9. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
Possibly adjust some of the videos. A lot of us seemed to have difficulty accessing the videos.
Continue in what your doing
Towards the end of the semester there are too many assingments due in one week. I would rather start off with more and end with less.
I really learned in this class, I just wish there were another option to have a on campus class instead of hybrid.
Weekly discussion questions should be more centered on the current topics.
She can't. It's already perfect.
Everything that I learned in the class was helpful
Meet more than 4x throughout the semester. Class was too long. Maybe if met more often than class wouldn't be as long.
Nothing, I think this course had a lot of information to be shared and it was all accomplished.
Julie is an awesome teacher that provides me with a positive experience.
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
The question should be: "What did I not like?" I loved the entire class and was sad to see it end! The insight of how the children would experience activities by putting us in their shoes was pure genius! Bravo!
I loved all of the hands on activities during the face to face classes
All the hands on activities!
I enjoyed the Face-to-Face meetings
I liked the hands on activities best. I feel I can easily replicate the activities that we did together, with children.
Do work in class in small groups and the very real examples she is able to provide from her many years of experience in the field.
I enjoyed how hands on everything was
All of the hands on activities we did during class! Made time go by faster and I was able to gain a better understanding about the topic through hands on learning!
I really enjoyed the fact that "big" assignments were spread out and not all due the Friday before face-to-face classes.
I really enjoyed the face-to-face class.
11. My overall evaluation of this course is...
I believe that Julie designs all her classes well and is very insightful. She cares about the future of early childhood education and wants to make sure that she is available to help individuals.
Wonderful! All college courses should be so enjoyable!
I learned a lot.
Great!
Overall, this was a very excellent class.
This class was very useful and beneficial to my ECE education and career.
Good course. I enjoyed it being on Saturdays because although it did take many hours out of a few of my saturdays, I was happy to get the learning in at one time instead of streching it out for only an hour a week
awesome, interesting, and fun course!
I really enjoyed this class and unlike previous semesters, I wasn't stressed out with the amount of work due each week. You spread it all out well and I was able to keep on track and have a relatively stress-free semester. Thank you!
12. Other comments:
Thank you very much! You have taught us all so much! No matter where we all are your teaching will be ingrained in how we teach children.
Thanks again Julie. Your time and dedication is truly appreciated.
Julie should receive the Excellence in Teaching Award for 2012-2013!
Thank you!

9. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
She can Imporve by giving more group work assignments and more hours for service learning project.
By maybe explaining thing better when it comes to homework assignments.
Julie challenges and engages us to learn more about the content of this class. Great JOB!
Possibly a clearer explanation on the do's and don't's for the art/science activities we had plan for certain ages, just to make sure everyone knows what is expected of them.
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I really enjoyed the class activites and learning about young children. The best part of doing homework assignments was learning about each others ideas and using those ideas twoards the furture.
I liked how she gave us homework packet that had the homework and class work for the whole semester.
I like that Julie puts more emphasis on attendance and class activities! Sometimes teachers get lost in test scores. I like that the work load is manageable for a full-time student.
Group activities and using the materials we provide children to play with to play with them ourselves.
the opportunity for do service learning for the final project
11. My overall evaluation of this course is...
I loved it!
It was enjoyable and i learned alot!
Authentic and clear expectations. Julie breaks up our time with her well and gives us real information to work with- great example from her experiences!
Great!
great course, I really learned a lot

9. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
This was a great course. I enjoyed every class meeting. The only way that this course might be improved, in my opinion, is to meet every week, rather that every other week. There is so much to discuss and share, more frequent class sessions would be valuable to the students.
Continue doing the great work that you do.
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I enjoyed the sharing among the students of their individual experiences. I enjoyed the sky-bridge aspect. We were able to hear from other students living in a rather different community; both in local and community focus. Julie always brought interesting and thought provoking information to the class discussions. Julie's teaching style is great. The relaxed yet knowledge-packed class meeting are very enjoyable. Each student is challenged in a manner that results in the student being eager to presue the challenges of this class curriculum.
I think homework load was just right. Planning activities and evaluating after was helpful. Journals helped with topic for discussion.
Working with the children and teachers, the entire experience of practicum was interesting and worthwhile.
11. My overall evaluation of this course is...
This course was great.
This class was very helpful and useful. I enjoyed being able to work with my peers.
Julie is a wonderful instructor, thank you.
12. Other comments:
I really enjoyed this class experience. I learned a lot and have improved teaching skills because of this class. It is a very valuable class to every student aspiring to a career in early childhood.

everything was great
Maybe split the child portfolio into two parts, have the first half due half way through the semester, just so we can know that we are on the right track!
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
group discussion
I like that we can resubmit any homework assignments that we didnt do so well on.
I really enjoyed putting together a professional portfolio and also getting observed in th eclassroom from Julie.
I loved how small our class was, and I liked that our professional portfolio wasnt just due all at one time, we had the option of turning alittle in a time to make sure we were doing it right. It was less overwhelming
11. My overall evaluation of this course is...
great class
I think its a great course.
EXCELLENT!
I learned alot, and was stretched in the best way possible!

9. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
Her teaching style is different from most but it is what it is and I liked it! She brought in guest speakers for almost every class and it really helped to get an idea about their career fields and how early childhood education isnt only about the development of children but also about their well-being. They also spoke about why they do what they do and their inspirations and motivations that got them to where they are today.
she did a perfect job
She is a wonderful teacher and all of her assignments are extremely beneficial to my learning. I can't think of anything Julie needs to improve.
nothing needs to be changed.
Its already a amazing course!
I think she did a good job.
I think that Julie has been a wonderful curriculum for this class. There is truly nothing to improve.
I can't think of anything right now. She is always trying to improve the course for each person as an individual. She is an AMAZING and INSPIRATIONAL teacher!!
more group activities, videos, and exciting things to keep my attention from wondering...
NONE
Truthfully cannot think of any way to improve class other than to hold her classes in a larger forum. I know many want to take her classes & a larger room may help that. She is truly an asset to UH Maui ECE Department.
I would not want her to do any improvements in this course...
I think it is perfected
Julie does an outstanding job of teaching this course. The classes are interesting and informative. The students are challenged and the work load ,while substantial,is not an overload. There were many guest speakers from the field. this gave the students an opportunity to hear about E.C. from the viewpoint of many in the field. This type of opportunity won't be available to the students otherwise. The evaluation process of student mastery of the material was varied and sought to reveal understanding of concepts as well as the facts. I really enjoyed this class. thanks Julie. I appreciated having choices in many of the assignments. Options are good. thanks Julie.
More on group activies.. It's fun to know other people.
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I like how when it came to homework she gave us a packet of everything we'll be doing during the semester, consisted of detailed and thoroughly explained assignments and their due dates.
The guest speakers were awesome.
The service learning was an extraordinary experience. The reading and writing assignments were very helpful for I was able to apply what I learning in the reading into a paper. The observations I took part in were very helpful and I was able to see what were learning about in action in a real classroom.
I like that she made assignments that were more hands on and she made us well aware of our work instructions and due dates.
The discussions in class.
Class size and material covered
I liked the guest speakers the best.
I enjoyed hearing from guest speakers and getting an overview of the history of ECE was helpful.
I enjoyed the guest speakers that are already in the field. The re-cap exercise is a good tool to see if the students comprehended what was being said.
I enjoyed the class activities and discussions. It brought a sense of "family" to the class.
great class discussions!
The guest speaker
I enjoy her varied expertise because of her wide ranged background in ECE. I also enjoy the fact that she brings in guest speakers to enhance our ECE experience.
I like the interviews assignment that we have been doing in this class.
the guest speakers
I love how we got to hear from different guest speakers and each subject we worked on, gave me full idea for becoming a teacher.
The guest speakers were great because we got to hear from people who were currently in the field.
I liked best Julie's teaching style. It was always a pleasure to be in class. She knows how to reach her students and how to keep them engaged throughout the entire class. There is a relaxed yet professional feeling during the classes. It is obvious that the students enjoy and respect Julie as their teacher.
Group activies, lectures, discussions
11. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Overall this course was balanced with hard work and fun:) This class is amazing and the instructor is wonderful! I reccomend anyone who needs credits like this to do it because in this class you will learn alot and still be able to have fun!
Very informative course. I enjoyed it!
Wonderful in every way.
A+
Highly recommend this class!
Good
This course was good.
This was a great intro class to ECE--it helped me to make my decision in ECE easy!
This class was awesome! I cannot wait to start the next one!
Well-defined course work, knowledgeable teacher with great insight. It was definitely worth my time to take this class!
this was my least favorite class because the book was boring, but at least this class was very informative and educational.
Great!
GOOD
This course has been an excellent addition to my CDA course studies and I appreciate the fact that it was taught by Julie!

Keep up the good work. Very fun class
THANK YOU JULIE!!!! You are an award winning teacher! I'm going to do what I can for you to get the outstanding teacher award. You absolutely deserve it.
Very organized and helpful.
Not so much emphasis and points taken for an absence.
Mahalo to Julie for sharing her mana'o with our class and working so late at night to teach.
Believe it or not, I think most parents (seasoned, as well as new) should take this course. If anything, to get a better understanding of what it takes to be involved in your child's life and how very worth it it is! I feel like a better parent because there are aspects of this course that is relevant to parenting as well!!!
none
That I would let my friends know of this course and let them know that it is a great class...
Thank you for everything! Will miss your class
This is a great learning experience. Thanks Julie
Continue of what you are doing. Thank you for being my teacher.

9. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
Don't need to
Overall, Julie's class was informative and in regards to teaching the material she does a great job.
There are none that needs amy improvements in this course...
I think this course was great.
I really enjoyed this class, I can't think of anything for her to improve.
Videos and her sharing stories about her experiences really helped me visualize/learn things and help me remember things
Julie does an excellent job of teaching this class. The classes are great. Students interact and work cooperatively. this class has been an up to date learning experience. Testing is done in such a way as to tap into your understanding of the concepts; not just rote memorization. It is interesting, informative, challenging, and a pleasure because of Julie, her teaching style and her deep knowledge base concerning her field. Mahalo, Julie
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
The snack presentation :)
The food and eating
Healthy snack presentations & curriculum fairs
The snack and the group presentation...
The snacks and the reading/writing assignments.
I liked the snack presentations the best.
I loved the reading and response assignments because I was using the information I just read to write a paper. Hands down the service learning was the best out of class experience. I was able to practice all of the vital information I learned in class. The snack presentations were also fantastic for the evening snack and the ideas I got for using with my future class.
Great class discussions and group activities!
I liked the aspect of doing projects to instill learning best. Hands on is always more memorable.
I love the snack presentations, and the group discusions, they helped me in know the info for the quizzes
11. My overall evaluation of this course is...
GREAT!!!!!
awesome class
GREAT COURSE! However, offering this class during daytime hours would be helpful.
The guest speakers that we have in our class from different preschools...
Very good class. She makes it fun when there is food involved.
This course was great. I think we all learned a lot through having the students have a chance to teach the other students.
Amazing! I had a great time every class and I learned so much from Julie and her assignments.
Good
Great! My favorite ED class so far!
My overall evaluation of this course is GREAT!!!!!

9. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
Julie, She is a great teacher. I thank you - the talents shared
Sometimes she went through things a little fast, but it was a good rate. For example, when it was time to take notes, the notes on the screen werent left on long enough.
It was perfect that there is no improving in this course. I would take any classes that she teachs in the future or have my friends take her classes.
I cannot think of anything Julie needs to improve on. Julie is an outstanding educator. I believe she is an inspiration to all of us. I wish there was a way I could give back to her for all that she has done for me this semester.
she tells stories about her past experience with children and that is very helpful to me. she also helps you with outside concerns from the school. she is one hell of a teacher.
All i can say is she is doing a good job :).
I believe that she is doing well, going the direction she is going.
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
The lectures and discussions
I liked how she encouraged group work or small group activities.
When knowing the steps in all assignments or classes that I did not miss any days...
videos and class work
The class discussions and lectures, along with the reading and write-ups were a few of my favorite things about this class. I felt very engaged throughout the semester and I am ending this semester with an exceptional amount of newly acquired information.
haveing guest to talk to the class
Her syllabus, and assignments were easy to follow, not overwhelming. The class was manageable and i learned a lot from our class discussions! Very useful information for my future.
The milestone project
I love the class discusions! and learning more about child development
11. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Great! Thanks..
This was a good course
That it would help me to better myself in a facility that deals with younger children in Hawaii.
It was more than I could have ever imagined. I feel blessed to have been on the path that I followed here to Maui College.
very knowledgeable
great! i wish i could have Julie for all of my ED classes.
GREAT!!!
I feel like this course was super helpful in reguards of understanding children better
12. Other comments:
Keep up the good work! Good Luck! God bless you...
I am greatful that I had taken her classes that make me better understand the steps of being with the children and learning the ways that needs to be done...
Thank you Julie.

I think it was great to have the 191 and 291 students together for discussions. It was just about the perfect size. The reading/writing assignments contributed the least to my learning for this class, but I already told you that in class.
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I DIDN'T like the idea of putting together 5 activities at the beginning, but am greatful that that was included because they donʻt seem like such a big deal to me anymore. I really liked the assignment to keep a journal each week. I found sometimes I looked forward to it and sometimes when I didnʻt, I worte about things that I might have forgotten about except for the constant need to document my days.
I like the interaction with each other. It was teacher directed, but student led, and we all became a very supportive team.
11. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Great!
Besides my personal speed bumps, I really enjoyed this course.

no suggestions ~ she does a great job
Julie is already a GREAT teacher!
Like I said before, I don't think she needs to improve any of her courses or the way she teaches them, I think I learn really well by her teaching methods.
SHe did a great job in teaching this course! for me there is nothing that she needs to improve
N/A
The flow of reading and writing assignments was a little confusing sometimes. Like the chapter read and then questions for writing was not necessarily the same.
she cant she does it very welll
no
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
all of the hands on and that we worked as a group. Other than that it was all good.
Service Learning and small group activities and videos
All of the activities, our interactions in the class.
her entire format was what I enjoyed the most
Everything! I was interested in everything the course had to offer.
I liked the guest speakers she brought in you got to see different perspectives of the field from the speakers. I also liked that before we are assigned an assignment for that week, she goes over it and explains what is expected of us and asks if we have any questions about the assignment that wasn't understood.
I just really enjoy getting into groups and discussing whatever we may be talking about that day, it helps me to understand it better.
no quizzes/exams!I learn a lot better without that kind of pressure!
I liked the hands on experience.
I like doing small group work. It helped to share with others. Liked guest speakers--they provided alot of experience info. Good balance of video, lecture, class activity.
learning all about early childhood
all
there was alot of paper work but it kept me grounded
I loved that there we were always given options. While at times we tended to stick to our shy ways we also were able to surprise our own selves and step outside of the box and speak up!
11. My overall evaluation of this course is...
That I really get to know the basics even in the part that I did not expect, also to meet the teachers from each programs.
Excellent course. Lots of material covered.
She is a great teacher. I really enjoyed and most of all because of her I was inspired to go back to school. Thank you.
would highly recommend it to other students
Amazing class! I recommend anyone that want to teach younger children or who love children to take this class.
Great course, great teacher!
It was great, and I feel like I learned alot.
Good! Really enjoyed the guest speakers that we had!
Great! Learned alot and got to put to good use.
excellent
Awesome teacher, great class! Learned a lot and wouldn't change anything about it!
wonderful
I have gained more knowledge about how to work with children as well as some useful teaching techniques and how to plan curriculum.

shes does a good job!
I believe Ms. Julie's methods and philosophy in teaching this course has been very helpful in my profession as an Early Childhood Education teacher. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience and I hope to continue taking classes from her. She is a valuable asset to our community as an educator. Mahalo nui loa Ms. Julie Powers.
everything is great
N/A
I don't think she needed to improve anything, she is an excellent teacher, and I thought she went over the material very well.
In my opinion Julie is doing an amazing job!
Have the computers available for student use whether it's during class time or not. I feel we are all adults and we should have the option to make the right choice of wanting to go on the computer and not pay attention or focus and strive for a great job and grade. It should be our choice to want to succeed or to not to. Because by not having the computers available during class time the other students rather talk and disturb everybody other than just disturbing themselves by being on the computer.
Being that I was on another site, many of my idea's was not recognized because other students would be called on to go first. I'm not sure how this can be improved but it was the only frustration I had all semester. I enjoyed this class and the materials. Thank You!
Adjustments made by giving each site time to respond was a great change during the semester and should be considered in the future.
There isn't any areas where she can improve. This is my first sky bridge class, and I really enjoyed it. She is very organized, and very knowledgable in this subject area.
make it easier to include rubric evaluations with homework assignments.
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
everything
Everything!
Small group activities. Weekly written papers.
all
no quizzez/exams! I learn way better without that kind of pressure!
Getting to work in small groups hearing other people's opinions about things, I liked the guest speakers she brought in, and the videos were very helpful as well.
her stories :) Life examples
I like how personal it is, I feel like we are one big family in her class
reading and writing homework.
Time to discuss topics and answering of questions by site.
I just liked her class. There's activities, interaction with other sites, discussions, and reasonable homework. I would take another course with her if needed.
11. My overall evaluation of this course is...
good examples and very knowledgable
Excellent!
Excellent course. I learned a lot from the assigned writing.
excellent
very excellent teacher who knows what she is teaching to her students.i AM glad that I learned a lot from her .
Good! Especialliy for a first time parent like me. Gave me a lot of insight on how I can guide my own son.
I really enjoyed this class. The only thing I didn't like was that its a Skybridge Class, because it feels weird seeing people on TV and speaking into a microphone. Another thing is you don't get that face to face contact with the other students. But other than that, the course what great, Ms. Julie is great.
It's great....awesome teacher!!!!!!
I really enjoyed this course! I feel like I learned alot, and I cant wait for the other courses I get to take with Julie
good
Great!
Great! Insight from other class members was taken into consideration and grately appreciated.
EXCELLENT!

9. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
She is an approachable and I always admired her for such a dedicated professor. She is worth for being my practicum teacher.
I didn't always feel able to participate in discussions.
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
All the assignments some of them are challenging but it is really worth because it is learning process on how to apply into a really world of our young children now. The observation and the comments, she is really honest to write a remarks on which areas to improve and areas you're good at. Thank you
Being in the class and getting feedback during my observations.
Lots of good input and feedback by having ED291 students included in class.
11. My overall evaluation of this course is...
I'm lucky to have her as my professor. She gives all what she had learned and shared to us. she is always there if I needed some help or questions. She is great teacher.
The best. Kind of a lot of work. Lots of self discipline, persistence, and a sense of responsibility are needed.
12. Other comments:
Thank you for all your help. I was inspired to go back to school although the assinments and some other works are challenging but I really learned so much. I wish you have more students be inspired to go back to school because of your good examples. Thank you for all your hard work. I can't forget you. God bless you.

9. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
One area of improvement would be more examples of what she exactly expects for each assignment. Examples of minimum and excellent work for the assignments.
This course could be better if there was less assignments. Also, options of doing the class via cable or web as well.
nothing
Fantastic Job Julie!
I don't think there's much to improve. She is an excellent teacher, knows the material very well, and has an excellent teaching method. I love having her as a teacher.
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I love when she gives examples of assignments so I know what the expectations are and exactly what I am suppose to be doing!
I love the books presented in class. It gave me a clear view of how to find books and what I should be looking for when searching for books.
I liked the instructors knowledge on the subject matter and her resources in the field.
all
The classroom activites are always engaging and allows me to see how I can improve in my own classroom.
I liked that if you didn't understand something you could ask her or email her and she would explain it better or in a different way, so its easier to understand. Sometimes I have a hard time understanding things, and she was always available and helped me out when ever I needed it. I also liked that if we didn't do so well on an assignment she would give us feedback and let us fix the mistakes that we made.
11. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Great teacher, great class...I really enjoyed it, and learned a lot! I loved that it was so hands on, and I really liked the class size!
It was excellent! Julie provides the perfect environment for discussion, class comfort, vivid real life experiences to provide examples of teaching techniques, and overall creates an environment that strengthens each students knowledge of what a quality early childhood educator should be.
Excellent
great
Highly recommend this course to all ECE students and as a refresher course for teachers who need inspiration.
I loved this course, my teacher and my classmates. I felt like I learned a lot more about child develop and how children learn.
12. Other comments:
Could not ask for a better teacher for this class. So understanding and took the time to explain things whenever we didn't get them, even if it meant her having to explain it more than once!
Thank you Julie for all you do, you truly want your students to succeed in becoming educated and inspiring teachers in the field of ECE. Your passion and enthusiasm is always refreshing. Thanks for all you do inside the classroom and also being available and flexible outside the class as well.
Ms. Julie is an excellent teacher! I love taking her classes! Listening to her personal stories that relate to the topic, besides what we are learning from the book. I wish they would offer more courses that Julie taught. Its nice having the same teacher for the same topic you get to build a relationship with them.

9. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
I can't think of ways she can improve she explains, shows examples, discuss and remind us. Julie always incourages us to see her at office hours if we need help or have questions she goes above and beyond to provide us understanding and answer questions.
The only improvement is more seminars to discuss more and really have time to hear everyone's take on each others situation. I would want more meeting times because when we meet it is just the most helpful time.
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
The aspect I like the best of this course was providing us materials we can use. the professional porfolio, curriculm planning, the text intentional teacher was a great read, interviewing etc. She opened alot of doors in teaching tecnigues and aquired us to relate by including daily experiencs to share in class
Seminars, it was a time to meet with my peers and Julie to bounce off ideas, to find new ideas for situations, and to learn through others experiences.
11. My overall evaluation of this course is...
GREAT COURE WOULD RECOMMEND IT
I loved this class the most. I enjoyed the small class environment so that the students and Julie could really individualize for each student. Everyone was able to get his or her one on one time and get the feed back he or she wanted from Julie and the peers.
