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 took her class because there was no other option. Patricia doesn't hand back work on time, there were no explanations for the marks just X's all over my test. Her classes are boring, there are a lot of readings and surprise quizzes. There are no oral presentations or anything. The only thing I liked about Patricia was that she gave chances to make up mark (extra assignments). I failed all of the 5 tests we did (I studied really hard and had similar answers to others) and managed to pass well.

She is an awful teacher. Even if there was absolutely no other English option left available, you are much better off doing English as an intersession or during the summer than taking her class..
She is always in her own world when she speaks and cannot explain assignment instructions clearly. She does not return assignments or tests and does not post grades on LEA. Her marking is harsh and unfair, especially to those who really do put in the effort.

This is by far the worse teacher I've ever had. I've never had bellow an 85 in English before in my life, and I'm failing her class. She has no rubrics for assignments and her criteria for assigned work is very unclear. On my last test she gave me 45% and I actually studied for the test and had well developed paragraphs for each question. I've never gotten a grade so horrible in anything. DO NOT TAKE HER and if you get stuck with her DROP HER CLASS ASAP I really regret not doing so.

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.

Similar at times to a humanities class. Most of the assignments are very bizarre, such as active reading and 'what issues of the universe does this raise for you? Getting through this one might be a challenge.

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.
