One of my favorite professors ever. Yes, she is strict. Yes, she will hold you accountable for required readings. Yes, she does favor leaders over those that sit quietly. If you are on her good side, there is nothing that she wouldn't do to help you along your way. Dr. Bridges teaches Shakespeare like a Shakespearean Scholar. Take her classes.

Dr. Bridges is AMAZING!!! She is extremely knowledgeable, has a great sense of humor, and is very caring towards her students. Her best quote that defines her philosophy, "I'm in the mind stretching business!" I didn't just major in English, M.A. I "majored" in Dr. Bridges, and I assure you that I had a quality education. Can't praise her enough.

Took her for Shakespeare class. Dr. Bridges is absolutely one of the most amazing people I have ever met. I truly feel blessed to have received instruction from her and will always try to get her as my professor as often as possible. TAKE HER IF YOU CAN!!!!!

Dr. Bridges is AMAZING. She expects you to come to class, read the material, and perform the assignments to the utmost of your ability. She does NOT tolerate slackers; lazy people need not apply. She's knowledgeable, kind, and very funny! Take her!

Dr. Bridges is a rare breed of educator. She is extremely knowledgable in her subjects and cares deeply for students. She is probably one of the most challenging profs I've ever had. She also encouraged me to go to grad school and recommended me for my first teaching position. If you are dedicated to your education she will be dedicated to you.

Dr. Bridges is NOT unapproachable. She does expect people to attend class, follow assignment directions, and come to class prepared. If you can't do the things she or any other professor expects, why are you in college. Dr. B is kind and dedicated to her students.

She is knowledgable, but very unapproachable. She does have her favorites and if you are not on the list, it would be best to stay out of her courses. Do not dare take an instructor she doesn't like, it is academic suicide. She is either for you or against you. You do not want her against you. She is in control of everything in that department

Had Dr. Bridges for Plays of Shakespeare over Summer. It was intense, but she knew her stuff and made sure that you knew yours. She was fair, but strict.

Comes off as a sweet grandmotherly type, but she's really a pit bull. She knows her stuff, and she will nail you if you don't know yours. It's best to sit quietly and not ask questions.

Dr. Bridges is the epitome of what an excellent college professor should be. Knowledgable, challenging and fair. She is definitely NOT for wimps or slackers. Take her if you want to learn something extraordinary.

Dr. Bridges is a wonderful teacher with a wealth of knowledge to pass on. The people who have rated her poorly may have been the type of student that doesn't put their all into class. She has no tolerance for doing things halfway. It is all or nothing. If you work hard and participate in class you should be fine. She is amazing. Glad to know her.

Beware! As other's have stated, she chooses her fav's. Ironically, she will change this as she pleases. Working with her is like walking on eggshells.

I hated her both personally and as a professor. Save your time and money unless you really need the class.

I just want to comment on the person who said she should retire. I am glad she hasn't retired. I have found her an instrumental professor at TWU and I couln't imagine my education being the same w/o her. She truely wants the best for all students, it is clear. She wants people to be successful.

She knows the material very well. She expects her students to do their part, and she doesn't tolerate lazy and uninterested students. She takes her job as "the educator" very seriously, and expects her students to be just as serious about their education. If you are a serious and thoughtful student then all will be well.

She teaches graduate class as if teaching a high school class. It was a waste of time to go to her class. Worst of all, she does not tolerate disagreement and still teaches as if theory had never progressed beyond the 1950s. If you are not "her student," she can make your life very miserable. Stay on her side if you take her class.

Beware, she loves you or she hates you, and there's not much you can do to change her mind once it's made up! The class really wasn't that difficult, though
