Reference/ recommendation for Deresa Claybrook
As someone who has had the opportunity to work with Deresa Claybrook as a mentor, I can definitely say that I benefited from our relationship. Deresa approaches her role with a positive“can-do” attitude that is infectious. While she is full of energy and heart, Deresa is also direct and no-nonsense. Where I saw roadblocks, she saw possibilities. When I felt doubtful, she conveyed certainty. Deresa was generous in sharing everything from practical knowledge to article excerpts. Her ideas regarding my path forward were based on her broad knowledge of the field and yet individually tailored for me. I am grateful to Deresa for her investment in me; I was able to borrow from her confidence to tap into my own. And when done well, I believe mentoring gives both ways.

Took her online class and everything she needed you to do was very clear and easy to do. As long as you complete the weekly assignments on their due dates you'd be guaranteed a good grade. The requirements for an A was at a 93/100 since her class is that easy and open book. My advice for anyone taking her online class is to keep up with due dates!
