Dr. Cristiano is one of my favorite teachers I've ever had! I laugh at her just as much as I do her jokes, but in a good way. Make sure you follow her 6-step guide (not only does it help your grade drastically but it does work), public speaking is one of those subjects that's only as hard as you make it. So if you put in the work, have no fear.

she is a very nice teacher. I took her public speech class; it was really easy and so much fun. she is not hard on attendance at all, but just be there for your speech. the textbook was really helpful. i am still using it to help me with other classes.

Dr. Cristiano is a great teacher. I am now pretty confident I can give a public speech. Not a hard class, just put your time in to make a good speech and you will get an A.

We had an abusive student in class today who verbally attacked dr. Cristiano saying that she was incompetent. This happened today on the second day of a five week summer school class. I suspect that he knew he was over his head and would make a fool out of himself on the speeches, do he grand standed.

She knows nothing of public speaking. Her book is a joke, which you must buy for the class. Shes grandfathered in I assume. I dont see how anybody would hire her based on her knowledge or teaching skills. Do her worksheets and get an easy A but dont expect to learn anything useful.

Best professor I have ever had. The course as she put it is the easiest hardest class you will ever take. Easy because you know exactly what you need to do, and hard because you have to do it. This professor really cares about your success and will help you to succeed. I was terrified of public speaking and now I feel confident.

She is quirky and weird, but if u follow the directions exactly when giving speeches, it is an easy A. Very flexible with attendance. Goes on tangents and has a strange sense of humor.

She is funny and laughs out of the blue. She has a lot of speeches that u required to write, and grades the speeches pretty strict. Just follow the format and u can easily get an A. Lectures were sometimes boring.

Laughs at her own jokes...which are pretty bad... Does a little turtle head bob thing while talking. I'm sure everyone in the class passed beautifully, but not a single one of us is ANY better at public speaking. Her "book" that she stresses we MUST read is a waste of time. Never read a page and faked it though with ease. EASY "A", but no learning.

What a waste of time... Happy, all smiles, loud, but follow the rules of the speeches EXACTLY how she wants it or she'll f#<k your grade! Otherwise, she's alright. Would only take anything else from her if I needed EASY credits with little effort involved. Didn't learn a darn thing.

Loved her, just don't take her class at 7am if you aren't a morning person. She's a little loud, but really really good. Follow the 6step guide and you're golden.

Not a completely incompetent teacher, but not a very good one either. As a public speaker do not hold attention and laughs at her own jokes. For the class uses the ?book? written by her. It feels as it was written a day before it went to a publisher. To be a better public speaker, I would skip this teacher and sign up for the class of Tom Simpson.

Outstanding teacher! She wants nothing but to make you feel more comfortable speaking to a formal audience. Loves to laugh, especially at herself. I recommend her to everyone who needs to take COM 225, or any other class she might teach.

I loved this professor! She was very nice, funny and helpful! There are 6 speeches, which is a lot, but they're easy if you follow her criteria. She wrote the textbook and it helps you so much when you?re writing speeches. I am a better public speaker in speeches because of her! I would definitely recommend her and this class! It?s a helpful tool t

Class is relatively easy if you at least make an effort. Be sure to include all of the little details she wants you to include in your speeches and stay within the time limit. If you can do that, you are nearly guaranteed a good grade. The textbook is basically just a huge collection of all the handouts you will need for class, kind of a waste.
