She's a super nice teacher and she truly tries to teach. She seems a little out of touch with kids and is awfully slow at everything but no homework. Her makeup could use a little help though..

Sweet, but scary and completely psycho. When I got my schedule I almost fainted. She's reallllllllyyyyy scary. She's scared of sunlight, likes her room really cold, is allergic to newspaper ink, and thinks she sees signs of her dead husband everywhere. I think she fell in love with Shakespeare at one point. Try to get a schedule change if you get her. She has no patience or tolerance.

I loved her class. I had her for both my sophomore and senior years at Rio, and she was nice and very easy. Furthermore she is not crazy (just a little over zealous in her love of Shakespeare) and she does not talk to her dead husband. She can get boring as she tends to repeats things she's talked about when going over books a lot, but it helps, because everything she says is on the test. She also never gave my classes homework, other than essays, which always we’re easy topics to write of of.

She has probably been my best english teacher. Harknett is always able to help. There is a lot of ec. Hopefully I will see her senior year.

A bit cranky at times, but she's actually a really good teacher if your willing to PAY ATTENTION in class. Seriously, too many goof offs in her class is what makes it a bad exp.

She is pretty easy teacher if you really think about her class. What homework does she give besides grammar? It is easy going. She might not be cool, but she is not a bad teacher.

Mrs. Harknett never explains stuff. She treats us like 1st graders, though she does have good grammar.

People who don't know when to behave should steer clear of this teacher, everyone else who wants to learn should take Harknett.

She gets true enjoyment of failing her senior students. She once told me to SHUT UP! I hope to all other incoming students that you don't get her, she will end up consuming your soul. She must be stopped!!!! NOW!!!
