the people who complain about kelly either suck at writing or just didn't want to put in the work. i got an A in the class by making an effort and listening to her suggestions.

Absolutely terrible teacher, homework was far more than what needs to be for an intro English course

terrible class. She was never clear what she wanted from each of the papers (she wants you to ignore all you learned about writing) and asking for help is useless. You will actually HAVE to BS some parts of your papers to get a passing grade, you'd be surprised how easily you can get screwed over through no fault of your own.

Personally, I liked Kelly. She was hillarious and her class was never dull. She isn't an simple grader but if you actually try you should do okay. She is always available for help outside of class and is very approachable. Take her.

RED FLAG DO NOT TAKE!!! Her courses are long, dull, and pointless, but yet she requires attendance as part of your grade. She grades very difficult on papers and gives no reason why. According to her, great papers are c's, great papers are b's, and a's rarely exist. 2 out of the 4 papers she didnt give out a single A. Also takes forever to grade.

Kelly Austin is an very friendly and hillarious woman. However, her ENG 115 is a strange fieldworking class disguised as Rhetoric class. She tells you the first day of class that she never gives As. Grades more on content than on writing ability. The class is tedious, repetitive, and thus mandatory. Avoid unless you love abnormal, informal writing.

Forced to spend a semester stalking a group and writing a portfolio of papers that Kelly would tear apart with meaningless critiques, this class was a useless pain. Always got the same grade so no point in trying! courses=pointless but attendance was required. Definitely writing for the teacher here, and she's no more than a literate baboon. dislike.

Kelly is a fantastic teacher. She does a great job of being your friend while still keeping authority in the classroom. I feel like I can talk to her about anything, and she's very accommodating on papers. Take her for Rhetoric! You learn about writing but also about a subculture you're not familiar with. Take this! You won't regret it. :)

TAKE HER courses!! She is such a great teacher. I learned so much from her and her instruction improved my writing tremendously. She is definitely not an unimpartial grader, she just knows bull when she reads it! Oh and make sure to do the reading she assigns, she almost always talks about it in class.
