My favorite teacher at Howard...you learn a lot and she is fun.
At first, I thought she was really strict but she definitely lightens up as the year goes on. She TRULY wants to make sure we learned how to write before going to college and she spends a lot of time teaching how to write. She also taught me a lot of grammar which really helped me. Overall, she is an excellent teacher and even though we did a lot more work than some of my friends in other 12th grade classes, I'm really glad I had her.
I had Ms. Boussy for 11th and 12th grade...one of my favorite teachers...super nice & fun....learned a lot in her class...expect to read and do a lot of writing though
Ms. Boussy is a little intimidating at first because she knows everything about writing. I thought I was a good writer until I was in her class. She definitely helped me learn how to write. She is a good mix between fun and hard. I probably learned more from her than any of my other english teacher.
She teaches class like an AP class so if you take her, be ready to do a lot of work. Other than that, she is fair and does a lot of class discussion which is fun. There is a lot of homework though.
Class discussion are fun, and she doesn't assign hw over holidays which is cool.
She is really cool...love her! She will get really frustrated with you if you think you are going to do well in her class and not work. She took a lot of time after school to help me when I was confused about a paper she assigned. Also, she makes you read a lot but if you do the reading, you can get pretty good grades in her class.
I had Ms. Boussy last year for English 11 and again this year for English 12. Last year I learned a lot about grammar and writing. She gives a ton of quizzes and assigns reading almost daily for homework. The books we read last year were okay--had a lot of fun with the Great Gatsby unit. It's easy to get behind in her class because she moves quickly and expects you to learn it the first time around. Overall, I think she is one of the best teachers I've had.
If you don't like to read, don't take her class. She is extremely fair and doesn't give much homework except reading. She took a lot of time to help me with my college essay. She really cares about her students and wants them to learn...loved her class!
Ms. Boussy is so much fun. sarcastic and easily annoyed with kids who do nothing though. Don't expect to pass her class by bullsh#$%ing your way through because you will be fail! I hope I get Ms. B next year for Senior year
LOVE her!!!! super nice and great teaching style.
Ms B is way cool! Her class is hard and she can be boring but you definitely feel prepared for college writing at end of year.
She is hard, but you actually learns something in her class. Very helpful.
She demands a lot from you and doesn't let you get away with murder like other teachers. I learned so much from her. One of my favorite teachers at Howard!
Her courses, even the grade level ones, have a lot of work, but she's not an unreasonable grader. Do the work, and you'll be fine. She's not one of those who tries to be sneaky on exams either.
If you don't take her courses seriously, she won't take you seriously. She doesn't look for reasons to fail you, but she will not hesitate to.
Went through all my stuff just for it to be organized for her and I couldn't find anything after she did it and she threw papers out I needed.
i LOVE Mrs. Boussy she is the best teacher i have ever had ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!not
Not a good teacher. Tried to fail me in English 12 for no good reason. Has impossibly high standards and shows favoritism. Avoid at all costs. This teacher has tenure, unfortunately.
the worst teacher I ever had I learned nothing in her class and she helped me with nothing i was a good student in her class and I could still see she was an unfair teacher, never to me but to others
cant stand her she hasnt helped me once though out my whole 2004-2004 school year and if i get her next yeat im swaping teachers HATE the class
She is so totally awesome!! I don't know what I would do without her!
Hated her class back when I had her. I was bored to sleep. She was confusing and unclear. Plus, she was belligerent when I missed class AND had a drs. note.
Nice--very helpful. She gives a lot of homework but class is fun because all the discussions.
she's great, takes time to help if you put forth the effort
