I personally don't think she's a half bad of a teacher. She's a nice Lady. She dose talk a lot, but you do get what you need to know if you just read her power points and take notes on them. I personally find that the class is only hard for the kids who don't pay attention and talk all period, but that's just in my class.

Didn't like her too much. Sometimes got off topic and talked too much about art and music.

I mean no exaggeration when I post this but I have never ever listened to any of her lectures or whatever and I managed to pass the class with a C. I looked forward to this class, I get my daily nap.

I think she's lonely and it makes her feel good to have people to talk to, so she lectures us. She is also a feminist who hates Bush. She complains alot but does nothing.

she is boring because all she does is make us take notes every day. the only thing worse than that is the group activities. learn some new ways to teach.
