Everyone should take a class with Ms. Anderton! She is so smart, explains concepts so clearly, and is just a really nice person. Office hours and J-blocks are really, really helpful, and I did considerably better on essays when I met with her outside of class to talk about them. Homework readings were completely manageable. If you love to read good books and discuss them, take her AP Lit class!

Ms Anderton is just simply amazing and I am so sad I can't have her again next year. I may take AP English just to be with her, but I'm not smart sooo... hahaha but she's just so helpful, smiley, GORGEOUS, and the nicest, most caring human being.

I currently have Ms. Anderton. Let me start off by saying that she is super pretty. She made sure to reply to my emails and send me all of the work that i missed when i was sick. She is super nice and gives you just the right amount of work. It is obvious that she loves what she does and she is good at it. She also sometimes jokes with us and tells us stories about herself, which makes her very relateable and easy to talk too when it comes to missing work, because she understands. She is GREAT!!

Ms. Andeton is a great teacher! A hard class but she will prepare you well and help you out when your having trouble. Basically she gives you all you need, and its up for you to decide if you do well or not.

Cutest teacher ever. I had her a Sophomore Honors and she is so nice and sweet and she really wants you to succeed. Yes, there is a lot of work in her class, but it is fun work (minus all of the grammer stuff) and totally worth it. Try to take her class. Also, she really prepares you for Junior Honors, especially if you have Jampol (take his class if you can as well- the two courses compliment each other really well).

She was one of the best teachers I've ever had, she's a tough grader which I think is a good thing, she makes you work, but you have a good time doing it

Nice, very experienced. Hard and very much into overanalyzation, but at the end of the day she's a good English teacher. Not the best I've had, but made it enjoyable.

She has high standards for her students but only becuase she believes in them. Over all a very good teacher who is truly interested in her students success.

Ms. Anderton gives a lot of work, but she is a good teacher. Sometimes a harsh grader and she checks the internet for every paper for plagerism.
