seced3637 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor favors male students and females must work much harder for same grade. She is knowledgeable in the material. But, she belittles students in front of the class and makes them question their life-long dream. Preparing for presentations made one physically ill. She may be a teacher, but she has a lot to learn, herself.

Seminar-Sec Ed Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Although she knows her "stuff" she can be quite rude and condescending toward her students. She is very unapproachable both in and out of the classroom.

Math Ed majors Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Although she can come off as intimidating, she is the nicest person you will ever meet. She is brutally honest though, but very supportive. You will learn more from her Seminar and Methods classes than all of the other education courses combined

Hofstetter is very strict and stern, yet she is a very experienced and dedicated Math Educator so there is a lot to learn from her if you take the time to do so....can't get away from her anyway she is the only one who does Sec Ed in Math at New Paltz
