ISU Teaching Feedback

This seemed like as good a place as any to record some encouraging feedback received from my Financial Mathematics students from my 3rd semester teaching at ISU (18 A's/B's, 2 C's, 1 D):


Hi Professor McDonald, it's Maria Blair! Thanks again for all of your help this semester.


Hello Professor McDonald, this is Jack Jackson and I would like to know what my grade for the class was. Thanks again for being a great instructor. I appreciate all that you have done for us.



Thanks for a great semester. I really enjoyed this class and it was a great start to my actuarial career. Could you let me know my final exam score and final grade? Thanks!

Hello Mr. McDonald!

Thank you so much for the time and effort you put into teaching this class. It means a lot that you helped me have confidence in myself to try it again this semester. Thank you also for all of the actuarial job insight! It's great to hear about experiences in the job as well as the process that it takes to become an actuary.

Dear Mr. McDonald,

I just wanted to update you that I took Exam FM this morning, and I was successful in passing! 

I appreciate all that you did for us this semester. From patiently walking through concepts and problems to listening to our feedback, you did a great job teaching. I enjoyed your class a lot this semester, and it has certainly impacted the beginnings of my career as an actuary, so thank you!
