We went over the results of the survey in class, and discussed ways we as a class and teacher can improve.

We also discussed ways to improve the survey.  
  • English application    
  • class vs. personal
  • mental health letter (not Y/N)
  • ”My teacher teaches things that are important me”: stupid question
