Life changing instructor right here. She was one of the first instructors to hold me to a high standard in my academic work, but was also one of the first instructors to hold me to that high standard vis-a-vis a teaching style full of intense passion and care. To do poorly on a Gaede assignment was to disrespect her life's work... Something I wish I experienced more often.
She can be quite pompous and combative. She is not always open to hearing other points of view, especially with regard to literary interpretation. Seems very "stuck in her ways".
Gaede is the embodiment of educator. Do NOT take her class if you intend to BS your way through it. DO take her class if you are an engaged, willing student. It will change your life. BEST teacher.
Fun, energetic, and not the typical boring, uppity high school teacher. She's good at facilitating class discussions, and is always willing to help outside of class.
She was the best English teacher I ever had. Truly inspiring and VERY challenging!
Spicy teacher, wonderful attitude! Effective in class discussions. No busy work homework only reading and tests or projects.
