She comes to class with great intentions. Everyday a smile on her face, and an open persona ready to field numerous questions. This begins to serve detrimental when She encourages questions so much so that the lecture plan for the day gets abandoned. So, she is a very kind, caring, and helpful person, but her dynamic about questions completely undermines a structured itinerary. In summary, she is a great professor but still a bit naive. She will be amazing when she learns more discipline and structure. The class, ESS9, is extremely entertaining and very EASY. Lecture gets boring, solely because it starts at 9:30, which is way to early for me. TAKE THIS CLASS, TAKE ANY CLASS WITH KAVNER. She is helpful and easy.

I love Professor Kavner, she is the sweetest and really cares about her students! However, this was such an unclear and confusing class. She graded none of our work before she submitted our final grades, which was A LOT of work, and then arbitrarily assigned 95% of the class B's with 1 or 2 A's and C's. I did a lot of hard work for this class so I was very disappointed to never receive any feedback and then get a poor grade.

I took plate tectonics with Kavner. She's great! It was her first time teaching the class so many of the concepts were simplified but we still learned a lot. She is extremely willing to help with the homework and really wants everyone to understand the concepts and get a good grade. The textbooks didn't really help too much but there were some concepts in them that showed up on the exams. The midterm and final weren't tricky as long as you went to all of the lectures. The final paper and presentation wasn't difficult at all- just make sure you pick something that interests you.
