ENGLWRIT 112 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I cannot stand writing. However, Stella tries her best to keep her students interested. She claims that class is mandatory and more than 2 or 3 missed classes may result in a lower grade, but if you go more often than not, participate, and be respectful, she'll most likely let it slide. Longest papers tend to be 3 pages in length. Not bad at all.

ENG 254 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Stella is a fun and easy going professor. She's super into free form and experimental poetry, so basically she'll love anything you write for class as long as you try. A few responses to texts, and she'll give you a good grade if you do them. Class time devoted to writing and analyzing what makes writing interesting. Really engaging class overall.

She RIPPED a book. How do you do that in front of people who love literature? I dropped the class.

Stella is pretty down to earth and cool. She's very light hearted and i definitely wouldn't call the class boring. It's not an automatic A, but if you participate and make noticeable changes in your drafts, you're golden. Overall she was an ideal person to teach this class in my opinion. I actually found that i enjoyed it.

Her name is Stella now! She teaches freshmen english writing. Very nice and sweet. She loves to see you really change up your papers when you do a second draft. As long as you follow the requirements for your papers, she grades really fairly and is a good teacher.

Stella's pretty cool. I liked the class. Sometimes it's hard because she'll tell you to fix a few specific things on a paper, you'll fix it, and then the next revision it's completely wrong and not what she wanted. A little advice, when you revise drafts basically completely change your paper. That's what she wants.
