Selected student comments:

    "I enjoyed the activities we did in class, and liked all the examples she used for us to understand better. I know economics can be hard to teach, but she made it look so simple. Because of her, I have a better understand on how the world depends on economics and the importance it has on our every day life. I do want to mention how I like that she made us understand the application of the topics, rather than the theory. She's an excellent professor and I'm glad I took this class from her."
    "Very fun assignments that really make you think about the subject in real world terms."
    "I really appreciated how helpful she was with answering questions. She responded quickly to all my emails. I can tell that she loves what she does."
    "Loved all the extra things that you brought to the table. The app games to try our hands at game theory. Auctioning items to solidify course concepts. The combination of PP[t] slides, use of the white boards, experiments, lectures, sapling, the extra videos. All of this created an amazing experience and made learning fun and enjoyable. Thank you and I hope you keep it up!"
