I took her Journalism class & she was also in charge of the Spartan Banner & I have to say when I heard she was moving, I was so sad. She was a teacher that pushed me both academically & editorially to dig deep into my writing. She didn't judge any opinions in class & she even wrote on one of my papers to ask if she could use in the newspaper as well. I've been a part of the newspaper since my freshman year & I was a junior when I had her as a teacher. Very nice, understanding, & miss her! :)
Her classes are a complete joke and she takes forever to return an assignment how can you take 8 weeks to return a writing assignment. Honestly the most annoying person in the school.
She is a very nice person. If you do something wrong in her class she doesn't yell at you like most teachers do she just reacts very calmly and says we don't do that and doesn't give you dention or anything like that.
She's a very sweet, caring teacher. One of the few out there - She is passionate about English and about her students.
She just doesn't know how to teach. Her students know the concepts better than she does. She went 12 straight weeks without grading a single assignment.
Ms. Barber is a really good person, and you learn a lot in her class. She really makes you think about the class and how it affects the world around you. She's awesome!
A wonderful teacher and understanding person. I would highly recommend her.
I think Ms. Barber is great! I don't know why other people complained about her. They are probably people who expect high grades when they don't do any work. One of my favorite teachers at East!
She's amazing!!!! we made a video for ms. kossoris today and she was so nice. her laugh is so funny too. She's the type of teacher you'd want to have in high school b/c she's so understanding. ~tsl~
I thought she was so great and now I realize... she's really unreliable and doesn't follow through on anything. The projects put me back in elementary school and I honestly learned nothing in her classes. Nice person, but disorganized and obnoxious.
Not personable at all; no eye contact. Told ME that my child's semester B could have been an A if he would have brought in a box of kleenex for extra credit. Unbelieveable!!!
Kinda loud, but in a fun way. She tends to get off-topic a bit in class, but we always learn and have lots of time to do projects.
She's too cheerful most of the time. Always laughing...really load. Also, she can easily be persuded.
English 10A is awesome with Mrs. Barber, although it's pretty slow. The class is the one I look froward to during the day.
You are great Ms. Barber!!! You have a way of connecting with your students and we love you!
Barber's class is prbly my fav hour during the day, i look forward to Am Lit... may not like the books, but Miss Barber's the coolest!
Ms. Barber goes out of her way to help her students. You can tell she really cares about us. We need more teachers like that!
I love her! She is the best teacher I've ever had and can relate to her students. Even though she gets off topic she is an excellent teacher!!!!
She is great. Actually likes to teach!!! This is one class out of my day where i actually don't mind going to class. Group discussions are also a lot of fun!
