Oct 02, 2008 Retz isn't a little intimidating at first; she's very intimidating. But once she takes the time to get to know you (or vice versa) she's probably the best and most helpful teacher you'll eve have. :) Flag Rating

May 31, 2006 All the good posts are from by the choir freaks, who idolize her. For the other kids who were unlucky enough to take a music class, she is a very annoying teacher who chooses favorites. She takes music way too seriously. Flag Rating
