I had her back in '91. She was a terrific teacher of writing, and I owe a lot to her. She was very difficult, but for the right reasons.

She's not only my grandmother but a wonderful woman in and outside of teaching. She has helped me with my writing in many ways, & now my work is being published

I only wish she was still teaching so my sister could get her. She may have been ridiculously hard but you LEARNED to write... no choice in the matter

I loved Mrs. Neilson...I am now attending UCSB and I still carry on a lot of what she taught me my junior year of high school. One of the best at STHS

An excellent teacher, and a great person. Not satisfied with your grade? Mrs. Neilson wasn't satisfied with your work. Shame about her retirement.

She's a tough teacher, but you come out of her English class being 100 times better at writing than you were when you walked in.
