Dr. Voltman only teaches World Literature for 9th grade and I am so glad that I won't be taking her class again. She is very sweet and kind and she really wants to teach her students. She is definitely an educated woman but her class is incredibly BORING. She constantly talks about herself. Which is fine except that her class is so far behind. All we do is peer-review. She takes forever to explain things and treats you like a 5th grader. She has good intentions but her class is a bust.

I don't mind all the time she talk about her self because it's less time that we have to do work. But over all I have become a much better writer by being in her class. And I always think her grading is fair. She never wants to see a kid fail. Which can get annoying when that kid REALLY deserves to fail. Little homework, most of our homework was assigned by our student teacher.

"What did you do over the weekend. Nobody wants to talk? OK, I'm gonna spend the next half hour taking about my weekend."
If you take her class be prepared for that to happen. Other than that she is a very nice person and will make an extremely boring class as interesting as she can. She really tries, and you will have a good experience in her class, especially because it is so easy. Good, easy teacher.

The only thing I learned about was her experience in South Africa the summer before and how some teachers try too hard to get their class to become a family. She treated us like we were underprivileged inner-city kids who needed her guidance

ALL SHE TALKS ABOUT IS HERSELF. It's so annoying. She tries hard to make class interesting but it ends up boring anyway.

I am an advanced writer and english student forced to take this RIDICULOUSLY easy class. I could ace this class in my sleep. She is very sweet but can be both dull and boring. She treats us like we ar

Very egocentric, but one of the more interesting teacher's I've ever had. She tells interesting stories and tries to make the curriculum interesting no matter what we are reading.

Her class is ridiculously easy. She was kind of weird and awkward when I had her, but she's a sweet woman.

Easy easy class. She's a little insane, but interesting none the less. Every so often she goes into these funny tangents about meeting hobos or something. I feel like I'm a third grader half the time.

She's really sweet and she tries hard to make class interesting. She's a little odd and the class is WAY to easy to pass but overall I'd rather be in her class than a lot of the other ones.
