“Trevor was very organized, thoughtful, respectful, and effective. We covered so much in this class, and it is thanks to his curriculum design and structure of the class. We had lots of meaningful discussions and critical thinking assignments, and I really appreciated all the opportunities Trevor provided.” — 2020 student
