Took AP lang with her, and it was a great experience. The class discussions were very enlightening, and fun. Also, she teaches writing well, and will prepare you for the AP exam. Almost nobody from her class fails it.
Homework wise, there very little-even less than CP classes. The essays were graded promptly and fairly. The rumor that you write one once a week is completely false. More like once a month.
Basically, take AP lang if you can. The teachers are excellent.

Mrs. King was an amazing Health teacher. She really cares about her students. Health is really easy with her. She is one of my favorites at Uni. She is patient, approachable, and kind. She is so sweet and cares about all her students!!! 10/10.

Really nice and funny - calls kids sweetie and is always joking around in this dry, quirky way - love her as a person. Teaching is lacking. Seems like she doesn't enjoy reading classics; even if it's not a lit class, an English teacher should still appreciate classic literature, esp. if she's assigning it for the course. If your essay does not match her interpretation, doesn't matter how good it is, you're getting a bad score. :( Tests are easy if you're good at quotes and memorization. :)

I was extremely disappointed with the overall experience I received while in her AP Lang class. Her teaching strategies have much left to be desired, and is extremely militant about literary interpretation. If your interpretation of the text does not match her own perfectly, expect a drastically low grade for essays. I suppose I was most upset at how little I gained from her class; I am angry at how she claims to grade one way but doesn't follow through. She is very approachable, though useless.

Never have I encounter a teacher so stupid and dumb. Sure her class is rather useless and you dont even do anything, but her class isn't an easy A. If you disagree with her on an essay, youre screwed. She doesn't know what Australia looks like....

Mrs. King is one of the best and funniest teachers in the English department. She is very fashionable, sometimes has a dirty sense of humor, but is also a very good teacher. She doesn't give busy work. She's not super strict about tardies. She's definitely a teacher you want to have before you graduate.

She is very assuming at times. She assumes that we are all immature, naive and ignorant of the world. Perhaps some people are, but she shouldn't generalize an entire age group. It is limiting.

She's funny and nice but she fails to accurately teach the material; she oversimplifies things and is very militant about how she wants essays structured. At first I enjoyed her class but by the end of the school year I was desperate to get out; she's a nice person but not a great teacher.
