Tough teacher she will make sure you are actually learning respiratory instead of just using memorization. She loves respiratory and cares about her students, that actually try. If you need help go to her and show her you care about passing (she is much nicer outside of class)

She is a tough instructor and she is not out to win a popularity contest. She is there to teach. She works hard to make sure the students know the material. She is well respected in the medical community and that is why her students get jobs. Work hard, study hard, and toughen up. She is NOT MEAN, she is training you for the real world!

She is an amazing teacher, but yes this class was very difficult. She knows her stuff and just wanted all of us to know it too. Multiple choice on an exam was a rarity, so if you don't do well with fill ins, or short answer she may not be the teacher for you. But over all, excellent teacher who really just knows EXACTLY what she is talking about.:)

This lady knows what she is doing and she cares about her students. If you want to become an outstanding Respiratory Therapist you will listen to her and seek help when needed. Easy? No. The program is a top rated program because of her. I cannot thank her enough for what she has taught me.

She is the best instructor you could have if you really want to LEARN respiratory. I feel like these negative comments are a reflection of a lack of interest. She may be hard but in this type of field where you are working with the sickest people in the hospital don't you want to be competent ? She will give you everything you need to succeed.

I'm approaching graduation in May and I could not have asked for a more wonderful teacher.She is hard, but it's for a reason she loves what she does and wants everyone to successfully pass the board exams . there is a reason we have a 100% pass rate from hfcc& it's thanks to her and ms.waters.

When you wait 2 years to get into a program.You get in and are excited to learn. Then BAM!! Your instructor is everything that you read on this site and then some.It is not a good situation.Do yourself a favor and don't think people are just angry at her.It is the truth. Good luck to you.

My advice to anyone wanting to study respiratory.Go to a different school.MCCC, Oakland County ect. This person has no business teaching anything. She is mean,period. Makes people cry.Have anxiety,stress. She does this on purpose. She is either on an ego trip or is trying to toughen you up.28-30 people start and only half finish.

Not a likeable person.She teaches by intimidation. Everyone is scared of her.Including Lab helpers and the other instructor in the respiratory program.There is no doubt that many people have quit the program because of her behavior.When people pay for an education,they shouldn't have to be mistreated by their instructor.

I concur with a poster below. This woman has some serious behavioral issues. Fat, Lazy,and disrespectful. I really don't know how this woman has lasted this long at this college. Fortunately, a tape recorder with her words don't lie.

If you are low income or a minor-choose a different school for Respiratory! If you are an attractive woman or man- choose a different subject at HFCC!!!

Along with the comment below. I am in the program now , and she is a amazing teacher . she gives 125% at what she is teaching and she loves it. She is always there when you need help and she has taught me alot. I gaurentee that these negative comments are a reflection of you giving up and wanting to blame her . thats not fair because she is amazing

I am still in her class. I am not doing as well as I usually do, but it my fault not hers. SHe is extremely knowledgable and willing to help you if you seek her help. TO those that have posted negative, you should look at your own committment to the program first.

The woman has some serious issues. Fat and lazy, doesn't want to teach. This is a self-taught class and could really be online, that's how little help she is. To all you grads that are singing her praise, don't thank her. YOU did it, in spite of her...kudos!

She is a very hard teacher almost military like but she knows her stuff. This program is hard core so unless you are really dedicated 100% don't waste your time or take the spot of someone who really wants it. I don't care how smart you are this program takes 100% of your spare time. You can do it & she is there to help if you want it. Dedication.

She's the worst teacher that I have ever had she's very rude makes you feel like you stupid when you ask a question. I really wish they find a new instructor for the program because she suck. I changed my major after dealing with her. She doesnt want to help you and she lecture way to face. I really wish she retire beacuse her teaching are bad

not a nice teacher, very rude treats people like they are benath her.May know her material, but also feels you should know after one class. If she treated people better the college would have a better graduting class, talks way to fast.

She is the best at what she does. When you graduate, you really know what you are doing. When she retires, she will be hard to replace. You may hate her during your courses but when you are done, you will thank her and appreciate that she was so hard. You will never have a hard time finding a job when you graduate, having had her.
