Prof Finlan is the best professor I've ever had. I had him for both ED 200 and ED 225. He cares greatly about his students, and has so many stories that add to the class. I learned so much from him.

Best prof so far. VERY nice man. He gives really useful advice for classroom use. Some feel they don't get much out of his class because he relies on personal accounts and stories rather than a textbook, but let me tell you, the knowledge I gained from him far surpasses anything I could have learned from a text book.

Great prof. Very personable and caring. As long as you do the assignments you shouldn't have a problem passing the class. He doesn't even dock you down on points if you turn in an assignment late. Very knowledgable, and really cares about his students. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

An amazing teacher; you must take him for any education class you can! Make sure to read each novel assigned because you will be tested on both. Very personable man and cares about his students. Best teacher I have had at GVSU.

Best professor at GVSU. I took him for 220 and 225. He made me want to be a good teacher. His classes really enriched my life and I am so happy I had the opportunity to be in his classes. I feel like I am a more understanding person because of him!

Great prof. You can tell he actually cares about his students. Be sure to read the material assigned. Test can be difficult and you're required to score at least a 70% to pass the class.

YOU MUST TAKE PROFESSOR FINLAN. Best professor/teacher I have ever had. He takes time to get to know all of his students personally. I learned more about life than anything else in his class, but he has a lot to teach and is very smart. I have never had a professor that is easier to listen to.

A really great guy. Cares about his students. Loves to rant and hear his voice... sometimes went over, which wasn't great if you had a 6-9 downtown. Easy A if you actually try. Tests are actually a little difficult, so STUDY! Book use VERY limited, my advice is to share with someone in your class because it will be a waste to buy that thing!

Take Professor Finlan!!! Best professor I have had at GVSU. Very helpful, works to get to know his students, every class is interesting, very understanding. I learned more things that I can apply in my life from him than the rest of the classes I have taken combined. No tests, just asks your opinons on things, lots of review assignments. Take him!!

No other words but AMAZING teacher. He is the reason why I am still at gvsu, so I can have him for a few other ed classes. I never skipped/missed one of his classes because I LOVED GOING. He is the only class i've got an A in (shows how much i hate school) and I seriously love going to his class. TAKE HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Amazing prof! VERY willing to help. Gets to know each student individually & actually wants each and every one to succeed. If u know u want to go into teaching, he will only get u even more excited & fired up about it. Has LOTS of experience & even if you're not sure you want to teach, he offers very helpful advice, etc. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

i had professor finlan for both ed 200 and ed 225, other than a couple repeat of stories i would take him for every class possible if i could. he is by far the best professor ive had here at grand valley and is the easiest person to talk to. he does what he can to make sure you get the best grade possible and his classes are the kind you never want
