1A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

It's the worst English teacher i've ever had (I come from ESL). She gives u back the essays until the end of semester, and she tells you that you are getting a C or D . She makes you write journals that she never grades, read books that you never discuss, not helpful at all. Internationals better watch out! Save Ur money

Do not take her class. At the end of semester, half of students dropped her class. She is so strict and you are going to group work every time.

She is very selfish in the sense that she sees a student is too advanced for the course and will keep them there. Other teachers offer and follow though with assisting students who are too advanced for this level of English. Don't take her class she won't help, makes you get in groups and nobody is ever prepared! She never teaches just group work

She's a good teacher but expects too much. Definitely do not take her if you want to skim by, but if you want to learn she's good.

make sure you make it on time to class and to every class she will notice even when you think she wont. make sure to pay attention and you'll do great in the class but even if your great if you miss a couple days it will affect your grade immensely.

The first english teacher who taught me a lot about writing an essay. Very helpful and considerably fair. If you wanat to learn, take her class. Many people in my class wished she taught 1A.

She's ok but not very approachable if you need anything. 10 min journal writing journal sessions at start of class. The whole class we get in partners and nobody knows what to say about the discussion very annoying. Alot of ESL in class so just retake your ace ment not worth it. Expects too much from a college student and does not reciprocate.

I think she's a ok teacher and tries her best to explain and help, but she likes top help her star students most even when others need help. She thinks her class should be your #1 priority in life, which is not practical. Also very harsh when grading!
