She was a great woman. I don't dare say anything bad about this women, as she is currently awfully sick. She did have trouble controlling the class sometimes and her teaching ways were a bit messy.She remembers her students

There were times where I knew more about the history than she did. The wrote random notes all over the board without any central connecting idea, which made note-taking all but impossible. The only way to pass her class was to read the textbook with understanding and patience. She's very nice, but she can barely control a class filled with people who aren't even that talkative. Honestly, she's not that good a teacher. A very nice woman, but her teaching skills are wanting.

I love this lady, justified learned nothing about the actual subject she taught us but she taught me so many other things. She taught me real life lessons, and she's quite smart. I enjoy her lectures and when she cares about something you can tell. Her class is more of a discussion than an actual classroom.

Ms. Lamotta is awesome! She's such a sweet, nice, and caring person and she always nods and smiles to you in the hallways! :) She gives an okay amount of work and her tests are fair. She is very intelligent (especially in Economics), and you can go to her if you have any problems with anyone (even teachers and deans) in school! You are lucky if you have/had her. She has made me look at things in different ways and I learned A LOT from her. I believe that she should be the President! :P
