I graduated in 96 & she was my favorite teacher. I was lucky enough to have her twice. She's not only really smart, but she cares about her students. Being one of them was an invaluable experience.
She got really off topic sometimes and neglected to grade work correctly. Very annoying.
Even 9 years after I was last in Ms. Converse's class I rely on her methods and approaches for analysing difficult material critically. That longevity is far more important than a "boring" day.
i think she's a pretty good teacher, hard to understand at times. Very smart but probably not born to be a teacher.
She had loads on content, but she never graded any of our work... good thing, depending on whether you did your work or not.
Her class made my western civilization, college class seem easy.
