20. How did the instructor show concern for students?
very much so... she sees them after class and makes sure she promotes her office hours for further help. Love this teacher
Religion was a subject that was tough to grasp. She made it so it was fun and easy to understand.
by talking to them
She will help in whatever way the students needs help on something (class-related).
Sarah has been available and has always took the time and interest in all her students.
She made sure we felt comfortable asking questions, to make sure we understood the material being covered.
Very good at listening to peoples ideas.
She always welcomes questions and makes sure that students feel comfortable with her replies and that she has been understood. She encourages questions and is always respectful of students points of view.
She was always open to explaining anything, she gave her time to ensure we fully understood our studies before going further into them.
the more positive the voice, the more positive the class environment is; she gets a A+ for that in my book. she caused debates in class to make sure student interacted and understood the course content.
She took time to explain ever part of each religion as clearly as possible...
Wanted us to understand, found different ways to explain so we did understand. Targeted everyones ways of learning, verbal, visual, groups...
she offers time after class. she answers all questions and always double checks to make sure that students understand the concepts/subject she is covering.
She asked about our weekends and breaks often.
She made sure that her students were understanding of the material and always tried to explain things in other ways if we didnt understand.
She gave them different ideas to choose from and never imposed her will on anyone
Professor Hadmack shows concerns for her students by expressing an interest in whether the student has an understanding if so, her attitude is great if not she works with the student(s) in class or offers to take time to discuss the issue after class.
SHe always encourages students to ask questions on anything they have trouble understanding.
Just as Malia treated sudents, she offered to hear others opinions without shooting them down.
She is always ready to help clarify anything during break or after class. She also encourages students to email her for more information on subjects not talked about in depth during class.
Very concerned about her students. Understands them and helps them to retain info taught.
She is available outside of class, always makes sure all material is understood before moving on and has no issue fielding questions from everyone in the class before proceeding.
Sarah always showed concern for students and was very understanding. Extremely nice person and a joy to be around.
Sarah is very clear and concise on what is expected from each student, allowing the best possible chance for a good grade. She takes the time to answer questions, and makes herself available for instruction outside of class time.
She always wants to know if we understand, and if not we raise our hands and she answers our questions. if its off topic or we run out of time, she tells us to her after class or office hours.
She would ask a variety of questions throughout the class time to make sure everyone understands what she is teaching.
Sarah was very fair in her explanations of the different world religions, she was wonderful at teaching the topic without any bias toward one side or the other
She asks us if we have any questions and she would remind us that if we did not take our test yet please do so until a certain date.
Sarah Hadmack always makes sure to take time to answer all of her students questions. She also, puts together slide shows and goes over the information to make sure that the students understand the material better.
always makes time to meet with students if they are having difficulty

Sarah is very respectful. She tries not to be bias in her own personal religious beliefs and has concern of not offending others.
Sarah Hadmack would ask her students if they had any questions during class and answers them in the best way she can.
She always tries to be considerate of what people believe. Religion is a can be a touchy subject and I think she did a very good job trying to not be biased and go through each religion fairly.
Sarah regularly reminded us that if we had further questions or inquiries we could always go visit her in her office. She was also really good at getting back with the students on a question she may not have been able to answer right away. Other teachers seems to forget a lot of times, but Sarah did not! Sarah frequently asked how we were doing in general not just about our academics.
Willingness to help you outside of class time and make suggestions on what to help you with.
sarah was excellent. I could tell she enjoys her work.. I learned alot about religion in other countries. And now i have compassion for people ot there that i didnt have before.I guess you could say i was educated.
Encourages Questions. Provides students with the opportunity to learn more about things that they are interested in outside of class time.
she made the class personal kind of like a family
helpful out side of class
Sarah always keeps you up to date with your grades and provides multiple extra credit oppurtunities.
She was always willing to speak to students outside of classroom time to discuss anything that they needed. She responded to emails rapidly and was always available when you needed her.
Talked to them privately.

By providing the information we need to understand the material we are studying and her passion in trying to get the students to participate in class discussions. Also by being available for one-on-one after class time.
Often asks if we understand and encourages questions.
She answered any and all questions that the students had to better understand the course and material. She also explained things in a matter that was easily understood by all. She made sure that no student was left behind no matter how far behind or lost that they were.
By asking if they haven't turned in any homework, missed classwork!
She answered all questions asked in class, offered extra credit opportunities, and took the time to review thoroughly for all tests.
She is one of the best teachers at WCC. She is extremely helpful and will have no problem going the extra mile to assist you.

21. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
wish i could take her classes and be able to graduate with just the experience of her classes... great energy and understanding everything she teaches with the great passion she has for this subject
She is an excellent teacher! She utalizes class time very well and encourages us to join in discussions.
most fun
She's a funny but smart teacher. She clearly knows her subject but likes to add humor in class to ease the tension.
Sarah is very thoughtful, energetic and passionate about religion and teaching. I've had many instructors at both HCC and WCC and in my opinion is one of the best instructors that i've had.
Sarah is very charasmatic, and knowledgable.
Great use of learning methods, quizzes, stems, crosswords etc...
She is very positive, definitely the perfect fit to the subject, since she is so expressive and animated. She helped us to learn, laugh, discuss, and grow throughout the semester. I was very thankful to have signed up for that course and to have her for a professor. She made learning and understanding much more interactive and i really enjoyed her class.
happy, excited. fun learning environment. greatest teacher i've had in a while.
She is very enthusiastic. She genuinely enjoys her class and subject, and was endlessly energetic even when we, her morning class, really just had the energy to blink. Even if you came to class in a dull mood, you couldn't really stay that way if you were paying any kind of attention to her. It made everything a lot more engaging.
She is very enthusiastic about the subject. I enjoy teachers who enjoy what they are teaching. Sometimes the games she plays seem a little childish, but after playing them it really helped me to remember things better. The group test was better than what I assumed. My group members were well prepared, and Sarah helped us get to that place. I enjoyed seeing the pictures and hearing stories of the trips you took to India. Hearing the stories from the source make the subject that much more interesting.
I loved having this instructor. I wish more professors had her love and excitmwnt for what they do. I also wish I would of found her before my last semester. I would have loved to take more classes from her.
she is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the subject that she teaches. she also holds experience in many areas of the subject she teaches. she is able to give not just an objective example but a subjective examples this greatly encourages students to look at both sides of the issue and research the topic more in depth.
Sarah is a wonderful teacher! She's easy to understand, is always willing to help and is completely fair about her grading.
Great teacher!!
An excellent teacher who understands the material and is helpful when planning you college career.
Professor Hadmack is very knowledgable with the counrty India. I appreciate her insight and look forward to having instructors like her in the near future at Windward Community College.
none
She is very kind to everyone, and I don't have much to complain about.
She is very knowledgeable in all the religions talked about in class and about other cultures in general. She is always telling her students about other lectures, movies and events pertaining to religion being held outside of class that we may not have known about until taking this class.
She made the class very fun and exciting. Very creative with her teaching.
She is an incredible teacher who clearly has a devout interest in religious studies, and an infectious enthusiasm. All viewpoints are represented in cases of possible debate, and all students' opinions are considered and discussed at length.
Sarah is the best Religion teacher I have ever had. She has tons of personal stories and experiences with different religions, especially the religions in India. She was always happy to be teaching us and in a great mood. She makes learning fun and urges us to be open minded, which is great!
Sarah is very energetic, and enthusiastic about what she is teaching. She conducts class in such a way that your attention is right there with her. She brings the subject matter to life by using different learning activities.
she really enjoys her subject and explains well.
She is a very enthusiastic teacher who makes learning fun and interesting.
She is very funny and makes the class interesting. I really enjoy the class.
I've enjoyed taking the Learning Community. I feel that I got out a lot from the class and I always found the class to be really enjoyable. Sarah made it enjoyable to learn and I feel that I have really benefited from it.
she is very enthusiastic and seems to enjoy teaching us very much
Ms. Hadmack uses very creative methods to foster student participation--you will learn. She makes the Energizer Bunny look like Rip Van Winkle.
I really enjoy Sarah's games and though the crossword puzzle on the test can be difficult... it's good. She smiles a lot and is kind.
I really enjoyed her teaching style. It was very easy to follow along and I think it had a great impact on how I learned information from the class. Her style made it fun to memorize events and details about those events.
Sarah speaks ckearly and explains very well. She knows the subject very well and could always explain it in detail. She never showed bias to certain religions. Sarah is super friendly and always has a smile on her face. She is easy to appraoch with questions and always available.
Great teacher, well liked.
Loved her class hope to take more classes with her as an instuructor. Might go into Religion as a major due to her great teaching.
Very sweet teacher. Knows her stuff. Open to all opinions. Great with discussion and questions.
dont change!
enthusiastic
Sarah is a wonderful instructor and she has a great passion for teaching!
She is so happy, energetic, and fun.
Very good techer
she is such a fun teacher!!!!
shes really funny!!
I think it would be less confusing if the homework and readings correspond with the work we do in class. We often would read and do homework about one religion while discussing another in class. I feel that we did certain details about the different world religions but I missed the overall big picture of what the essence of the different religions were all about.
She's very nice :)
She was super awesome!
she funny and fun to learn from
She was one of the most interesting and fun teachers i've ever had.
I do enjoy her different methods of reviewing for a test. Very creative.
i loved her enthusiasium!!!!!!!!
Excellent Instructor.
Her energy and passion, her wonderful sense of humor and her genuine concern for students to pass and enjoy the experience of Intro To World Religion.
She is a very good and passionate teacher. She is very nice and always happy. I enjoyed her class very much, her attitude is always happy.
She's a very smart, educated, kind and humorous teacher. She has an ability to teach in a way that some teachers have not. She can teach one of the most complex and maybe boring subject, but make it so interesting and understandable that it's so fun to learn. Her humor affects not only the course she's teaching but the people as well. Everyone seems to be involved in her discussions and class and it seems that everyone is on the same page because of her teaching skills.
She is an awesome teacher!
Nothing.
Shes very enthusiastic!!!
She is very humorous and always kept the class awake, but at the same time strictly business.

The reason I recommend her was because she has made the class enjoyable for me, but I also believe that she has made learning enjoyable for the other students as well.

Sure, she's a good teacher. Although sometimes I felt when she talked about Christianity she kind of talked down upon it. Like she said that to keep an open mind and for the most part she did but sometimes i felt like she didn't really like christians like out of all the religions that was the one that she didn't about the most. She is amazing though, and a great teacher and funny.

That is how learning is supposed to be.

kenny bergstrom
If you plan on canceling class, could you send the email the night before or at least before 6 am? Found that A little rough showing up to class and finding out it was canceled. Thank you for a wonderful interesting semester. I enjoyed this semester with you.
Thanks for a great class Sarah!
I wish you taught history because my teacher sucks! (:
Professor Hadmack is a very nice person.
none
Even though this class was required I enjoyed taking it. And it seems like my grades aren't the greatest, so I may see Sarah and Malia again.
Couldn't have asked for a better religion teacher!!
thank you so much!
I really like this class.
I really enjoyed the class and I hope to take some of the other religion classes that you offer!
Ms. Hadmack is a superb educator. She has great command of her subject and a professional but very approachable manner. If human cloning is ever legalized, start here. I particularly enjoyed the Community Learning environment (Hist/Rel), but it is probably due to the team of Ms. Hadmack and Ms. Lau Kong. These two excellent teachers compliment each other well, and I doubt such chemistry is commonplace.
Keep up the great work. You're doing an AWESOME job!!!
I really enjoyed this class. I enjoyed it even more with the learning community. It was very class orientated and allowed the students to participate and get real life application. I would like to take another class taught by Sarah and I hope I can find one that fits into my schedule.
Sarah has a natural gift for teaching! I had a great time in her class and was always focused when she taught.
Would like to take another class of hers.
Loved her class . I think her team teaching with Professor Lau Kong was the difference in learning world history and world religion. Connecting the two tell us alot about others as well ourselves.
Love the discussion time.
I loved this class and sarah is a wonderfull teacher that made coming to class fun. She was always so happy and it made my day to have a great teacher that was always smiling and laughing.
i enjoyed your class this semester
LOVED THE CLASS!!!
Great job!. Keep up the good work, and continue to encourage student input...(just make sure it doesnt go too far.)
Sarah deserves a promotion ;-}
Great teacher, glad I had her.

23. Other comments:
cheeee heee
I have always found it difficult to understand why religion classes slam Christianity. (This was my 2nd) None of them go after Buddhism, Islam, Taoism...is it because they are so passive or non-interesting enough to go after. Perhaps Christianity is just an easy target. Please think about the fact that you do have Christians in your class and sometimes it's tough being 'bludgeoned' after watching your athiest-biased videos. We're all people and all people screw up. Just wanted you to know how I felt.
I would like to see her be a little firmer with some of the students that were disrespectful.
none just that she is a very nice teacher..
:)

20. How did the instructor show concern for students?
The instructor encouraged students to participate in class, this heloed to ensure that everyone will learn.
I having been going through a lot of personal crises and Sarah was always there to listen and help me outside of class when I wasn't able to make it to class. I am very blessed to have her as my teacher.
She gives mid term grades, she has a website that contains information on the material such as what is expected, and she offers extra credit oppurtunites. Allows strageties for the exam such as working in group and notecard.
She treats everyone equally, she is fair and understanding. She wants you to think! She provides opportunities for this by asking question, and trying to get you to ask question of yourself and the world around us. This may one of the best lessons learned in college- thinking skills.
She is very charismatic and you can feel that she truly enjoys the subject matter. She finds different ways to teach us. i.e, think logs, game shows, group work.
She was always giving suggestions for assignments, letting us know about events that would help us with extra credit and such. She did her best to answer every question that was dished out to her, and never hesitated to admit if she didn't know the answer.
she ask if we need more time on slides, ask if we have questions, she knows us by name etc.
she gives chances but is a set amount that way students aren't always making excuses why they cant do homework or make it to class
SARAH HADMACK WAS GREAT........SHE SHOWED CONCERN BY ASKING ME IF EVERYTHING AS OKAY WHEN I HAD TO MISS CLASS FOR EMERGENCIES.
My friend missed a few classes and was behind a bit and she offered advice and ways in order for her to check up.
She gave us an opportunity for extra credit. Also coupons if we could not turn in an assignment on time.
Always friendly!
Yes, Sarah answers any question that a student may have and also takes care to listen in on any concerns that a student may have.
She gave us grade checks, she always asks to see if we have question, she used different teaching methods to ensure each students learning ways were satisfied.
Sarah enjoys teaching Religion and tries to do whatever it takes for students to like the subject. Religion could be a boring subject but she makes it fun. I have learned a lot in her class and is looking forward to taking other classes with her.
Religion is a complex subject where everyone in a room might have vast ideas and believes,Prof. Hadmack was careful in her approach and words to not offend anyone in their believes.
Sarah is willing to help her students in anyway she can.
walked around and checked if students understood materal
Sometimes she can be a little strict on late work for medical conditions which hurts grades but she's very nice to all her students.
She made sure that everyone doing good in her class and that they understood what she says. She even make sure that the test was hard she wanted to no and what she can do to fix the next test.
shows as she cares, gives us time to make up work and gain extra credit
SHe is always willing to answer questions.
By taking the time to listen to students and what they had to say whether they were asking questions, sharing stories or giving their input on the subject.
by answering questions promptly and effectively
The instructor maintains the classroom as a safe place where diverse ideas and viewpoints are acknowledged and allowed to be expressed.
Adjusts lesson to the speed at which the class can absorb all information
always there after class!
She is always engaged with the class. Observant of where we're at and always helpful.
She takes a moment before each slide to ask if we're caught up.
Sarah shows concern for her student and the everyone in the world as well. She simply embodies compassion, tolerance, and respect.
21. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Very enthusiastic teacher.
She is very funny and entertaining as well as BRILLIANT! She is so excited about religion and you can see it in the way she teaches. She really does care.
She is another one of my favoriate professors. Her classes are never boring and she is also enthuasiastic in teaching. I enjoy her group activites, trivia games and her reviews for the exam. She another professor that wants her students to succeed. I really love her joyful spirit. Professors like Sarah make me want to come to class and makes the classroom environment enjoyable and fun. I love her notebook because it made studying for test easier and more understandable. I do want to take more classes from Sarah. She is another professor that has her office door open and makes you feel very welcomed. I see a glow in her that is beautiful.
I really like her, I think she is great.
This was my favorite class this semester.
She's fucking awesome! Excuse the vulgar language, but she really is the best! She made the class fun, the material was always interesting and her enthusiasm for her subject shows every class. And I like that in a teacher.

She knows her stuff. Great religion teacher. I'm excited to have her as a instructor again next semester.

She's lively and funny and makes learning about religion interesting but she can be harsh over student's life problems they can't help.
She is really good and i like how she makes the class do group work. I am a hands on learner and a group learner so i learned the way i wanted to.
awesome teacher. great teaching
She knows her subject well and has lots of examples.
Her religion work book was a great help. She was real easy to follow during class lectures.
Sarah was awesome. I always looked forward to coming to class. She definitely kept things flowing along with Malia. She kept things interesting and we always had great discussions. I absolutely loved the people in the class and was so enthusiastic to be apart of discussions with them. Most classes students just show up, show no interest, and leave. We all learned to respect on another's opinions and really work together.
She's adorable! She's always so hyper and happy and it resonates throughout the classroom giving it a good learning vibe. And the fact that she's traveled and has first hand experience about what she's teaching is awesome. She might need to speak up a little and be a bit more strict with some students who interrupt her when she's talking.
down to earth and funny
She is very knowledgable, energetic, fun and enthusiastic
Awesome job with the 1st year of Holy History
shes great!
She is very knowledgeable and interested in what she's teaching. It's easy to stay engaged with what's going on in class when your teacher is happy teaching the subject!
She is very energetic.

20. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She made class interesting. I really enjoyed all the assigned reading, class discussions and group work.
She is always open for questions inside and outside of class. Sarah makes sure students understand before moving on. She also gives great presentations, visual aids, and lectures.
She is just generally very sensitive to the feelings of each student. If a student gives even an "off the wall" answer, she thanks them for their effort and may tell them something like "that is not quite right" or asks if another student can add to the first students input--she never embarrasses a student. She has a great moral heart that provides a great moral example of how a good person lives, of how a good faculty member should function in the system.
She was always fair. She new we were behind on the syllabus so rather than rushing through the sections she made sure the sections we did not go over were not in the test.
She reminds us of what work is due, she wants us to do well, when a teacher wants you to do well, it drives to want to do well for them
I see her working with individuals who might need extra help. She's also quick to compliment any idea/ opinion a student might have.
She takes the time to explain confusing concepts and she is very personable which helps to not be afraid to ask her questions. She also makes herself available for questions outside of class and you don't feel like you're imposing on her time.
mandatory meetings
Asks for questions. Makes sure students are clear in their understanding. Meets with students outside of class for help. Gives student extra credit opportunities and available resources.
She was open to our questions and involved the whole class. she also had a conference with us for our research papers so we could get the best grade possible.
She will tend to meet each student to show his/her progress to make sure you are on the right track and If you are not she will find any way possible to incourage and help you along the way.
she will move at the students pace
Her schedule is ridiculous, but she still encourages conferences for research papers, and her criticisms and insights are great. Many extracurricular activities, like trips to monasteries and Indian art exhibits. Her concern for students is genuine, unlike many teachers whom feign interest. Upon hearing that I got a DUI, she wrote me a personal email scolding me for it. Her concern for students goes beyond class material, which is rare.
21. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I love having an instructor who really knows their subject and is enthusiastic about it. It makes it enjoyable to sit through lecture when you know your teacher really wants to be there as well.
She's great!
Top drawer! Dynamic, spirited, happy, pleasant, just makes the classroom a place where students can look forward to being, learning, and engaging in worthwhile discourse.
Sarah is the best instructor I've had.
I like her. Thank you
great teacher. inspiring.
She's a very enthusiastic instructor. She has a lot of energy and she makes even the most boring chapters exciting.
she explains things very well, makes it interesting and since the subject was very foreign to me she was able to help me understand just by her strategy of teaching the subject
Awesome instructor! Makes class interesting rather than just regular lectures. Variation of learning styles are accommodated. Is lively, funny, and relatable.
shes really bubbly and funny. it made class fun to attend when you know that the teacher is happy to be there.
This instructor is far the best teacher I have ever had. She makes the subject very interesting to learn and uses examples with games to learn.
she is awesome!
Sarah Hadmack is incredibly learned, and she shows genuine interest in religion; when you take her class, you know that she loves the material. She's charming, relatable, and incredibly amiable. I've been at WCC for three years, and I consider her classes among the most interesting and enriching.
22. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes of course!
Yes, I would recommend her because she makes the subject matter very interesting.
Yes, absolutely! For reasons already mentioned and for the opportunity to learn about other peoples, cultures, and religions from a really caring and remarkable teacher.
Yes. She knows her stuff!
Yes, she is knowledgeable, fun, kind, and interesting.
yes, because she has a way of breaking apart and clarifying complexed ideas for all to understand, which is essential in studying religion.
Definitely. Her classes are always very fun but also informative. I feel like I've learned a lot after taking her classes, and she has a very balanced amount of homework.
definetly, its an interesting subject hard to learn but she is able to help you understand. shes got her stuff down
Yes...Sarah is a delight. I love her teaching style and she is open and available to the students. She puts everyone at ease with her easy going personality. I highly recommend her classes to all my friends.
Definitely. One of the best instructors I've ever had!
yes definetley.
Yes! This instructor knows his/her subject very well. She shows you respect as if your a fellow friend.
yes because you will learn alot from her
Absolutely. She's great. The amount of knowledge you take away from her classes is immense. The material is challenging and abstract, qualities that many other classes don't deliver on. At the end of the semester, Sarah feels less like a teacher and more like a friend. A very, very smart friend.

When one don't understand the materials she will try to explain it in a different way.
opportunities to improve on bad grades. Help for improvement also.
Sarah showed great interest in hearing from all her students, and opened many venues for class participation.
She constantly emphasizes the importance to ask questions and voice opinions.
She was willing to meet after class with students
making sure we all grasped the material.
Sarah always made herself available to talk to outside of class, whether it was for answering questions or reiterating something that was talked about in class.
The instructor would notice when we missed class and would always be more than happy to help us get caught up. She would also give us more than enough time to ask questions to ensure that everyone had asked all the questions they needed to ask.
The instructor does try to get to everyone and their questions. If anything happened outside of class or anything else class related she does try to follow up on it.
Through her general interest in both issues facing us as students, as well as her willingness to lend an ear when personal issues were causing problems for us.
Paying attention to and respecting all the students ideas and views.
Concern for the students? She... lets us turn in our think logs late? But no, this instructor definitely wants her students to succeed and learn, and understand the subject matter. She is very easy to talk to, and very thorough when it comes to explaini
Was concerned about late assignments.
Sarah was always eager to answer questions and make sure that her students thoroughly understood the subject matter.
Mrs. Hadmack was always available whenever I needed her or was quick to return phonecalls and emails.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
nothing!
she is just very enthusiastic about her subject.
I especially like the reading quizes, think logs and portfolio assignments as they created opportunities for reflection.
I like how all her assignments were a mix and match of different activities.
i very much liked the motivational and encouraging atmosphere. i believe that creative assignments in class with colored markers should be reserved for elementary school
The class was fun and the discussions were interesting and also fun.
She was never predictable. she made sure we participated.
I didn't expect the class discussions to get so intense. Sometimes it was difficult to engage in conversations regarding religion because i'm not very familiar with any religions.
I liked that the instructor was very organized, but allowed time for the students to explore new ideas too. For example, if we were talking about the Buddhist religion and we had a question about Tibetan Buddhism, she would take time to explain it even if
I'm not one to talk much so I didnt like the class and group discussions too much which was everyday. Other than that she is very enthusiastic about teaching and getting us to learn, very well planned out and student oriented.
I enjoyed the way class discussions and debates were encouraged. I felt they gave everyone an oppurtunity to understand the concepts and themes being displayed, and since she encouraged everyone to contribute their thoughts, we had a complete understandin
She know the subject well
I'd say the personality of this teacher is pretty genuine. She's a very happy and energetic person, and it really shows in the class. It makes the subject matter very interesting, and even some of the more depressing topics that came up in class were ea
Wouldn't try to freeze us by turning down thermostat so low.
I really enjoyed compiling the portfolio assignment she gave early on in the year; it allowed for ample introspection as well as a conctructive creative outlet as did the majority of her assignments.
She made us realize that not everybody feels the same way about stuff like the soul or an afterlife. I had never really considered that.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She's funny and the class debate was very Interesting.
She smiles a lot.
Sarah approaches religious studies with a sensitive and open mind, and encourages her students to do the same.
She is really nice and has a cheery attitude.
very cheerful and wonderful teacher, triggered a lot of constructive criticism and reasoning in students
Geat teacher made class fun and creative.
very impressed with her dedication.
i appreciate her willingness to listen to everybody's opinion with complete objectivity. Religion is a
I liked how cheery and friendly she was. She made sure no one felt like she was cold toward them, and I also liked how she wasn't afraid to joke around too. It really made the class much more interesting, though she was very careful not to offend anyone
I enjoyed her class. She does try to get everyone involved.
Overall, she is and excellent teacher, and I will be recommending her classes to others.
She's very witty, don't mess with her.
She's really happy? Like... REALLY happy. But in a good way of course!
Not boring at all. I don't like group activities but many of them like Silent Socratic dialogues were interesting.
Sarah Hadmack was an excellent teacher.
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, if they one to have a class that they would like to learn and enjoy.
Yes. I learned a lot and I I know other students will get a lot out of it as well.

Yah, She's cool.
Yeah I'd recommend this instructor. I mean, why not? It was a fun class, and the instructor definitely made it that way. Coming into this class, I thought it would be really boring and dry, I mean, it was the study of religion after all. But I think I

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She showed concern by individualy checking in with students throughout the semester to see how they were doing with the material and in general.
She had good office hours and would really listen to what the student had problems with.
she made sure that everyone understood the topic if not she gave time after class for ?..
set up appt. with students regarding research paper and stressed to visit her at her office hours if we needed help and even returned emails to me when i needed her help!
she was always open after class for questions and help.
Talking to them after class or office hours
She offered help outside of class
She had office hours and if we could not make it for some reason she would arrange a time so that she could address our concerns. She always asked if we had any questions or needed clarification.
Shes always making sure we understand the material. If that means drawing pictures on the board, breaking things down, whatever the case- she'll do it. Shes always available to chat with during her office hours. AND shes really good with email communicati

I loved that she was always so energetic and excited about sharing what she knew about Indian religions and that she was always trying to connect our lives with the material so that it make more sence.
I really like the enthusiasim of each lesson and the equality shared bettween instructor and student.
she is around the same age group as the students in the class. so it was easier to undersand her and she was able to relate.
that she was very friendly... made learning fun..
i liked how you could be as creative as you wanted when doing her assignments. It was fun to be able to turn homework into an fun experience and at the same time learn through expressing information in any form.
I liked how it didnt seem as boring as some of my other classes in the past.
I really liked the fact that we did presentations to teach eachother about the different topics.
She is very enthusiastic about her religion classes and that makes it exciting for her students. She made learning fun and made the subject understandable for her students. She incorporated games and activities to take a break from conventional lectures
I loved this course. The wide variety of learning methods. It was a writing intensive course but she gave us a lot of freedom to let our imaginations run wild. Which personally motivated me EVEN MORE to strive.
