Joyce knows her subjects inside and out. Many students have issues with her because she isn't the type to just let you coast through. You're paying money to be in her class and to learn, and she's going to make sure you get every penny. She can be perceived as 'mean' or 'harsh', when in fact all she is doing is trying to get her students to think further and work harder. Her main goal is for student achievement, it isn't like she makes a huge amount of money teaching here. If she didn't care about her students and their academic futures, she wouldn't be here. God forbid a professor actually asks her students to do college level work.

She expects you to know more than you actually do. She expects you to know most of the vocabulary that is in the stories we read and is very unclear about how she wants her essays written. She puts you on the spot too often and it is very uncomfortable for people who aren't quick thinkers. She wants you to have the same answer that she is thinking of. She shouldn't be teaching an introductory class; she would be better with English majors who are in their senior year. I haven't learned anything in English class since the 8th grade and her class is no exception. All we talk about is the stories we had read for homework and nothing else. Her class is a big waste of my time. I can't believe I paid money to take her class. Such a disappointment.

Prof. Thomas knows her stuff but expects students to work incredibly hard and know things that only senior english majors would know. She does try to help and will meet with you if you ask, but if you are looking for an easy english class, do not take one with her.

She was very rude to people who didn't talk a lot in class or people who didn't give her exactly what she wanted in class discussions or presentations. She likes her subject a lot but definitely had favorites and is even cruel to the others.
