I loved her as a teacher she helped me a lot over the three years I had her.
I overall enjoyed her class, I've had her twice and I wish I was going to be in her class in the fall. She is strict but she's a good teacher.
I had her for first two classes of the day, she's great! She's not as great on her bad days, but as long as you stay on her good side you're fine. She notices qualities in students and is very approachable. She has a lot class debates. She gives a lot of homework and always checks it (so make sure you do it!) It really depends on what kind of student you are, but if you're a good student who does their homework and doesn't try to make her mad, you'll like her and she'll like you.
Worst teacher ever, My first experience with her was fine. I got 95% in the course (this is my average give or take). Then I had her next semester... The first assignment I wrote (a solid 90%+ for sure) she gave me 60% on. I asked why, and she gave little reasonable explanation. She did point out a few mistakes but she not a valid arguement for 60%. I asked to redue the assignment, and her response was, "no." Secondly, there were frequently questions on her tests that she forgot to teach...
Really awesome teacher, tries to draw people out of their shells and get everyone included in discussions and debates.
She uses alot of big words so sometimes it confussing but she tries to be friendly with students and tries to help. She can be strict but usually only where its needed
Very intelligent, approachable, and helpful teacher. Treats all students as equals, offering her expertise to anyone. Students regard her as unbeatable when it comes to debates and this is one thing I wish she didn't agree w/
Amazing teacher, great subject. She's so comfortable in front of her class.
A tough teacher that gets the job done, glad to have her. But why *does* everyone call you Swainer?
best teacher i ever had, wish i could have spent more time in her philosophy classes debating with her, and always losing
Swainer... what to say.. definitely one of the most intelligent teachers EVER, and one of the most helpful. It's hard to make politics fun but she did it.
Swain, man you'll never win a debate with her. Great teacher, an even better person!
