You are the one who has taught me so much, I will use all of what I learned in my classroom. You are one of the most meaningful teachers I have had in my life. Your method of teaching is awesome! You have made a difference in my life and how I look at eduction, when I teach. I am grateful to have had you as an instructor in furthering my education. Thank You Jackie for caring about your students, encouraging us, and educating us with things that matter in the classroom.

Jackie has been one of the few teachers who has challenged me. She represents an extremely dedicated and respectable teacher. It is a privilege to have been a student of Jackie because I have learned so much from her teachings and leadership.

Jodi, Undergraduate Student - Interpersonal Relationships
Your praise is humbling. Thank you. This class has been a lot of work but a pleasure to me. It's the first class I've ever taken where I've had the freedom to easily express my creativity. This last assignment, in my mind was far superior to any final exam that I've crammed for. In order to do it, I had to review and master everything we've learned and figure out a way to apply it. The process was a hundred times more enjoyable than cramming for the test and achieved far better results since it was pleasurable to me and asked me to actually use the information. Every assignment allowed me to relate to the materials in my own way enabling me to use my multiple intelligences. I liked the many choices of self expression I was offered to fulfill the required work. We, the students of this program, have been charged with a difficult task. We are assigned to be "change agents" in our New Mexico public school systems. If we are all working together to create an inevitable change, we will prevail.
