I am surprised she has received such a low rating! I really enjoyed her class and she is a very nice professor! She is very easy to talk to and is pretty lenient on grading in my opinion. She is hilarious as well! The info we learned in class wasn't that important, but definitely applied on tests. I would recommend her!

She prefers that you refer to her as Janet, first of all. She is exceptionally opinionated, which can either be a hit or a miss with many students. She has a tendency to influence her opinion into her class discussions. You are able to get easier and more comprehendible professors in CST 110. But, she isn't awful.

She's interesting to listen to in class,but the speech packets are A LOT of work. If your not interested in lots of busy work for speeches, I wouldn't suggest taking her.

I LOVED her! I am going to try and take her for more of my CST classes for sure. She was super nice, funny and helpful. I got an A in the class without ever even studying for the two tests also, it's common sense and she graded the speeches really easy. TAKE HER! LOVE HER!

Very dull class. Exams were based on useless definitions from the book. Disapproves of many speech topics. Overall would not recommend, but won't be hard to get through this class.

Weir was one of my favorite teachers. She makes things fairly interesting, and the few speeches and exams are not too tough if you prepare well. I would recommend her to anyone having to take CST 110!

Took speech online during the summer - she was a bit ambiguous and didn't give a lot of feedback on speeches so I didn't know what was wrong for the second one.

She was probably the best teacher I've had. She does get moody sometimes but what person doesn't. The class is a breeze and speeches are easy. Overal easy class

Can be very moody and impossible to find a speech topic. Likes to joke with students and makes class fun. Class is a breeze except for chossing a speech topic that she approves.

Janet is a good communication professor. She has tons of experience in the field and really knows what she is talking about. She is particular about what she wants in the speeches you are assigned, but she is clear about what she wants. The tests are multiple choice & true/false and not hard at all. If you want to learn something then take Janet.

This was a very easy class. The only thing that was difficult was getting a speech topic that she would allow you to do. But other than that, she grades easy, all quizzes are on D2L and very easy, and the tests are Multiple Choice/True False. NO FINAL EXAM!!! Good class and a teacher who makes class fun.

I have mixed feelings about her. She's nice but kinda moody. Definitely do not EVER let your cell phone ring in her class - she will flip out and threaten to take points away from everyone. She'll help if you need it but can give you a hard time about speech topics. Respectfully stand your ground. She can be really relaxed and funny at times.

Weir seems intimidating at first, but shes's not. Get on her good side, listen to her criticism and do the quizzes on the CD-rom given in the first class. Also, she is a hardass about attendance

I can see where some people think she's mean because she's very particular but if people were mature they would see that she's just trying to help us make quality, key word quality speeches. And in regards to going in and asking for help she's very helpful.Take her if you actually want to learn something from the class you're paying money for

She was a total ****. She was rude and hostile. Very opinionated person that wants things her own way. Unclear about expectations.

Did not like the teacher. She was not very helpful. Also made it nearly impossible to choose speech topics. Very boring teacher and is not very open to new things. Likes things done her way or not at all.
