It’s hard to remember sometimes why I put in so many hours grading, with all the tedious time I put into giving detailed and constructive feedback to help my students grow and develop as individuals for my class, their future courses, and their future careers.
Therefore, this page is a repository for me to remember all of the wonderful feedback I have received in 2018 from my students. The student names are omitted for privacy, and are numbered starting with the first message received:
Student 1: Hello Professor,
I would like to say thank you for all that you have done for me. You have given me some great information that I can use along the way in the future. All the great feedback you have given me during the course of this class will be very valuable to me and I will use it to the best of my abilities. It will be because of you that I will become better with my writing process.
Student 2: The professor is an excellent instructor who gives individual attention and great feedback, as well as guidance for the upcoming assignment. The course was really good and challenging.
Student 3: Thanks Jenny!
Appreciate all your support and patience during the past five weeks. I can definitely say that I am more conscious about my writing now, even when I’m posting on social media. I was actually posting some fun facts about the 4th of July yesterday. I cited all my sources Smile in case any of my Facebook friends decide to ask me more about my posting, and to prove that I got my facts from established sources. PLUS, it get to practice citation.
All the best!
Student 4: I loved Ms. Jenny as my instructor. Her work was broken down so that I as a new online college student could understand. She gave GREAT feedback that helped with the future assignments and even though we have only been acquainted online, you can tell she is a good person. I will miss her as my instructor.
Student 5: Jenny is very knowledgeable, she gives us very helpful feedback on our work. She’s warm and is always on top of things. I personally find it amazing that she gives us our feedback really fast, considering that we are writing essays.
Student 6: The faculty has been awesome and always ready to help. They are very flexible.
Student 7: It is hard to put feeling into words, yet everytime Jenny wrote to us I felt it was with a smile. Even when she was telling me what I needed to improve on she got right to the point, but still made the constructive criticism sound nice.
Student 8: Even if Jenny disagreed with something that was said, she would say something like “that is a very interesting point Brandi! Why do feel that way?” It made it easy to discuss with the class because she made us feel like our opinions matter, not just trying to grade us. You can tell she really wants us to learn the material.
Student 9: Jenny is very respectful, thoughtful and encouraging. She has set a high bar for the teachers at Baker. I have not found another instructor has great has her yet.
Student 10: I loved Ms. Jenny as my instructor. Her work was broken down so that I as a new online college student could understand. She gave GREAT feedback that helped with the future assignments and even though we have only been acquainted online, you can tell she is a good person. I will miss her as my instructor.

She gave us activities to do in the discussions so we could understand the material. Her feedback on our assignments was awesome. I wish she could teach all of my courses because she is excellent, personable and you can tell she loves what she does.
Student 18: Baker really needs to find more instructors like Jenny Mark as she truly takes the time to help each student and wants them to succeed in her class. I have take a couple dozen online classes at Baker and Jenny Mark is by far the best. Other instructors for ENG 102 need to take notes from her as to how to teach this class.
Student 19: Professor Jenny Mark is a great professor! She was always quick in response when I emailed her questions. She provided helpful tips throughout the course and I love that she would send out reminders to her students that an assignment was due. She provided great feedback when turning in assignments and provided helpful tips to those who were struggling with some of the course material. Although the course was extremely heavy on homework (as to be expected with only being 8 weeks), Professor Mark was very helpful and used the course material required. Even with it being an online course, I can tell she strives for her students to succeed.
Student 20: She was so helpful and so nice! I always felt comfortable sharing what I wanted to share!
Student 21: I wanted to make sure grades were posted before I sent this email. I want to thank you for taking the time to provide very detailed feedback on each assignment. Before starting SNHU in July, I had been out of college for 7 years. In the beginning, I felt so out of touch with everything college related, but I’m getting back into the routine of it now. Feedback is so very important in a situation like mine. English is the foundation of every other course I will take while in college, so again your detailed feedback was VERY appreciated and meant the world to me.
Student 22: This was the BEST instructor I have had yet. She was very involved, sent USEFUL links and information. Always graded quickly, fairly and clearly. You knew exactly why you got the grade you did and how to improve next time!
Student 23: This instructor went above and beyond when giving feedback. I understood my mistakes and was given suggestions and sources to correct issues. I feel like her feedback will help me throughout the rest of my education. She also graded assignments very quickly.
Student 24: Professor Jenny was an excellent instructor through the whole course. She always responded to my emails in no time and she made sure that I was all set with any help before I went on with any of the questions I had that are related to the assignments.

Student 30: This was an excellent course and Jenny Mark was an amazing teacher. She always provided great feedback and encouraged students to ask questions. I learned so much in this course. I was very nervous because I have not taken an English course in ten years. She made me feel confident and I feel I really progressed throughout the course
