She is a really good to teacher! During her exams, she lets you use your study guide. Her explanations are really clear and she is very interesting. However, her assignments can be pretty long and demanding and she is strict when it comes to using your phone or laptop in class

Had her for intro to psychology, and she's honestly one of the nicest, most caring teachers at Dawson. If you get her, grab a good coffee, and go to her class because it is very interesting and easy to get 100%.... Great teacher (+ she is the head of the psychology department, so she knows her stuff very well and could help you a lot.)

Had her for General Psych. Finished her class with 100 as my final grade and not even because of high scores in my tests but because I did all the bonus assignments she gave. Follow the instructions for her assignments properly and you can score very well on them also. She is very knowledgeable and makes the class very interesting with the videos she shows. I highly recommend her.

Amazing teacher. Had her for psych. and ended the semester with a fantastic grade. As long as you know what you are doing she will give you the marks. Allowed cheat sheets which are really useful. Would definitely take her again if I could.

Alrite ... here is the truth. DO NOT BE LATE. She looks down on that. Yes, even if it is a few mins. She demands alot of work, but if u pay attention in class and take notes, you will be fine. She explains clearly, and if you do not not understand something, she is always there to lend a helping a hand. She is approachable and understands those, who wanna learn and those she sees trying.

REALLY nice teacher, all tests are multiple choice and open book, well at least in her Cognitive Development class, the stages are really fun and your really able to interact with the children and able to really learn what you really want to do with the rest of your life, I really recommend this teacher, she takes a lot of time to explain everything, and she accepts late homework without taking marks off as long as it doesn't happen all the time!!

I really liked Ms. Turner! Had her for General and Developmental Psychology. Class wasn't hard, & tests are mostly multiple choice. She gives the short-answer questions beforehand in way of study guide questions. Do those questions before the test, and you've got the test in the bag. She's very helpful and approachable in my opinion. However, I won't deny she has favorites. But if you are a good and hard-working student, she's on your side all the way. Recommended!
