She is a great instructor that is very passionate about children especially children with special needs. She is very knowledgable and totally willing to help, if you ask.

Difficult class, but she is a very nice lady. She tends to finish her lectures right before the tests so you don't really get to study the info and if you don't understand, that sucks for you. I enjoyed her class for the most part it was just really difficult when she would lecture the day of test for me. She missed 4 days including day of final!

This professor and class was my reason for changing my major to Child Development! She is very enthusiastic and passionate about teaching children and her students. The tests are HARD but she gives you tips on what will be on the test. Plus she throws out your lowest score and grades on a curve.

Lovely woman! The tests are very hard but she gives you tips on what will be on the test, including a study session before test and cram night before final. You must be at class to get tips.

Took for 107 & 103. Despite complaints about lateness (which is occasional), this is an excellent teacher. She is genuine, and is full of knowledge and experience. She is faced paced - keeping students on their toes. But, what she can offer in the class room is well worth all the hardships. I definitely recommend her for future CLDDV students.

She was kind of confusing, classes were somewhat dysfunctional because everyone always had to give personal experiences or had questions that were way off topic, she rarely stuck to syllabus, always behind on her slide show. A TON of reading is a must.

This class is very difficult if you don't read the book. Quiz every week, tests every 3 chapters. Assignments were very easy. I honestly learned A LOT from this class. as long as you attend and pay attention you will get through. (When she uses her experiences that relate to the texts are great)

Mixed feelings. Knows her profession and teaches well. Gives study sessions for tests, but shows up late for these. Nice but complains alot about her personal life. Weekly quizzes and a test for every 2-3 chapters. Essays: childbirth and article summary. Childbirth was easy to do but written article summary instructions were very vague and oral.

This class is super hard! She acts like this is your only class so when you go home you must read the text book and the power point on her website. She does not give you enough time to write down the slides in class. She is always behind schedule and will teach the first hour of class before a test. Terrible teacher!

She is super hard and for a development teacher , she doesn't follow her own rule that some students haven't learn like she has. We all learn differently. She always off task and behind schedule. Very rushed class.

Shes alright. dont take this class with her if you cannot take notes and listen at the same time or if you cant handle fast paced environments. she often falls behind but sometimes she will fit like 10 slides into 3 minutes. her class isnt bad if you READ. YOU MUST READ THE TEXT. her final wasnt great though.

Great instructor! A little scattered at times, but easy to get along with and understand. Her class is full of assignments that allow you to have fun and learn at the same time. She is a wealth of information.

Debbie has a teaching style that I was not acustomed to but I found that as long as I did the reading and assignments, along with regulary attending class, that passing the class was a breeze. Advice: make sure to go to class and stay for the whole period. Also keep cell phones put away, she has zero tolerance and will ask you to leave. Good luck

This teacher is very hard. The tests are very tricky and get progressively harder. She grades essays based upon spelling/punctuation, not about quality. Her final consisted of her trying to lecture about 3 chapters in 2 hours, and then giving us the test. She is always behind in her lectures.

She was very forgetful and talked a lot about her project Kenya. She is very passionate in her job and an excellent teacher. I learned so much from her.

I've taken her 103 and 107 classes. In 103 she was very clear on what she wanted and went over it NUMEROUS times. In 107 she was much less clear. she'll give great help of you ask, her quizzes are tricky read the questions CAREFULLY. she's very open about her beliefs, and relates everything to a personal story which helped me understand the subject

I would not take this teacher again. She doesn't stick to the syllabus. I found her sneaky and her tests get progressively harder. Beware of the final.. it was ridiculous! She loves to talk about how wrong everyone else is in rearing children.

This class isn't that hard, but she makes it kind of tricky. She grades really unfair on essays. And she is SUPER annoying. She talks in overly exagerated baby talk more than half the time. She always has to be right too.

She is a unique. You will get a good grounding in child development. I think she has a problem staying on subject in her lectures. I really want to know what is happening in usa classes more than Kenya. I found myself falling asleep in her night classes. Other than that, good luck
