Q3 - What did you like about this program?
XXXXX XXXXX is a good teacher. I learned many things in Landscape Horticulture that I never thought of. My goal
is to graduate and also be able to spray lawns and or work on a golf course or for a city.
I liked the fact that we covered so much ground of the field of work we are studying. I think that we covered a lot,
while still going in depth with each topic we learned. I liked most of my teachers because I truly believe they had
our best interests at heart, and there were mutual grounds of respect.

Q4 - What would you change about this program?
I would want a lot more hand on activities. You can tell me until your blue in the face in how to fertilize a lawn but
you cant learn by not doing it. We need to be taught how to change oil on machines, how to mix pesticieds, and
other things.
I would change the teacher that I had for Organic Plant Production and Horticulture Production, XXXXX XXXXX. I
truly think she didn't like being there because it reflected in her teaching abilities. I think that most of the other
students feel the same way. I don't believe she respected us, and I don't think that my time spent in her classes
were time well spent. If I could I would love to take back the time and money spent on those classes.

Q6 - As a result of this program: I have learned effective communication skills.

Q28 - Provide any comments you have about learning this program outcome.
I loved that class.

Q35 - CONCLUSION Please use this space to share any other feedback, comments, or
suggestions about your experience at Western Technical College.
I have enjoy it for the most part. Part of problem is if our classes in just landscape horticulture take up full time
hours when you add in the general classes that is over full time. For me, that was way to much to take on at one
time. That needs to be fixed. Some of the classes even cut.
I think that overall, this program sparked something inside of me that I didn't know was there. I think that it really
opened my mind with how many things I can actually do with this degree. I am so happy and thankful I got to have
XXXXX XXXXX as my teacher, as well as be with the people I know. I think that this was a great experience and I
can't wait to see where my future leads because of this program.
