"Gives good feedback" "Tough Grader" "Lectures are long"

I have never been to good at English and I was hoping this teacher would change that. If anything, she made it worse. Unclear grading, ranting lectures, big assignments crossing over, very unorganized and in my opinion one of the worst teachers I have ever had. Her unacceptable error list are just reasons to bring your grade down. Nice but not good

"There for you" "Get ready to read" "Tough Grader"

She's a great professor but her grading when it comes to essays is harsh. I'm trying my hardest to get an A but man it's really tough. Be prepared to work hard and read.

"There for you" "Tough Grader" "Get ready to read"

Interesting class. No matter how hard I tried to get A's I always ended up with B's. I felt like it was difficult to write papers that she liked. She's very passionate about what she teaches and really cares about her students. Not an easy class, but as long as you do the work you'll probably end up with a B. Getting an A is tough though.

"Gives good feedback" "Amazing lectures" "Inspirational"

Michelle is a very excellent professor. The best English teacher I ever had at Sierra College. I never agreed with everything she said, but she never tried to make me feel like I always had to agree with her. In fact she encouraged me to voice out my thoughts. You can make any claim, as long as you back it up or did some research on your claim.

I loved Michelle. She loves want does. Her feed back on papers is great, I've never had a teacher that gave me good constructive criticism. But if you're looking for an easy A, then Michelle not your gal. You most definitely need to put an effort into your papers

Eng 1B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Michelle is a very good prof. who cares a lot about her students' outcome. She highly encourages critical thinking, and she's very helpful. I don't know about the 3 or 4 neg. comments out of 95 pos. comments. Looking at the 4 people who has a problem with the prof., sounds like they are just too lazy to work, or understand the materials.

very passionate teacher, but is not very professional. Her lectures are rants and hard to understand. She does not use a class schedule. Assigns hw over breaks. Expects more than the assignment given. Really love her as a person, but she wares me out. (I am a 4.0 student- hard to do). however her creative writing poetry class is great!

English 32 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Excellent professor. Demands a lot from students, and gives so much of her time to her students. Very easy to make appointments with her for office hours too. I usually miss a class here and there every semester, but not in her class. She's very good at engaging her students, and keeping her students interested.

Michelle is a feminist, and she makes sure that everyone knows that. She is extremely entertaining so the classes go by quickly. She actually teaches, and she does it well. I am very glad that I took her class because it made me think harder. She encourages you to think outside the box and do your best. She makes English very interesting.

Michael Johnson is truly devoted to her work on campus. Not only did she teach us the English A curriculum but because she is so involved on campus, she kept us up to date on campus events and even offered extra credit if we went to some of them. Finally, the portfolio she had us do in class helped my appeal to move on to English 1A.

Michelle Johnson does not grade fairly. If you have your own opinion and stand by it, you are in trouble. I wondered if she is on some kind of drug judging from her behavior in class. Choose another professor if you can.

Her poetry class can be extreamly hard for some and also really easy for other. My only advise if you like structure don't take this class if you love to have freedom in your writtening and thoughts take it.

Loved her English class. Just do the work it isn't even hard. There is just 4 major essays and she gives great feedback on your essays and you can make up points.I recommend her and I don't even like English or writing so this class was good for me. She is very funny and class is always fun.

MaJ is incredibly opinionated and makes everything have to do with the show Lost. If you don't do exactly what the guidelines say, you will not be graded easily.

Her class isn't super easy, but if you actually pay attention and put forth the expected effort there is no reason you wouldn't get an A. I don't know if she has an actual attendance policy, but in class is where she provides clarification on assignments and gives guidance on structuring quality papers. Make use of feedback she writes on your work.
