Super sweet. She's so helpful, go see her in office if you are having any trouble, she's so approachable. Tests consisted of definitions, reading in the textbook and writing a short essay. She can be a harsh grader but she adds in a lot of comments to help you understand why you got the grade you got. She's also good at remembering names. Highly recommend if you actually want to learn.

GREAT teacher! :) I had her for "History of Science and Technology" and I loved her class and learned at lot. However, b/c most of our class was made up of health science students, she purposefully corrected the tests very harshly and never explained why we lost points. It also required a lot of work, way too much for a complementary.

I love Gesche with all my heart. She is kind, helpful and her slight accent is delightful. Though she is a VERY tough grader, if you work hard, you will attain the average and your R-score will be fine. I felt bad all semester because I fell asleep nearly every class, but not because Gesche is boring (on the contrary, actually; I was just staying up late for other courses). You WILL be tempted to write everything she says down, but don't. Just remember core concepts and you'll be fine.

Her classes can get boring bit but thats because its western civ, i dont blame her. She makes it interesting sometimes. Other than that, she is a great teacher! You have to take notes in her class, so you must pay attention all the time, avoid skipping her classes. Her quizzes are very easy and exams are easy too. She is a very very fair marker. Class average was normal not high not low, so you if you put a bit of time and effort you can get 90% easily without much hard work. Take her!
