Thank you Mr. Machajewski, you are an awesome online instructor. You respond quickly to questions and you grade our work really fast, I wish all Instructors were as attentive.
Hi Instructor Szymon,
I write to you today to indeed say thank you for your constant support and
invaluable intructions through out this course. I loved studying every bit of
it and it was very interesting as it opened up my mind to think about the many
things that make web programming work. I especially thank you for the feedback
you gave me in the learning journal which shaped my thinking. Indeed I look
forward to meeting you probably in Web Programming 2. Your website is
fantastic! Keep the technology up! I love playing guitar and piano too! Have a
great day you and your family.Thank you very much.
You've been a wonderful instructor too and a source of inspiration to many of us if not all. Thank you.

I had a great time learning web programming throughout these 8 weeks. I would like to thank you for your inspiring guidance throughout the course. I must say, you were one of the most participative and innovative instructors who taught me during my 8 terms at UoPeople. It is no exaggeration in any way; I am simply impressed by your effort and the little things you did to keep me and my fellow peers to stay engaged and motivated.

It is really cool how you are one of the professors who looks happy every time I pass them in the hallway. Keep it up!
I've taken CO courses pt for about 13 years and what you're doing it exactly what that department has needed for years. Exciting!!!
You are my favorite instructor! The first instructor to ever mention certifications and jobs! Real world stuff.
Thank you instructor for your timeless effort, corrections, advices and guidance through out this course. You are indeed a good instructor; one among a million. I remain grateful.

My sincerest gratitude to you sir. I have really been motivated and guided well in this course. I dare say you have been among the most influential instructors I have come across in this university and I hope I would have the privilege to be guided in other courses before I complete the program.
Thank you very much and I wish you every success you may aspire to.

I wanted to email my thanks for the chance to learn a very valuable skill set from a very established educator and teacher. I do want to meet you in person some time as you have so much knowledge to teach and are a very smart person. I just wanted to let you know I had to work in your class and have walked a way with a whole new outlook on Linux and have made the choice to use Linux as a second operating system and I am no longer afraid of linux. Thanks for being a great teacher.
Anyway, thank you for motivating my son this summer. You opened a whole new world to him so exciting that I had to take this course to see it!! I'm sure that you hear when people are unhappy with your class but as the mother of 2 of your summer students I want to say thank you for reaching them and making the subject matter something wonderful!!! Thats why when my scheduled monday night class dropped and this class had 1 opening I had to take it!!! This is the only class I have that is not 100% per my transfer plan!! This is just for fun! I can't wait!!
