She would pick favorites and always made you watch videos rather than teach you the material herself. Always bragged about being a Columbia graduate and talked about her life and tried to be everyone's parent. She always got in everyone's business and if she didn't like you, she'd go out of her way to try to make you fail. Overall she wasn't a help and the peanut people videos she showed taught more effectively than her. She would say rude things in a sweet voice and was overall very two-faced.

Not a good teacher at all. She picks favorites and lets them do whatever they want, and then she picks on everyone else. She is very condescending and will not hesitate to give you bad grades if you dare contradict her or even think badly about her. Will spend 110% of the class time talking about going to Columbia or working for the UN, so much so that it all sounds rather scripted. Overall not a good teacher if you're looking to 1) learn or 2) have an enjoyable time. Booooo

She made it easy and fun. Not too difficult so it was good. I had her one year and then skipped her. I was glad to have her class again. No boring.
