I learned so much in gothic fiction, not only about the class, but also how to write good essays in general. Everytime I go to her office hours, she's really helpful and always in a good mood. One of the best teachers I ever had. She also sends you multiple files on omnivox so that you have everything you need to get good grades. Definitely recommend!

Best English teacher! Open-minded to any idea with a minimal base of logic, bubbly personality that keeps the class entertained, and knowledgable about any subject. Also a very kind and understanding teacher that picks interesting and timeless books for her courses. Had her for 2nd and 3rd semester, and students in my class have always tried to repick her.

One thing is for sure, I didn't enjoy her class AT ALL this semester. I agree with the comments below, take her class if you hate yourself. She may seem sweet and peppy and enthusiastic towards you, don't let that fool you. I visit her during her office hours in hopes of somewhat being able to salvage my grade in which I leave, again, more stress and confused leaving than I did going in. She will massacre your work without mercy. I'm now debating whether or not selling my soul to pass her class.

Worse thing that happened to me this year. Take her if you hate yourself. Decent marker, but hemorrhoid level anal retentive. Will make sure you are present for every last second of the four most boring hours of your week.
Her class is in no way mindbogglingly complex, but you will be doing a lot of work. Avoid if you want an easy grade OR a cool class. (For those who know, she's sort of like the anti-Ralickas, who's interesting and laid back but will tear your essay down without mercy.)

Huffels has numerous flaws which cannot be summarized in 500 characters. Her helpfulness towards me was very questionable seeing as when went to her for help she confused me by demanding me to change my topic to one I had no knowledge on. This left me bewildered as to what she wanted, and caused me much stress and deliberation. In asking for even more help she would treat me in a condescending manner. While she may be a good person, she is a sub par teacher. She may also be sexist towards guys

Makes you work very hard for the class, but it's all worth it. Seriously, writing just came together in this class. With her careful planning on when to give us work, I could really give my 110% for everything we did and got near-perfect grades I never thought possible in an English class (I'm from a French school). Very knowledgeable about her subject and gives insightful historical information. Cares loads about her student, and has a participation system that makes everyone shine. Take!
