Dr. Semonella is an EXCELLENT educator. She was great about helping me to get the most out of myself as well as the subject. She's certainly not your "subject evaluator".. She's a life motivator! If you want to "skate" don't bother. However, if you're looking to EXCEL, she's the teacher for YOU as she was for me! (Thx Doc!)

Dr. Semonella is talented and educated. Though she is tough, she is fair. Those who have had her for Theatre, Speech, English, and Poetry can speak to her diverse knowledge and attitudes in class. Many who don't like her were just completing GE, not majoring in her subjects. To this day, she has changed my life and is my favorite educator.

Extremely rude to students, Attendance policy sucks, class starts when she wants it to, not when its supposed to start. Turn in policy is stupid and needs to be adjusted. Horrible teacher.

Humiliates you if you are even 1 min. late. Yells at you if you need to go to the bathroom. I'm afraid to talk to her outside of class. She gets p/oed all the time. Very angry lady. Lots of reading. Difficult grading. I'm an A student and I'm afraid for my grade. All speeches must be exactly within the time limits or an F for you!

Joan is an AWESOME teacher! She's VERY charming, funny, casual, and a total character. BEWARE - Tons of reading, very few writing assignments, but ASK questions and be involved in the lectures or you will be lost. English Majors - You're fools if you pass up a chance to take Joan. She's one in a billion!

Hard Teacher!!! LOTS OF READING! I have to say that she is very passionate about the subject. BUT the WORST is that she intimidates the student, I wittenessed her publicly humiliating 2 students during the class. After seeing that I dropped the class.

She's a very fun teacher and makes the boring reading fun. if you aren't afraid to talk during discussion and read all of the material, you'll do fine. She does give a lot of reading, but she'll teach you sooo much! Just be willing to put in a lot of time for her class.

Dr Semonella remaines of my most inspiring profressors. She is HARD, but knows her stuff. Her passion is contagious, and you can see her eyes twinkle when she teaches. I adore her.

it's hard work, but she is very enagaging and entertaining. she encourages questions and office visits. shy students apply only if you want to be brought out of your shell, and those who aren't play along with her and enjoy the ride!

A hard class. A lot of reading, however, the teacher makes it a little bit less boring. She is hard on grading and then gives you the weirdest grades on the essays, like: D+/B+, what grade is that? It's A LOT of reading and you write like 3 five page essays. Plus the mid-term and final, which are both essays.

Strives for intimidating manner, often crowing over student's mistakes in class. Teaching style heavily geared towards forensics, which almost none of her students will be entering. Unavailable after class. Tries to "be there" for the students. One of the worst classes of my life. Wound up dropping.
