She is just about the cutest woman in the world! she laughs at her own jokes and is always happy. All her papers are very easy and if you do bad, you can fix it. She tells you exactly what to fix and she even marks where it needs to be fixed. she is picky but it will help you in the long run. It is impossible to fail this class. I recommend it!

She is a great teacher, I love her. If you visit her during her office hours she will be a great help. She is a tough grader, but in the end you will become a better writer. I promise you that.

A fare grader, He is really nice... Takes the time out to help her students, she helped make my writing 10x better. I highly recommend he. I hated writing papers until she showed me how easy it is. PS english is not my first language.

Was kind to me, but I heard otherwise from other students. Had a problem appearing to SCHEDULED meetings/portfolio pick-ups on time. I had to reschedule a meeting once with her, and she abandoned us during finals week, with no notice that she was leaving. Hard grader. Need a lot of patience to take this class!

Very hard grader. I've talked to my friends and she's the hardest grader for CWP. She told me to get a tutor for my sentence structure and the tutor thought I was nuts coming to him because there was no problem.

She is legally blind, so she uses a reader and a magnifying device when grading assignments. Although they do come back slowly, her feedback is solid. With the ability to revise twice, the focus is on being a better writer, not a higher grade. And if the two revisions weren't enough there was extra credit! Highly recommended!

Great professor who is extremely helpful. Esay A if your not lazy. I mean you get 3 chances to revise EVERY essay and get 100 on all of them. class itself was boring and easy to fall asleep in but she knows her stuff!She may be blind but it doesnt take away from her teaching capabilities

awesome person. she is blind, so you get papers back slowly. a little monotonous, but she helps you become a better writer. lets you revise up to 3 times. you have to hand in everything to pass, so don't forget assignments!

I did all of the work in her class and got a 2.99 because she thought that i didn't try hard enough and I failed because you need a 3.0 to pass ENG 102. I got an E and i'm taking it this summer. Avoid her

She's a great teacher. Probably one of my favorites! She's blind so it takes a while to get your paper back but she wants you to pass so just work with her!

She's a really nice woman and yes she is blind. If you do the papers (which aren't difficult at all) you're fine.
