Watermelon PROFiles

Ok, this is a listing of some UH teachers (maybe not spelled right, no time to check all of them) and a real small profile.  Ok, now for the BIG disclaimer, please, this should not be used as one of your main deciding factors of whether to take a teacher or not.  This is because my source may have a different opinion than you as to what is "interesting" or "hard".  Also, don't blame me if these teachers aren't like their profiles cause most of these profiles were given by other people, not me.  If you would want to contribute a name(s) of teachers at UH, or of what you heard from someone, email me at dninomiya@hotmail.com.
I heard there was a site like mines, Rate A Prof, but not sure how good.  You can check it out.  Now, without further adieu, the Watermelon PROFiles.
