She truly has a passion for English and that shows in her excitement for teaching.
Barb Lachman is my favorite teacher in the planet. She has a great enthusiasm for the content she is teaching and she understands teens. She rox.
She was very fair and brought a certain sparkle to learning English. Sometimes asking for clarity was necessary (that might have been just me though). She used the Spring Board book, but not so much that is was overkill. She judges on first impressions and she did not like me at all, but her personal opinion of me never affected my grades (I don't think). Overall, I really respected her and the only thing I would change about her if I could would be for her to like me. (Outside of class-cordial)
She was a hard grader but its honors so she was in the right. Really into english and I loved her energy she brought to class
She's a good teacher, but she makes it really obvious that she would rather be teaching drama full time instead of helping us improve in English.
My least favorite teacher, only favored the kids who took drama and had next tom impossible exams. she was pretty enthusiastic and I learned things in her class but she still Degraded my appreciation of the English language.
She seems to favor the kids in drama...she was there to help you though if you needed to catch up or raise your grade. If you're in honors she's pretty strict and hard, but I survived. Barely.
yeahhhh...if she doesn't like you she will lower your grade! not kidding! but she was a cool person outside of the class
one of my favorite teachers. i do agree she can be a bit biased at times... but i did learn a lot from her, and she's very entertaining.
Didn't like her when I had her, but now (1 year later) I'm glad I took her class. She does a great job preparing you, and focuses on parts of writing you will use in the future.
She is fantastic! She is the best English teacher I have ever had.
She is a great teacher. shes funny and she relates well to the students. the only thing is when shes casting a play, she has a preference for actors she likes
I do NOT like her. or mr crouch. everything is boring and takes forever. way too many notes and pointless assignments.
SHES FREAKIN AWESOME i didnt find her that hard but then again i got a B so maybe i wasnt really trying. just be careful around the time of a new play :P
I know her VERY well. Sometimes she can be so weird and mean, but other times she is really funny. I also don't really like how she thinks she is God.
Her class is REALLY hard.she doesnt seem to want to know her students very well but she just gets so excited about everything so thats good
She's a tough grader, but what do you expect? She teaches honors! She's very nice, excited about teaching, and teaches in a fun way.
As a serious drama student and friend of Barb, I am biased. Regardless, she is a visionary teacher, willing to take risks, and is dedicated to her students.
