I miss her, too. The best was when she let us do the poetry slam. I wish we did that more often. And to the rest of you complainers...stop whining! It was an HONORS class! Of course it's going to be hard!
I miss Mrs. Vander Burgh! She's such a wonderful person! Great teacher too!
Wow. Drama on this board. I learned so much from Mrs. Vander Burgh. That is what this should be about.
I had her last year and had a class with some young men who felt she graded them harder. I just did not see it. It would be too much work to grade an essay keeping in mind the gender of the writer. 40 slides on feminisim? I recall about 8.She was fine
How is she a feminist because you write poorly? I also like that you use feminist as a negative.
She's not cool, she could be clearer in class, but she's still a great teacher. She teaches writting pretty well, but she should use the lay-reader much less.
This is a hard class, but if you keep at it, you'll get it.
She will go out of her way to help if you approach her in the right manner. Don't be a jerk, and you will succeed. She has high expectations and will help.
I loved the holiday lesson! She seems to know a lot and help out a lot.
