The classes i have chosen are on the Human Servicse field of study.In the classroom my teachers are their to help with any obstacle i may experience,they stay after to lend an ear and give guidance where needed. They listen to the students imput of how to better structure the classes so there is no student left behind.Class size is very imortant in order for the teachers to assist in a one on one basis as needed and they give special attention to those they see who might be struggle with the class. Regardless of their own schedules, they take the time to put the students needs ahead of their own.The class schedules are spaced in a way as to give the students ample time for study and homework between classes.The professors personally take time with the students in assuring that the daily interaction in class is benefitial for all.
