Prof. Jerma Jackson’s 398 section is hailed in the Daily Tar Heel for inspiring an undergrad who wants to be a history teacher. Of Jerma, the student says: “She really does genuinely get to know you and wants to help you be the best writer, the best student, the best thinker that you can be,” Hill said. “And she was just a really inspiring professor. She made me feel the way that I want my future students to feel in my classroom.”
The article also notes that Prof. William Sturkey won the most votes as “professor of color that has had a large impact on your UNC experience” in a survey of students.
