If you need more time on an assignment, she's generally understanding, but you have to ask and have a legitimate reason. My writing's improved, but not b/c of her teaching...great class, great person
Lovely woman - very motherly and understanding, yet also extremely intelligent and culture-loving! Your child will learn so much about the Humanities as a whole, with her.
one of the best teachers at PHS. she cared about all her students
EXCELLENT teacher, best i ever had. she does expect a lot out of people but if you cant get even get through her class dont bother going on to college. she also makes the class exciting.
She insists on memorizing worthless facts rather then trends and such. She also doesn't explain very well unless you ask her directly, which gets irritating when the assignment seems simple.
She is the best teacher at Poway! She takes a very long time to grade papers, though. She is funny, makes class enjoyable, very nice, and it is easy to confide in her. She's awesome!
I love her but she is a horrible teacher. She expects too much out of a normal class. Not very helpful either. She does not understand the life of a high schooler. She loves or hates your writing...
From reading the reviews i guess i got on her bad side, i hate her class and she expects too much out of her regular juniors, too much busy work that i cant stand, useless information that i wont need
She is AMAZING!! Brilliant, hilarious, fun - and a FANTASTIC teacher! She's also a wonderful person & very understanding. Only problem is she DOES take forever to give back work.
Coolest teacher in campus! She got me to like English class!;)
one of my fav. teachers! definately get on her good side, and yes, she takes FOREVER to grade! She is very good at connecting 1 on 1 w. students if u come to her. You'll either hate her or love her, but you will never forget her. very memorable!
She's really nice. If your one of her fave's then the class is a breeze
Although one of the slowest graders and had annoying pronucition(ren-ai-ssance!), she was friendly and an intersting teacher.
Get on her good side fast, and the class is a breeze. Work still needs to be done, but she's never strict in the classroom. Rarely available for help though.
Do (TYPE!) your notes! be enthusiastic about everything, and you'll be on her good side. and YES, she does take sides. she will often grade you on quantity ):
This course is not english it's history.When we DO write an essay we get it back 7 years later so we can't improve.Graeff is preety cool though!!! :)
great fun especially if humanities. maybe it was the course itself but it was not really like an english class ive ever had before.
Just a run of the mill teacher. Not an expert, but not a poor teacher either. Not a memorable experience.
Mrs. Graeff was always so funny... she's very cool. You be nice to her, people!
Lots of work: if you do it, you will learn a lot and be a better English student
