Meh. She's average. I don't understand these glowing remarks. I was very interested in anthropology before this class, but now not so sure. If she's one of the good profs, how bad must the others be?

Overall, I would rate Bessette as an effective teacher. I felt that the tests were a bit easy, but I'm never going to complain about that!

I LOVE Shannon. Though I am not terribly interested in anthropology, I took two classes just so that Shannon would be my teacher!! Highly recommend taking a class with her.

I did honestly find the subject matter interesting, but I did not like Shannon all that much. She was nice and helpful,but she tended to share too much(her sex studies,foster cats,opinions on EVERYTHING). The Readings were actually necessary to write the papers and do the tests, but don't bother answering the worksheets, she never collected them.

I loved this prof! She was a tremendous help not only in the classroom but was a great advisor helping me with my academic career after JCC. I learned so much in her class. I recommend her to anyone.

I had her for Intro to Cultural Anthropology. She is very personable and understands that people have lives outside of college. I have a class with her next semester and am looking forward to it =)

She was the better half of the professors that taught 'American Culture Studies'. She has the actual knowledge that I expected out of the class.

She was one of my favorite teachers. She was straight forward, intelligent, easy to talk to and made everything interesting. Her story was truly inspiring! She could do much better than a community college. Make sure you know and understand the material and the tests will be fine! Read the assigned readings!

I've taken several courses from Shannon including intro to cultural anthropology, comparative religion, Native American history, and sex, sexuality and gender. I loved all of her courses. Shannon is an amazing, intelligent, funny, and passionate teacher, and is one of the best teachers I have ever had. I absolutely recommend her.

Wow, she's using too much bleach in her hair or something. She used to be awesome, now she's forgetful and mean. I thought I'd enjoy this class.

i have taken every class shannon offers. she is an amazing spirit. she gives a decent challenge and always provides help if it is needed. her lecture is peppered with interesting things and she is very funny. i love her tests as well - they're a much better way to find out if you actually know something.
