I was fortunate enough to have Dr. Bell as an honors professor. I realize that most people looking him up aren't interested about that class, so I'll just say that he was really straightforward in his expectations and he really cared that his students did well. I definitely would take him again, regardless of the class.

He's my advisor and I had him last semester. He's a great person and a fairly easy professor. He does talk about his family a lot but he relates it to course material most of the time. I would suggest taking him for any education course.

Nice guy, but can be a jerk, at times. You need the textbook for his class to do well! He picks favorites, luckily, I was one of them. He talks a lot! He uses PowerPoints to teach, but they barely help you with the tests. I am not sure if he still has open note tests, but they were when I had him 3 years ago. Thank goodness!!!

Dr. bell is so smart but is a huge jerk! He picks favorites and often tells students that he doesn't think they would be a good teacher. He told me I wouldn't be able to be a teacher and to look into different majors. His tests were SO hard... no matter how much you study they are still hard.. I felt like all of the questions were trick questions.

Dr. Bell is an interesting professor. If you go to his office hours he will DEFINITELY help you. His tests are very difficult. This class was extremely stressful for anyone in it. He presents the material in a way that requires you to UNDERSTAND not just memorize. He is very well known and overall a good professor however sometimes not consistent.

He is a very nice teacher but the tests are hard! The tests were supposed to be all online but 4 out of 5 of the tests were done in class. Talks about a lot of personal experiences which makes the class interesting. I was absent for a week due to illness and he was very helpful and understanding and always answered my emails. Very nice!

Spends too much time talking about his children and his personal life and not enough time on the material that will be covered on the test. The tests are extremely difficult and the only way to do well on them is to memorize the chapters. The child study and case study directions are very vague and unclear. Do not take him!

Dr.Bell comes off as a hard-ass, but he really is a nice guy when you speak to him. He's always genuinely interested in what you have to say and wants to help you in anyway possible. Tests can be really hard if you don't read, he'll take word for word questions from the book. So read, speak up, and you'll do fine.

Dr.Bell is an awesome teacher worth taking if you have an 8am class! The child studies are a bit of a pain and the directions for them are a little unclear - but it's not impossible to get a good grade if you do your work.

Great teacher! He is truly an expert on the material. The tests and child studies can be a little difficult and time consuming, but as long as you take the time to learn the material you should be okay.

He is awesome!! He is so much fun, especially in the morning. He'll keep you awake, and really relate the material to things that you actually know. He gets to know all of his students, and really wants you to succeed. He is definitely worth taking! You won't regret it!!

Dr. Bell wakes you up in the morning, keeps on smiling, tells stories to connect the topic to his students, helps you if you need it no matter what, gets to know his students and loves what he does. He's got a passion for teaching and is the real deal, he knows what he is talking about. You will LOVE him.

Dr. Bell makes class interesting, but he assigns a lot of work. He doesnt give back most of your papers so you cant see how you did.

Dr Bell's classes are always so much fun.You are rarely sitting around listening to him lecture. There is a lot of hands on learning that makes it fun but also teaches alot of things that you'll need to know as a teacher.He isn't your typical teacher who takes role and forgets you.He gets to know all of his students & truly cares about their succes
