inspire people to learn and that is a task many teachers dont possess, so
I would just like to thank you for that. Cari
- I can
honestly say that you are my only teacher that takes into consideration
the feelings and thoughts of your students.
Thanks so much!!!!
Thank you for everything this year...for being both a
great teacher and a person. I have thoroughly enjoyed and benefited from being
a student of yours. You are truly the most remarkable professor I have
encountered in my academic journies! God bless you and your family.
It would be my pleasure to keep you informed in regards to the new
radio-station. Thanks for all your interest and support! You one cool cat, sir!
I also am finishing a lil' gift for you from Stina and I...i'll let you know
when it's in order. Stay in touch and if there is ever anything I can be an
assistance or aid with anything please don't hesitate to contact me. See you
around sir and talk to you soon! Ewan
Thank you so much for offering such a wonderful class.
I have never learned so much in one class, and actually retained the
information then what I have in 3181. Will you still be around campus next
Oh and by the way, I
really enjoyed the class. I usually get bored taking full year
courses, but this one was great! Thanks for approaching it in a unique
way! More profs should do that.:
- I want
to thank you soooooo very much for your references and recommendations. I
got into the MA in Legal Studies Program at Carleton with a scholarship and
TAship worth $30, 000 for two years!!!! THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH. I DO NOT
KNOW HOW ELSE TO THANK YOU. I WOULD NOT HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT YOU!!!!! I'll
pay you back for your kindness and help someday:):) ayat
you are so the best professor in the world! and I'm not just saying that,
all teachers should take lessons from you!. I would love to re do that
question, as I really want an A in your course for my final grades. Please
let me know when you want me to do it and it'll be done! I'm working right
now but will be off around 10pm this evening when I will check my mail
again, and as well in the morning. I work all day tomorrow but am off at
6pm, so I could easily do it then.. Thank you so much!!!!! Alayna :0)
I wanted to write you agian and thank you for the great lectures. I also
want you to know that I wish I spoke up in class, I just feel I am not as
informed as the others are and I do not want to look silly. I know that no
one will judge, but I don't want to ask a bad question. Also, sometimes I
get so caught up in my thoughts, that I don't have time to ask questions.
I am telling my friends and family about what I learn and I am always
thinking about what we spoke about.
I do have one question. It may be difficult to answer, so you do not have
to if you are not sure of what to say. I feel as though I am getting this
education that tells me about what is going on in the world, and what is
wrong, but I feel as though I cannot do anything about it. I feel as
though I should be helping others, but I am not sure how. Are there any
organizations that you would reccomend me looking into? I wanted to be a
lawyer for a long time, but I realize now that being a lawyer is not about
moral justice. I am just wondering what can you do with a degree in
Sociology and Social Anthropology and what ways can you make positive
impacts with society and the world in general. I am currently going to
finish my BA and apply to get my BEd. That way, I can still help people
and make a positive impact. Thanks for listening and see you Wednesday.
Thank you for all your attention and assistance...you are a platinum
stature prof!! Long live Julian!! Thank you for marking my exam so quickly
and getting me the results. I also wanted to apologize for Christina and I
not being able to make it to the last class (today) but we are overloaded
with papers, exams and preparing for our month long journey to Mexico!
Also Christina and I attempted to sign in to the course the other day but
it was still a "closed section" . I don't really know what this
means or implies, but I have faith that we can still get into another one
of your super courses! International Justice should be extremely
On a final note...Christina and I have a small token of our appreciation
to give you. Just a lil' something from us to you...what would be the best
way to give it to you?
Cheers and raspekts...
I just want to take this
opportunity to thank you for such a wonderful class.
I think you are an awesome
professor. You have been so direct and so honest in teaching us vital
information about important issues that revolve around us in the world today.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful and enriching class.
YOu have made it so constructive
and so easy to learn in that it truly has made a difference in the way I look
at teaching in University and research interests as well. I think it would be
great in April to give you a copy of my thesis after I am done to read it. I
would definitely appreciate your opinion and feedback.
Thank you again. God bless you and
your family. Good luck with your future endeavors.
have proven over the past several months to be a very sincere and fair
man. Thank you also for letting me know me marks up to date in the course.
You have been a great professor and really enjoyed taking the course. I
have already tried to get into your classes for next term but they are
full - you are popular it seems!!! ANyways, thank you again, I really
appreciate everything. I will be in touch.
Thanks again for the word I really
enjoy your class as I feel that most others that are in it feel too.
It really means a lot that you are so kind, not everyone here at Dal is
Thank you so much. This is great. Thank you for
looking at it so quickly. I will come by and pick it
up. I am using these marks to get into law school, so
this will help me a great deal. And to think, I was
nervous about taking a sociology course because I had
only ever taken one before.
I also want to say that you have been a great
professor, and I have enjoyed the whole class very
much. It made me think a lot more than any other
course that I took this semester, and I really enjoyed
doing the work for it.
Enjoy your Holidays!
like your style of teaching.
- Hello Dr. Hermida. I
just wanted to write you and tell you how much I enjoyed your classes this
term. I think you are a great professor and really show concern for your
students. Thanks again and have a great summer.
Morning Prof. Hermida,
Thank you so much for your kind and generous feedback! I have never
received such positive comments from a professor.
See you Wednesday - and thanks again for your kind words.
has been a tremendous learning experience for me, academically and
personally. Our group topic was so interesting to us, we were excited to
do a good job. Christina is a very exciting personality to work with and
Ewan is so good natured. The other Christina was a great group leader and
helped us lay down very specific outlines for research and also took it
upon herself to rent the protest video.
Personally, it was so beneficial to work within a group where I didn't
know anyone at first. It's nice to know that people can be so different in
background, age, or field of study and still have social activist
interests in common. Thank you for the opportunity to work with others in
the classroom, it's a great way to learn!
Thank you also, for being an inspirational professor and for getting us
excited about our studies. This class rocks! Take care, see you Monday!
I want to thank you for being so
fair with the submission of my portfolio and my mark. I thoroughly enjoyed your
class this year and feel that I benefited greatly from it. Have a wonderful
summer and thanks again
I just wanted to thank you so much for helping me today. I am so fortunate
to have such a kind teacher who is so concerned about his students. You
really helped me alot and I really appreciate it.
thank you very much, I wish I had knew you earlier on. You are a very
compassionate and caring person.
just got some great news that I was offered admission at the University of
Ontario for medical school. I wanted to let you know that I will be headed
there in the fall. Thank you so much for your help!
I have recieved and read the letter you sent and am very grateful
generous description of myself and my work. Im sure that it is perfect and
would be very pleased to present it at my interview. Whenever you have a
to print it off, let me know and I will come and collect it.
Thank you again professor Hermida. The letters of recommendation
that you write
are an important part of each student's success. For myself, and for us
thank you so much.
See you soon,
Thank you so much for sending me my grades, and thanks for the great
hope you enjoyed your conference in Russia. Have a great summer.
- I wanted to say thank
you for a great class this
semester, I really enjoyed it a lot. I found you to be an
understanding professor. Thanks very much and good luck! Stephanie
Thanks for the response. You are easily one of the best professors I have
over the last four years. I appreciated the advice you gave me regarding
McGill. I doubt I would have gotten in otherwise.
>I would like to take this opportunity
to thank you for one great year. I have >never come across a professor such
as you, someone who really shows passion for their students. I thank you as
well for making things much easier for me as a student and for being extremely
flexible. I could only wish for an entire university to be based on professors
such as you. I hope you understand that

all of your students, and we all praise you as such a wonderful, kind and

engage with younger people. I hope you enjoy this basket full of
goodies, this was the least I could do to show you my appreciation.
a lot and really enjoyed the class. Goodluck in the future.
You really were an incredible help

> Best wishes,
I know it is pretty late, but I just read over your comments on my test,
and it led me to write this e-mail. I have never been in a class
structured like this culture, rights, and power class, but today, and
others, I could not help but notice it really works. The students really
sit there and listen and then when a discussion question is asked...watch
out. Your style of teaching is very unique and, to be honest, I think
remarkable. It encourages learning, class participation, and public
speaking. How many teachers can say that!?
I hope all is well, and I'll see you in class tomorrow. Sarah told me that
she is presenting, which should be great.
- I like
the fact that we are not only dealing with Canada – there are other
countries in this world and it helps to know about them so that we can see
where Canada stands amongst them. Also, the
topics covered so far are current – they are problems that we need to deal
with now and that is refreshing as so many professors teach the same
lectures year after year.
- Prof. Hermida,
Thank you for your assistance I truly appreciate what you have done for
me. I wish more professors were as understanding as yourself.
- I just wanted to say thank you for giving me this
motivation to work
hard and study hard in your class and in others. I wanted to show you on
test that I will not slack off or bullshit for marks. I have, and will,
hardest for your class out of my respect for you as a teacher and to
I really feel like I belong in the academic university world this year,
the most part, I owe it to you. Thank you for being a teacher that cares.
three hours of class and e-mails go a long way.
See you next week.
- Dr. Hermida,
You are an amazing wealth of knowledge. Thank you so much! One day I might
also like to borrow your brain, or at least many of the things inside it.
Oh, I guess that is what lectures are. Thank goodness, Im part way there.
Thank you again,
I completed your course in crime and criminal justice this past school
year. I really enjoyed and learned alot from that
course and especially from you as a professor.
I just wanted to thank you for all the effort you put into teaching Crimes
Criminal Justice. I feel your style (lecture, participation, test
is an extremely effective way of teaching and learning. Last night I
putting together the final pages of my portfolio and I could not believe
amount of material we covered. i feel that I learned so much in a
period of time and did not feel stressed. Because of the way things
presented and practiced in class, I am sure that this material will stay
me and not disappear as many other courses I have taken.
It is very obvious that you enjoy what you do. Thanks for sharing
knowledge and I hope you continue to do it.
Bye for now,
yet again to my favorite professor! Lynn G.
am now taking SOSA 2180 with you and I am really enjoying it and I would
really like to take another class with you. Victoria.
know you are keen to get into Sociology of Law and disappointed not to be
permitted in, but we have thousands of students and only 70 seats in that
class, which is taught by one of our most popular professors in one of our
popular areas. Professor LDB.
wanted to thank you for such an enjoyable semester! I just completed my
BSc this semester, and of my 4 ˝ years at Dalhousie University, I have yet
to come across a professor who genuinely cares about their students the
way you do. I really enjoyed your class and loved your zest for teaching
and relating skills. I am glad I got to experience that ONCE before
graduating. Thank you once again and enjoy your holidays. Sarah .
students enrolled in many of his classes, we feel strongly that Professor
Hermida’s role at Dalhousie is essential. Professor Hermida’s unique
teaching philosophy and passion for his students’ education is both rare
and immeasurable. His efforts to support his students in both their
academic and extracurricular endeavors far surpass his professorial
responsibilities. His commitment to his students is evident in the numerous
recommendation letters he has written as well his overall support for his
students’ post graduate work. As students working towards a minor in
Dalhousie’s Law and Society program, we believe that Professor Hermida’s
knowledge, expertise, and experience have contributed greatly to our
education and furthered our interests in the study of law. Sam and Carly.
enjoyed your class, not only b/c you were a very enthusiastic lecturer,
but also b/c you are on the best professors ever! Aunshul.
- You are an asset to Dalhousie and embody everything
that all great teachers should strive towards. Thank you Dr. Hermida for
your great class and influence on my future teaching style. I plan to be a
high school teacher and embody the essence of your teaching methods. Mike.
- He finds a way to connect with everyone in
the class. He's fully committed to students. Any problems, academic or
not, you can talk to him. Anna.
- Professors like you make school the most
enjoyable place. Danielle.
- I just really wanted to comment on the structure of the class
as well, you make it very friendly and interactive. Students learn so much
better through activities and videos with a message! I think you are a
WONDERFUL teacher and I hope you continue to show students how
passionate you are about teaching!!! Zana
- You are one of the few professors that made it a
priority to get to know your students! Thank you. Kerri
- You have really been a great prof so far! Angela
- This is a great course and I really enjoy learning the criminology aspect of crimes and why crimes are committed and by whom and for what reason....it is great and I for one am enjoying this course. Dolf.
- You have a special gift for teaching and I am so blessed for having you as a teacher. Brenda
- you are a fabulous teacher. Shannon
- I am also very appreciative of your availability to your students for help with any of their concerns it is nice to attend a class where the sole objective is not just to pass along information to the students but really help the students understand the information being passed on; thank you for you for this. Malene.
I like law and I like your teaching! Sayuri
