She is a pretty good teacher. At times she comes off very irritated, but she is nice most of the time. Papers are hand written and are graded on grammar, not content. You read two books, but she keeps score of highest book exam. She is helpful if you ask questions. I will take her again if I get the chance.

Ms. Rimpsey was a fantastic teacher. Took her for speech and had four assignments (which are open book), four speeches (narrative, demonstrative, informative, and group presentation), and plenty of bonus work to cushion your grade. I read off of most of my speeches and made an A.

Hate her. Her tests on the books we had to read were really hard. I stopped doing the journals. I have no clue how I got a b. I did go to every single class. She doesn't care what is in your papers, it's the grammar. Have great grammar and can easily pass the class. It's just not a fun class at all.

Practically the class sessions are structured as such. She assigns stories that go along with each topic like Description or Exemplification. She assigns essays every week with 1 week time limit to complete. She tough when she grades the essays but she will let you revise 2 essays of your choice.

She is a wonderful teacher if you are not a lazy student. There is an essay due every week, but they are easy to do. She is obsessed with correct grammar, so if your essay has correct grammar, you will make an A. She is very sweet! The only people that hate her in my class are the people who want to skip class and do nothing all day.

The class is easy if you pay attention to what she wants you to include in the speeches. She can have an attitude sometimes, but if you get on her good side she'll be nice to you and let your class go early some days.

First of all, the person below me probably was just messing around with their friends. All you have to do is read the stories, they're actually interesting. You show her that you care about her class and she'll take care of you. You're paying hundreds of dollars for the class, you might as well go. We in a recession so stop wasting your money.

I was going through some health problems while in her class and she worked with me some but i could def. tell she did NOT care for me. her class is extremely hard and she would be better off teaching high school. she does not have the mentality of a college prof.

Ms. Rimpsey is the greatest!Her classes are extremely easy and She is very helpful. Of course she talks about her own race, she's BLACK AND PROUD!!! How many African American FEMALE professors have you seen at JSU??? Obviously she's doing something right.

SHE DOESN'T GIVE ANY HOMEWORK BESIDES WORK IN THE HANDBOOK FOR ERRORS YOU MADE ON ESSAYS. WE HAD TO DO 7 ESSAYS THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE SEMESTER. SHE DOES PICK FAVORITES AND TO ME SHE DOESN'T CARE ABOUT HER CLASS AT ALL. SHE SITS IN CLASS TO WASTE TIME. SHE ALSO ASSIGN US STUPID JOURNAL ENTRIES! I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND HER TO ANYONE.

She would be better suited as a high school teacher than a college professor. She sterotypes all her students, and picks favorites.

If you can stand hearing a teacher (NOT a professor) go on for an hour about her views on race and religion with no actual subject matter involved, I suggest this class to you. She definitely has her favorites. Easy class, but you may be tempted to scream in the middle of a lecture. It's like high school all over again.

Possibly the worst instructor at JSU. She is always at least 10 minutes late to class, never seems to know what she's talking about, has no sense of professionalism, and everything that comes out of her mouth is something to do with race.

Sometimes it seems as though she doesn't know what she is doing. Lets the class get involved and wants the class to be fun. Easy grade without trying if you are respectful and go to class. Shares opinions of her own on race and religion, which aggravated me a few times.
