13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
she made it fun and easy to learn.
I enjoyed the class projects we did because it allowed me to get a glimps of the kind of i will be doing in the future.
I enjoyed this coursre. It was challenging in a good way that it helped me become more responsible attendance wise and turning in assignments on time etc. Mrs Dela Cruz covered the course material very well and in a way that was easy to understand. She used a variety of teaching methods such as written assignments videos demenstration excursion and hands on labs. These all helped me to apply what i was learning and develop an easier understanding of concepts and the principles behind what she was teaching. The labs that we did were also enjoyable it helped me to develop good thinking in figuring out how to apply the code compliance into our labs and also Mrs. Dela Cruz stressed the importance of safety and workmanship. Overall i enjoyed this semester and i have benafited greatlty i look forward to next semester with her and learning more and furthering my experiance.
The hands on is crucial. Physical demonstrations far more effective than just reading. The project that had us bringing our homes up to code was eye-opening and a great way to have us apply this course to our lives.
I liked that we got to use the knowledge that we learned in the class and actually use what we learned in our class projects. actually using what we learned from the books and applying it to lab was very helpful in helping understand what the book was trying to teach us.
I liked everything about this class.
i realy liked the hands on and lab time we had. I catch on alot quicker by physicaly doing things
I enjoyed everything about this class she really helped me learn alot about the field of electricity and she gave us alot of fun hands-on type of work and to me thats what makes students learn more faster and it keeps the students interested in the major theyre in. well ms. dela-cruz if u get to read this its me your favorite student KAULANA hahahaha....thanks for teaching me all that you could it really helped me....
i liked that she was always there to answer any questions i had about installing and general knowlege of EIMT.
I liked the hands on experience, and Mrs. provided a lot of visual examples to better understand the subject matter.
I believe our field trips helped me understand what I learned in class and put it in a "real life" perspective. I enjoyed doing lab projects, again, it helped me understand what the EWR and NEC was teaching.
i like how i entered into this course not knowing anything about electricity but gained the basics of how it works. Its fun and challenging because its hands on and you think a lot.
course was very imformative. all lectures were very well thought out and intsructor was always prepared. Class activities were helpful in testing our abilities as well as helping understand the material. labs were very helpful in giving us a hands on approach into what we were learning in lecture. Class had a good balance of lectures and labs and tests.
What I like about the course, was the hands on experience also the field trips that Mrs.D put together was vary useful towards this type of traid.
The hands on work, the care provided by the teacher when it came to safety, working with tools, making sure we fully understand the tasks and or work that is handed out and given to us. i really appreaciate that renee dela cruz was with each student on the different levels of work and task and that she was understanding that each student learned at different paces
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
longer lunch break
I think treating us as students wanting to learn a valuable trade and paying for it versus employees would be an improvement.
i think that it is good the way that it is.
i feel if we could actually wire up a whole house or participate in the modle home we would have gained a lot more knowledge
I wouldnt change anything about this class aslong as ms. dela-cruz is teaching it cause she's GRRRRREAT......like frosted flakes cereal.....hahahhahaha
i think haveing a model home to wire up would be beneficial to us students who can put what we learned in class into a real job sight
I feel Safety could of been taught in about half the time. I felt a lot of repetition of topics in safety videos and worksheets. I understand the importance of safety and that you have to make sure that the young students don't horse play, but I would've prefered to cover more material, and get more hands on experience that I would use out in the field. My complaint about the class is with the students. I'm an older student and alot of my classmates are just out of high school, so I felt the class could move at a faster pace. If students were'nt dragging their feet on certain assignments like reading. Also,other immature behavior would divert our instructor's attention from instruction to dicipline, so that was frustrating as well, to get lectured for poor behavior. That's just the way it is, you have to teach to the middle, and I think our instructor did a great job juggling her responsibilities.
I think this course is difficult for someone like me who has no clue about residential wiring. I've never thought about how electricity works or how receptacles and switches are wired and operate. During this first semester, I can say that I've gained valuable information on the basic do's and don't's of wiring and what the NEC requires. There are so many codes regarding what is permitted and not permitted in residental wiring. Stategically, Mrs. Dela Cruz goes over (and over) the codes in class and believe it or not the codes are actually starting to stick in my brain!! It is my opinion that Mrs. Dela Cruz is very competent in teaching this course and she gives enough support and discipline to keep all her students engaged and motivated.
none
I was really bummed to hear about the electrical class not being part of the model home, but hopefully later on in the future it would be a really good idea to be part of it. Haveing to use all the code knowledge,class labs and put it towards the house will not only benifit us physically but menatally also.
None
15. Other comments:
Great teacher!!!!!!!!!!!!
I feel that I learned alot from her teachings and the way she was willing to help without hesitating alot made me comfortable with taking this course.
I appreciate this program overall i think its an excellent program I am learning a lot and also learning to be more responsible as a student. I feel that Mrs Dela Cruz is doing a very good job and i have no complaints.
ms. d was very helpful in completing my first semester. She helped me understand alot of things that i believe will be helpful for me in my future career
MRS Dela Cruz did a awsome jod with us this semester. She made learning fun while maintaining a safe and healthy work environment. I enjoyed my class with her and look forward to next semester with her again.
MS. JUS KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK......GREAT JOB.....and have a good and safe winter break........and be good.....haha.....
i really enjoyed Ms.delacruz class and i would refer my brother and freinds to take this course in college. It was easy taking in all the information she gave to me and apply it into different aspects of my life, not only for school purposes but also in everyday life
I enjoyed our instructor's method of teaching. You could tell she really cared about doing a good job, and making sure we understood the material.
I had thoughts (when I first started this semester) that maybe this course was too hard for me. But now I feel that I can approach Mrs. Dela Cruz with any questions or concerns and she will do her best to help me understand the information. I feel now that my chances of success are high!!
i feel that i have learned a lot this semester and i look forward to next semester.
Mrs. Dela Cruz was always prepared for class. Everyone was treated fair and equal. from the start our goal was to turn us into vialbe assets in the work force while learning basic residential wiring techniques and i feel this class exceeded all of its goals. While being a very strict instructor class was always fair, and rules were set inplace. we as students always knew what was expected of us and although alot was asked of us we all are better because of it. Also while keeping strict class rules (for saftey reasons) the instructor always motivated and pused us to become better. I think that this class was a great success and our intructor is a big part of that. it was a great first semester in the eimt program and im looking forward to next semester with the same instuctor.
Mrs.D I like your teaching habits because you dont just push the knowledge you let us go on our own pace and work from there. I hope to see you next semester.

nothing
If i was to teach this course i would improve it buy getting more electrical supplies for the class and for the lab
n/a
I would have the students wire-up the model home that the carpentry class is going to build. But I'm aware that there is some liability issues, so that can't be allowed. Other than that this class was excelent!
I wouldnt change it too much because its been going good.
nothing. its all gravy
Nothing very Good
i wouldnt change anything about this course.
more feild trips
20. What do you think of the teacher and his/her teaching methods?
I think mrs.D has a great way of teaching. She knows what she talking about as an electrician instructor and as a electrician business owner. she's very helpful and understanding when students need help. I would consider and recommend anyone who is looking to become and electrician that mrs. Renee Dele Cruz is a smart and awesome instructor and also teaches you the right way of wiring and understanding your codes.
there good
Good teacher... knows alot about the subject. Teaching methods are very good.
she is the perfect teacher
renee Dela cruz is a very helpful teach explains the work that need to be done.
Awesome
Mrs. Dele Cruz's teaching methods is very good. I like how she can explain complex concepts in a very easy to understand manner. I also like how she makes learing easy and fun.
Ive learned a lot from the teachings, considering i didnt no anyting wen i came into the program.
really good. unclear subjects were made clear and understandable
Very Good
very helpful and easy to follow.
Mrs. Dela Cruz has excellent teaching methods she uses her personal experience to teach some of the techniques needed for the job skills required
good w/room to add.
21. Has he/she contributed to your general knowledge or to learning job skills?
yes. very much so
YES!!!!
yes i have
yes
Of Course
Yes.
Yes ive learned a lot from doing projects and our labs in class.
all of what i know bout electrical was contributed from her
I learnd plenty
yes a whole lot
yes she has i have learned a lot from her this year and the skills needed to complete the job
know more then I did when I started the year.
22. Other comments:
this was the best class i have been in yet! it went by really fast
none
n/a
I dont like the text book we used (EWR) it was very confusing and I did not think it was helpful at all. This book jump all over the place. Usally when you read the book you can get the answer but this one it was very difficult to follow and comprehend. Two Thumbs Down
n/a
Knowing how to do the job I think is more important then attendance. becacse a person can change be on time faster then not knowing what to do and getting other hurt. Plus its our money were using to pay for the class so we shouldnt be graded on our attendance if we can pass the test and do the work.
