She was very structured and organized which I liked and she made everything real easy to learn. Her homework was more like arts and crafts which I found to be really fun! The crazy thing though is that she easily forgets her students cuz I went to visit the middle school and visited her while I was there about 2 years ago and she totally forgot who I was and she said she does that with all her students 😁😂

Very structured and organized and expects the same from her students & makes things very easy to learn. Her homework assignments were more like arts & crafts projects which I really hated & she was gone for like half the year when I had her

I was struggling in history last year and she put so much effort into boosting my grade up and really cares. She's such an amazing woman and anyone who has her will know how nice, helpful, yet strict and knowledgeable she is.

I don't know what, but she has this annoying tone and seems funny, at first, but overuses the same joke with this kid named, Nate. I mean, it's funny at first, but gets totally annoying after a while.

our class was so funny because she wouldn't ever yell at anyone and there was one kid she would always get annoyed with but wouldn't be mean to him
