Jackie is by far the best teacher I have ever had. She is thoroughly prepared for every class and has extensive knowledge of each text. She is also very nice and cares most about your own progression and understanding of the texts. She also makes discussion very interesting and enjoyable - something unique for a two hour class. Take advantage of the opportunity to take her class! You will not regret it.
Jackie's extensive preparation for every lit hum class made for a great discussion every meeting. She came with a good idea of where the discussion would go, but was flexible enough to allow it to take its own direction according to the interest of the class. All of her ideas and advice on every paper were greatly helpful, both in the course, and certainly in my reading of books in general. She is a great teacher and made Lit Hum an amazing experience, and made our class a really little bonded community.
Jackie is hands down the greatest teacher I've had all year, and this her first year of teaching lit hum! The class is excited to participate and do all the readings, which are, as standardized, quite long, in order to not disapoint her. She knows a great deal about what she's talking about, most notably for the Greek and Latin texts we covered, but certainly does very well on the other texts as well. All in all, I can't recommend Jackie highly enough. she's also British, and her accent has, no doubt, contributed to the enthusiasm of the males in the class, if you know what I mean.
