She left more of an impression on me than any other teacher I had in my life. She taught me the power of satire and the beauty of American literature. She inspired and enlightened a ignorant farm boy, and I can never repay the benefit that her teachings gave me in life. Forever a trailblazer in my mind.

As a student in Ms. Starry's class,I've experienced confusion and frustration.When I ask her about an assignment,her answer is gibberish,so I have no way of knowing what to do and how to get a good grade.Also,her white board is bombarded with pictures of cheerleaders,leaving no room to write out assignments or their due dates.She'll spontaneously change due dates without officially notifing the class,so students will end up turning in assignments late. She doesn't even prepare us for tests.

not organized at all. not understanding of personal issues either. she talks to her aid pretty much the entire time. she gives low grades but won't tell you what you did wrong. most of her papers have coffee spill stains on them. overall not a great teacher.

Sat on her computer and if you weren't a cheerleader you were out of luck. On the first day she'll decide if she likes you or not, and then treat you either horribly or you'll pass with flying colors. extremely disorganized and i really didn't learn anything.

She would chose favorites in each class and she never gave back assignments, so you never knew what you got until you checked infinite campus.

Worst teacher of my high school career. She made me hate going to school. I'm shocked she still has a job. Very disorganized, rude, and work was pointless. I agree that her student aid does more work than her. If you weren't an athlete or cheerleader that class was hell. She needs to be fired.

Teacher is rude and condescending. Never available to talk- does not return emails or phone calls. Appears to be vague and has a disorganized classroom just by the kind of work my child brings home. Loses assignments frequently and then assigns a poor grade. For an honors class, this woman is a waste of taxpayer dollars and is wasting my child’s time. He learns nothing and is frustrated most of the time. The only grade below an A is this class.

Her work is very easy, it's just that she never really teaches anything. This class is mostly just busywork, and sometimes we make videos. She never grades anything until near the end of the quarter, and her student aides do more work than she does, it seems.

Is very disorganized and her classroom is a mess. She gets very distracted and doesn't really teach the class. She assigns big projects that are for her own entertainment and don't teach anything. She's a horrible teacher.

Was very unorganized when it came to teaching. Taught "at" students and expected them to know come time for tests. She is funny and a nice person at heart though, gives students chances for extra credit and to catch up. Would not recommend class to incoming students because of how difficult the class gets around 3rd quarter.

starry enjoys boys and cheerleaders, but other than that her class is a breeze because she doesn't concentrate on you, but her cheerleaders. if you want an easy A, this is for you.

Unless you are a cheerleader or football player you are nothing. She is also very inapproriate with her student teacher relationships. Gave a student her credit card before to go buy stuff... odd.

Spends half the class chating with her cheerleaders or football players who randomly come in. Assigns huge projects which she calls "fun" because they entertain her but you don't learn anything.

Worst teacher ever. When I was in the middle of giving an oral report to her, she just got up and started talking to someone (probably a cheerleader) who walked through the door.
