Thank you again for coming to teach at UMD this year, your ability to communicate information makes you the the most effective educator I have had in my five years of college classes.

... thank you for a great semester! It was my first time having you as my professor and I enjoyed the opportunity to see management through another lens, not to mention the humor was always something that made class much more fun.

Thanks so much for being an awesome advisor and professor! I really enjoyed taking classes with you and appreciate all the help over the past 2 years. It was a pleasure getting to know you.

I would like to thank you for a great semester! I have really enjoyed your class, I wish more teachers would adopt your style of teaching. The real life examples were very helpful and made it easy to retain the information.

Thanks for a good semester. Your teaching techniques are very interesting and different, which was a great change after many boring lectures the past four years.

I just wanted to let you know that even though a lot of people take this class for granted, I found it to be one of the most beneficial classes I've ever taken.  So many times throughout the semester I'd be reading the book and be amazed by how much the material applied to real life.  With that said I plan on keeping the textbook for a very long time and using the case method to help my career. Have a nice summer and good luck to you.

I just wanted to take the time to thank you again for a great semester ... I was skeptical when I took the class at first, because I was not sure how the class would benefit me ... I feel as though I am able to view my current workplace with a different set of eyes ... Similarly, you were able to present the material to us in a comical manner, which made it that much more exciting!

Thanks again for a great semester. I really enjoyed the lectures and probably took away more practical advice and real world knowledge from this class than any other class in college.

I just wanted to say thanks for a good semester in OBM.  It was definitely a challenge at times, but overall I learned a great deal of material.  I especially want to say thanks for the effort you put forth in your teaching ... your real insight on the topic.

I'd like to say thanks for the great semester.  You are one teacher that actually is able to make class more than just an in school experience.

I would just like to take this time to thank you for an awesome semester. It was great to have a professor who brought a sense of humor into the classroom to break up from the seemingly monotonous weeks as they pass. Thanks for making my senior year more enjoyable.

I just wanted to take a minute to say that I thoroughly enjoyed your OBM class this semester, and I feel like I really learned a lot of valuable information that I will retain due to your use of examples and enthusiastic teaching methods.

You were a great teacher in my organizational behavioral management class.  I know sometimes your class doesn't laugh, but you really are a funny teacher.  You do a great job!

This was a great class and I am glad I took it, I learned a lot about leaders and what it takes to become one.

Thanks again for teaching this semester, I took a lot out of your class and it will help me professionally and personally.

I have enjoyed this class and have learned a lot that will help me in my future.
