Sweetest professor I have had to date. Class was easy considering I got an A and did not even purchase the textbook.

"Respected by students" "Gives good feedback" "Would take again"

She is an excellent teacher, really and truly. She engages the class and provokes creativity among her students. I haven't needed my textbook, however- I don't know if this was because she is obligated to assign one- but I would have preferred to keep the money in my pocket. Other than that- wonderful. And yes, I know, it's a "plastic sticker".

Professor Preston is a wonderful lady. She makes the class fun and interesting. I took her for literature and the tests she always gave out were about the stories that we had to read for homework. She's really fun and stares at you when you yawn :) Loveable lady and fun class. I would recommend her. I loved the grovel jar. I will miss her.

Prof. Preston is, by far, the best professor I have had at Suffolk. She can be a little eccentric but she has a kind heart, and gives out fun assignments. She doesn't like it when students yawn in her class, nor does she like cellphones! I got an A in her class! If you want to take a Creative Writing class, make sure you take her, she's great!

Very odd professor, her tests are on the most random aspects of the stories, never the main idea, theme or characters.

I loved her! She's very nice and funny, but sometimes a little weird. Just make sure you don't yawn in her class or she'll stop talking and just stare at you. LOL.

One of the high points of my college career.When the class was nearing the time to end every week, I would wish it wouldn't and I can say that about very few teachers I have had.

She is a very funny & sweet teacher. She does give a lot of critique. on your writing but trust me you'll be happy she did. My writing is a lot better (almost no plastic stickers!)because of it. You do a free write everyday & about 6 projects. Honestly the best class I took all semester. I was learning with a lot of great people Honors Fall 2011:)
