She was one of the lecturers for GE Cluster 25A (Fall 2009), specializing in Japanese culture and history. She was a pretty decent lecturer. Some days were okay, others were a bit bland. Overall a good lecturer. I can't rate her on grading papers or exams since she didn't really do that stuff in the GE cluster. She left after fall quarter to some school in Massachusetts. The cluster itself is pretty chill, just a lot of reading, but you just need to get the main ideas/skim through it, sometimes for quotes to use in the essays. Your TA is more important in the cluster.
