She's very energetic and is great at keeping people's attention. You need to read the textbook to do well on tests, but she doesn't check that you read it. She's a pretty fair grader. I heard coming in that Kakounis was better, but people didn't love her by the end of the year when almost everyone loved Bensen.

Okay so she doesn't MAXIMIZE classtime and go over every detail in the textbook. That's my only criticism. But the truth is, that's how the majority of teachers are, and even more so with college professors. BUT she makes class ENJOYABLE by delivering great lectures. Her classroom is always an engaging historical experience, and not dull like it would be otherwise.

Can't say that she's as fair as she proclaims herself to be, considering that there were repeated questions of the same test--to a very minute degree. But she's a lively and welcoming teacher--a bit intimidating but very clever, up to date, and personable. I like the way she teaches. It reminds me of the days where lectures didn't have to be stoic.
