Do not waste your time or money. Take someone who actually knows how to teach instead of someone who just uses her soapbox for her own self-centered rants.

Why is she an instructor at Butte College again? I really believe she needs professional help and stop using her classroom therapy sections.

CMST-1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A+

I would not recommend this instructor,because, she speaks to much about her personal life. She is very loud and I had to take an aspirin after every class.I took her class during winter break and the best part of the class was when it ended and I got my A.

CMST 2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

This class is incredibly easy if you can handle doing the meaningless homework Jodi assigns and you can muddle through a few speeches. However, you aren't going to learn anything. Jodi uses about half of the class time to rant about the things that upset her. I got an A in her class, but I still say that you should avoid her if possible.

Extremely unprofessional teacher. Degrades students that need help and spends most class times ranting against the government and military. Easy A because she cant properly teach.

Very, VERY pretentious. Uses her class to make people listen to her opinions and how much she hates the government and spread propaganda. Incompetent as an instructor. Rude, stubborn, not professional. Easy course though, you literally get a grade for listening to her rant. She is a professional complainer.

Public Speaking Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Jodi is the most amazing professor EVER! I cannot stress enough how awesome she is. Yes, she does have extremely liberal views, but she also makes it heard that she does not judge or grade anyone on their own personal views. She gets to the essence of what public speaking is and really makes it an enjoyable learning experience. Must Have!

Jodi is a great person in my opinion but a horrendously sloppy teacher. She does a great job at making a comfortable environment, however there is no order whatsoever. If you want to get something done it will not happen in this class. If all you want is a grade for attending and putting forth little effort then she is the teacher for you.

Jodi is awesome! She is very liberal and is a bit one-sided. There were a few heated debates in our class - as there should be in a college atmosphere. Don't buy the textbook - you don't use it. Jodi made class fun and interesting, she's like a cool aunt to everyone. take this class if you can!!

CMST4 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She spends at least 30 mins per class talking about her political agenda, screwed up life, and other kinds of nonsense. The class is decently easy, but you have to constantly be on top of your syllabus because she doesn't always warn you about due dates. Not a terrible class, but overall waste of time.

COmComm Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She is terrible. Calls her students "minions" which in my opinion, is derogatory and rude. She is also crass and talks a lot of NOTHING but herself and what we learn is mediocre. TAKE SOMEONE else!! Please! You'll thank me later I promise!

Jodi is a really good instructor. She made the class fun and interesting with the games we played. She totally helped me to get out of myself and learn to speak up for a cause!! he speech format is something I am already using in other aspects of my life. AWESOME Teacher!!She cares about her students!!

Jodi's a great teacher. The class consists of 4 presentations, lecture, note taking, a few other easy assignments. Class activities make the class fun like musical chairs. I generally don't like speaking in public, but was comfortable in her class and found that it helped me. She is also really funny and tells stories to relate during lecture.
