Her class is super easy to ace, but she has a bad temper. She yells and makes orchestra really miserable. I used to love being in orchestra, but with her I hate it.

She has an extremely short temper and thinks she's so smart. If you make a grammatical error on your concert review she basically bumps it down an entire grade. She's really obnoxious and says the same thing over and over aga

The best thing to do, is not talk, not goof off, and not chew gum in class. Turn in all your practice records and the class will be an easy A/GPA booster. Cant really talk much in orchestra so its not really a social thing. s

Very funny, but a great teacher. Middle schoolers took it personally, as you get older, you won't take it personally. lol

I don't know what some of you guys are talking about. She might be strict, but if you just listen to her, she knows what she's talking. I have seen her yell at some people but it's not for anything unreasonable or undeserved.

I don't know what you guys see in Ms Crumb, but she's a great teacher. When has the orchestra ever felt unready for a competition? Every year I've played under her (5th year), the orchestra has always gotten superior ratings.

I feel bad for the FHS orchestra. To be able to learn and experience music in school should feel like an awesome priviledge. But its like this teacher goes out of her way to ruin that experience for her students. Unbelievable

Having her as a music teacher definitely takes some getting used to, but after a few years it was easy because shes pretty repetitive.

I agree that she has favoritism; she is mean and asking her a question is a wonderful opportunity for her to humiliate you.

You guys are so WRONG!!! She is a fabulous teacher, fair and kind. If you quite, it was cause you never liked playing your instrument to begin with.

I quit because I couldn't stand her teaching style. She embarrasses and humiliates instead of encouraging and inspiring people. She needs to retire.

WHAT ARE YOU PEOPLE TAKING ABOUT? Mrs. Crumb is a fanastic teacher. Probably the only one in this school that actually wants to teach us something.
