This is hands down the worst teacher at cal poly. you are better off taking less units or staying an extra quarter to avoid her class. She will make you dread school before, during, and after class. Happy hunting!
I attended every single class, actively participated, was interested in the course subjects, met with classmates to study for literally 10+ hours for the midterm and final... and this was absolutely the biggest slap in the face I have ever received from a Cal Poly professor. I'm a Psychology major and am embarrassed to have her representing the College of Liberal Arts. She is very biased on who she likes in class (she likes boys), she downloads power points created by professors from other schools (stole a power point from a Texas professor and erased his name... you cant do that!) and knows nothing about the text that she chooses to assign. Her tests are very unbalanced... multiple choice worth 20pts each and essays worth 5pts each? Not to mention all the random things she would throw in there that had nothing to do with the focus of study. Caldwell is condescending and thinks her S*** doesn't stink. If you question her grading at all... she will lower your grade even more! According to her 'I'm never wrong, my class, my rules'... not someone I would recommend to my worst enemy.
She is honestly, the best teacher on this god given plannet. Picture the night sky, with comets shooting, and fireworks going off at the same time, and thats what every class is like with her. Take her, you wont regret it.
She talks to the class like she's super relaxed, and she tells you that you'll do just fine...and then BAM! She sticks it to you by including questions in the test about random stuff from the textbook. You know, the random one sentence bit of trivia on page 367? Yes that would be the question on the test. I hope never to take a course taught by her again.
She is literally the worst. We had a 15 person group project. It was hell in her class because she never stayed on topic and spent the first 20 minutes asking about everyone's weekend or playing some sort of music video that was not helpful to understand the material. And she sprung on us last minute that the final was cumulative and the final was so insanely hard. Unjustly so because she teaches nothing.
try to avoid if you can.she is a nice person and obviously good at what she does (outside of teaching) she has cool stories but its not worth hearing them if you want to do good and learn in a class.
Fuck this guy. Id like to stick my tounge up his ass.
