Student comments about the teacher:


Sarah is also an amazing instructor. You can tell that she really cares about teaching and has a lot of experience. I really liked her class.

Mrs. Spann was a great instructor having loads of experience of her respective field which applied to the course.  Spann did a good job of conveying many ideas of the course and facilitated an environment to openly discuss these ideas.

Sarah is passionate, lighthearted, and very knowledgeable. I thoroughly enjoyed every class. I enjoyed Sarah's sense of humor. She is respectful and tolerant of the student.

Sarah Spann was an amazing professor with tons of knowledge about wide variety of subjects this course covers. I love that when she was stumped by a student's question she wouldn't just try and make something up to seem knowledgeable but admit she wasn't versed in the specific subject AND would do research and follow up with the student about the answer to their question.
