Dr. Renelle is a wonderful teacher. Her care for her students and her craft as both a writer and educator was evident from my first interaction with her. I’m on a very limited budget, and Dr. Renelle was able to offer me a stipend that allowed me to take two of her courses. In class, she’s friendly and engaging, the exercises she led were a good balance of comfortable and stretching, and, my favorite quality of her teaching: she asks unexpected and thought-provoking questions. Many times I found that I was most productive after class, because my mind had had time to really chew on something Dr. Renelle brought to us.
