I'm in college now, a med. student and I owe it to CK. An Amazing teacher who pushed me to excellence. I think of her often. Too bad she is retired.

She is very hard, with large projects like "Emperial Scroll" and the "Rennasance". She is honors history and doesn't really care about your feelings (corny, I know). Try to avoid here if you arn'tgood

I'm sorry but mrs. c-k is not a great teacher by my standards. ALthough her strictness is great in the long run, she has many favorites and her directions are (sometimes) unclear.

I hate her. As T.A. and in class. Constantly took me and the other T.A.'s to the back room to tell us what we were doing wrong. Gave us all labels on the spot.
