as is always the case, if you show up to class, it's ridiculously easy to do well. i honestly don't understand what all the complaints are about, she's a well-organized straight forward teacher.

Everything that people say about her is false. She is a very nice and humble person. If ever you need help she won't hesitate to offer it. The only problem is she simply cannot teach the simplest of concepts. However her evalutions are simpler than other profs. She is very intelligent and is probably the most knowlegeable in her field, but can't

She is not a teacher. She has been there since before the time of the nuns and, now plagued by senility, is no longer suitable to teach at any level of schooling. Having said that, it's still easy to get an 85% in her class, but you will learn absolutely nothing and skip half the time. (or more if you're like me :)
