Learned about few aspects of happiness with her by doing the final project, however, tests were hard if you did not understand the material. She was passionate with the subject, but i wanted to drop this class when there was two weeks left of class because the instruction was so unclear that it unmotivated me. Not many homeworks, but make sure you understand and take all notes down. No powerpoint - all handwritten.

Besides being an incredibly kind and sweet lady, she is a very knowledgeable and talented professor. She inspired an even greater interest in Philosophy in me. Although the content she teaches and her exams can be difficult and at a university level, the amount you will learn over the course make it worth it. Also a plus, she'll let you try honey from her bee farm!

She absolutely knows what she is talking about, but oh my god she is one of the most disorganized teachers I have ever had. She had a multiple choice on her midterm worth 20%, and later on during the semester realized she forgot to add 10%t to her course outline. This mistake resulted in her making our final paper worth 40% of the grade. If you can I would avoid this teacher at all costs.

She knows what she's talking about and is clearly passionate about philosophy, but avoid her! She's condescending, annoying, extremly disorganized, and her lectures are really boring. Make sure you do your readings before attending lecture or you're screwed. Also, she's a super tough marker, so beware!!

She knows what she's talking about. However, she is incredibly inconsiderate. She answers questions other than the ones you asked. She interrupts people and is condescending. The multiple choice questions on her tests are impossible and the way she grades evaluations doesn't make sense. She is a disorganized mess and will make you suffer for her frequent mistakes. Avoid her at all costs.

Very knowledgeable about philosophy and the tests are very easy. She enjoys her job and it comes through during class. She enjoys when students ask question (If they aren't really stupid) and will spend all the time necessary to answer them. There's no final exam but instead a huge essay at the end of the semester that takes a lot of work, other than that paying attention in class is more than enough to get a good mark in this class. Tells you exactly what will be on tests and covers every topic

She is very knowledgeable about philosophy, but as soon as you ask a question she will drift off completely from the question, and you will get lost. She is nice. On the course outline it says it's required to have the 2 books. She explains everything in class; no need for the book at all.

When she is trying to explain something, she will go on and on about it to the point where it just becomes confusing. Her opinion is right and everyone else's is wrong. Other than that, she's a nice and understanding teacher, tests are extremely easy (gives you the questions on the study guide), but she is a bit of a hard marker!

Absolutely great teacher. Listen because the philosophy she teaches comes in handy for decisions about life. Take good notes for her tests otherwise your sunk. You can ask her anything and she is really open to different perspectives. She is really fun and funny in class, I learned alot. I am taking her again this fall.
