If you got her as your UW instructor, you are one of the lucky ones! I loved her, and I think everyone in my class did. Although at fist, I was complaining about the workload, it wasn't that bad compared to the other classes. I was stuck with three papers by the last week of the semester, but it wasn't really her fault. I think UW class itself is very tightly scheduled course.
She is a very nice person and a fair grader. Even better, she is a pretty good teacher. I think I really learned something about writing and a lot of other kids in my class did also.
She tries hard to be available outside of class. For every formal paper you write, you will get a mandatory conference with her, which is very helpful. And if you wish to meet her for another occasion, she will willingly make an appointment with you.
