Comment:
Hands down one of the greatest Professors, he doesn't play stupid games. Genuine professor who is not concerned with the things other Professors find crucial to giving you a miserable college experience. I hope Professors read these so that they can see what students think of them, and I believe everyone should think this great man.

Best teacher on the face of this earth. He is interested in in making sure all of his students leave his class a better writer and he uses fun interesting ways to do so. He doesn't treat class like its his job, he seems to enjoy instilling knowledge and that is the true mark of a great teacher.

Hands down one of the best classes I've yet to take! If you love writing and have to take EDUC301, TAKE HIM! He is so passionate about the material and brings a lot of excitement. I usually looked forward to this online class more than any of my other classes. He can take awhile to get grades back to you, but it won't matter--you'll love the class!

Rus is *amazing*! The first day of class, he spent 15 minutes making sure we all knew each others' names. All of our assignments are fulfilling. It's really too bad that Rus' class is moving online next semester-- I've been at Towson for years and he is definitely my favorite professor.

He makes writing fun, or atleast tries too! He wants everyone to do well, so he will help you if you ask. His classes are very laid back and talks about a lot that is going on that would relate to teaching in schools. Great class!

Okay, if you need to take Education 301, I would seriuosly suggest that you take this guy; I hardly did anything and still passed w/ an "A". Well, I mean, I wouldn't suggest that you follow what I ahve done, but still. This guy has a motto of not grading anybody in his class lower than a "C"!
