Kateri is a very nice person outside of class, but she is not a good professor. She is an extremely harsh grader and her feedback does not make any sense. Her way of teaching is to make you figure it out for yourself which is not easy and a lot of times I left confused from her class. Avoid her if possible.

Kateri is a very sweet lady. I looked forward to coming to this class, and it was definitely doable for the horror stories you hear of 107. She kind of makes you learn on your own though/figure things out which sometimes wasn't helpful when it came to tests. Overall very good class!

She is a very difficult grader and her feedback is not helpful. Frequently belittles students in class. Does not always answer emails. Difficult to meet with and when you can meet with her, not very helpful. Avoid her if possible. Takes over a month to grade work - many students frustrated/upset.

Kateri may be the worst professor I've ever had. Acts like a nice person to your face, but when it comes to teaching, she does not live up to the standards she sets. Rarely gave feedback in a timely manner, cannot handle students who do have questions/suggestions, and can grade really harshly. Theres a lot to say, so just avoid if at all possible.

I have never been so frustrated with a professor in my entire college career. She is extremely nice as a person, but is very unprofessional with her teaching. She does not give timely feedback, does not explain assignments clearly, and grades extremely hard. She is an example of what a teacher should NOT be like. Avoid her if all possible!

Dr. Thunder is a nice person outside of class. However, she is a very difficult grader. She does not give timely or useful feedback. She gives feedback less than a week before teaching a lesson and it is not understandable feedback. She rarely, if ever, answers emails and is pretty much never available outside of class.

Kateri is a relatively nice person, but lacks the clarity and teaching skills to be a great professor. She does her best to help out as needed, but often fails to explain major assignments in a clear manor. This left my classmates and I confused and unsure of basic expectations required to excel in the class.

I had a wonderful experience in Kateri's class! She is really passionate about what she is teaching and wants us to be the same way! She is always available to help. As far as lessons.. I got mine back in time, but you have to consider the amount of time that she puts into EACH lesson she gets. She gives a LOT of GOOD feedback! Worth the wait!

I absolutely love Kateri! She wants everyone to really understand every math concept before you learn ways to teach it. She has a lot of great examples and she is really easy to talk to. I was so prepared to teach my math lesson and it went really smoothly because of her!

A nice person, but does not give feedback on lesson plans until LATE the night before you have to teach it. Her weekly homework assignments are tedious and relate to the class. However, connections are not always noted in class and opinion isn't always valued.

Not a hard class. She's a great person, but sometimes gives feedback late (changes your lesson plan the night before you're supposed to teach). Her class is not laid out clearly and sometimes doesn't seem to connect. But the videos she shows are helpful.
