ENG 211 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Awesome teacher. She really knows her subject and some students were intimidated by her grading. Funnily enough, a great teacher does not give you an A for every essay.

She is intelligent, funny and passionate about her subject. I took two classes from her and loved both of them. The discussion in class is always fascinating and makes you think AND (this is the cherry on the pie) she's gorgeous :)

Prof. O'Brien is a stellar teacher. She is well-prepared, well-spoken, and knows exactly how to hone in on what a student is trying to say. Her sense of humor lends a certain brevity even to the weightiest of subjects. I loved every class I took from her!

ENG 211 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She is definately a challenging teacher who will make you work however she is very clear and will work just as hard for you to understand even something as boring as BRITLIT even makes it interesting. If you are not an English major don't bother to take this class if you are it's well worth it to take it with her. Only two papers one is research.

No an easy ‘A’. Expect to do a lot of work in this class. She is a great teacher and great person.

O'Brien is very dry and has no personality. Lectures lack enthusiasm. Assignments are given just as busy work. I liked her classes at the 200 hundred level but be weary of the 300 level classes!
