that we could not be in school and when we needed extra help.
Always available for students
Went over grades, suggested group study sessions and opened the classroom to students to study or practice skills during the week.
Always asked everyone how they were doing, if they had any questions, asked opinions. Encouraged everyone to keep going even when it got difficult. "Talk us off the ledge" if needed.
Chico talked with us one on one to talk about how we were doing in class and pulled aside students who were struggling and gave them pep talks. Also, getting other instructors to show up and help other students with skills when Chico was unable to or when he had his hands full with other things also showed me his concern on having us student learn and practice our skills properly.
I feel that Chico really cared about us as students and wanted us be the best that we could be. I only wish that there was a bit more positive feedback, when we did do things right. I don't think in this entire semester I personally got a good job, that was great, or well done. It could actually be that I didn't meet his high standards and don't deserve a thumbs up but some positive feedback for me personally would have been nice and would have kept my spirits up in the down times. So bottom line a little more positive encouragement if deserved.
He was always available via text and email
He takes the time to explain us the information needed to succeed in the program of study.
Always let us know to text or email him if anything.
Sometimes it seemed like he only showed concern for some students and not for others. He treated students unfairly.
-talked to students individually about their progress in class.
He was always there to help and give advice. Was unbiased and was a neutral person to talk to which in this field is hard to find
Mr. Caballero consistently showed concern for his students by always making himself available. Questions were always answered quickly, and his approach to teaching was non-confrontational but stern, which allowed us to fully absorb the information without feeling undignified.
By being available outside of class.
He worked with our clinical schedules. He let us argue test questions which is actually a great learning process.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Definitely. I think his personality really made the class that much more enjoyable. If he wasn't so funny and sarcastic a lot of the time, the course would be boring. He knew very well the information he was relaying to us and could explain in detail what was going on in the body.
Yes, he is fair and lets you know what you need to know for the exams.
Yes because he is great at teaching this course
Yes because you're a great all around teacher.
Yes, despite the fact that Chico has only been here for a couple years, I believe that he is a great instructor and gets along well with the different types of people and cultures that we have in Hawaii.
Yes, he rocks. I literally learned more in 4 months than I did when getting my Bachelors degree at a University.
Yes I do. He was a great teacher!
Yes i would. I feel that Caballero would provided the best learning atmosphere for any individual.
No, because I didn't think he was a very good teacher. He treated some students with respect and others without. He showed a lot of favoritism. He was very rude to some students and very nice to some. He would make some rude comments to some students and it would make some students not very good about themselves. He also taught us things that were "wrong." For example, before we went out onto the road, he taught us the way that he does things, and not the way that the City does things. So when we went out on the road, we all got yelled at because we were doing it "wrong." We also didn't get to learn a lot of the very basic EMT skills that we should have known before we went out onto the road and it made us, the students, look really bad. The paramedics and EMTs in the City would say "Who taught you that?" or "You guys didn't learn that?" and we were just honest and say that we either saw it once, but never practiced it, or we honestly didn't learn/know it. Going to class was unenjoyable because we were treated unfairly and very poorly. Again, Chico showed favoritism to some students and treated others very poorly. For example, when some people talked, they would get yelled at, but when other's talked, they wouldn't get yelled at. Sometimes some people weren't even doing anything wrong and they would get yelled at. When practicing skills, Chico would be so critical to some people and not to others; for example, if some students were playing around during skills, he would just look at them and laugh, but if others were trying to really do it seriously and were doing everything right but didn't do it the way he wanted, he would talk down to them. Chico doesn't know how to treat everyone the same and everyone with respect. His tone of voice to some students are very condescending and rude. Overall, not a good teacher. I would not recommend him to anyone, unless they like being treated with no respect and treated unfairly.
Yes, he is an enthusiastic teacher who seems to enjoy what he does.
Yes. Good instructor
I would highly recommend Mr. Caballero to anyone who is serious about learning anything relating to emergency medicine. His knowledge, professional experience and insight were incredibly impressive, and I admired his connection with all of the students. His respect for his profession and fellow human beings will not be forgotten. It was an honor to have him as our teacher.
Yes, He is the only one that teaches this course to get the state license.
Absolutely. Best MICT for the job that I've met in Hawaii. There are others who may be equally experienced but they won't have the classroom skills.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I think he did the best he could do with the course he was provided to teach. Being that we were the first EMT B course in a very long time, it was a transition to go from teaching EMT-I to EMT-B and I think he did a pretty good job.
Very good at differentiating between school knowlege and actual real life knowlege necessary to do EMT work in the field.
One of the best teachers I've had and thanks!
You keep everything "real"; especially when it comes to talking about C&C versus AMR, etc. You tell us straight up what is expected and then expected us to follow through.
I am impressed that he has entered and survived the EMT system here in Hawaii, coming from New York, immersing himself in the Hawaiian culture and entering such a tight nit community with such success is highly respectable. He has done an excellent job in regards to the amount of time he has been here. In the next couple years I know that he will have this class curriculum down to perfection.
He was very helpful and thank him for getting my EMT certificate
Edward Caballero is a great teacher. He knows a lot about this area of study, He provides a lot of information about the topics that must be met in the program. It allows for us students to obtain the best information and answer all our questions about the topics.
Interesting instructor who always came to class with a smile...well, for the most part. lol
Good job teaching everyone to the best of your ability, even though others come in with a different approach to many things; I don't know how I would have done it differently.
Give him a raise.
18. Other comments:
Having class 3 times a week and clinical rotations for only 4 weeks, is not long enough to have students learn all the information needed in the classroom and on the road.
I really appreciate all of your help and encouragement. I definitely plan on coming back next semester to help the new students.
It was hard to be a student in this "transition" period, where the program is switching from EMT-Is to EMT-Bs. We look very inadequate as far as skills when we're out on the road. As compared to the even the last semester, the EMTs have better skills than us. It makes us look and feel bad. If class was structured better, like we had bookwork on MTW and skills on TF, then it would have been better. Also, they cut our clinical rotations time by a lot, so we didn't have a lot of time to learn on the road. We should have had a couple of days with AMR and more days with the City, because they said that as soon as we're done with the program the City will hire us, and we should be riding on ALS rigs so we know our roles as EMTs.
Regarding the program: financial aid was a horrible failure. EMT-B could have been more in depth being that this is not an EMT-I program anymore. This program has a lot of potential and being that we are the first class I hope a lot of kinks are worked out. Other than that I really appreciate this opportunity to give back to my community, going through this program chico really gave me the opportunity to challenge myself and grow. I'll definitely be back to assist the upcoming classes.
The late-notice curriculum hours reduction, and subsequent loss of financial aid accredidation, and how it was handled (late info, lack of info, mis-info--reactionary moves instead of preventative) all fall under basic ethics and behaviors opposite of what the EMT program aims to instill in its students.

He knows a lot about EMS and was readily available when needed outside classroom hours.
Knowledgable
Please see previous survey...
Same as other survey.
see previous comments for EMT-100 for all Chico-related questions.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Less days at AMR, more days at City!!!!
lecture a little bit more pertaining to slides but not by reading them word for word
More clear on case studies
A. Akana and Chico need to talk more with hospital staff to get them all on the same page as far as student participation. The effectiveness of the OB day and the Psychiatric day was largely based on how open an individual staff member (be it RN or Psych Tech) was to having a student around, or not. I realize we are a guest in their house, but don't invite us in if you are not going to let us do anything. Anyway, anytime teaching can be stressed these RNs, let them know that they determine how many of our hours are wasted or worthwhile.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
always available via cell phone and email. introduced us to important people in EMS
Open door policy
Same as other survey.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes. He taught me a lot
Yes

17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?

18. Other comments:
I think being in class and being on the road are two completely different aspects of the EMT program. Edward Caballero did his best to teach us classroom/testing information that was pertinent to passing the NREMT and to have a base knowledge of working in the field. But on the job experience was much different from classroom work. I feel the outline of the program and skills could be thought out better. There are things that we are gonna be expected to learn that we haven't learned. I think it's a horrible idea that future classes will not need a biology pre-requisite to apply for the program. Someone needs to change that because future graduating EMT students will have NO knowledge of the body and its systems and WHY certain procedures are done. Please do not allow this change to happen. Make it necessary for students to take pre-reqs of biology etc. Thanks!
Same as other survey.
Overall, I appreciate the opportunity to go into the ER, OB, Kekela, ambulances. So thanks for setting it up.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
his warm and welcoming demeanor made it easy to discuss concerns and questions i had. He was extremely available to all of us and was even willing to come in on the weekends to help us and give us time to practice our skills. he treated everyone with respect and made it a very comfortable learning environment which made me look forward to every class. it is clear that he has a lot of experience and loves what he does.
Not just extremely knowledgeable, but very patient and understanding when teaching. He doesn't make you feel intimidated or dumb, he really helps you understand the learning material.
Lots of experience in the EMS field
very enthusiastic about his subject, passed that enthusiasm along to students
He knew the subject very well and was able to answer our questions. He made himself approachable and available when needed.
His experience as an MICT has shown me his dedication to the profession, willingness to teach, and ability to communicate well with his students.
organized.
Knowledgable in the material he is teaching.
The way he connects the course material to real life situations is amazing!
Very inspiring, able to present material in an interesting and thought provoking manner, engaging and humorous. can pull a 747 with his teeth.
Very fair, easy to talk to.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
No changes, whatsoever, future students will benefit greatly by his teaching.
keep a stronger command of the class, sometimes they got away from you (certain students) , and it occasionally (but not most of the time) got too rowdy and hard to learn in that kind of atmosphere, and when students just walked in and out as they pleased, i understand for the bathroom, but the coffee making and the baby feeding randomly seemed a bit much. You provide enough breaks, those things should be done at that time to avoid distraction.
Change the rug in training room!
more real life situation for practice
Do more real life situations.
Encourage more blood pressure taking practice and have a section where students chart in class before going on the road.
Its a ton of material to present in a short amount of time, so i can see its a struggle to stay on schedule while wanting to go deeper into different areas. I guess the only thing i would have liked is more oversight on the skills practice time, because some people tended to loose focus when unsupervised.
To be solid when distinguishing students rolls out in the field. Als vs bls.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
he had an open door policy. he was always willing to meet with us if we needed to talk and even encouraged us to come into his office to tell him about our experiences. when i went in to talk to him he did not rush me out of his office and always remained available if i ever needed to discuss anything.
He showed personal interest in each of his students growth as an EMT.
answered ALL questions
always available in person, office, phone or email, always reachable, came in on weekends if students needed more practice time, we asked for a study guide because we thought it would be helpful to us and he made us one
He would talk to the students in a private and give encouragement especially when things go bad.
He made himself available, 24/7 so we could be in contact during the semester.
email phone, text
Always available.
By being available outside if class hours throughout the entire coarse and encouraging us to contact him on a regular basis.
he would encourage or support you if you were falling behind anywhere, just got the feeling that he wanted all of us to succeed
He was always available
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
definitely. he is a very experienced paramedic and is therefore able to explain the information in the text very well. he gives great examples and is always willing to spend the extra time on a subject if we are having difficulty understanding it. he is very open and welcoming and makes it easy for students to feel like they are welcome in his classroom.
I would recommend Edward Caballero to anyone who wants to be taught by one of the LEGENDS in the field of Emergency Medicine, and receive the BEST emergency medical training available.
yes
yes, strong instructor, but student friendly, very approachable
Definitely Yes. He was one of my better instructors that knows what he is teaching and actually cares about his students.
Yes, he can communicate well with students.
Yes. He is a great teacher.
Yes absolutely! Chico is probably the most passionate instructor I have had.
Yes, defiantly, for all the reasons above.
Yes sir.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Not only is he a great teacher in the classroom, he's an even better mentor in the field.
none.
Stay classy. Lol
incredibly handsome.
Use more audio/visual material.

Edward Caballero brings new ideas to the field of emergency medicine and I hope to one day have the opportunity to work for or with him, to make Hawaii's EMS even greater than it already is.
very much enjoyed this class
the pcr & case studys were a very good tool to learn, I recommend writing more charts and case studys for the future classes to become proficient.
Tests & exams need to be broken down even more to allow students to grasp material before moving on.

He is very disciplined, honest, and passionate towards the students.
kept students up to speed via email all the time, with reminders and information, the study guide helped, and liked being able to argue points for the exams. friendly and smiles a lot :) seemed to enjoy challenging the students
Concern for students
Knowledgable in course material.
Please see comments for EMT 100 coarse.
He clearly has massive amounts of experience in the field and he really shows it when teaching and explaining skills.
able to demonstrate real world application of classroom information.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
none
regarding practicum, felt we missed a couple of things. and we never did get to go over PCR before we hit the road, andrew promised a mini class, but never got one. some confusion regarding where to go when a station closed, sometimes took a little longer getting a response from andrew via text or email, they always did come finally though. thank you. also at least tell students about the dex from the iv please, so we dont look like idiots. but then emphasize that the proper way is with the lancet. carry seat. it was hard learning skills from so many perspectives, many instructors, many helpers, all a good thing but everyone taught it different, it would be good as far as skill testing went, to learn it ONE way. i think people got confused. that made somethings harder and more stressful than necessary
Do more real life situations.
Please see comments for EMT 100 coarse.
Don't change a thing
the PCR sheet, make it more like a city chart
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
he made sure we all understood material before moving on!
see the strengths, also made coffee available
Always available
Please see comments for EMT 100 coarse.
He really expressed his concern for each of his students, and worked with each of us in the areas where we needed help.
encouraged us to check in often, wanted to know how we were doing.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes! He is a good person.
yes, much fun in learning here
Definitey Yes! He is a teacher that truely cares for his students.
Yes, he is a great teacher
Please see comments for EMT 100 coarse.
I would recommend Edward Caballero to anyone who wants the best training available.
yes, very good teacher. knows his material, has plenty experience. funny.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
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.
Knew the subject area, plenty of experience, was a good teacher
Great attitude, good communicator, very helpful, knowledgeable, interesting, fun, and awesome.
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.
fairness, accessibility and willingness to impart his experience
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.
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.
he is a really awesome teacher , knows how to explain and teach in a fun way .
Knew his field well
His experience, ability to keep students interested, and overall ability to be a good and effective teacher.
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.
A great teacher who shows his experience.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
No changes necessary.
I liked the way that the course was set up
Diet and exercise
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.
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.
none
More practice with the actual ambulance, and pcr charting.
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.
None, great job!
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
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.
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.
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.
1.accessible to students outside of class by Cell and Email 2.lets us stay late
by asking what we needed help with and personally talking with us to help us out.
He is always available when we call
Available to talk to 24/7
He showed concern by always asking if we have question and being available to answer questions.
Could contact chicho any time by calling him on his phone or email.
Always available when needed, even outside of class.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
I would highly recommend Mr. Caballero to other students. He is very personable. He cares about it students. He is smart and well experienced. I greatly enjoyed taking his class.
Yes because he knew the subject area and was more than willing to help students after class
Yes. Great instructor that made class fun and interesting.

I would recommend chico to other students because he is a good teacher, you learn a lot from him. Most of all chico is fair with his grading just the class is very demanding.
Yes, very experienced at what he does, caring attitude, and much too offer his students.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
My class with Mr. Caballero was one of the best experiences I had with Kapiolani Community College.
Chico is a great instructor. All of my expectations where met and exceeded.
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!
This was a very enjoyable class. Hope to see you on the road.
He was a really helpful teacher.
He likes coffee
He is a great teacher who loves what he does and his wealth of knowledge and experience is an asset not only a asset to his students but to the school itself.
Thanks chico for the awsome semester wish it was longer, I finally got to start running calls only to have my rotations finish.
One of the best teachers I have had. Thanks for everything Chico!

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Motivational, inspirational, good communicator, great instructor.
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.
Good teacher went out of his way to teach.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
He's perfect the way he is
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.
Break up the rides longs between basic and advance.
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 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.
Yes
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
He's AWESOME
Please make the class a few weeks longer and chico you rock!
