22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Professor Takebayashi is very easy to get a long with and he builds a rapport with the students.
He walks around class to help students. He also encourages to email him for questions and such.
He always asked how I was doing when he knew I was sick and missed a couple classes.
He asks for help, offers help, and help students that have a hard time on the course subject.
He cookie cuttered the code so that it was easy to complete assignements.
He would actively encourage questions and reiterated concepts for everyone if someone had a question.
vern was available after class and outside of class as well as through email.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
Like: the length of the class- gives us time to complete the work. I really like how all the assignments are real world applicable. Opportunities to work on: his answers to questions can be a bit lengthy. Sometimes lectures goes a little off topic. More examples or readings to work with.
He gives out a lot of examples and helps us during class time. I really like when he shows what he does on the screen and explains what each step does. It made it easier to understand the coding. The handouts are really good and informative. Classwork and homework was a good way to practice coding. A lot of the class time was used completely. My only complaint was his voice can be somewhat soft and mumbled, but I understood most of what he said or his examples on screen would show what he was explaining.
I liked that he is very smart and tries to make a hard class understandable.
Some of his choice of words is not clear. Sometimes he uses high level words that some of the students don't understand. It's like he expects us to know those words.
I liked tracing the code, debugging, and watching the projector to learn concepts of coding. I disliked the handwritten exams and algorithms. Comment blocking parts of the code describing the function should be enough. I found myself writing the code first then the algorithm.
I liked how the class was split into two sections: lecture and time to work on classwork and homework. It gave time for students to apply what was covered in the lecture while an instructor was present.
vern is very knowledgeable about this subject and was able to assist with any mistakes or erros i had
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
I think professor Takebayashi is an amazing professor! He is an intelligent man, knowledgable in many disciplines. It's interesting to hear him talk about other topics. I think he would be an awesome mentor as well.
Vern is an awesome professor. He gave me some good advice that I would want to take. His advice can be useful for real life applications as well.
The course teaches python. It was easy at first and it gets more complicated.
Change this course to Writing Intensive because of all the algorithms we had to write.
This course was very interesting. I learned more about a different programming language, different file storage formats, and processing file input and output.
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes! He's very knowledgable and makes the class interesting.
Yes. He's very informative and helps his students. He's a great professor and you'll certainly learn from his class. He seems informative in a lot of things and will help outside of class as well.
I would recommend Vern because he is very helpful.
Yes. He's really helpful with the class works.
Yes
I would recommend Vern Takebayashi to other students. He is very open to questions and helps students to learn the material as well as other things relevant to CENT majors.
yes.
26. Other comments:
I really enjoyed the class! I can't wait to take his next class.
Overall, I enjoyed the class and wouldn't mind taking another one of his classes.
I like how he gives study guides before the exams and how he helps students in each inclass, homework, and project. He's really helpful.

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He stays a little longer after the course time ended.
Asks if anyone needs help on assignments and projects.
staying passed class time for students who had questions and wanted to work longer
Mr Takebayashi stays after class, allows students to come in during of time, and makes great efforts to ensure the students understand the course material.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
Vern is really considerate on his students when something unclear about the lesson comes up.
Lab handouts weren't like other classes. It would have been nice if instructions on handouts were more like a list of step-by-step procedure to doing the lab. It could have made the assignments much easier to do.
constantly uses real-life examples
I liked that he seems to have a mindset that is to focus less on grading out come and more focus on ensuring the students fully understand the material. The only thing I didnt like about the course was that he sometimes teaches bad habits, although he does tell when a habit is bad and should not normally be done.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
The course was new though I managed to learn it.
The course definitely requires that you understand the materials or you won't be able to progress to the later stages of the class.
great instructor if you actually want to learn
The manner in which he taught actually forced me to learn the material, as well as learn new and easier methods to complete the tasks.
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, because he really will help you in each day.
I definitely would. He's a positive figure in the class. Tends to make the lecture more interesting by showing examples and telling us what consequences it may have.
i would recommend Vern to people who are serious about learning the subject he is teaching
I would recommend the course to any one who actually interested and wants to learn the material, not to those who are not interested and want an easy grade as the course can be quite difficult.
26. Other comments:
NA
None
The course relies heavily on using Linux OS. The course description should note this while recommending students become familiar with basic Linux administration commands and procedures. Perhaps a prerequisite or corequisite course that emphasizes on Linux administration would make the course less difficult and more easily understandable.

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Always was available outside of class. Would make time to fit your schedule. Was very understanding about tardies and absences if you gave a valid explanation.
He is always walking around helping students with their work.
By asking if the students know what is going on.
Was available outside of class, and also gave time to complete assignments in class during which time you could ask for assistance and he would provide however much or little assistance you required. Whether it was just a simple question or a more complex question he would take a look and offer his help.
Checking on their progress
If they are behind and if they do not turn in their assignments on time by the due date.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
Liked how we could work on the labs in class and he was there to help if had any questions.
I liked how he explained the lessons, and showed good examples of how to do them.
How in depth he got with the material
No "especially" likes or dislikes the subject matter is not the easiest for me and beyond that I have no problem with his method.
Like his lession
I like the way how he explains the topics and concepts of the subject of ICS to his students and he knows about computers very well. I did not like they way he makes the exams very hard and not the same as the study guide he gives us.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
Granted its a programming class, but it is really hard to pay attention to lectures. Much more efficient to learn by doing and working through examples as a class.
I believe he is a fair teacher, spells out his policies in a clear and straightforward manner and is willing to assist you if you really want to succeed in the class.
GOOD
Vern Takebayashi is a very good instructor and he knows his students very well and tries to be close to them so that they could definitely succeed.
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yeah because he really knows his material.
Yes, he is a great teacher who helps all the students when they ask.
Yes and no, for the subject matter I believe he is very knowledgeable. And if you are very interested in the subject matter or are planning to go into a field that requires the skill set learned it is a very good class. For those who need it more or less to fill a prerequisite I believe it depends how hard you want to be challenged by the material.
yes, he a good professor
Yes, because he is a very excellent instructor and provides very structured concepts of ICS very well and outstandingly.

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He made sure that we all understood the work, and that we did not get lost or confused by the assignments.
By helping explain complex terms and procedures.
ask students if they needed help.
By helping each student with the assignments to make sure they were done correctly and the student understood the material
He has helped me many times, as I am much slower than many of the students. He would find time to explain and show me what steps to take, when I got lost.
Professor Takebayashi shows his concern by giving them advice and chance to bring grades up.
Always asking if anybody needed help as well as checking to make sure everyone was on track every so often to make sure no one fell behind.
I learned a lot from this ICS 100 class. I also liked Vern's teaching technique. He spoke clearly, and at a modern pace. He teaches in a way that everyone can understand, and if a student needs help he makes sure he makes a time in the lesson to help students understand the different assignments.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
I liked that Mr. takebayashi related our assignments to everyday life, thereby making it easy to relate to the work.
Straightforward, practical information for future career/life usages. One thing he could work on is slowing down or pausing in between steps on how to do things. Sometimes, other students had a difficult time keeping up, but he did stop to help others when breaks were given.
His helpful, easy to understand the work that was presented.
He taught a little too fast.
He kept the class interesting by applying daily activities which we use in life to show us how we can make life simpler by using these techniques and help stay organized for business and personal records.
I like that all his notes are very helpful and that he uses good examples. I disliked that we have such a short time to finish class work.
I just liked how he taught the course overall, handled it in a very good way.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
Take ICS 100 from Takebayashi. Youy will learn and have fun at the same time.
He's a cool guy. His mustache kind of reminds me of Nietzsche.
His a good ICS teacher.
He was an excellent teacher...I enjoyed his class very much.
Good teacher, I would enjoy taking another course from him.
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes. He applies life to the work making it easy to understand, and then you learn better.
Sure. He's an all right person.
Yes I would recommend Vern Takebayashi to other others because his a easy teacher with good knowledge.
yes
I would highly recommend Mr. Takebayashi to all students.
Yes I recommend his class because his class is very useful if you want to work in front of a computer in an office.
Yes, he teaches very well and he makes sure every keeps on track.
Yes, because he teaches and helps students, to make sure the students understand what he is saying. As long as you pay attentions like a responsible student should you wont have any problem, because he teaches well.

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He helps me out when Im having problems with the classwork.
Mr. Takebayashi shows his concern for his students by explaining what we will be doing for our work. After explaining, he allows us to work for the rest of class time and we can ask for his help as long as he is unoccupied.
He always asked for students opitions and questions of a particular topic after each lecture, or after exams review days.
He is available outside of class to answer questions.
Mr. Takebayashi is willing to spend a significant time outside of class to help students in my class (myself included).
He is always available during office hours and more, and is more than willing to spend time with his students to make sure they understand the material well.
Making himself available for everyone during instruction and after! He replied to my emails in a timely matter too!
Made sure class understood the material
He expresses it openly by constant addressing our concerns for our understanding, answering (even asking!!!) questions we may have. He also daily gives printouts at the start of the lecture even though the are also uploaded on his laulima as well.
he keeps his temper consistent throughout the semester
He helps students who stays after class and also stays too to help out students who need it.
very concerned
By always asking us questions and if we had problems.
He always allows class time to do daily work assignments. And is always available to answer questions during class time and his posted office hours.
Made himself available for questions in and out of class
He ask if anyone as a question also he helps students one on one.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
What I liked about Mr. Takebayashi's way of teaching was that he is very helpful. There is nothing that I particularly disliked.
I liked the way the professor has passion for programming in that he knows his stuff, and that he knows a lot about computers as a whole.
He is very knowledgeable and helpful.
n/a
He made the course challenging enough that you have to work for your grade.
I really liked his examples he used in class and his hand outs give a lot information and background of the things he lectures about. I disliked that there was no candy. :) just kidding around. Vern is a great teacher.
gave enough time to do labs and explain conecpts well
there is no book, and there is no course outline. impossible to plan ahead for this course. once you fall behind you can't catch up. instead of liking this subject, i am so sick of it, i hate it. i wish i had never taken this course.
I immensely enjoyed his class, he was informative and passionate about his subject, he gave very detailed example and clarified any questions I had in great detail in fact he added more as well! I enjoy how he uses all the technology within his class extremely effectively wither it be the promethean board, projector, dropboxes, e-mail, etc. Its very refreshing to have an instructor who is so technologically inclined.
I like he approaches the students whenever he or she asks questions
I kind of dislike how he goes over somethings in class. I think it would be better to go over more complex examples(like a lab type of example) than doing very simple examples.
like almost everything he teaches and dislike none...
He takes his time to explain it. Also gives time if a student is not catching on.
I liked that he used simple problems for daily assignments to learn about Java. but his explanations of method, class, main method was not clear or simple enought in the first two weeks. results of exam1 showed avg grade barely passing, low 60%. means alot of students did not understand, including me. final project was very hard compared to lab assignments, if he did not give examples, there is no way to finish. he needed to explain the examples with the class.
The only thing I disliked was Project 3 because it seemed rush. Didn't fully understand GUI Programs, yet I needed to try figure it out myself. When we were placed into groups for the last project, we didn't really talk to have much time to discuss what to do because GUI programs were still a bit confusing for us. Other than that, I enjoyed this class.
I like the way Vern taught because he gives lots of examples.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
Keep up the good teaching!
His course may be challenging in that he dumps a lot of lecture handouts and stuff relating to programming. But the professor will make time to help his students whenever possible.
Great course! I learned alot!
o.oV
I look forward to taking more classes from him.
Vern's course is challenging and tests to see if the student is motivated enough to persevere and learn.
great course, you learn a lot. Great teacher who helps his students when they are having trouble or needs help
I'd like to show him my appreciation somehow, i've never before taken a programming class although i had always had an interest within the subject hes given me a great learning experience and I KNOW ill pursue this as hopefully my career now. I can only hope to become as knowledgeable as him.
he's awesome
He is a very nice and helpful person.
a great programming instructor...
He taught me a lot about the class.
N/A
He is awesome! Very helpful!
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, because although some of the material is somewhat difficult to understand, Mr. Takebayashi is ready to assist students.
Yes, if you have or had experience in programming he's the professor to take, and even if your new to programming he'll still take the time to help you the best he can.
Yeah! He is one of the best professors on campus and you will learn alot because he will make sure you learn!
Yes, Mr. Takebayashi is very helpful as an instructor.
Yes, because he is truly interested in his students.
YES, because his labs are EXTREMELY helpful, his lectures are FILLED with valuable information and he knows what he's teaching about!
yes, because it's material that's good to know
no, being on the student side of the desk it is very difficulty to understand what he is trying to teach. this class is more like a self study class. I have to depend on so many outside sources to get the help i need to learn this subject.
Most definitely, in fact I already have! I have a friend taking a similar course at KCC and he is suffering and detest programming because of it.
Yes, because he teaches good
Yes
ofcourse...cause he really help students in the best way he can...
Yes. Very easy to get along with and will learn a lot from.
not for Java, because he assumes we understand when we didnot. yes, because he is fair, and always willing to help.
I'd recommend him to other students because his class was pretty interesting. Learning programming is difficult, yet attending his classes, doing the different labs and projects helped me to understand the material easier.
Yes, because students will learn a lot in this class.

None
Thank you so much for a great semester!
PLEASE KEEP TEACHING WITH YOUR ENTHUSIASM AND LOGiC BASED APPROACH ITS THE BEST CLASS I HAVE EVER TAKEN!!! no joke
MERRY CHRISTMAS...
Thanks
for the final project, he could have groups from beginning of class, then do small pieces weekly of the project with the labs. that way we would have better understanding of project 3. for example, 1st lab was to create a simple window. from there he could have added menus. then next week menu items. then Active listener, then action event method, with action command to run individual menu items.
I learn another awesome program language.

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He always helps students when they are stuck. Gives enough time to complete labs and projects.
Professor Vern gives handout to students that explain everything what we'd do for the next session. The handout is very easy to understand. If something we don't understand, we just go ask and he explains everything clearly.
HE is open for questions at any time and encourages email communication for help outside of class.
He is always there to help out students that has hard time understanding the concept of Java. He would come to students before students come to him in most occasions.
Would always ask to see if we had any questions
He gave pretty clear examples on certain subjects.
Professor Takebayasi was always available for extra help when needed. He continuously gave us students opportunities to improve our grade by adjusting his coursework. There is no reason why any student should fail this class. Professor Takebayashi gave more than enough opportunities for us to pass.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
Things that I like about Vern's teaching style are that he is a excellent ICS professor who know quite a lot about his subject. I learned a lot from him about basic algorithm which I never learned before. Things that I dislike about Vern's course is that it's very hard. If you don't listen well, you wouldn't understand enough to do the exam.
Very helpful and fair teacher, respects students and is very knowledgable about material. Dislikes: Lectures are long and he types very fast sometimes. I would like to work with other classmates sometimes as well too.
I wish the class hours were longer. The subject itself is very complicated, so it would have been better if it was longer like CENT110 or CENT132.
He explained things very well, but programming wasn't my best class and it showed
I liked everything.
Professor Takebayashi is very smart and knowledgeable about the course material. I enjoy his teaching methods by showing in depth examples on how to apply the concepts to our labs and projects.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
Good teacher, but lessons were well advanced. Not enough time to understand the material.
He is an exellent ICS professor, and he also very passion about his students.
Excellent and very smart teacher. He is always enthusiastic and seems overall happy to teach class everyday.
He is a good teacher who enjoys teaching and loves working with Java. As a course, it is a bit tough for people with no programming background.
Very thorough
The course was fun, and Vern definitely made things pretty easy to understand.
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, if you're well familiar with java. No, if you're trying to learn the concepts because this class seems advanced and almost as if we're suppose to know the material already.
I would totally recommend to other students who already knew about basic Java and want to study on a higher level.
Yes. The level of help he provides and how involved he gets to help students understand the subject is very good.
Yes. He is very helpful. He knows a lot about Java and always looking to make it better.
Yes and no. This class is twice as hard from ICS 100 and when you are taught by two different teachers it was difficult to adjust to both types of teaching
I would definitely recommend Vern because he's a very clear and active professor.
I would recommend Vern to other students only if they are willing to put effort. Vern is a very fair professor, but students shouldn't expect to pass just by showing up to class.
26. Other comments:
Vern is very helpful, just needs more time to understand certain lectures.
I wish there were more night classes and weekend classes even if it costs more. I want more people to see the benefit of being in school while having a full-time job. There are more things you could relate to, which makes it somewhat easier to understand the programming as a whole.
None
Probably the best ICS instructor at HCC. Keep up the great work!!

1. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
He clearily explained his motivations for teaching one model of web app development (ruby/gwt/sql) over another (php/sql)
Vern is very knowlegable about the subject and will sit down with students to solve problems.
Mr. Takebayashi gave clear examples on how to complete a certain task on labs and projects. He provides positive feedback and is willing to assist students to complete projects.
2. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
Tough course if you've never had experience with the subject
I highly recommend students to enroll in courses being taught by Mr. Takebayashi. I hear students complain that computer programming is hard but Mr. Takebayashi made this course fun and interesting.
3. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
yes
Though the material for the course may be challenging, Vern is always there to hep
I highly recommend students to take courses being taught by Mr. Takebayashi because he made the subject fun and interesting. In rare occasions, he'll talk about the importance of effective communication when working in a group to complete a project. I found thus information very important.

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
After he shows the class what to do, he asks the class if anybody is lost, and if any one is lost, he helps them out.
He demonstrated all the worksheets in class, and he also explained it well.
During his lectures he would stop and ask if the class is doing ok. He would walk around to see if there was anyone in the class who is confussed.
He helped us when we needed help.
Whenever Mr. Takebayashi introduces a new assignment he goes through it step by step with the class on the overhead or on the board and if anyone is having problems, he will ask if the students need help and assist them to make sure we are on track before continuing on with his lecture.
By taking the time to individually help the students who were obviously confused.
He always made sure any questions were answered if anyone had any.
He is able to help everyone on the class assignments.
He takes time after lectures and helps individuals who were slower to catch the lesson
He always made sure that if we had questions or needed help, we'd get the answers to it. He was easily reached by email.
He always ask if we need help and if we didn't he would see us one by one an help us individually till we understand.
He shows his concerns by helping each student that did understands the material within the class period and goes and teaches one on one each student the material and you can tell he enjoys teaching and helping his students achieve
He was always there for help in class and out of class. He made sure that the class was on tract and understood the material taught.
he stops in the middle of lectures and actually helps us out
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
I liked that Mr. Takebayashi show us step by step what to do on computer application and that he has showed us a variety of programs.
I like the way he explaining thing because he gave more example and made it really interesting.
I liked the fact that he taught us step by step while operating on the projector screen.
Sometimes I felt a though he explained things to quickly and when using the overhead projector i could NOT keep up. Its hard to try and do what he is doing if he goes toooo fast. Just needs to slow down the step by step instructions so everyone can stay current on what he is doing.
I enjoyed his way of teaching the course. He moves at about the right pace and always makes sure that we understand what he is teaching us.
He kept things very interesting via the difficulty of what was learned. I feel like i didnt waste my time.
He made it very easy to follow along with. As long as you came to class and paid attention.
He helped everyone that struggled on the assignments
He gives real world examples of his lessons to help the students understand the lessons
Vern is a a good guy, but he moves absolutely way to fast. I spent most of the semester trying to keep up. And when I tried to stop him by raising my hand it was like he didn't even notice. I felt like I wanted to head butt the computer at the end of 75% of my classes. I sent an email trying to ask to be excused from my absenses do to a kidney stone I never received a reply. I am a punctual student I'm not a kid who's trying to get away with cutting my classes. Not every student is a young computer wiz or a really tech savvy person. I think that's what he needs to understand. Once again I don't thik Vern is a bad person or teacher, I think he just expects everyone to know alot about computers before entering his classroom.
Nothing he is a well thought teacher.
I liked his patience with teaching his students and his character that he harries himself with. Makes a very good learning environment..
I really like that he was there to guide us through our assignments.
he explains everything clearly. and he speaks well about the subjects taught in class.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
He is a very patient teacher and goes over instruction clearly.
He is a nice teacher. Not too personable but hey he's here to teach and not socialize i guess.
In this course I enjoyed learning about calculating a monthly payment for a loan. It's an important skill to learn and will be helpful for the future.
n/a
He clearly knows the information he is teaching about.
N/A
he is the best choice for ics100
MAHALOOOOOOOOOO FOR EVERYTHING. HOPE TO SEE YOU AROUND. GOD BLESS.
Not much but to keep What he is doin now ...
Very organized schedule!
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
I would recommend Mr. Takebayashi to other students because he is an excellent teacher, and teaches many very helpful programs.
I think he just has to keep doing what he does now.
Yes. His course work is demanding and his exams are difficult but I have learnt so much so I would recommend him to other students.
yeah i guess i would.
Yes I'd recommend as a teacher. He made sure everyone understood, answered all questions from students before moving on and gave one on one help to whoever needed it.
Yes I would because he is easy to understand and he is approachable when you have questions during his lecture or questions on the assignments.
Yes. I learned alot about excel more than ever.
Yes because he helps everyone majority of the time.
Yes, because the course is not that difficult
yes, he will teach a lot in the short amount of time we have in the course. i learned more in his class the the other times i took ics100 and failed.
Yes, the class is very useful. We learned things I can apply to my everyday life. He is a great teacher, very knowledgeable and helpful.
:):):):):):)
I would recommend him to other students because from taking his course I learned that he has great teaching skills ..
Yes, because professor takebayashi made learning simple. He is very clear in the lecture and was always there for help.
yes because he cares about the students

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He makes time for his students,........He is very approachable when you need his help.
Vern always asks the class if there is any questions. Vern is always available either after class or via email to help out with questions/labs/exam/ etc.
He would not finish the class until we haven't learned anything from that day.
he helps us out when there is something we dont understand
Made sure projects and assignment objectives were clear and accomplishable within a given time frame.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
I think he is very professional and evaluates very fairly.
The type of subject that must be taught is very hard to teach to most people. Due to the complex process behind Java, it maybe hard for people to grasp some of the terms. Vern did explain the definition and gave clear explanations. For me, it was just that I can't grasp the concepts fast enough, so it was hard to understand.
I like the teaching style of Vern.
i liked how he actually went around answering any question we had about the topic
Clear and precise.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
One of the 2 best CENT teachers at HCC.
Excellent professor. Always available for assistant
I like to know more about the course
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Absolutely~!
Yes, very patient and always there to explain things to the students. OFFERS HELP and GUIDES/EXPLAINS the ANSWERS (if the student is literally bagging their head on the table). I have had some professors where all they offer is basically ' look it up on -this- ', where it felt like Google was our teacher.
I would recommend Vern to other students because he taught us very well
yeh he really cares about his students

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
kept us updated with our progress.
He was always glad to answer questions?
He is available for help outside of class and tries his best to explain if we don't understand. He would watch us individually at different times to make sure we are doing the right steps and will guide us.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
gave us practical assignments that we could use in the future
his course was awesome
He explained lessons in depth.
He was very clear with teaching us the calculations and related it to practical lab so that we can understand the concept. He never rushes us if we still need help. He also does a good review on the after we take the exam so that we can understand the mistakes and study them for future exams and lab use.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?

He's a great teacher! Hopefully he can teach another one of our classes!
