As of 2016, I think she's still teaching, no? The description says she's retired. Hm.
Anyhow, I had her in either my sophomore year or my junior year.
Here are some things I remember about her -
- usually late to class because of dean responsibilities, I presume
- direct teaching style
- somewhat "spoon-fed" the kids. The questions she asks when reading a book are easy. I feel like they're almost unnecessary.
- I recall quite a few essays
- sarcastic "Guess what!"

Amazing teacher, cares about her students, she always looks for opportunities to help her students succeed. However shes a harsh grader. I had a 92 on pupil path and she gave a 90 she drops grades. Her material is useful always and I would love to have her again. She teaches lot and doesn't play around. Never goes off topic.
