I had Miss Burnett in freshman year and I hated her! But really only because she hated me, and all of the other kids in the class. She was really mean to everyone and just seemed like she wasn't enjoying being a teacher. She was also just kind of weird and nonsensical at times. She was obviously very enthusiastic about English but she really wasn't able to make me feel the same way.😕

Honestly Ms.Burnet used to be OK, and I understand how people used to feel about her but this year she's very different! She is much nicer and seems happier and she is very forgiving. She is SO knowledgeable on the content she teaches and she answers questions very clearly. She really knows her stuff and is very helpful if you ask her for help. She only seems to dislike kids who don't care at all and don't try at their work but who wouldn't??

She's a really good english teacher. You can really tell that she's really into what she teaches. She has her ups and downs throughout the day, but thats because the kids in my class are lazy.. if you put in the effort, you'll get an A. Only problem is that her grading can be a bit iffy sometimes. But she's a very smart teacher who enjoys to discuss during our class.

Ms Burnet is the worst English teacher I've ever had. She refuses to adapt to make anything easier on the students' end, constantly underestimates the intelligence of her honors class, and makes a subject I usually enjoy my most dreaded class of the day. Her inflexibility makes her class boring and frustrating. She is constantly shooting down the ideas of students when they do not align with hers, nitpick a everything you write for errors, and refuses to listen to input.

Wow. I've had her for a total of 4 weeks now. I normally have at least a 97% in English and now because of her she is saying I should be laid off of work to do her entire second semester class again. She nitpicks every thing and I can't fathom the fact that I have a 30% in her class now. She needs to lay off on her kids and people might actually like her. If you like teachers that blabber on about how all of her students are disrespectful,look no further. Thank you Ms. Burnet I hate english now.

she's actually really nice if you behave in her class. stop acting so obnoxious towards her and you'll have nothing to complain about

She is a good teacher but most people are too lazy to put in the work. Her class is the first English class ive learned anything in for years. Just be respectful and ask for help outside of class.

Anybody who has the inside scoop transfers out of her class as quickly as possible, making room for a new batch of "victims."

She's a stickler, and some of the stuff doesn't even make sense. She turns kids off from English, which is too bad because it used to be my favorite subject.
