I liked that she was very well prepared for every class and had very clear instructions for assignments.

A true inspiration for this student who needed direction. She gave me the courage and skillsto create.
She is an excellent English teacher, and I'm glad she was able to give me a great learning experience in college.
I had fun in this class. I enjoy poetry and was very pleased to finally have a class revolving around poetry.
She has been my only English teacher at WCC and I;m glad I stuck with her. She makes things very easy to understand.
24. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
ABSOLUTELY!!! I tell everyone I see on campus to take Eng 271
I would definitely recommend Janine Oshiro to other students and already have been doing so. Her assignments are very clear and simple to understand.
Yes. If you're interested in poetry, she knows her stuff.
25. Other comments:
I used to hate poetry but no longer. I love poetry!
I love writing poetry now and I'm glad I learned how to write different forms of poetry.

21. How did the instructor show concern for students?
talks
She always had time after class was over to discuss anything with students.
When I was absent, she expressed concern for my well-being.
taking the time to explain and go over topics in class
She took time to schedule conferences with you if you wanted it.
always talked to students one on one
making sure student understand whats going on in class.
She asks if we are okay or if she can help us with anything. She is willing to help us.
She is an amazing teacher. She made sure everyone understood what she was talking about and was there if we were confused. She develpoed personal relationships with each and every one of us.
She always has appointments available to meet with students regarding any assignments.
Being very understanding about work load, and dedicating so much time outside of class to individual meetings with students. Also, the comments on papers and on anything that was turned in gave the impression that she really reads the work, thinks about it, and responds insightfully.
She narrowed down and walked students through what they were having troubles with especially concerning essays.
No matter what level the student is at, she helps them improve.
She takes the time to hear our feedback and stimulates our minds by analysing our responses. She engages the entire class with feedback for peers. That i like very much. She creates a well rounded environment of care and concern for our learning. She wants the best for her students and works well with us in getting our assignments in to her.
taking time to meet with us outside of class time if we needed it.
She is accommodating to the needs of the students. She always is available to ask questions and give thoughtful advice. On a personal level, she showed empathy and concern for her students by following up with them if they expressed that they were in a personal crisis.
She explained at the beginning of the semester that she is always available for students. She lists her office hours on the syllabus and is even available at other times. She met with me on her lunch break because I was having a hard time organizing my research paper :) She is very organized and structured and expects her students to do the same. (In a way this is kind of unrealistic :( ) She has a very caring personality and will go above and beyond for her students. She wants them to succeed not only in her class, but in life as well.
She made sure to check up on you if you were missing something or needed help with anything.
Spends time with students individually so that they can improve their essays
She allowed the students to stay in after class to ask some extra questions.
Janine was very helpful with students and as she would return back revised essays she helped the students by going over the content that needed to be worked on. Although she had a set schedule for when work was due, she was very understanding of late work and essays.
Always talks to us individually and makes sure we turn in our best work on time.
She offers help during her office hours and encourages that her students see her after she gives feed back on our essays.
22. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
I dislike all the online work very unnecessary!
She was very inventive in the ways she presented writing assignments. It allowed for more creative thought, rather than just seeing it as an assigned task.
She was very enthusiastic about the subject in a way that made me want to learn more.
I think the sentence bingo should not hold as great of importance as it does, also part of it might be better off started in class as a group and then continued and/or finished later as part of homework or extra credit.
I enjoyed the free discussions we had when discussing homework, articles and the last novel we did in class.
I disliked the many excercises dealing with grammar and punctuation. I liked that there were lots of group projects so it was interactive.
she was a very good hands on teacher.
I like the challenge she given us.
She respected us as humans, she didnt just look at us as students. She gave us assignments and topic assignments that made us think about life and question our reality. She had many activities planned that were interesting and i looked forward to her class.
I liked how the course was very interactive with the students, especially in the ending of the semester.
There was a lot of work and expectations, but she also gave extra time if needed.
I liked how she broke her own instructions down further.
organized schedule, and reminders of what is due
Her detailed instructions took a little getting used to, likely, because i was not prepared for that level of intensity and detail but also because of my last semester's English 100 course, which i had to withdraw from due to extenuating circumstances, that i was expecting something more similar to the previous professionals style of teaching. I wasn't ready for this plus i experienced a crisis again in this semester, but i have learned a great deal of valuable stuff that i will be using for always. I appreciated her material and lessons. It has taught me what i was hoping to learn about writing. I grateful i was referred to her.
i thought that the amount of work was excessive.
I loved the interaction the most. I knew the students from English better than any course. This opened up for thoughtful, judgment free discourse on the subjects. I didn't like the final book choice, Beloved, because it was written in a way that was counter to everything we learned. I feel like our time would have been better suited had we studied a book with effective writing techniques. On the other hand, she made Beloved, as depressing as the book was, a point of spirited discussion.
She is very structured and organized which helped me tremendously. I have OCD in certain aspects of my life and her way of teaching is very easy for me to get adjusted to. She tells you what is expected from the beginning. She is very personable. She will work with you if you need help, extensions,etc. She makes English 100 a class worth taking.
I like how she was very into the subject matter.
I liked that she would come to you as you typed and talk about how to improve and your writing.
I liked how she explained everything in a clear way and gave us some options on topics to write about.
I liked that Janine was very open to other people's ideas and interpretations of the work/content.
She was always enthusiastic and happy to teach class.
I liked and disliked class disscusions. I disliked them because I do not like speking in front of people with all eyes on me, but the class discussions are actually great because it liberates students to actually share ideas and ask questions which I think is very important in a class.
23. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Needs to give less work or balance them out better!
I hope she continues to utilize the forums on Laulima for students to post their work.
She is a very pleasant teacher and I liked showing up for class.
Janine is a great teacher. She really loves her subject.
She is a good teacher.
nothing
She is awesome and im grateful i got to be a student in her class.
She's a great teacher.
She seems to genuinely care about her students.
She is a great teacher especially for those who need extra guidance when writing.
great class, best eng 100 i had out of 3
She's a great professor and has concern for her student's success. She cares about her material and what she is imparting to her students, past, present and future. She engages trust in us for her, which makes doing the assignments worthwhile.
she is a great teacher and i learned a lot but i hope i pass because i dont want to take this again
Wonderful, caring, and very inquisitive. I knew from week one that she would be a great teacher.
Awesome teacher! Takes her job very personal, which is a good thing for students. She is not only a great teacher, she is a great person all around.
She's and excellent person and teacher.
You're the best teacher!
She is a very happy person.
24. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
No,To much unnecessary work
Yes, because she helps to make writing fun and interesting. You almost forget about the amount of work you end up writing over the semester.
Yes because she is a very understanding teacher and is very fair with coursework.
if they can handle the work load yes
Yes, but they need to commit themselves to work hard. You can't slough off in a class taught by Janine and you wouldn't want to anyway.
Yes, cause she was a good teacher.
yes. she provides a fun class.
YES because she teaches and challenges students which is a good development for college students.
Yes i would!
I would recommend her because she seems very charismatic.
Yes. I would let them know that they will work hard, but learn a lot.
Yes, because she gives instructions well.
yes, makes english 100 seem easy
Yes. Because i know they will learn what we need to learn to become great writers, if that is our ambition.
yes and if they did decide to take her class i would tell them not to fall behind.
Yes and no. I would say yes to the abstract thinker, poet, and creative minded person and no to the person that requires regimented instruction and oversight.
Yes. She makes the class enjoyable and easy to follow. Just don't fall behind in the homework, otherwise it's really hard to catch up.
Yes, because she cares.
Yes! She is a good first time college student teacher. She is very helpful and willing to answer any questions.
I would recommend Janine Oshiro because she is a very good teacher that helps introduce students to the college experience. She even goes over books that talk about college, so the student is learning about what they are experiencing.
Yes, her class is good.
I have told my friends that she gives a ton of work which can get very stressful but she is a very good teacher. If you are commited, you can and will learn a lot from her. The work may be a lot but it is very well worth it.
25. Other comments:
nice teacher,too much online work
N/A
some of the work load seems to be unnecessary and a bit excessive for this level of class.
I thoroughly enjoyed this class and the way Janine taught it. She had a great way of making students feel that their contributions were valued.
I think I would have gotten more out of the book Beloved if it had been spread out a bit more over the semester. It is like poetry, and requires a lot of digestion to understand the plot. I would have liked reading maybe 20 pages per week over the 15 weeks and doing a discussion once a month. I just think that would have given me more time to digest the material than reading it all at one time, sometimes in 100 page blocks. Thats my suggestion for the next time.
I would repeat her course over the term of my college career and in fact, i intend to take her English 22 course along with her other higher level English classes. I appreciate her passion in this field and her passion to put on Out Loud in the Library giving exposure and opportunity to her students. To see your professor involved in public community activity and events that stimulate growth in the field is inspiring and motivating. i grateful i had her as a writing coach and will continue to recommend and repeat her courses.
thank you for all your help with writing this semester, overall i really enjoyed this class.
Wish I tried harder!!
You rock!

she will help her students in any way she can
Janine Oshiro showed concern to her students by letting us feel welcome. The first day she basically told us to relax and that we can call her by her first name. She said that because she knew that her students were wondering what to call her. Do we call her mrs. or professor. She also told us that she understands that college can be hard.
She is a very good instructor. knows her subject and uses instructonal material to present in class. She accomodates students if they have question and need clarification.She uses relevant and motivates student by way application what we have discussed. Her teaching strageties and tools in teaching her students are effective to student success in learning.
she showed alot of respected for all of her students in the class. She will help everyone with whatever the students needs help on.
JAnine showed concern for her students by always asking if we have questions. She would tell us where her office was and if we ever needed help we can let her know and she will have a meeting with us.
Janine is honestly one of my most favorite teachers here at windward simply because she cares about her students. I am not such a organized student so she has given me a lot of help this semester from meeting with me to go over sentence types, to lending me her book, to giving me opportunities to make up several assignments, to just being a sweet teacher. She didn't intimidating so its easy to go to her for help and she is always more than willing to take the time to help her students do their best. I really enjoyed having Janine Oshiro for a teacher. I wish she could be my English teacher every semester.
she would help us the best way she could. she gave her students motivation
She would let us have extra time to complete due work, just so that we can pass the class.
She help students to learn more,like for me those appointments were making it really help me a lot. Janine is always willing to give her time and effort for students to learn and I honestly experienced it.
She gives us time to schedule one on one meetings with her to tell us what we need to do to improve our grade and answer questions we have or help us if we need help.
She is always there and when she notices that you havent been in class she calls you, emails you, and ask you how you are doing in class.
Asks how we're all doing.
She gave us a lot of time to finish our homework. She gave us freedom in our due dates, I really appreciated that. It was not stressful at all and yet she still challenged is in a good way.
We had to talk o her after class or make a appointment in her office
22. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
I like how she made the class learn about other peoples belief and studies.
She gave us students the time to learn new but old skills over again and made sure that we understood what each method was used for in the time of need.
I like the way she teaches the class about sentences type. She also make other edit their peers writing paper which I think helps in the writing process. I also like the way she makes us write about our goal and the function of education, so instead of just writing, we're learning about what's important in life as we write a paper.
I like all the details and activity's she sued to get us into the subject and understand the lesson.
I can honestly say I dont have anything I disliked about my class with Mrs Oshiro. What I liked the most was her enthusiasm and how she made herself available to the students at all times.
She was just overall a very good teacher, fair, and understanding.
I like that Janine does one on one to help student know what they are have difficulty in and how they can fix what they are doing a lot mistakes
She is full of ideas, whenever i come to her to ask question, she would answer me clearly and specifically. She liked to be asked. She is a good example of motivation.
I like how she will take the time to help you
I like the way that even though I didn't turn in all my assignments. She still had time to sit me down to tell me that I'm not doing good in her class. I felt like she actually cared how her students do in her class. Some teachers could care less on their students performances.
What I like about her is being on time and willing to acoomodate students who needs help before and after class. I have improve so much for being a student in her class.
Janine really taught me well. i can really learn from her. i like how she gave us a schedule on when work is due. i like when teachers does that for me because it really helps me out.
I really liked how janine was so open and encouraging about english with us.
She did give us a whole lot of work but i know it was all to help us so it wasn't so bad.
i like how clear she teaches her students.
I like how she explained everything clearly.
I don't have dislike, but I only have likes and that is when she's teaching me a lot and at the same time we make appointment for her to help me with my stuffs.JANINE is a good teacher and I could not ask for more.
I like when she makes our class really fun and show how concern she is in every students.
I do like her class very much, she is always there for her students and she brings the best out in many of us. I mean she has confidents in us and teaches us what she knows will help us better out writings. I really wished she was teaching Eng.22 i would deffinately take her class in a heart beat. But i loved her class and it really did help me on improve my writing.
She was always interested in our opinion on what we were discussing.
I liked that she had passion with her teaching. I could tell she loves English. It was very moving.
yeah she really taught us in a good way or her method.
23. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I think she can help students who are welling to help them self.
I enjoyed her class and also am sad that I didn't have the time to open my mind about English with her.
I think Janine is a good example for those who are struggling in their Englis. If there's any students struggling in English, I would tell them get help from Janine.
A very punctual and approachable teacher that demonstrated great professionalism at all times.
I wish I could have her as my English 100 teacher.

21. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She takes time to help students who need help
Wanting them to be able to complete their papers in a timely matter but gives them The opportunity to make it up if something happens that they are not able to make it on time
always available for those who needed assistance, and very understanding of personal matters.
In class, Janine is very professional. We have a lot of class discussion and Janine will allow everyone to voice their opinion and no matter how ludacris or far out the students opinion, she allows them to not only voice it but suggests to take a closer look at it. She's very fair and not judgmental at all. I have personally heard and seen her go to different students and offer additional suggestions of help in areas they need strengthening in.
Janine always comes to students individually and has a private conversation with them if she feels that there is a problem. If she wants us to make certain revisions to our essays, she tells us what they are and she explains why what we did was wrong. She tries to connect to each student on a personal level.
offered conference times
Takes her time to make sure students understand how to write the material. She is always willing to do one on one with the student to help with the assignment if they are struggling, and is also always willing to answer questions.
22. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
i liked the course, it was fun.
Everything
I love the way she has her syllabus organized and ready to go
Talks about life in general, a lot of the assignments were related to past issues that we were forced to confront as students. Definitely a class that encouraged individual growth!
Janine is an out of the box teacher. She allows for creativity and expression. The material she had us read and discuss was mainly about racism, a very real topic that still exists today. She has brought to the forefront a topic that few dare to look at. It really opens up your eyes to the world beyond our little island.
I liked that we was able to discuss things that we read in the class.
I especially liked the way that she assigned the readings. She made it so that there was a reasonable amout to read and most of the books that she assigned were really good to read. Although, I really didn't like "They say, I say." I especially didn't like the peer review. I hated printing out 3 copies of each essay, and each was 5-7 pages long. Printing is expensive and not all the students are on the same writing and understanding level, so a good essay might get a bad peer review because some students just don't understand. I also really didn't like wasting the first few weeks getting to know every student's name. I understand that it's good, but I feel like there are better things to focus on. I also didn't like group work. I think that group work is just an excuse for socialization and doesn't really get any work done.
Hard grader, but helps in the learning process.
Everything is organized, and taught step by step. It is good how the students are able to have some choice in their subject for the assignment, so that they actually have some interest in the assignment they are doing. Everything is straight forward, and time is utilized nicely in class.
23. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
she's a great teacher!
She great!
She is a great teacher.
Great teacher!
I learned so much from this class and I truly believe that Janine has made me a better writer. She brought to my attention a style of writing that I had been doing for many years and helped me correct it. No other teacher caught it but her. There is something about her class that is engaging and fun. the one thing i really liked is that she had us get to know the other classmates. Not only did that bring our class closer together but it's the only class that a teacher cared enough to make us do. This is the only class that i have that i know all the students names. Now, i make it a point to get to know everyone in my other classes.
Very organized.
I like Janine as a person. I think that she feigns happiness, though, and she indulges into certain students too much. She really is nice and she is a good teacher, but the fact that she lets students pretty much run her over isn't that good. She seems as if she is always trying to cover her fear of something. I think that if she voiced her irratiation that she would have more respect from the students that are waiting for her to stand up to the stupid kids trying to run the class.
always has students on their toes on what to write. Love the schedule that goes day by day
An excellent teacher! patient, and understanding. Always willing to help a student. She also takes her time to explain again what she had gone over in class.
24. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
yes, because she explains things well.
Yes she is so fun and excited to teach
Yes highly
Strongly recommended, the work load is a little intense but well worth it.
I would absolutely recommend this class. Janine's class should be the mandatory English 100 class. She is an excellent teacher. She's fair, has a sense of humor, has the ability to inspire students and is a true asset to Windward Community College. I wish she taught other classes.
Yes, For those that like the challenge and teachers that are organized. This is the type of class for them.
I would recommend Janine to other students, but I would hope that the students taking English 100 will have the ability to understand that it is a college level course and that reading and writing is a necessary skill. I think that if the students were more serious that she would have a superb class. The material is good, and her style is good, but some of the students, at least in my class, don't take her seriously and really bring the class down.
Yes and No. Yes only if they like english No if they donʻt. Not sure if they would succeed in her class
Yes I would. A student would definitely learn something from her class, as things are explained clearly, and organized step by step, so there is a lot of opportunity to practice, and improve in writing.
25. Other comments:
First English course that I actually WANTED TO ATTEND!!
I really do like Janine. She is funny and interesting and she has great taste in music. I just think that she is very passive with her class and that brings it down a little. I think that dumb students kind of over run her class and make it difficult for the ones that really want to learn. So, I guess that the problem I have isn't with Janine or the course, but the students who shouldn't take the class that do.
A hard, but enjoyable class!

21. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Yes she does
she will ask the students if they need extra help they can go see her after class to get extra help or see the SI instructor
Unknown?
not much
I really dont know, she needs to slow her flow down.
She held meetings to see where our progress was at.
Janine is such a blessing in my life... Janine has always always showed concern for the students... If a student didn't understand or needed help she would always say meet after class and we will go over it or come to my office.
maybe less assignments, theres other classes to concentrate on too :/
When ever i needed any questions for how i was doing, she was always there for me.
Janine helped the students when they needed help. If the students did not understand something she tried her best to help them understand.
She always showed attention to a student in a discussion or you could see her after class.
make up work.
22. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
She is very good teacher and easy to understand.
I lovedher teaching methods.How she explained things clearly.
Janine was very nice and explained in detail how to do your work and she will always ask if we had any questions and that if we needed extra help we can make an appointment to see her after class or another time
She is very good at explaining and made it easier for me to learn!
She was very concerned about how her students did their assignments.
never like anything
I didn't like that she gave us the same work as ENG 22, I think that's kind of lame.Like she didn't want to print to things or something.
She explained the material into more detail if any student didnt understand
I loved the way she taught us how to learn our sentence types that and also the different types of paragraphs. To me that was something very learningful...
she's alright. she's tough in her work. she follows her schedule though.
She is very intelligent, and teaches her classes in a very point by point way.
I liked the examples she used when explaining how to do a certain assignment.
I didn't like that we had to write paragraphs on a book that we have read. It's not about the writing part, she doesn't give us enough time time to read a book to do the next week paragraphs and the next week.
to much home work, its very over whellming.
23. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
nothing
She is a wonderful teacher.
Janine is a very nice teacher and seem to care about the students and helped out a lot
Best english teacher!
I feel Janine was a great teacher and I feel she is genuine in her teaching abilities.
she good as a person
She needs to take her time and make sure everyone gets the idea of what she is teaching before she moves on.
Excellent professor
Janine is an awesome teacher and I woulldn't have it any other way
she's awesome.
Very happy to have her teach me English 19, and she is a very bright teacher, and calm person.
She is a great teacher.
She knows her stuff, but she can be very demanding on students
make your class/matirial easeir to comprehend.
24. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes I would.
Yes, I will definitely recommend her class to other students because she took time out to help the class to understand anything we didn't know. She explained to us until we understood.
Heck yes, she knows about her subject and makes it very easy to understand.
Yes, she is a very positive teacher for a freshman who is back in school after a long time.
no
No not if they want to struggle on there first time to college, or just have a bad experience the first year. Its my first year and she was one of the worst teachers I had. She went to fast and she never really made that much sense.
Yes, very interested professor.
Yes I would recommend her to anybody who is willing to learn and ready to buckle down and actually do some work...
sure, why not
Yes, she knows what she is talking about.
Yes, because by taking her class you will learn how to improve your writing and reading skills.
yes, she is a good teacher and she knows her ENGLISH!!!
yes if you only have 1 to 2 classes.
25. Other comments:
none.
Hope to have her again one day.

21. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She would explain everything in detail, she would always ask "does everyone understand or is there any questions that she could answer?" She always did our 5 at 5 when class starts, to refresh us on topics discussed.
Made it easy to turn in work even if late.
she assest each assignment according to the classes performance level and gives ample amount of time to turn in assingments.
Janine showed her concerns for students by setting up conference dates to go over our writing and asking us if anything is unclear that we would like to be clarified. Also she reads and corrects our drafts and gives it back to us so that we can fix the mistakes she found and turn in a final copy into her.
Ms. Oshiro takes her time to plan out things nice, neat, and easy to follow for her students. She gives good suggestions, and is willing to answer any question. She gives her all, to help the student understand the subject.
Encouraged students to schedule one on one meetings with her so that she could give them specific help in the are that they struggled in.
She has appointments on Sundays, she offers much of her time to students who are trying to become better writers... She goes above and beyond when trying to create a successful class and a single successful student
She is open towards her students interest in excelling in their education when it comes towards challenging times.
By going through with us over and over again if we didn't understand.
She's very smart and knows what she's doing she likes to make sure were ahead of the game and getting all our work done
By giving extra credits if you were behind or failing.
She explained any questions we had
She allowed meeting times to go over questions or graded work.
She meets with you 3 times a semester.
She was always on time to class.
She is willing to help her students ether during class, or after class. she will allow you to set up a meeting time, so you can meet with her in the class or in her office. If you are having a hard time with an assignment she is willing to help you as much as she can. why does this have so much words that is more than any of our assignments.
She never gave up on any of the students in her class. She worked with us and gave ideas that could help us. She always made sure we understood what she was teaching us.
She ask us if we need help.
She was willing to meet with a student outside of class by making appointments
She has told us numerous times that we can come in to see her during her office hours and she would help us with our work and answer any question we may have.
She helped us understand any faults within our own writing.
She offers as many one on one sessions with her, and she is more than willing to give help when needed.
She's willing to help students with assignments, both in and out of class.
She makes meeting with us to go over things that she or we are concerned about
By making it required to meet with her outside of class at least once to go over work. She also gives extra time on tests for those who need it and lets us know how we are doing in the class and what we need to get done.
took time to help outside of the class
22. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
She is very detailed and shows concern for her pupils, she would ask if there was anything more she could do to help me.
Very organized
What i liked about Janine is her organization and how she literally gives us a step by step overlook on how she wants our work to be turned and how to do it.
For this course, I like everything about it. I like how Ms. Oshiro organizes her lessons so that they build on each other, little by little, and step by step. I feel that to learn things step by step, it is the best way for a student to learn when he/she has a hard time grasping the concept.
Gave very helpful hand-outs. Told you step-by-step on each stage of writing a paper. Gave very clear, informative step-by-step information. Also gives a great, easy to follow syllabus that you can refer to throughout the year which clear informs you about what she will cover in class and what you should have ready to turn in.
I liked the revision and recomendation part of the class. After writing a draft ( the best draft we could) we would give it to her and she would not grade it but revise it) this i believe made me a better writer because I knew what she would be looking for after i turned in the draft and she revised it. I would either fix puncutation or over haul the whole essay. It made me a better writer because she made us understand what is and what is not a good better. She was great
I really enjoyed her style and technique of teaching. She found fun ways to get us involve and actually enjoy learning about sentence types. She is an exceptionally talented English teacher. Because I value organization and structure, Janine is a prime example of a well-structured instructor. I think UH should consider making Janine's technique the only technique to teach students English.
I love the methods that she taught me about note taking which did help me in a great deal.
I liked the way she taught the class. She was very clear about her instructions.
I like that she's very smart and really wants us to Learn
I liked the pace that she gave us. I had a hard time communicating with her.
I liked her step by step instruction to complete a project. She really helped with the basics of writing.
I liked her teaching method, I did not like some unnecessary worksheet given.
I really loved her class. how she took time to teach our class. She is very patient with everyone and she is very easy to understand. If you are not clear with a problem, she will take her time and help that person. What I also liked about her class is she makes it fun to learn and it made me want to learn more about the subject. I have taken Englidh a few times and this is the first time that I have learned a lot and really enjoyed.
She made sure that you under stand the assignment when she gave it to the class. if you didn't you could talk to her after class.
I loved how she always listens to what we need to say, and she really shows a lot of concern for each of us in class.
I enjoyed how we were able to do class activities and hands on that helped me to better understand the work. I was a bit intimidated because I didn't really understand in the beginning. But after we went over than I was able to understand what we went over which was too late for me. Since we already moved onto a new chapter.
What I really liked was that she made it easy for me to understand the material
I like how we got points for coming to class and how we had many group activities.
The way she would go over things.
Her style of teaching is very structured and has purpose.
I liked who she's alway welcoming when she enters class.
I like that she cares about english so much, I've never learned this much in an english class
Well english was never my greatest subject so I already did not expect much from the class, but I did learn a few new things and I liked the way we worked on our final essay.
she is easy going and fun to listen to.
23. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Thanks for being a great professor and encouraging me to push myself and want to learn more.
I enjoyed her class and how she plays music before she starts. It really sets the mood of the class.
One of those great professors. I would love to take a English class under her wonderful teaching style. Very diligent, encouraging, I am, along with many other students are lucky to have Ms Oshiro as his/her teacher.
She is the best teacher i had this semester! She genuinely cares about student success and she is very knowledgeable in her subject. Also, always willing to help!
She loves to write and it rubs off on her students. She challenge us daily to be on time by doing a 5 at 5 which I think made a big difference in one stuents attendance. The little things she seems to create just work to perfection and build on one another, making a great class room that produces great writers.
She's a very good teacher. She made sure that we are on top of our studies and I started to love reading again from the reading assignments that she gives us.
That Shes a awesome teacher and thanks for everything
She's a good instructor.
Janine is thourough in her teachings leaving little question of what she expects out of her students.
She is a nice,great treacher!
I believe Janine is a wonderful English teacher.
Janine is an excellent teacher, when I first started her class I hated to write but she has taught me to do my best and not give up.
Awesome instructor.
I wish she had more openings for her English 100 class
Janine is very nice and she is a excellent teacher.
She's a good teacher.
I think shes awesome!
Wonderful and very understanding teacher.
She makes alot of attemps to get your paper perfect

For sure, she was an excecllent teacher.
Yes. She is fun and helpful.
Yes i would definantly recommend this class to other students because Janine really cares about all her students and the work is not as hard.
Yes, I would recommend Janine to other students because her class is very easy to understand and there's not much homework. But the homework we are assigned relates to the assignments we do in class, also her way of teaching the sentence types is easy and fun to understand.
Yes I would, because her teaching style is again, great. Taking things step by step, ensures the students will have more understanding, and knowledge of the subject.
yes, she is very detailed in her use of many types of learning tools. if you want to write better, you can't go wrong with Janine.
Yes! There is a lot of work that you need to do of this class but she makes it easy to get through the semester. You will learn a lot in this class!
Yes i would. Simply because of her effort. She dedicates so much time to writing, either writing her own poems or reviewing others writings. She is a professional writer. You don't go to a part-time singer to learn to sing, You go to a professional who makes a living through singing. I believe Janine is a professional writer, so I would recommend her in a heart beat
Yes, I most certainly would. for the same reasons I stated above.
I would because she is a wonderful help directing the students towards their success.
Definitely.
Yeah she would teach alot of students a thing or two
Yes. She's a good teacher.
Yes, she is easy to understand.

I would recommend her to other students, because of the concern she shows for her students.
Yes. But she gives a lot of assignments.
Yes i would because she teaches very well
Yes, I would recommend Janine to other students. I would do so, because she cares about her students very much and would do anything to see us succeed.
Yes, because she explains things well.
Yes,yes, yes she does such a great job at helping us understand the assighnments.
Yes, because students will gain a lot of knowledge from her class.
yes good teacher to learn from
Sure, but I would say that they will have to type up a lot of papers.
Yes, she is very knowledgeable
25. Other comments:
Though I do find this class tough, it is truly great. Though there is a lot, and it is easy to get lost, it is all for practice, and slowly understanding the concepts. Students will definitely learn something from this class, and though some may take it as a thorn in their side, as long as they try, push themselves and ask questions, they will get through it.
Keep it up Janine you make a difference in every one of your students writing.
Thanks for everything
I think this course should at least count as an elective because more students need to re-learn the basics of english.
Great class structure!
Thank you Janine!
i learn many things about writting an essay and the different types of sentences
None.

21. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She always encouraged students to see her outside of class to discuss assignments. Her feedback was extremely helpful in writing AND analyses.
She was always available to meet with any students who had questions or needed help on an essay etc..She always asked if we had any questions.
She made herself availabe to the students
Always had good sincere feed back. Always allowed the students
The amount of open office hours she has is more than ANY OTHER teacher. She helps us develop both as a group, and an individual.
when i had unexpected medical problems, she allowed me to have an extension on my essay.
She asked about them if they didn't show up. She made sure she was available outside class hours. She encouraged one-on-one meetings for those who wanted them or showed an interest.
22. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
I especially like how she made the time go by so fast. I really enjoyed her class, and was always excited for the stimulation it provided. She always got the students interested in the subject.
I like group discussions.
I am not sure what I liked or disliked about the way she had taught this course.
All the material. Reading them with emotion wasn't fun but intellectually they are golden.
At first I felt like the class was being taught in a manner more suitable for children. It wasn't until later that I could appreciate her earnestness, and genuine love for the material, that she wished to share with us.
i didn't really like reading all those books because i felt like i didn't have enough time to think about it and reflect about it too. i felt like we were rushing into the next book every time.
so much awesome discussion. i kinda wish we could have forced the quiet people to talk more.
I really liked her enthusiam for the course. She made her lessons seem more interesting this way.
23. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I hope she teaches other lit classes, I would take them as an elective.
Janine Oshiro is a BOSS
You are awesome.
brilliant, lively, and kind
I really enjoyed her class, but wished she would post grades on time.
24. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, I just told you. She is great teacher that will not bore you...always supportive.
I would recommend Janine to other students if they love to write essays.
Yep, She is thoughtful in just about everything she does and teaches.
I've already recommended many students. It's hard to find a teacher who cares so much.
yes, because she's awesome, and really helps you think about material. also, the books she picked were way more appropriate for a college level course than harry potter and twilight
Yes, she's a direct instructor who makes her expectations clear. She is fair in her grading and offers students a chance to improve on what they submit to her.
25. Other comments:
I came into the class looking to fulfill a requirement. I'm leaving it with an appreciation for poetry, and an understanding of how it can help me develop as a person. I may not ever love poetry as much as Ms, Oshiro, but I will keep reading it, and maybe writing it.
I'd recommend this class to other students because it was a fun and mind broadening course.

by making herself available for students to come to her for any needed help.
She was always available to help students with revising there essays and encourage students to come see her if they were having problems
She was always attentive to our needs and made herself available for all. Janine kept our grades posted on laulima which helped keep me aware of the curriculum needed to achieve an A in her class.
Yes she does.
By explaining it to them in a nice way
She was sensitive to situations that might have hindered students from completing assignments
She was always willing to meet with us outside of class for extra help. I liked that she was very caring and willing to go the extra mile for us. She was very helpful with any questions of further explanation that we needed.
Janine has shown concern for each of her students by being present and excited about each day. There is never a day where she is not happy or unmotivated to start and that what I like about her most. I hope to one day have those qualities.
She individually talked to students and tried to help each one to her best ability
She encourages us to do revisions on our paper, giving us more opportunities for a higher grade.
Janine Oshiro is always will to help each student individually if they need help with the subject material. She helps you see the bigger picture in writing, and provides ways to help solve gramatical problems when doing essays.
She takes time to talk to each one of us; especially when we have an essay assignment.
She was always available outside of class and was willing to help with all of our assignments and projects
she went around class and talked to every student individually to talk about how we were doing, what we needed help on, and so forth. she also always told the students when she was available to have meetings for extra help.
Helped us create ideas for writing.
In her efforts and opportunity to revise and do extra credit.
She make sure no one has questions before she moves on . when she answers questions she is clear and easily understandable
I believe she really cares about how the students learn. She was always asking us questions and there was never a questioned she did not answer. She truly showed that she cared for us students by focusing on us one by one and making it clear on the problems we had to fix in our writing styles.
She explains clearly and helps out when she sets people into smaller groups. This I find especially helped because she wanted people do help each other among themselves but even when the class was broken up she would make sure every one was headed in the right direction.
written comments on assignments
Encouraged questions.
She was always available to answer any questions we had about assignments, and often gave us a push in the right direction when it came to getting started on our papers.
She tells us to make appointments with her if we need help to revise any essays.
She leaves extra credit for those who need it.
explained what was needed to fix essays
Always asking if we need help.
She is always there for help. She doesnt discourage asking for help if needed.
by trying to fix problems a student may have in english
Janine Oshiro would show concern for her students through walking around during work time and talking with each of us about our plans to write out essay. I through this was great, because if any one of us were uncomfortable with talking to her, she would voluntarily come to see that we were on the right track.
She helped us when we were not doing well in her class.
She walks around and lets us know she's available to answer questions and if we need to, we can set up appointments to see her after or before class.
She takes the time to make sure everyone can write a college-level paper.
N/A
She offered a lot of individual help and pushed students to improve themselves.
22. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
I liked that she was interested in what she was teaching. It helped me to be interested in it.
I like the writing process. Janine broke the material down for the students, and taught each step of the process effectively.
corrected essays and exams take too long to return back to the student
I like that she showed great enthusiasm when speaking of the subject matter.
I loved the books she used they were awesome. I learned so much especially from They say/ I say and The Little Penguin Handbook. I now have the confidence it's going to take to further my education and look forward to the writing intensive classes with a lot less fear. I plan on keeping both books because they will definitely come in handy.
I like the use of time in class to go over material and the five at five is like a mini refresher. I wasnt a huge fan of the weekly forums on current events just because it was hard to remember to do them.
Everything
She is very excited about this subject and makes it interesting to learn about it
I really like how she made it fun and I really like all the essay topics and the material we covered because it was areas where I felt like I needed extra help in. Overall, I enjoyed the class and think that she is probably the best English teacher I've ever had.
I liked how Janine has taught this course. She didn't overdo anything and she set it at a pace where everyone was able to finish in time, and if not she was always willing to extend time if necessary.
She provide great essay topics that allowed me to express my opinions.
I liked the writing assignments we had. It's been a while since I've written essays so it was nice to do it again. I also really liked how Janine taught us about grammar, I think grammar is very important.
I especially like how her assignments keep you busy throughout the semester, and makes you want to kee learning.
I liked how passionate she was about what she taught.
i liked that she gave many examples for every different topic.
I did not like how unmotivated I was
The 5 and 5 are very helpful and insightful.
i liked how she spread the work out and would work on essays in class instead of just letting us write them on our own with no in class help and instruction. i also liked how she structured the class
I believe professor Oshiro was great in this course. Before I took her class I didn't understand how to do certain things in essays, but I learned a lot in her class. The only downfall is the grading system. I was really discouraged by it. You get 10 points and it barely bumps you up a percentage, but you lose 3 points and you're looking at a big downfall.I felt like I was constantly being knocked down no matter what I did. If I had known this was how the grading system was I would have taken another class.
She made it a lot more fun. I don't always like english but the way that she taught the course made it very interesting and I actually looked forward to coming to class. The assignments were all relative to the material. I really saw that I was learning a lot in the class that would help me out later.
I wish we would have gotten our scores for assignments back sooner.
Current events were sometimes overwhelming.
Janine has a genuine appreciation for the English language, and her positive outlook and excitement for writing spilled over to the students. She is always upbeat and made learning grammer fun.
She played music in the begining of class and she provided some examples of things while she was explaining something.
Too much homework at once. Can't expect us to do current events, book readings and dictionary logs while having essays. We do have other classes.
essays were hard
Course outline.
Current events were a bit too much when they are due on Tues. Maybe maintain them on a due date of Thurs instead or watch the timing with the essays, drafts, CEDL's...... it becomes overwhelming.
I liked the way she made the subject interesting, i enjoyed the writing in this class.
the material she made us read and assignment we did were very usfull
I really like how enthusiastic she was during every class period. There was never one class period where she was discouraged or seemed bored. Although she had three english courses to teach in a row, she never once portrayed any negative feelings or boredom through her teaching in class.
She was very interested in her subject and was very positive and happy in class.
I like her passion for English. She really does love it and she loves to teach it.
i dislike how many assignments there are in such short period.
she would gave us group activities so that we could help each other with our essays.
I liked how enthusiastic she was about her subject. She shows genuine interest in English and was always happy to help. She was always in a great mood and that provides a great learning environment.
23. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She is a really great teacher, and she is very patient with her students.
nice, fair
She is a very positive influence and I will remember her always.
She has an interesting class and is a very interesting teacher.
I really like the way she taught the class and I am looking forward to learning even more about english.
She is truly a nice and caring person. I can tell that she really wants to help her students and open their eyes to the world of writing. I would like to take future English classes from her.
Janine is a great person as well as a great teacher. She always tries to inspire her students with a positive attitude and it works!
Thanks for giving me the tools to better organized my papers.
Thank you for being a great professor! I think a little more feedback for our papers would be even more helpful. It would also help us know how to fix the exact problem.
People need to take one of her classes.
Very good teacher, i would take her class again.
she was a good teacher, i learned a lot of grammar from this course.
Help students understand grammar and English in a logical understandable way.
She is good teacher and enjoyed her class worksheets and activities
If students really want to learn, like challenging work and like writing a lot, then this is a class for them. Students will walk away with great knowledge and confidence to take on another English class.
She seems to really love english which makes it easier as a student to care.
she is a nice lady, and knows her stuff.
To be more characteristic.
Why don't you like sugar?
Thanks for all your help you really are a good teacher. Plus you went to Iowa.....even better :)
She is very good teacher that understands her topic well.
i cant tell she has a real passion for english
I think that she was an excellent instructor, teaching her students from the ground up on how to write papers and giving former examples of how to do it right.
She is a really good english teacher but gives a lot of homework.
I loved taking her class. It's funny because Shibuya was supposed to teach it and she ended up doing it.
She is sort of an over-achiever in class which can be good but make people feel as if they are not meeting requirement.
She is a wonderful teacher and I would take other classes offered by her.
24. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, she is very helpful, knows what she is talking about, and seems to genuinely care about her students.

yes, she makes english easy to learn and gives examples. We review and go over what we've learned.

Yes because she is easy to understand and is a good teacher. this is my 2nd time taking english 100 and i definitely learned way more in this class than i did before.
Yes and no depending on the type of student you are. Yes because I believe she really does teach us how to become better writers and cares about our work. No, if students don't want a challenging class and if they don't like the grading system it would not be a class for them.
I have already, her class had a bit of work but it was all very relevant and easy to follow and none of it felt like busy work. I learned a lot in this class.

25. Other comments:
Wish me luck on the final! I have a 85.84% and I hope to still maintain that B until the end of the semester. I feel like I deserve that grade because I put a lot of hard work into this class.
awesome!
I had so many doubts when I first came to class and Janine quickly managed to disolve those feelings. I now have the confidence to succeed in classes to come and she said if any of us ever need help don't hesitate to make an appointment.
:) thanks oshiro. enjoyed your class
I liked all the extra credit opportunities that were so closely related to learning as a whole
Thanks Janine for another year! I hope to see you again one day!
Have a great summer!!

21. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She makes the class talk in small groups, then an overall open class discussion so people can experiment sharing their ideas. She really tries and tries until you absolutely understand.
Janine showed concern by checking on the class collectively and individually. Janine continued to let us know that when she was available outside of class and always listened intently to each person who shared ideas in class as well as when meeting individually. Janine is always very positive, giving us positive encouragement when feeling stressed about assignments and deadlines.
By not only answering specific questions but going into detail on how you can better understand your own problems personally and the overlying concepts that need to be learned.
Always ask if we have questions. She's avaiable for one on one time if we need help.
Janine showed concern by always getting us students to see her when we need help, one-on-one conference, and update us on how we are doing physically and mentally.
Yes! She is always available to answer questions and help outside of the classroom.
She showed concern by asking how we are doing at the beginning of each day. Then based on our feedback, she's able to gage her plan of action for us. I also appreciated the way she opens up the class early for those that needed to talk with her. She never made us feel lesser when we weren't keeping up with the schedule. I appreciated the fact that it wasn't all about deadlines per se, it was all about our learning experience.
Janine helped me when I asked for it and she understands that sometimes life outside of school can be challenging.
She went around the class and ask each student individually if they need help.
22. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
She has a great knack for the English language and implements the laulima service to make the class very hands on interactive even from home. I like the way she encourages peer review and supports us to comment on each others topics and discussions. It was the first time that I wasn't afraid of English 100; it made me excited to experiment putting my thoughts down and articulating my ideas on paper. Gave me a good feeling like my thoughts got more organized.
I especially liked the feedback Janine was willing to provide. Janine is always encouraging us to do well and work at succeeding. She explained material well and made sure to check if we were catching on to the material presented each and every class session.
She was very open, kind, and well organized. Her teaching style is extremely competent and I enjoyed this class very much.
I actually learned stuff from her english class compared to Dalhman's.
I love everything especially when she believed in me to get all my work done.
I loved the topics that she shared; the films were eye-openers. She gave us the right kind of motivation to get us researching and taking a stand on our beliefs and values. I enjoyed her reading to us, and that she enjoyed reading for us. Her activities allowed us to get to know each other a little bit more, and to share each others take on the subjects.
I guess I wasn't as prepared as I should have been for this class and I like the way things were structure.
I did not like some of the reading from the books. it was hard to understand even after several times reading it.
23. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She is very nice and uplifting. She has a nice style to her wardrobe and she gives off the supporting feeling like she really wants to help us out and hear what we have to say. I must say that I liked the award I was given for having a perfect attendance, a book she carefully picked out based on my background information.
Janine is a great teacher. I feel she cared and understood her students. For example, when we had a class discussion in the beginning of the semester and everyone explained how we had to read the material over and over again, Janine explained how that re-reading materials is necessary and normal, putting everyone at ease. Janine is great with giving us good feedback and suggestions without making us feel inadequate. Janine also holds to her standards set at the beginning of the year, setting the tone and expectations at an obtainable and reasonable place. Janine also updated her grades in a timely matter which helped me to know where I was in her class and where I needed to improve.
She is a very good teacher, and I learned alot.
She is very into her subject which gets us into it.
Thank you for taking time to help me when I needed your help.
She's a bright, energetic, creative, compassionate, and confident woman. She has a can do attitude. By her being involved with the poem reading, and sewing her own costumes, and her other ideas, she inspires us, believes in us, and wants only to empower us to communicate our ideas, beliefs, and expressions on paper. We're unique, and she allows us to communicate what we have to offer.
Janine has a nice presence about her. She is very kind and gentle in nature.
she really enjoys english
24. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, I would say that English can finally be conquered with her easy steps, and active involvement in the class. They will feel smarter through this experience.
I would totally recommend Janine to anyone. Janine updates grades in a timely manner. She keeps and open dialogue with her students by letting us know her availability and returning emails and calls promptly. Janine never makes you feel afraid to approach her with anything. I think communications is key in any relationship and Janine is a very good, clear communicator. Mahalo for all your hard work, Janine.
Absolutely, if there was any teacher I can honestly recommend for students to learn something it would be Oshiro.
Yes, because I feel that you will learn more from her than most teachers who don't seem interested in teaching.
Yes, I will love to recommend Janine to other students.
Yes!
Yes, because she loves sentences and words. I have never met a person that actually said so. I thought that was very impressive and different. Since she loves literature and loves teaching, I appreciate the way she gives of herself. She makes us feel like we're the only class she has. And I'm going to miss her, and my classmates...farewell everyone, thank you Janine for your beautiful mind, ethusiasm, and smiles. You made our learning experience warm, friendly, yet you challenged us to push through our struggles and never made us feel bad about ourselves.
Yes because she is easy to understand.
no. it was difficult for me to put some of the material she taught me into my essays.
25. Other comments:
Keeping up with the schedule of assignments is kinda nuts, but you can make it through them if you make it a habit to check your laulima account often. Janine will put up reminders for assignments often.
In-class discussions were always very enlightening too. Listening to ideas shared from other students helped me to see things in a way I never saw before. Peer reviews were good when partnered up with students who had good ideas and tired to help.
This class was great, I learned alot, and Janine Oshiro is a spectacular teacher.
:)--:)
Thank you for being understanding.
thanks

21. How did the instructor show concern for students?
she helped tell us what are weak spots were and taught us how to improve them.
She would ask to meet with her after class or we set a meeting with her in her office.
She showed it by looking at he student making eye to eye contact. Listening very attentively and every now and then uses correct choices of words to let them know she heard us. She uses different examples if we don't get it the first time. If there isn't enough time she will see us after class by making appointments with each individual.
She helps all students equally and involves everyone during individual and class work.
Janine definitely shows interest in her students,Especially if she wants them to be a great writer someday. She goes through her materials in class as well as book work. She does help us develop skills where we can enhance our writing skills and know when their is an in correct sentence. I can say that I have learned a lot from her. It has helped me to write back not only in her class but my future classes as well.
Janine made sure she was available for students who needed help with anything or if we did not understand something we had done in class.
Janine showed her concerns by meeting with us individually to go over some of our work.
she would tell us many times if we needed help or anything to come and see her and she would often ask us how we are doing.
Janine Oshiro showed concern for students by, reminding each and everyone of us that if we did not turn in any of our paragraphs on time to turn them in as soon as possible. If none were turned in, points will be taken off and your grade will go down. For tests she would have re-takes for those students who failed any of her tests, for them to have time to re-take it. Also if you felt like you were falling behind in class, she would recommended her students to make an appointment to talk with her to see if there was a way to catch up.
she was there to help her students if they need help or wanted examples on the work that was given.
She never gave up hope on each student.
no concerns, Janine is an awesome instructor.
answering questions
janine taught us well about pursuing a great writing skills.she have time to all her student by giving us a individual meeting if we want to.she always had comments about are writing so we can improve it and make corections.
She asked us about how we are doing with our homework and how we did on the test. she also gave us extra time to do the test if we had a bad grade. She was always there to help us
Janine would always say if you have any question or concern about anything we can go to her and talk to her after class on in her office. she would also write notes on our test or papers saying to talk to her after class so she can help us understand the material better.
Janine constantly reminds her students the times she would be in her office so that we could set up meetings with her. She always double checks on nay questions we might have on certain parts of the assignments and she always encourages us to be great writers. She is a great teacher and i am glad that i took this course.
22. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
she was a good teacher and her teaching methods are fine.
She made it interesting and clear not like other teachers.
She made english fun to learn. She really helped me over come my difficulties in subjects in prepositional phrases, types of sentences i never knew had, and through my paragraphs I learned how to see my mistakes and to correct them.
I like how she always provided activities that had to do with the lesson on that day to make you understand it better.
I don't have any dislikes. I liked everything about her class and she was able to give us examples of certain assignments that would benefit us in the near future.
She had given handouts and went over everything thoroughly.
The course was easy because she was a good teacher.
It was easy to understand what she wanted us to do.
The thing that i liked about the way Janine Oshiro taught this course is, she helped me to better understand writing materials. I have learned so much more about writing and I think I have improved my writing skills better throughout this semester. I can use the many materials that she has taught me in my daily life and for the next semester and school years to come.
She took her time in teaching everything that we had to know.
Awesome teaching and awesome instructor.
nice
i dont have any negative comments about mrs janine.I like what she did in our class.She is profesional in being a teacher and how she taught us.she likes us to always participate in class and be attentive.
I liked the way she taught us by showing us slide shows and giving us the hand outs so we can take it home and study. Also I liked it that she gives a group time to work with each other on the class work I like how she is prepaerd.
what i like about the Janine Oshiro teaching thing class was we would play games to learn about the material.
I like the way she is always helpful. I like how she broke down all the different parts of things and how she made activities to get us to participate and it was helpful becuase during test's all i could think abou twere the games and the examples that were given.
23. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Overall good teacher
She is a wonderful teacher that I had.
Thank you for making English so fun to learn. Especially being patient with me because I know I could be a difficult student at times. I learned that only I can make the difference in writing. Now I may want to change my major to English. I found that dissecting English is a way to understanding and want to know more. Understanding the components of english drives me to be in your class in the future. Thanks for making a immense differenct in my life. I am feeling a lot more confident in English.Thanks for helping me appreciate my Attention Deficit Disorder in a postitive way. Though I still struggle with tenses (types of sentence) I have been always enjoyed being in your class. You are an insperation to me.
She's a great teacher and she really has an interest in what she's teaching and class is never boring.
She is a great teacher if she was teaching English 22 I would definitely take her class again, and I recommend her to any others that are going to take English 19 or English 100.

I have a inner drive to come to class even though I should have stayed home (too sick). I am able to read and comprehend just by looking at a book now. The difficult areas tend to take more of my time but after all of that I learned something. I still have to grasp my current lessons but found that I know I can do it. She made me appreciated my ADD in a positivie way instead of only the negative way.
I would recommend her to a lot of english majors because if they're interested in english then she will make the class really interesting.

A new outlook on literature and am now able to think deeper into readings
I learned that its fun to read.
I wrote in different mediums so it wasn't just the same old thing. I wrote poems and short stories that broke the mold of what I was used to. New experiences with different people and learning material was also important. I appreciated reading my work without having to worry what people would say. Everyone was really supportive of everybody and that made it fun to come to class.
