Ok, so it's been awhile, but I had Mrs. Benton as a teacher in 1988 and 1989. I'm an English teacher now, and it's largely because of her. She was a hugely inspirational teacher and I thank her 4 it.

She does have her favorites but she's great because she pushes you to think philosophically and differently then what you might have before. She has a strong moral sense on right and wrong which may not help some kids.

She was a very sarcastic woman and clearly picked her favorites in the class. Don't get on her bad side.

Dr. Benton is absolutely and purely kind, and her super-vibrant enthusiasm and open-endedness makes everyone look forward to her classes. Always there for help or general advice!

I love Ms. B. The class was a lot of fun (except when we read Invisible Man), and I had a great group of people in my class. I wish assignments were clearer, but that's about it.

She changes her mind all the time!! She'll teach us one thing, then the next say it's totally different. She just can't get the lessons across at all. She's trying though.

The class was easy, yeah, but come on, we read some great stuff, and the discussions were great. She is clearly well-versed in literature, and is a great woman.

Rather flakey. Also, has a serious agenda and pushes it on all her students...Doesn't understand that "free thought" includes what she doesn't like, too

She doesn't help me improve my writing, and is very vague about assignments. But gives awesome grades and is a wonderful person.

AP English with Benton was the simplest AP class I took in High School. She's not tough with grades, but she's a wonderful person.

You can look at things one of two ways - either she's a great teacher or a terrible one; either way, she's one of the best I've ever had, though I learned zip.
