Academics Rating

All of my teachers were pretty great except maybe 2 or 3 over my four years. One issue was with a teacher that taught math and I had a VERY hard time understanding him. He didn't seem to have a very good English skills. I ended up doing OK in the class but mainly because of outside help. The other two were just teachers that rubbed me the wrong way and were not particularly good at what they were teaching. The staff within the CIS program is pretty strong, I would just suggest that they change their classes up a bit to make them more valuable to someone on the job.
