One of her students shared, “Ms. Curley is dedicated and knowledgeable in what she does. No matter what time I send her a panic e-mail, worried about classes or my job or life in general, she responds by the following morning. Her advice is always spot-on and helpful. Whenever I have concerns about my degree, future job opportunities or simply registration, she is always helpful. Whether her help is references to her or other students’ experiences, links to websites that specifically spell out what I need to do, or just assurance that what is happening is correct, her help is always the right kind for the right situation. She knows what she’s doing, and she’s doing a fantastic job.”
