She's an awesome teacher if you're on her 'good side'; if you aren't and you continue to be rude she'll make it clear that she thinks your wasting her time.
Her being mean is merely a stereotype and is an amazing teacher, and no doubt one of the best teachers I've had.

She's an awesome teacher, if she picks on you probably deserve it. She has a line that's quite hard to cross, but just don't try it.

Very biased and insensitive at times. Especially during the studying of Religious Fundamentalism, she did not respect the beliefs of some people in the class. Good at what she does however

A polarising teacher, some love her, some hate her. There was never any middle ground. I found it sad that she put people off a subject that they wolud havre enjoyed/done well in.

I would have to agree with the comment that she is very biased. She could consider all factors when downing some students and give them a break.

Well, what can i say. She does tend to favoritise and has a high level of dicipline, but overall a good teacher. "Her bark is worse than her bite."
