She is easy to understand and she helps out when needed
I had Cough as a teacher in Photojournalism a couple years ago. Some people--important people in journalism, that is--seem to adore Cough. However, me, being someone small on staff, can count the number of times I've spoken to her on one hand. She is not at all involved in teaching, it doesn't seem like she knows anything about photography, except she randomly cuts in with harsh critiques when she can be bothered to look up from her computer. Maybe she does something, but it doesn't seem like it
I know a lot of people adore Cough but my experience was just not the best with her. I did not enjoy the class and she didn't have enough material. People in the class weren't willing to do things, so the environment was fairly negative. Whenever we had a project, people would stress a lot because we weren't given clear directions. Sorry not sorry.
One of my all time favorite teachers. Teaches life skills not useless information like so many other teachers. Helpful to everybody who asks. One of the greatest.
Whoever goes by the name "Cough" as a professional - Susan Massy. Disgrace as a public school educator. Pathetic.
The experience was bad. You either belong to the "club" of favorites, that take her class semester after semester and get A's without doing much, or you are an outcast. She will pay no atention to you.
Honestly the best teacher I had at Northwest. She knows so much about journalism its scary. Although she does care about winning awards, she cares more about improving her student's journalistic talent. I could go on and on about how amazing of a teacher she is, but I'm restricted to 500 characters. You will love her. She is a second mom to me. Her class does require a lot of time, so make sure you are 100% committed. Welcome to Journalism.
She would be nice and helpful to you if she saw some sort of possible journalistic talent in you, but otherwise she probably wouldn't give you the time of day.
cough is great! but in dvd you teach her and ourselfs but she gets the people we need to help in for us she is very nice but you have to devote alot of time for the class so make sure but its an easyA
She is the most amazing teacher i have ever met in my entire life. she is truly wonderful.
Susan Massy has a clarity and understanding that makes her an excellent teacher
Cough is the most intelligent and inspirational teacher I have ever had.
I took yearbook with Cough as the advisor and loved it, I very much appreciate her teaching and being so dedicated to the program. She rocks my socks!
Greatest woman alive. As long as she advises the journalism program, everyone should get involved.
She good. She taught me to write good. She learned me good.
I've Graduated and I still think she's a great teacher!
Yay Cough! She was the best teacher I had in high school!
