Horrible horrible teacher. Ridiculously boring and pointless, she didn't actually instruct one single class.

Not a bad teacher, but very boring. She uses a lot of class time to talk about the assignments and just repeats the same information over and over again. The assignments are pretty easy, but are very long. I would not recommend.

She's a good teacher. Took her for stress coping skills and active living. The class consists of the students presenting a physical activity to the rest of the class. As long as you do the presentation and the assignments you'll do great. She explains things fairly well. Answer all questions on assignments with as much detail as possible. If you miss more than 3 classes she'll let you make up for them.

Took Stress Coping Skills, thought It'd help alleviate some tension, instead it gives me more stress. Easy assignments, except they are EXTREMELY long. About 10-15 questions, sometimes even more and you have to answer with 4-5 sentences each. So, the total comes up to 2-3 pages? She takes off points if you use words like "more, less, healthier, junk food". Takes about 30-45 minutes talking every class so you really just have one hour of "gym".

She is an excellent teacher. She obviously is knowledgeable about her subject and takes it very seriously. She is a hard marker but really has students' best interest at heart. Assignments are easy. I would take her again.

If you have her for stress coping, be ready to do assignments that will take you hours to complete. However, if you do all the work (and include useless details in your assignments) you will get 90's

For stress coping she does not teach, its the student presentations. She asks for alot on assignments but if you do it she marks so easy.

Easy. She gives a lot of assignments, but it's easy to do well because it doesn't require any logic. She gives the same assignments year after year so if you know anyone that took her before,your set!

She is a very nice woman, maybe not the best teacher. If you go to class and do the assignments, you'll do fine. Write them in excruciating detail, as she takes marks off if it's not detailed enough.

I have to say, she is sometimes boring. Approachable. She wants everything done "the right way" which is her way. She's an easy marker if you play nice and do the work.
