I was one of her favorites and believe me saying this- she definitely sticks with her favorites. I had her for 4 years and at the end, I got so sick of her classes because she is only nice to certain people and can be unfair. She makes unfair judgments about people, and a lot of times, complains about students in front of other students, which is a highly inappropriate behavior that a teacher can do. If you do get her, try to be her favorites because if you don't, your life will get difficult

She is a super talented musician. She knows what she is talking about. Her main goal is to help you get better at your instrument. Sometimes, the way she does that is by being honest with you. It may seem harsh but it really helps in the end. Also, she is a genuinely funny person. She doesn't care if you are a talented musician. All she cares about is you putting in hard work and the effort to get better.

Carolyn is one of the nicest and funniest conductors that I've ever met. People often say that she sucks or her classes are useless. That is not true. In concert band, she often yells at people and they get very angry about it. But the thing is, they never practice or get ready for band (they are always late to classes and sometimes they don't even have pencils to write with) even though she repeatedly asks them to do so. If you follow what she says, seek for help, and practice, you'll have fun.

One of the best teachers I have ever had. Although she has an unusual personality, she rocks... She pursues BHS's motto: Be responsible and free.

She's intense! But, she can be really cool if you get to know her. I worked really hard in her class and was impressed when I was told I earned an A-, but saw on my report card that I received an A :)

shes a good teacher, very fun and lax about somethings, but then really adamant about others, she also gets really mad out of nowhere. like, someone will be late for something and theyre the first or only one to b late and she yells at them sortov but laughs it off. but if you happen to be one of a few who are late or just the 2nd one to come in, just catch her in a bad mood or moment she spazzes and emarrasses you in front of everyone. She is her own biggest fan but be real with her and she will love you

Hilarious. Concert band: do the recording assignments, come on time. You'll get an A- if you can get B's or up on your recording assignments, B if you get C's.
