Easiest class I've had in my life. It's extremely easy and i got over 100 1st semester and about 98 2nd semester without trying. When you do spanish with her you'll think it's the easiest thing in the world but at Spanish 2 it'll be really hard. She thinks she teaches fine but in reality she can't. It's not really her fault tho because thats just her personality and she's really old. If you get her I would suggest transfer out or the summer before you take spanish 2, take classes in the summer.

Sturgeon is very unprofessional unorganized. Her "teaching" style is straight from the book with absolutely no interest in trying to connect with the students. Also, 5-10 minutes of her class are wasted due to her "meditation" routine she makes us do

Can't teach, better off learning by yourself.

I don't know how she is a teacher, im sorry but its true. She is not helpful at all and is always absent. Her unhappiness with herself really makes her kids the same way. Transfer is you get her.
