Prof Lie-Spahn is both brilliant and caring. Her class is warm and welcoming, and she is incredibly personable with each student. She cares about student's mental health and about building a community of first-years within the classroom. She really dissects the writing process and attempts to demystify good writing. She understands how overwhelming a task writing can be and goes over strategies to address that. I also found the readings largely short, fascinating, and enjoyable. She is such a gem of a professor, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a first-year writing course.
