I found Sandy to be an excellent instructor. She met the students where they were, offering in-depth responses to their work, suggesting resources, and providing encouragement. She was generous in the time, care, and thought she put into helping each student grow as a writer and explore their work.
Finally, I loved Sandy’s directness. She tells you exactly what she thinks, not in a “you must do this” kind of way (because she always says her comments are just suggestions), but in a genuine “think about this,” “I loved this,” “but what about this” way, so that I really came to trust her feedback. She’s very engaged and obviously loves teaching.
