Comment:
I took Her course back in '94 and still use the writing techniques and skills I learned to this day. What a difference this teacher made in my life. I am a better teacher because of her. I was the only male in a class of 19 students. This made for many fun and funny moments. I loved that course Advanced Composition.

I loved Professor Parkin! She's really friendly and approachable. Her assignments and tests were fair. Attendance is not mandatory and she's a pretty easy marker!

Best prof ever. She is a stand up comedian and her marking is super slack. I did better in her class than English 12! With way less effort. You write a story and one essay for her outside of class, 2 in-class assignments (a paragraph and an essay) and a final. If you have any writing talent you will get an A.

LOVED the class. Very nice professor, very helpful and accommodating. She doesnt teach with preconceived notions and encourages you to interpret Shakespeare yourself. Definitely recommend this class to everyone.

Best Prof. I love her. She's perfect - expects enough, none of this new fangled cr*p about modern interpretations unless you want to - she expects what's reasonable and is really helpful and flexible if you want to do one thing and the assignment is another. She's WONDERFUL! I love her!

I had never had proper instruction in English, and my writing reflected that. Christine broke the mould by filling in blanks that should have been addressed by elementary school teachers. Since 301, I have had compliments on my writing. Thanks!

Ms. Parkin is a very coherent and kind lady. You will learn a lot from her Shakespeare course, though contacting her can be difficult - she doesn't reply to email too readily, expect to nag her a lot. Very, very sweet and very able. Makes the subject enjoyable.
