Student comments:

Professor Wolf is “extremely organized and clear with her students. . . . She makes the course [as] engaging as it can be even though it is online. . . . I like most that she asks her students to give a lot of personal history when writing discussions or essays[.] [I]t makes a difference when as a student I feel like my professor wants to know how I connect to the things I am learning even if we aren’t face to face. Professor Wolf is an amazing professor and even though I have never personally met her I know just by the way she structures her course she cares about students success because she makes everything so incredibly clear and is there for her students when [we] need [her]. . . . If I were to give her class a grade it would be A++!!” (Endicottt College student official evaluation of Lizzi’s course in Literature for Children, ENG-312-03, Spring Term 2020)
