So, I'm writing this during the Poetry class she has been assigned.
"I interpreted this way, so it's right."
"I'm more experienced, so I'm right."
"I'ts not about interpretation, it's about putting together the poetic elements, the themes, etc."
I could write out more of her quotes, but I don't want to remember too much of her contradictions and illogical sayings.
TL;DR Don't, just don't take her. I beg you.

Although she isn't a bad person, she seems to make disrespectful comments to students without realizing it. Her classes are usually slight confusing because she never seems to be prepares or know what she's trying to say. Her exams aren't difficult if you're well prepared but because it was a confusing class, people didn't take it seriously and the average was almost failing. She for sure has her favorites so if you do have her, try to get on her good side because she will be more lenient.

Oh boy where to begin. While I don't think she is necessarily a bad person, she can't talk to her students without disrespecting and belittling them. She's very "my way or the highway", which is unfortunate, because her way changes every 5 minutes. She'll take marks off based on personal preferences (hyphens as bullet points for example). All in all, I've never had a teacher who was more disrespected as well as disrespectful towards their students. AVOID AT ALL COSTS

I never thought I could get a teacher that bad, but it wasn't even frustrating, it was just sad. This teacher cannot teach anymore, having cognitive problems and admittedly being bipolar. Her class was terribly useless and the teacher was ultra confusing because she didn't even know what she was doing. She can turn from a sweet lady to a complete psycho in a few seconds. Is stubborn. Is too opiniated. Is rude to her students and discriminates students if their mother tongue isn't English. Avoid.

condescending, extremely rude, zero patience. patently ignores students when they are trying to explain something to her, then snaps at them when she doesn't understand what they were previously explaining. enjoys casually mentioning how great her daughter is and how she knows X because she did Y. generally considers her viewpoint on any subject to be the be-all end-all. appears to hate her job and take it out on her students. mostly just a terrible human being.

She doesn't know what she wants, is very biased and clearly shows favouritism. Her remarks are rude and is very unclear about her expectations. Would've failed if another teacher hadn't replaced her... do not take her.

i did well in her class. she has specific opinions and can sometimes isn't aware that they can be offensive. a lot of people didn't really like her but if you do the work she assigns and do the corrections she asks, you will get a good grade. the key is not to take anything personally and just do the work. she grades well, doesn't take attendance and is helpful in office hours.

The worst teacher I ever had. Ever. I never thought I'd feel the need to write on rate my teachers someday but after a semester with her I can confirm that she is totally crazy and unfair. I had her in Writing in a Visual World and it was the worst choice I ever made; she is contemptuous, stubborn and closed-minded and gives grades depending on people instead of their work.

I had this teacher in I.C.E. as my first english class and from the very first class she acted like a real b****. She tells you what you have to think and if you don't think the same way, you are wrong. Period. The trick is: follow every instructions she tells you in an essay and be asuck up. You have to be super well-behaved in class, listen, answer questions and agree with her all the time. In the essay, copy the exact format she showed you. I hated her, but got a great mark cuz she liked me

HUGE disapointment. Fails miserably as a poet and is a tact-less, blunt, egocentric, discriminating hound of a teacher. If you want to succeed in Poetics, write lame, cliched poetry with some artificial rhythym and carry her books to the office. A staggering majority of my peers would have withdrawn from her class and possibly even their programs if they knew what to expect. I clench my fists and teeth together every session with irritation.
