What should I write?

  • Did/do they inspire you to consider a certain career path, graduate school, community activity?
  • Do students talk about how good they are outside of class, and what do they say?   Do they seem particularly committed to student success, and how do they do that?
  • Do they teach you in ways that make it exciting for you to come to class and easier for you to learn and understand the course material?
  • What do they do that supports students and their learning above and beyond their work in the classroom? (e.g., engaging with AHSUM or department/faculty/university student associations; offering meaningful, innovative, and engaging events/experiences for their students; providing mentorship)
