"Get ready to read" "Gives good feedback" "Participation matters"

Im just gonna cut straight to the point .if you don't like to read DO NOT TAKE HER. she assigns 2 long chapters to read every class for the quizzes next class. If you don't like taking quizzes every week i don't reccomend her either. The quizzes are tough so you have legit read the chapters that are assigned you can't just skim through 50 pgs.

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Gives good feedback" "Inspirational"

Jane is phenomenal. She truly cares about her students, the assignments, reading material, etc. She runs class primarily through group discussions. A bit more reading is required for this class and you need to show up. Jane has clinical wisdom and I wish she shared more insight in that regard. Very genuine- I take any class with her that I can!

SOW4108 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I'm a graduating senior and literally only took this class because it was at night: not a SW major and didn't know what I was getting myself in to... PLEASANTLY surprised! Jane is a fantastic professor, she truly cares about every single person in her class (it helps that the class is extremely easy) This ended up being one of my favorite classes

SOW 5335 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Jane is very personable and caring. She is very direct, and students are chastised for texting, talking to others, etc., which I thought was a little overboard...we aren't in middle school. Also the quizzes were unhelpful and not a reflection of what you know, so another negative, but I liked her very much, and her grading was generous.

5712 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A+

Knows chemical dependency field quite well and brings interesting insights to it. Class wasn't too hard and she grades generously. Extremely courteous toward students and is likeable. She does seem to have a lot of soapbox moments which are rooted in personal experience/ opinion.

Jane is always helpful and enthusiastic. No surprises in this class so if you stay on top of things you'll do fine. Moderate amount of reading. She expects you to go to class but is easy to approach about anything you need help with, she really cares about students. I'd definitely recommend her!

Great professor. She really cares about her students. If you plan to skip class a lot, do not take any of her classes because your grade will be lowered. I would highly recommend her!

I had her for Chemical Dependency. Great teacher. Great introduction to the world of chemical dependency. If you are struggling she is more than glad to help. I would recommend this teacher and any course she teaches to anyone.

crisis intervention. you have to go to every class and take a quiz. she doesn't lecture often and when she does it is straight from the book. the quizzes are hard but the essay is easy

Crisis Intervention- Jane is an awesome teacher, but really demanding. Attendance is mandatory and there is a heavy amount of reading. Two textbooks. Overall a good class, but probably not if you want to skip class a lot

Best professor I have had yet! She is inspiring and positive...I love her teaching style! She brings a little bit of her funky and passionate sides in her lectures. She assigns a lot of work but it's for our benefit and I learned a lot in her class. Will definitely take her again!

Just one of the many professors in social work that don't know anything about what they teach. Avoid!

Some students like her because the course is cake. How did she become a professor? This course is not a critical examination of chemical dependency issues in the way a graduate course should be. It is a course in self-disclosure and testimonials. I can get this material from Ophra.
