I had her for " Plato's Cave". She is the sweetest teacher. She is really enthusiastic about the course. It shows that she likes what she is talking about and that makes it so much more interesting for the students. The course consists of reading a book and showing up to class. It is very easy to get good grades with her. The only disadvantage is that her classes are early in the morning. I would strongly recommend her.

I took "Plato's Cave" and "The Existentialist Project" with her. One of the best and sweetest teachers I've had at Vanier. I really liked and got along with her very well. Her classes are for the most part very interesting, a lot of videos about philosophers and ideas are shown as well as class discussion. The workload is very light and 20% of your grade is literally just showing up and answering her philosophical question in 2 pages which takes 30 min of the class. Defintely take her!! :)

I had her for "Plato's Cave", I would take this class with a friend because its kind of boring but she's an easy teacher and super sweet and nice, 20% of your marks are easy marks, just show up and write a 2 page journal, the tests are based off the book and she even gives you a study guide which helps a lot.

I had her for Plato's Cave which was incredibly boring but it was very easy to pass her class. If you read the book, answer her question booklet and have a nice project you'll easily pass. Every question on the test is from the question booklet so make sure you start doing it from day 1, trust me, it will save you the headache. Take her, it's an easy class and she's very nice. Don't miss class because she will remove marks from you.

My favorite teacher so far. She makes everything so interesting,and loves what she does.
Easy going and funny. If you do your homework you will easily pass your exams, she takes everything from there (and there's not a lot of homework). The class is usually early, and attempting is mandatory.

Had her for perpetual peace and i have to admit that even if the class was sometimes really boring (3-hour class 8:30-11:30) i learned a lot of stuff. You can see that she knows what she's talking about and there are a lot of discussions. If you have something to say though, you better have a good argument because she's going to ask you to justify it. Overall, she's a good teacher so if you're into philosophy and politics, take her, you'll enjoy the class...otherwise, avoid it

Ah, good old days in her class! Of course, it wasn't really easy (lots of stuff to read + plus some of these books are not really understandable), but it was quite interesting. Her synagogue/mosque/church trip (Liberal Arts) is a truly ingenious thing. The essays/projects are challenging, especially the "Socrates Dialogue", but they are also truly awesome. What's more, she's nice and helpful. Overall, I kept good memories of her class. But, really, you need to work hard in this class.

she's ok teacher. What made her humanities "Plato's cave" class interesting was mostly the discussions she initiated and less her own speaking. She also used a novel instead of a textbook... quite nice. But you do have to know LOTS of details from the book (ex.dates, names...). + you have to make you own notes (she gives 0-3%notes) while reading the book. And she gives almost no hints on what to put into our notes... the whole "Sophie's World" novel or what?
