i took her my first semester for love and thought it would be great. Although she is very nice and kind, she will fail you simply because your interpretation of poetry is different than her own. explains things very clearly but the class can be very boring.

I have no clue why she has such bad ratings, I loved her. She was super sweet, and answered many of my questions through mio. Everything is clearly written down in the class schedule, and her assignments are relatively easy. I had her for Love, though the class sometimes got long, everything she said was super interesting and knowledgable. Listen to her, do the readings and you will do fine, I finished with a 92 and the semester couldn't have gone better.

I don't know why everyone is giving her bad ratings, she is such a sweet teacher and loves her students. Just make sure to get on her good side as soon as possible and you'll do great in her class. I took her for Love and she really loves the subject and tries to get you to love it just as much as she does. I always listened and participated in class and she really liked me and I got an 88, definitely recommend her.

I took "Nature; Creating the Good Life" with her and she is one of the sweetest and most caring teachers I've ever had. All of the one star ratings are a bit far fetched, they were most likely written by students who were on her bad side (which can be easily avoided if you are just respectful to her and participate in class). Her tests were very easy and straight forward, make sure you do the readings (not much), treat her like a human being and respect her views and you'll get a 95% like I did.

I've had this teacher twice now and she never posts the grades on lea and she hands back assignments very late. Her class requires a lot of work and reading. The test that she gives out are really hard and she is really picky with the answers, if its mot the way she would write it its wrong. But the assignments are okay, you have to read very carefully. She is actually super crazy! She never gives half marks and its very confusing, and i enjoy the subjects but she teaches it in a boring manner

I love english and I am good at it. I share her passion for her subject matter, but I do not agree with the way she teaches. It is unfair and unclear. If you have this class by whatever means, to pass, you have to pay attention, be engaged, do all the homework and find out exactly what she wants and likes in her students work. Suck it up and just suck up to her. As I said, this will only guarantee a pass. Her grading method is still foreign to me and most of my class. Just show her you care.

Nice person but a terrible teacher. Once she gave me a 40% on an essay and assumed that I had a disorder just because her essay was hard to write. As others said, it's only if she likes you that you're guaranteed a good grade. Worst English course ever.

A weird and "mellow" kind of teacher. She talks in a very low and monotone voice and she gets mad easily and HATES when students talk. Her homework is easy and interesting to do as the subject LOVE is as well. Her exams are easy, seriously if you want an easy class, take Love with her. She's not that bad, just don't talk and be nice and she'll like you. She can't control her class...which gets annoying at times. In total, bit boring but I met super nice people there and the experience wasnt bad.

I don't like her..she takes things too personally and has a mono tone voice, and I can't hear her properly at times. She's strange, and her essay requirments are unclear. She is a slow one, and the way she marks is inaccurate. Her exams are weird, she picks her favorites. At the beginning of the semester it was interesting, but it felt like she ran out of things to teach the class. I had her for LOVE...do not take her, it's a waste of time.

i had her for LOVE, she's a special one. she does speak very low and hates when you talk while she's talking but she marks pretty easy and her assignments and essays aren't hard, you just have to make sure you follow the outline and you'll be fine. a lot of group discussions where you pretty much sit and do nothing. i got an 87 overall, just have fun with the class. i would DEFINITELY take her again!

She's like a modern day hippie. She always talks in a calm, low voice. She hates when people talk out of turn, and she gives a lot of work once u hit the middle of the semester. She's there for you if you ask for help, and she gives you many chances to pass (re-doing essays, extra credit assignments, etc). I got a laugh out of her, she is a good teacher. Very sweet lady.

Patricia isnt a very good teacher- the class content in LOVE is horrible and boring and she is way too strict on students (no phones... EVER). however anyone with a brain could easily pass and do well in this course. he tests are beyond easy, in class assignments take barely any effort, but she is tough on essay marking. All in all boring class, but still hilarious at times.

she's an okay teacher. hard marker, soft voice (don't talk in her class because you won't hear her if you do), and tends to not make sense (ex: she won't listen to opposing opinions when discussing readings in class and seems to be pulling meanings from poems/short stories out of thin air). I won't say she's bad (she does care) but I don't suggest her.

Where to start? You would expect to learn about English stuff like grammar, short stories, poetry, ect yet all we ever talk about is nature! To be honest she is very annoying, she repeats herself about 20x and is very opinionated. This is definately a class you should avoid because there is a big work load and you never know if you've done well becasue she never hands back the corrected stuff. Overall ... don't take her!

It seems she makes up rules about literature and grammer. If she gives you an assignment you have to do it exactly in her format or you'll fail. Basically she doesn't even look at or care about the content. Avoid the class.

Personally, i think she's weird. A bit ditzy for her age, and she can be nice most days but if you talk in class or give the impression that you don't care, she can blow up on you. Definetly a humanities class for humanities, NOT english. If you bull well, you'll do well.
