As I look back I see that the homework did help me even though I didn't want to do it.. I used the information she posted on Blackboard. She was available during spartan time and after school.I always knew my grade thanks to the progress reports.She does care about her students. Don't cheat or be disrespectful she doesn't like that.

I agree that she does play favorites a little bit but that is only if you get on her bad side. Also. she signs a lot of homework but it helps you prepare for the quizzes and tests. Throughout the year i think she has improved in teaching and is willing to help us out of class.

Isn't professional, she on numerous accounts has brought up issues in her personal life, both in the class room and afterschool, to her students as if expecting sympathy in return. I've learned more teaching myself and getting help from my parents than I did in her classroom. She plays favorites BIG TIME, and isn't very forgiving if you so much as give a bad first impression. Be prepared to spend a lot of time on homework. Over spring break alone she assigned 14 pages of review material.

She tells you to save your questions but never gets back to you. You can eat and play cards in the back of her class and she'll never even notice. It's an easy class, though...

Very boring, plays favorites bigtime, if she doesn't like you the first time you meet her, you're doomed. Didn't really learn much, she didn't try too hard to actually teach the material.
