Joanna is rude, arrogant, and entirely unapproachable. She does not seem to like teaching at all, and complicated the material she presents, rather than clarifies it. One of the worst professors I've ever encountered.

Multiple choice questions on the final exam are insanely difficult and worded so that even if you understand a concept completely, two answers can still be correct because of grammar.

Joanna is unapproachable, arrogant, and unfriendly. I disliked coming to class because her lecture style was very dry. The biology department should consider finding a replacement for her because this is an important class many students have to take.

While the midterm was hard, both her and the other prof (Kajiura) contributed equally challenging questions. Others also claimed Wilson's portion on the exam was hard but I found it easy. She explains concepts well but isn't very engaging or approachable.

I really dislike her teaching style. I found she was rather rude, very unapproachable, and seemed to really dislike her students. Her material was completely off slides, and following was often difficult. Her test questions were hard and mostly unfair.

Not a fun/enjoyable prof at all. Lecture notes are straight from the textbook. Stops lecture if one person is talking. Does not seem approachable.

Awful, unwelcoming professor. There were three professors teaching the course alternatively. And out of the three, she was the worst one. Many students skip the classes because of her. She discourages questions sometimes. Overall, a bad professor.
