Heavily stresses coding on exams. Can tend to be an unfair marker on assignments and projects. If you are given a choice for any career program course between her and anybody else, avoid her unless you REALLY know your stuff.
Helpful during office hours, though.

One of the best teachers in Comp Sci, if not the best. Jaya is always super helpful, always ready to explain (and re-explain) plus she has real (industry) experience which helps enormously when trying to debug spaghetti code. She is not 'easy', but she is fair. Do what needs to be done and you'll be better for it.

Computer Science Technology program, "Logic of Programming" class. Jaya is not only exceptionally nice, but also extremely knowledgeable and super helpful. She is one of the best teachers in the program. The class material is somewhat challenging, but she makes it easy; just make sure you attend class, because it can be easy to fall behind. I could easily imagine her being head of the program in the next five to ten years, once she is no longer "the newbie."
