This girl is cracked.... but I honestly loved it!! There's nothing worse than going to a class where a teacher puts you to sleep. Her high energy may be shocking at first, but you will grow to appreciate it. It is very easy to do well in her class, however the class average is so high that i found myself struggling to stay above. Her tests are not difficult, however require A LOT of memorization. Be sure to show up to class since theres always a chance to get bonus marks, and don't procrastinate

shelagh's a really sweet teacher. she is hyper but thats a plus since she's not a teacher who sits there lecturing in a really monotone voice, so its not boring. she does a lot of dyad activities. her exams are extremely fair if you study and she even lets you use all your class notes. she gives readings and questions to do every week but they're really straight forward and the answers are literally all there. she also gives shelagh bills which are bonus points at the end of the semester

I had Shelagh for psych during my first semester at Dawson and I can admit that she was my favourite teacher. She always had so much energy and easily had every student's attention. I've never had a more positive teacher who had such a strong passion for what they did. Shelagh never gave too much work and her tests weren't too difficult. I highly recommend taking her because you will have an amazing psychology experience and she might be one of the better teachers at Dawson.

Shelagh is a dynamic person who tries her best to make class interesting. A lot of interaction and group conversation. If you like learning new things and you are discipline I would recommend her. Don't be surprised, there is a lot of homework and reading, she check them for participation marks. If you have her try to not be late and DO NEVER USE YOUR CELLPHONE IN CLASS!! Overall, she is nice person and her class never gets boring!

Shelagh is such a positive, uplifting,genuine, kind person. She is so very knowledgable and has a unique, interactive teaching style. For me personally, her high level of energy is contagious. Going to her class and speaking to her always puts me in a good mood. Shes one of those teachers who want nothing but the very best for you and she will bend backwards to help you succeed. Shes an excellent prof and an even better human being.I really appreciate her. P.s. Never use ur phone during class!!!

Love this teacher!! Though she might be too energetic for a monday morning, she's an awesome teacher. She does everything to make her classes fun and is really into teaching. You can get easy 90s with her in psychology if you do all the assignments and work she asks you to do and trust me they are SO EASY! Just be prepared for class and bring your keyterms because she does randomly pick students to answer her question but you are allowed to use your notes! She also gives you extra points!

It blows my mind how someone could be so energetic for an 8am class..... She was a good teacher but sometimes I really felt like I was in a kindergarten class because of the way she would teach her class. Honestly, just do all the at-home notes and you'll be fine for her exams. You're allowed those notes for her exams which is great. She checks if you do your notes and if you do she'll send you hers also which I only used for the exams cause everything on hers are right and detailed.

She's very energetic and lovable, but I find that sometimes her energy achieves Dora the Explorer levels and you feel like a child. Her exams are very easy, and she makes almost everything simple to understand (there are some things that she doesn't talk about but tells you to study from the book...). The class was very interesting and... unusual(a lot of teamwork and place-changing to work with different ppl). It's true that you can either love her or hate her, there's no in-between.

Amazing teacher, she really knows how to make sure you know the material before tests, so when it comes to studying it's a lot easier because you remember her tricks. I agree that you either love her or hate her, depends on what kind of student you are. You have to be in class on time, and locks out people that are late. She's really energetic (sometimes too much), but overall she's great and a really passionate teacher. Made me enjoy general psych!

Her class is really easy but im failing cause i despise going to her class and therefore missing out on almost all of her material. Man, at 8:30 in the morning, she is the last person you would want to see. too energetic. Annoyingly energetic. Trust me you'll want to shoot yourself. Screw that and take someone else.

She has a very distinct teaching style that you will either adore or despise. It just happened to click for me and I got high 90's in her gen psych. There is a lot of upbeat, interaction and getting out of your comfort zone in her class. If you do the readings to get your "smiley faces" and stay up to date you will be fine. Her exams are EXTREMELY fair but you cant skip because questions from class material are often on there (such as "did we watch this in class?" and notes not from the book)

This teacher is different. She does not teach you, you have to read from the text book and then discuss topics in class. The first few classes are very irritating because you are not yet used to her energy. but as the weeks go on, she grows on you. A lot of memorization for her exams. However, other actives and papers are easy. She rewards people who attend class and participate. Take her to try something different. WARNING. She will make the class sit against the wall and theres no room.

Took her for general psychology, the most interactive teacher I've ever had, which is either good or bad depending on how you look at it. Her perkiness and high energy can sometimes be a little too much, even for her, but it makes it very easy to understand the material & her exams are exactly what she tells you they are.

Shelagh is a wonderful teacher who is always full of energy and who makes all the material easy to understand and remember. You get to know the class by being paired into dyads for group activities. The classes are long, but you learn a lot and if you pay attention and do the assignments and readings (yes there are a lot of them, but if you get the gist of the articles, you'll be ok), then there's no way to not pass this class with a very high grade. Would definitely take her again!

Had her for 3hr Psych class. You have to do the work if you want to pass, no question. And you really do have to study if you want a chance at passing her test. Very fair class, you do good work you get good grades. Her lectures can get kind of long and she's very into what she talks about, sometimes almost seeming hyper but it's her way of teaching. It can get boring at times (3 hours!) but can also be very interesting. She puts you in diff. pairs all the time. I must say I did learn a lot!

Well, she is a smart teacher. As a person, she can have her weird moments which is not what we are too concerned about. The materials are fun and she does make ways to make the class alive and interactive. She likes that the class gives a chance to bond with each other. When it comes to lecture, she talks too fast. It feels like she's skipping over topics that needs more explanations. She's HYPER! and she talks too fast to a point where you are lost! In the end, she marks very fair and easy!
