Please!Do not take this class unless you enjoy long monotone lectures. She is rude and judgmental. I could hardly stand sitting there getting awkward remarks and glares from her. She disregards anyone's input if it's "not in the book". We have had many issues as a class for her singling out our native American student to speak. Do yourself a favor

Dr. Blend is a great teacher. She just doesn't put up with blatant stupidity or laziness. We are college students; if you can manage to take notes during lectures, read books and write papers, you will get an A. I took 2 of her classes and had an A in both, going solely off of lecture and supplemental reading. I never even used the text book.

This Teacher is horrible, she does not care about the students interests, only her own. She will argue and make sassy remarks if you ask her a question. Her lectures are extremely boring, her voice is so low and its hard to keep up with notes.

She is such a rude teacher i wouldnt recommend her to anyone. I had the most miserable semester with this woman. Anytime we had questions she would respond in a rude remark. Not to mention she always made u feel stupid in front of othr classmates. Believe me u will regret taking her class as so many students dropped her class.

Very rude and monotone. I have never had a problem with instructor other than her. You can't even ask a simple question without getting a rude remark back.

At first I liked her because of her no-nonsense attitude. However as the semester went on her attitude towards students quickly developed into a hostile learning atmosphere. When a student asks a question her immediate response is "Did you read the book?" every time! So of course no one wanted to ask questions after that.

This is the absolute worst teach I have ever encountered. she doesnt teach, talkes about whatever she feels like for the day, hates when a student has a question she does no help if a student is lost, not only that she will make them feel stupid. she talks down her students. doesnt follow any kind of book, and when asked any questions get offended

Dr. Blend is a horrible teacher, any directions that were given were very unclear, and if a question was asked she is very unwilling to help. She treats her students like they are in middle school, and she talks as though she is better then her students.Her lectures are read in a monotone, are boring and pointless.

If you would like to be in a class where your questions are halfway answered and you are constantly referred to a text book, take this class. I am a history fanatic and sadly I learned a lot from the text book from this class, but nothing from the instructor. She brings in a set of notes and reads them to you, no real conversation. Very opinionated

she's a hard teacher but you can't be lazy and if you pay attention you learn a lot in her class. I'm horrible at english and history but i passed with an A because i tried and studied.

I really liked this teacher and would take her again for another history class. If your a good student you will be fine but if you just want to slack off you wont pass

I can't believe some of this rating I never saw some of this remarks. You did have to pay attention if you are to get a good grade but this is true for any class. If your are going to argue with a teacher you were never taught respect when growing up. I think she was one of the easiest teacher you can get at cnm

Dr. Blend does have rather'dry' lectures but she is very knowledged in her field. I think her questioning students on their comments is her way of teaching students to think critically. She is very willing to help explain anything you don't understand.

WORST TEACHER! focused on her own agenda, not history. She used N.M. Hist course as platform for male bashing and other political agendas. Long, monotone lectures,and angry if any 'critical thinkers' challenge her opinion. I earned an A by regurgitating her lecture info on essays, but went to the Dean of CHSS dept about her blatant abuse of power.

All she did in this class was complain. I learned nothing, directions were unclear and it was the WORST experience of my life! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME!

She is simply awful! She will argue with everything a student says, never fallows the book, and lectures with a monotone voice for an hour and fifteen minutes. She's pointless.

Dr Blend (BLAND I prefer) After a droning, monotone lecture, early every hour ends with her spewing her political rantings of her loathing of America and all it's ways. She pushes the class into heated debates in which she argues every point a student brings. Usually off topic. I see no way to get a decent grade with this woman by any means.

wow, she drones on in a monotone voice, assigns to read one book lectures out a two others,one of the worst teachers i have had. she is a self admitted socialist and pretty much has nothing good to say about our country. she treats her students like children belittling them. i have no idea how she has remained a teacher, new mexioc must be hard up.

I have never heard anyone so blatantly disgusted by our nation. Constant remarks against military, veterans, political leaders, and even farmers. Constant remarks about the evil of the future of America, and on many occasions references to ways communist nations are better for the people. I am truly appalled by the statements made
