She has a dry sense of humor, and clearly cares about the learning of her students. She answers questions thoroughly in class. Quizzes and tests are very fair, but you do have to study to do well.

Comment:
She's obviously a very knowledgeable professor and in her actual class she is generally quite good (if a bit uncelar and patronizing sometimes)- but mainly I have beef with her because as an honors advisor she is dreadful. Her advice to me for honors was "don't do honors"- which was both incredibly off-putting and unhelpful.

Great professor, she gives clear expectations for assignments and tests and is available for extra help. As far as lectures go she is brilliant and often really funny.

Very interesting and thoughtful. Unfortunately, she speaks so quietly she's nearly impossible to understand.

Comment:
I had leona for greek, tragedy and epic. all became my favorite classes. she really sympathizes with the pain of taking a dead language and makes it so much more comprehensible. in the literary classes she was SO insightful. i cant beleive how much i have learned from her classes. she is wonderful

Comment:
Very nice woman. Would probably be great for a classical litterature class but for teaching a dead language she's horrible. Very disorganized and very confusing. Does not realize that most of us have never seen Greek before and forgets to explain bassic concepts. You're basically paying to teach yourself greek from the text book.

First-rate example of a prof who should stay in research. Knows her material very well but doesn't know how to teach it.
