Soc 101, 196 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I had three classes with her all at the same time, theory, freakishness and heterosexuality. They were great classes, although theory was boring but she is a great professor. Middleburry will be lucky to have her!

She conducts an interesting class but not without her faults. She oversimplifies theorists and misapplies them to her modern, liberal ideas. Plenty of work but she grades incredibly easy.

Very interesting class, opens your eyes to alot of things. Very fair exam only if you make it to every class and take notes...she loves to give statistics and "fun" facts.

very very boring, full of statistics, very bitter, interupts students when they have comments, shes always right and a hard core left wing democrat. i agree with most of the things she says but she just isn't cool at all, actually she sucks

She often makes comments in class like "You all got low SAT scores and that's why you go to UVM". Expect to be insulted on a regular basis. The class itself is boring, she just lists off statistics and facts the entire class period. If you want good, solid teaching, this professor isn't for you.

pleasure Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: N/A Grade Received: N/A

I took Sociology of Pleasure & Sociology of Freakishness with her. She's a great teacher - fun interactions while in class and plenty of pictures and articles to back up her assertions. Be prepared to analyze your own reactions to cultural oddities.
