Student Testimonials

“In all honesty, I have learned so much from this course, and I have loved the way that we went about learning. To be in a course that is not quantitative, yet qualitative and participation centered is such an awesome thing. Julie was encouraging, and looked for participation from students, but she did it in a way that was very open and inviting. I have had classes where professors just get up and lecture, and then talk to you like you are dumber than a sack of rocks. Julie however, was very knowledgeable, and shared what she knew, but she NOT ONCE made anyone feel like what they had to say was not important. Even if the person had a very hard time communicating in English, she made them feel valued and important, and made sure that she understood them. I know Julie was teaching about leadership from the book, but the fact that she actually practiced what she preached made the world of difference for me in this class.”

“She got us brainstorming ideas in class and used class time wisely. Her teaching style was beneficial by providing variety in content.”

“I thought the instructor did a great job of interacting with the students and getting to know them personally, it made the class a safe environment to speak in.”
