Student Comments:

This class was an amazing and great class. Debbie is an incredible, understanding, efficient, assertive, and helpful instructor. She was available at any time for her students and really made the classroom setting enjoyable. I have only heard wonderful things about her from former and present students. I am sure every student would love to have her as an instructor again in the future. She is truly an amazing teacher and a beautiful person in every way.

It was an absolute pleasure to be in this class! Mrs. Busby was an amazing teacher.There was always feed back on every assignment. It even goes beyond that, it was individual time where we were pulled into the hallway to talk about our assignment one on one! I've never had a teacher do that before and I really tried to reflect it in my writing since I knew we were going to discuss it without anyone else around, some might refer to this as accountability, I'll refer to as a truly caring teacher. She taught the class with a servant’s heart, an open mind to ideas and smiles that went on for days. Mrs. Busby, thank you for an amazing semester, your wisdom will follow me through the seasons of life!

This is the first English class that I have enjoyed being in because I learned a lot. The instructor was the best instructor that I have appreciated to have because she was understanding and showed us how to enjoy the work we did. I have already recommended her class to other students on campus and off campus.

I really have disliked English but Mrs. Busby has changed my view on English.She is a great teacher and is very efficient explaining assignments. She’s a wonderful instructor!She also always gives students honest feedback on assignments and she's always willing to take time to explain anything that’s needed!

It was a great course and the instructor actually made the class fun. I didn't mind going to class everyday. She thought up a lot of fun activities to go along with what we were learning and that made the class a lot more enjoyable. ***

I can honestly say that this was by far my favorite English class and favorite class ever taken at Chandler-Gilbert.I absolutely loved this class, the professor, the students, and the assignments.

***

You’re a great teacher and I love your teaching methods.Everything seems hard at first until you actually do them, then you realize it was easy and you feel so accomplished. I am going to miss this class.
