Overall Evaluation:
Observer’s Comments:
Aisha showed a great deal of confidence and handled the class like a seasoned professional, although
she is relatively new to teaching. Students respect her and contribute very well. She is obviously
passionate about the topic of entrepreneurship and this is evident in the way she discusses the topic in
class. Students are aware of this as well and therefor participate very well.

Suggestions for Improvement:
Although Aisha is new to teaching, she handled the class very confidently. Aisha is presently on
the HADEF program and it is clear from the way she handles the class that she is learning a great
deal on this program. My only suggestion is for her to keep using the skills she learns on the
program as she is doing right now.
