Mrs. Drake was my Senior English teacher in 2000. Yes, this review is quite old, so consider how 'traumatic' my experience. I was poor in HS with limited funds for college, which meant maintaining good grades was key to getting into university. Mrs. Drake graded an essay returned it to me. A couple days later she asked for my paper stating she never received it. I could not find it and she gave me an F. I finally found the paper in our trash with an A-. The principal had to talk to her.
Ms. Drake taught me how to write incredibly well. More importantly, she showed me how to enjoy school and how to excel in school. Her teachings have helped me to succeed in college and now law school.
She's a very tough grader but she teaches you what you need to know. During the year i felt like i didn't learn much but that now in college i can see that her class helped me write so much better.
She is a tough grader, she is willing to help you but her personality is 2-faced & i didnt learn anything all year! She thought that she was the best teacher ever and shes NOT!
She is a good teacher, I guess, but she grades too hard and she lives in her own little perfect world (no swearing, etc). It gets annoying. Not all of us can visit Europe, either!
I love Mrs. Drake. She is the most amazing teacher and her class has helped me immensly in college. Any student considering taking AP Lit. don't hesitate.
This was my only D in high school, but I learned SO MUCH for college! Niccolini's class may be fun, but you need to learn your stuff, and Drake gets it in you!
Wonderful teacher! Mrs. Drake is very helpful, and I have leanred a lot this year. Wonderful, wonderful!
Mrs. Drake's willingness to call her students by their nicknames is very funny.
She's the best! She's an inspiration and such an interesting person to talk to. I'll miss you next year mrs. D~!
Overall a very good teacher. Dont forget to do your works cited and cite all sources!! Through the year she is very good but your senior exit project is tough
I really liked that she took time to talk to her students as individuals. She really seemed to care about each one of us and what we took away from her class.
A pretty good teacher just gives a lot of homework and if you get her don't fall behind, you wont come back!
She was the best English teacher I ever had!!! thanks sooo much
