Aug 26, 2014 I had her for Lit and Phil, awesome class! (Never had to write an essay for this class) Also had her for AP Lang , she is willing to really help you improve your writing skills. She is easy to talk to and is sort of a grandma figure. Take her class!! Flag Rating

Jun 03, 2014 Had her for 10th English H. One of the best English teachers I've ever had. I liked her a LOT better than Ms.Galang. Her tests and quizzes are a lot more reasonable (both time wise and content wise) Very caring and gives great reviews/explanations! Flag Rating

May 19, 2013 I had her for literature philosophy. She lectures somewhat slowly and repeats herself from time to time, which makes her easy to understand, but boring. It can be hard to stay awake in her class, and there are always 1-2 people sleeping, but she almost never calls anyone out for sleeping (I don't know if she is being nice or just doesn't notice). Little homework, just reading. Easy B, slightly harder A, because her quizzes and tests can be tricky. Flag Rating

May 30, 2012 Ms.Innis is pretty nice , she's willing to help if you need it. She explains the concepts pretty well and she repeats herself several times. That way you really can't forget it. The only bad thing is that you might be in a room with 25 other sleepy kids. Most students get pretty sleepy by the end of 19,20. Homework is based on completion. She gives out pop quizs but they are easy as long as you read the stuff she assigns. MC questions can be tricky though, but the essay questions are really easy Flag Rating

May 25, 2012 Kind of hard for an A, but she' nice. I think she speaks in a monotonous voice which contributes to students sleeping in her class, but she doesn't really care. The stuffy room and talking about philosophy doesn't exactly help you stay awake either. Flag Rating

Dec 18, 2011 I love Ms.Innis! I had her for 10th gr Eng 2. She likes have us talk in small groups and discuss. She is very nice but sometimes she can have a bit of an attitude. Very easy B if you do homework and do alright on the test. If you participate often that can help get you an A (participation is 5% of y Flag Rating

Dec 05, 2011 Great teacher. Really nice, but you have to do your work and try really hard fir an A. Very reasonable about grading, but you gotta show up to those classes 'cause participation counts! Overall, what I would call a teacher who knows what she's doing. Flag Rating

Dec 03, 2011 Innis is a tough grader and she is not one to argue over whether it could be right when she thinks it is wrong. Just speak up in class to get good participation and do all your work then you will achieve a B, if you actually try hard then you will get an A.
She is a good teacher. She tries to help

Mar 05, 2011 I absolutely adore having Ms. Innis for her AP English Language class. She is a very kind and helpful person. She is willing to help her students improve their writing in order for them to be granted a 5 on the AP Exam. Her curriculum revolves around the topic of rhetoric, which is explained thoroug Flag Rating

Jan 10, 2009 Pretty straightfoward teacher concerning workload.. you just have to know the material and answer questions.. she's also really nice and DOES have a sense of humor. Last day of semester she talked about random things that teachers do and it was pretty funny. Easy B, you don't have to work too hard, Flag Rating

Jan 09, 2009 Ms. Innis is the best. She's sweet and funny and is actually aware of what goes on around school and her students. If you really talk to her, you won't regret it. The work load wasn't too bad, and you go over everything in class. Her tests are a little tricky, especially the True or False. Flag Rating

Jul 25, 2008 10th grade English, F'05. She had us memorize and perform a monologue from Othello. (Loved that.) I liked the books we read, but I didn't like the way she taught them. Watch out for the T/F questions -- they're tricky. Flag Rating

Jun 11, 2008 a pretty nice teacher, pretty easy. she gives a LOT of partial credit for short answer questions, but her multiple choice & true false questions are kind of ridiculous. you don't learn a lot in her class, i found myself slacking off because she was so easy. Flag Rating

Jun 11, 2008 She was honestly one of the nicest teachers I had. Most people in my class either had a B+/A-. Her lectures aren't necessarily exiting, but they weren't boring either. We didnt have that many essys and only had 8-10 HW assignments each quarter. Her tests are usually not easy nor hard. Flag Rating

Jun 08, 2008 shes really nice. very sweet. pretty easy to get a B but just work at that A and you'll probably get it. Just those true/false questions on the tests get to you Flag Rating

Jun 06, 2007 Ms. Innis is one of the NICEST teachers I've EVER had. =] She's pretty clear about what you need to do and everything, so you don't get confused in her class, that often at least. =] Her tests aren't that hard, just study and keep up with the class. Her grading's primarily just work, participation helps with citizenship, I'm guessing. Good class if you like a laid back teacher, bad class if you can't pay attention during in class discussions.

Jun 04, 2007 she is an easy teacher but i didn't like her true or false test questions. overall working in groups was fun mostly because you dont' really talk about the book but about other class non-affliated things. she is definitly not the best english teacher but in a way she is reasonable.

Apr 12, 2007 yep, she accused me of cheating on a hw assignment (told me that I copied off the overhead when we went over it in class). She only refunded my points because she was in a hurry to go and didn't want to argue her point, which actually had no evidence to it anyway... Flag Rating
