At first, she was really shy and soft-spoken but as the semester progressed, she began to speak up and take control of the classroom. She is always available to for the students and seems generally interested in helping them improve in their ability to write. She is very friendly. She is always willing to read a student's work and to comment on it before it is handed in. She is not an easy grader. You have to work for a good grade. I had to revise each paper over and over again before I received decent grades on them.
