Back in the 1980s when I went to college, the only way you could learn about a professor was by word of mouth. Todays students use a site called “RateMyProfessor.com”. After each quarter, I cautiously take a peek at this site to see what ratings my students gave me and I was humbled to see these:
“The legends say he never sleeps…” You can’t hide in Bruce’s class: he gets to know you, and what you need to succeed. I have never met a more attentive teacher, he is almost always available to help any student. Never have I felt such a sense of community , or had so much fun in a classroom. The world needs more teachers like Bruce Elgort.
Bruce is my favorite teacher at Clark. He is funny, and he makes sure to pay attention to each student. He teaches a handful of classes, so choose him when you can! Always jokes around, but is really good at what he does and will drop everything to help you. even at 3 am on Twitter. Even on final projects. Beware: Will make you feel like family.
Bruce is literally my favorite teacher at Clark. He is great at demystifying difficult subjects, and keeping the tone of the class playful. He, is always available to help students with troubleshooting projects. I would recommend anyone in the CTEC program or on the fence about joining, to take one of Bruce’s classes.
Bruce always inspires you to push the limits of what you can do in his class. He is encouraging, helpful, and understanding. He knows the abilities of all his students, pushes the advanced ones and patiently works with the beginners. I feel he is on of those rare people who makes the lives of everyone around him better for being in it.
Bruce is a great teacher. He is more concerned about his students learning than just trying to trip them up on test. He is available practically 24/7. I e-mailed once at 2:00am and had a reply in 5 minutes. I wish he taught more of my classes.
Bruce is by far the best instructors I have had. Yes the classes he teaches are challenging due to subject matter but he does what ever he can to help. This quarter he was at a family event in Denver and when I needed his help rather than wait until he returned he just sent text back and forth with me for an hour to help me and answer my questions.

It’s nice to have positive feedback instead of negative BS.
Way to go Bruce. Never doubted you. Glad the ‘kids’ appreciate your efforts.
if they only knew you would wake them up to sing happy birthday too. Excellent reports and long may you receive them.
I would expect nothing less: these lucky kids are enduring what we’ve all had to put up with for years. Congrats prof 🙂
This is all well-deserved praise. I’ve not taken any of your classes, but I’ve certainly learned a lot from you over the years. Thank you for being such a good teacher! 🙂
Way to go Bruce!
I wish I had more professors like you in college. I went to a small liberal arts college and was 1 of 8 CS majors, and 1 of 2 females. I hated just about every course and only stuck with it because my parents would only pay for 4 years of college and I was too far in to change majors. I got lucky in that I found a help desk job at the place I’d interned at for 2 summers and they then promoted me to software developer, where they taught me Notes development. I had every intention of quitting after six months because I thought it would be just like my college courses. I was wrong and am still here almost 10 years later. A good professor would have made all the difference.
