Shannon was awesome! Super helpful and insightful. Don't take this class if you're not into reading critically and writing. Heavy work load, but totally worth it!

The Intro to Fiction Writing course I took with this teacher gave me a lot of insight on how I write my stories as well as introduced different kinds of genres written by other students. She introduced many different types of authors to give us a sense of pace and writing style to draw inspiration from. Overall, great class.

She is awesome, if you like to learn, read and write take this course. She is very flexible and understands you have homework in other classes. You can miss class as long as you do extra credit to make up for class points that you could miss. As long as you read you will do well. DONT fall behind in homework. She doesn't dock you for lateness...:)

She is very helpful and willing to be flexible with your schedule. Course was very easy as long as you actually did your work. She is very open about her own beliefs and WILL share them with you. Turn your work in on time and she'll love you.

Mass Comm is a fantastic class to fill your Art requirement. Gibney leads some great discussions and is pretty loose when it comes to deadlines.

Overall a good class. She is a good teacher and the class was fun. I did get the feeling she didn’t like me but did not grade me based on that. She very helpful likes what she teaches and cares about the students. She is opinionated based the other reviews has become more open minded. Takes forever to grade assignments that is my only complaint.

She can fall behind but she is always giving updates on how the class will go. you are allowed three days of absence. Pretty easy going with lots of videos.

She is a great teacher, and although she really likes to focus on racial prejudice in books, but that is okay, because she really enjoys that and at the same time I learned about English. She is really intelligent and aware and offers A LOT of extra credit!

I just finished an intro to creative writing course online with this teacher. I have taken other online courses, this was the worst. She did not teach at all, just gave us readings. Its an intro course but the workload & expectations were way higher than necessary. Take the course with her if you already creatively write, not to learn how.

She was the best teacher I ever had! Absolutely brilliant, and also kind and caring. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to really improve their writing skills. I think that the only people who didn't like her were not very open-minded, and did not want to put the work in.

I agree she talked about racism and diversity way too much. I thought I was taking english, not racism 101. It irritated me because I really like english, but I felt like I learned way more about english in HS classes than in this one because all she talked about was racism, barely anything to do with improving writing. The class was super easy tho

She talks a lot about ethnic and racism but less about English. I felt like I had to agree with what she saying or else she singled me out. For one of my papers, she bashed me out and ripped me a new one. Lots of homework for an online class. I would not recommend her. I'm sure she's a great person, I feel that she needs to be more open minded too

She is very intelligent and very caring. Yes, she's opinionated and talks about diversity, but why is that bad? I am better at writing papers after taking the class, and for the record, the homework is definitely doable, no more than average.

DO NOT take this class with her. First of all I had more homework in this class than my other 3 classes combined. Second off this is not an English class, it's basicly just a way for her to stand on a soap box and preach about racial inequality.

i would not recommend her. she talks more about diversity and racism than English. on more than one occasion she hinted at the fact that she thinks most of the class was prejudiced and singled out students in the class. she was sarcastic and made you feel dumb for asking questions
