ENG 281 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A
"Tests are tough" "There for you" "Would take again"

When she gives out assignments (which are easy), you can take your time turning it in for full credit. Boring subject, but still very fun and very helpful if you ask. The tests are wicked though. But say you failed, she'll give it back to you after grading, and give you the opportunity to take it home, correct the answers, and then get a C on it

Very passionate about the subject. Accepts all late assignments & still gives you full credit. She is unorganized but her class is extremely easy. Know all of your vocab for the tests because the tests are completely written, not multiple choice at all!

Stookey is engaging and a really nice person. She's really easy to understand and assigns fun and unique assignments. She doesn't do essays, which is nice! She's also very patient. And funny. Overall, awesome woman.

ENG101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is very very nice, can be a bit spacey but I did learn. this class was incredibly easy. She encourages a certain deadline for papers (she only assigned 3 or 4 the whole semester) but you arent Required to turn them in by that point. This was very nice but i encourage you to meet the deadlines. There also wasn't a fianl for this class. :)

Easy A. She's patient and passionate about what she does. She can be a little bit hard to follow at times, but it's endearing and she knows what she's talking about so it doesn't really matter.

Very easy A. She can trail off at times and can be hard to understand, but if you attend class and turn in the stuff she asks for you won't have any problems. The tests can be kinda random, but they aren't hard. Again, easy, easy A.

Loved this class! very easy A as long as you take the final and midterm and do the projects, as well as there are no due dates on projects, kinda your own pace thing. She is a bit zany and unstructured but an excellent teacher and you can tell she knows and loves what she is teaching!I would take her for every class if I could:D HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

She's crazy in a rambling, muttering, all over the place kind of way. But she's very nice, and the class is SO easy! You don't need to read the textbook or take notes, just do the easy projects she gives out and study the midterm review she gives you. Boring class, but you'll definitely pass.

Kind of crazy, and class was slow, but extremely easy. She's very willing to help out and she will accept hw at any time. The class itself was pretty interesting if you could manage to pay attention.

I like her because her assignments are meaningful and the reading is interesting and helpful to the course. She's a bit nervous and unstructured, but that's okay.

Great teacher! Would love to take all of my classes wit her. She isn't very structured, but this is a good thing. As long as you get all of the assignments in, you are in good hands. Always has interesting insight into the topic. Highly recommend!

One of the best professors I have had. Simply a pleasure to listen to. She knows her subjects in and out. She doesn't come off like your average college professor at first. But, in the end, this is a great thing. No real due dates. Manage your time and you'll be fine. You can write on anything related to the class and she'll love it. The Best!

This is a super easy class. Essays are totally relaxed and simple. Tests are extensive but easy to study for because she tells you everything that will be on them. Her lectures are pretty boring, partially because she doesn't make any sense. But she's real nice, a bit crazy, but always super willing to help!

Her class is really easy. Lectures are somewhat boring but you learn a lot from the book which is really interesting to read. She does reviews of all the exams and the papers you need to write are very simple. She also gives tons of opportunities for extra credit. She does take roll but you can miss several classes and be fine, just do the readings
