13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Her ability to use her culture and humor, to make a language in which no one talks, absolutely fun and helpful. Always has a good attitude.
Good instructor, makes sure students interact amongst each other. Noise discipline is pretty to ensure proper learning of American sign language.
She is always so patient and ready to answer any questions I have. She made the class fun and easy to learn. There are never any surprises in the class, meaning that she communicates to us everything we need to know. I really enjoy learning ASL from Crissy.
She is genuinely concerned about her students' success. She uses creative techniques to make learning fun and interesting, including dvds, stories, and games.
She knows her subject very well and encourages others to share the same passion that she has.
She's fun, funny, creative, hardworking, friendly, and treats every student with respect. She is able to cover the material in fun, new, and encouraging ways. Also, there were no "dumb" questions. She was more than willing to answer any questions students had.
Chrissy's ability to connect with each student.
Christine Holmes is an amazing teacher, she knows her subject down to the teeth and is ALWAYS avaible and willing to help students. She loves her students and treats everyone like family. She's one of the best professors at kcc and i recommend her to all my friends.
She is a great teacher. She obviously knows the subject matter well, but she is careful to work with students where they are at. She is also funny and makes what we are learning interesting.
She made sure that we didn't talk in class and that we signed as much as possible. She loves what she teaches. She's very motivational!
Christine creates a positive and fun atmosphere that makes it easier to stay focused and want to learn.
She is very nice and knows her subject very well.
She's very thorough in her teachings. She takes her time in explaining the topic to make sure you understand.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
None.
nothing, really. I wish the textbook for this particular course was update, but isn't the instructors fault, but the publisher and perhaps develop the slides to match the book picture for picture. It is sometimes difficult to get the idea of the signed picture with the proper meaning for the words. I have been mistaken a few times and have gotten answers wrong because of it.
None
I feel that the way the class was aranged was horiable. Atleast for test/quiz days move the tables so that everyone could see. Don't assume that everyone can see. When people tell you they couldn't see what you signed after the test was done and weren't sure what you signed was right, maybe sign it again infront of them it's only fair. This is not only for christine, this goes for the other ASL classes that are held in the same room. The lack of space, and the way they aranged the seats were poorly done.
none
More game usage in learning new signs for ASL 102.
none.
Keep up what you're doing! You're the greatest ASL instructor!
None.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She was always answering her emails to students, and went very in depth with every lesson.
Always ask if we have questions.
Crissy shows concern by just being herself. She is always willing to understand any problems and treats everyone in class with respect.
She is very approachable and open to any questions her students have. She observes student interaction and makes corrections to help us better learn ASL.
She always corrects her students if they make a mistake and she's always open to listen to her students and their suggestions.
Spent the time to work with each person as needed, and always had question and answer times during class.
Chrissy's concern for the students with their learning ability on a new topic is evident. Chrissy show's compassion for each student and is always accommodating time for extra help.
She made sure we understood what is being taught. She made sure we knew our grades. She is always willing to help clarify our questions.
She always asks how people are and takes time after class if people need to talk.
She helps them anytime they needed her.
She would work with students inside and outside of class. She's available via email too.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes. Already have, because she is a great teacher in her subject. She is able to relate with both the Deaf and Hearing community.
yes, because i believe students will be able to pick up some of the skills learned for brief ASL conversations.
Yes. I reccommend learing from Crissy because she makes ASL fun!!
Absolutely!! She is very patient, understanding and, willing to help her students learn as much as possible about Deaf culture and ASL.
I would recommend Christine Holmes to other students because she doesn't only know her subject well but she also makes it fun and interesting.
Yes. For students who don't pick up on languages very easily, she will make it easy for you. She uses creative approaches, so you never feel like its only a lecture. As you participate, she uses games and questions, which means that you pick up the language without even knowing how much you have learned. Learning is fun, and even though she teases you when you forget a sign, she is more than willing to help you get it right, and helps you to find ways to remember for next class.
YES! Chrissy is excellent an a example on how professors should be.
Yes, I would recommend Christine Holmes because she loves what she teaches. She's always willing to help clarify what we don't understand. She's personable. She's the greatest ASL instructor.
Yes. Her classes flow well and she is fun.
Yes, she is very fun and nice, she helps you with anything you need.
That's a big YES!! She's a GREAT teacher and makes learning ASL fun and very interesting.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Thank you for a great class again!
n/a
Thank you Crissy for teaching me ASL. I am really going to miss you next semester when I transfer to UH.
Good Luck next semester!!
If you get to know her, she is willing to teach you more signs so that conversations in ASL become more natural and fun. Email her when you need to take quizzes or see her in office hours, because she is a very busy woman. However, she is always approachable and has an excellent sense of humor.
Thank you for enlightening everyone with American sign Language. Sincerely, Kurt Tsubota
Everyone should take her for ASL 101/102
She is an AWESOME teacher and KCC should make sure that she never leaves.
18. Other comments:
n/a
Encourages learning ASL in a stress free environment and wants students to get better. Encourages students to go to more Deaf Events than required so that their ASL skills will improve.
Thank you soooooooooooooooooooo much Crissy! I learned alot from you! I will continue to practice my ASL!

16. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
she cares for her students to learn and excel!!!!
She is kind-hearted and very understanding. She takes the time to answer every student's questions whether it was related to the topic that day or not. She makes us feel that we are welcomed into the deaf culture and shares all the information we ask. I love Crissy!She is the best ASL teacher!
knows the material extremely well and knows how to get the students to understand.
Concern for students and their learning!!
The way she teaches encourages us to participate and practice our sign language skills
She is very caring. I enjoy her classes . she always has the class interact with oneanother.
She relates well to her students and genuinely wants them to grasp the material. She's a lot of fun and very relaxed.
Crissy is kind, patient and understanding.
She is very patient and knowledgeable about the subject. She is willing to repeat directions in various ways until those of us who had difficulty with a topic, understands the material. She also makes learning fun.
Crissy is a great teacher. She is fun and always makes class fun and interesting.
great teacher. made learning fun. never gives up on students, explains over and over until everyone in the class understands no matter how long it takes.
Her enthusiasm & positive attitude, her obvious desire that we learn ASL well, her notification of applicable Deaf events for us to attend, her availability via Tokbox & email, her clear signing.
Teaching ASL, she really breaks down the concepts and really tries to help us understand. If we have a question or don't understand something, she will slow down or back up to the problem.
Professor Holmes possesses the ability to fully understand and gains the respect from her students. Her teacher techniques are completely helpful to all types of students. Her patience and kindness makes her an outstanding professor for any student can ask for.
I love her as a teacher. She is patient and understanding and helps in whatever way she can.

none
She is too nice to the students sometimes and they take advantage of her. Many students talk in class when it is not allowed and disrupt the learning of others. Maybe she can be more strict when it comes to speaking in class and deduct points or something.
None.
Perhaps less videos even though i thought it was very interesting
Maybe more interactive games to learn ASL

19. How did the instructor show concern for students?
making sure everyone understood
She was very understanding when some of us couldn't make it to class. She would do a quick review of what she taught in the last class just to keep us up to date with learning. She used many examples and made sure we understood signs.
She always encouraged us to participate
She was always available, friendly and understanding
She made sure that everyone understood the material, and if they didn't, she spoke to them one on one and went over the material again.
She goes the extra mile to make sure we understand what is being taught. She will review concepts and answer questions even after we have moved to a new subject.
By effectively communicating each day what was expected of us and opened the classroom up for discussion and questions. She was always willing to meet with us outside of class and she stayed behind class to help anyone in need.
She always made sure everyone understood before she went on.
Same as above: Her enthusiasm & positive attitude, her obvious desire that we learn ASL well, her notification of applicable Deaf events for us to attend, her availability via Tokbox & email, her clear signing & her willingness to repeat herself &/or clarify if necessary.
Because her signing style and teaching is very different and probably more difficult than my past classes, I have really had a hard time keeping up. I am trying my best and when I don't understand something in class, she is always there for me to ask her after class. She doesn't put me down for not knowing what she was talking about in class because I am still learning so much more than the other students because I feel as though my learning of ASL is a little behind and slower.
through emails and one on one conversations with students.
20. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes because she is the best!!!!!
Oh yes!!! Of course I would recommend Crissy to everyone! She is the best! She is thoughtful, kind and understanding. On top of that, she is a great teacher! She helps us understand the subject and teaches us new signs and information everyday!
Yes, this teacher is very clear to understand.
yes, I think she's the best ASL teacher
Yes
Yes I would. She's the best ASL instructor I've ever had. I learned a lot from her.
Yes, she is very good with ASL teaching and she is very patient.
Yes! She is a very good teacher.
Yes,because she is very involved with the deaf community and is always inviting her students to events so we can better understand the community and sharpen our ASL.
yes. i learned a lot form this class. i looked froward to coming to class. made learning fun, explained everything in great detail. gave feed back so that students could learn from their mistakes.
Absolutely.
Yes, she is an amazing teacher. She is hard such as homework, etc, but I wish I had her from ASL 102 because I would have learned so much more. I am not saying my teacher I had before was junk, but he was a good teacher for 101, but maybe 102 I needed a bigger push to learning and understanding ASL more.
yes because professor Holmes is everything a student could ask for in a language course.
21. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
really good teacher!!!
I love you Crissy!
I have learned much from their class.
I Love Crissy she wants you to learn and get involved with the deaf community .
I have learned so much from her and am very grateful for her constant words of encouragement!
great great great instructor! =]
She's one of the best ASL instructors I have had because I understood her & she was always willing to repeat herself or clarify.
She's a GREAT teacher! I hope I can be as good of a teacher as she is.
I wish Professor Holmes was teaching 300 level classes as well because she has motivated me to continue to gain the knowledge of American Sign Language.

18. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Needs to be more firm with homework assignments to make sure students keep up and turn them in
There is one project, the traveling project that we did that was changed from a group to individual project. I think if it was kept a group project it would've been better because the presentation needed to include a lot of information. I think they came out alright though even though they were individual presentations...it was just a lot of work!
19. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She was flexible for students.

I will miss her!
22. The instructor actively listened to students.
