It was obvious that she prepared before teaching every course was showed her dedication to the course and it was greatly appreciated.” (Arab-Israeli Conflict, Winter 2012)

“Diana was a great teacher. She helped to point out the important parts of the lecture so that we knew the most important parts and took time out to help students. She would make a great addition to any university should she choose to follow the academic path.” (Arab-Israeli Conflict, Winter 2012)

Excellent. Discussion was incredibly useful in this class to make sense of lecture. Sometimes there was a lot of dense information in the readings and lecture, Diana did a great job of organizing and presenting it in a way that made sense.” (Arab-Israeli Conflict, Winter 2012)

“Diana was excellent. Without her help, I probably would have done terribly in this class…She was really helpful, incredibly knowledgable, and more than willing to meet outside of class to help students. Easily the best GSI I’ve had here (I’m an upperclassman), and I’m disappointed that I won’t be here when she becomes a professor because I would love to take a class with her as the professor.” (Arab-Israeli Conflict, Winter 2012)

“Diana was an excellent GSI. She is extremely knowledgeable on the subject matter…Her discussion was very informative and stimulating for students.

Diana was one of the best and most helpful GSIs that I have had at U of M.” (Introduction to Comparative Politics, Fall 2011)
