QUALITATIVE FEEDBACK
On Quality of Teaching

Ms. Mayfield is an incredible ENG 101 teacher. She made the subject bearable for her STEM-oriented students and gave us a lot of freedom in terms of what we wrote about. I was able to explore things I was interested in within the confines of a specific format, like annotated bibliographies and ethnographies. The assignments did not feel like busywork, but more like an exploration of a format through the lens of an enjoyable topic.

Ms. Mayfield was exceptionally good at working with students. She kept in contact with each student and assisted them with every project. She also made sure that everyone felt like their
opinion mattered and thus created an inclusive learning environment.

Dear Ms. Mayfield, I may not have known you for long, but you are the BEST reading teacher I've ever had. I mean it! You have taught me a lot in these 5 weeks.

Dear Ms. Mayfield, Thank you so much for giving my son the tools he will need to be a great reader. He is so excited to read his way through kindergarten. Thank you!

On Classroom Management & Community

I really enjoyed the structure of the class, being improv to get the day up and running then followed by writing into the day, a way to get out some of the many ideas floating around in our minds. The order was really helpful because with it being an early class, it was nice to wake up my body and then my mind before going into Power Points and information.

Ms. Mayfield was accessible outside of class, as well as in the class. She made every effort to help students and make sure we understood the material. She was extremely prepared and organized, while leading a fun and interactive class.

Thank you so much for teaching my son this summer. Your class was phenomenal. I wish his elementary school had teachers as great as you. The way you handled the discipline issues was top notch. I'm completely impressed. I tried to think of a criticism for you to improve upon and couldn't find one. I sincerely hope you teach the class again next year and if so, I'd sign him up without a second thought! Thank you again for being such a positive part of his education. He tends to be afraid of teachers but never seemed to be with you at all.

Ms. Mayfield is an extremely talented teacher. I was nervous to take this course since I have always hated English. Her class dynamic, however, was very different and made me feel excited about coming to class each day. She is an extremely supportive teacher, and I always felt comfortable in her classroom.

On Conferences & Feedback

Ms. Mayfield was very helpful and cared a lot for each individual students. The conferences were a big help and showed compassion from the instructor. She was always open to answering any questions and open to any ideas students had. She was very understanding as well.

The instructor is very passionate about English, which makes working with her so helpful. Meeting one on one for each essay has really helped me develop my own writing style. She emphasizes working to strengthen our writing, rather than the end goal being just to get a good grade on a paper. Therefore, focusing on the writing process has helped my writing grow.
