Mrs. Durham is one of the most interesting teachers I've ever met. Even though there have been cases when she can be a little grumpy during band, she is truly a kind person. I remember when she helped me with intervals and I didn't expect that since she didn't teach my class. But, I truly respect her hard work at Stevenson and being an assistant director isn't easy! I will definitely miss her and her lovely personality!
She is a great educator and an even greater person to be around.
IMO, Overall she's bad. She's very close minded when it comes to just about everything. Although she has the basic knowledge of music down, try not to soak in what she saids. Pretty awful teacher too.

I say ditto to that
Hilarious. And funny stories to be told. If she yells at you it's probably because you did do something wrong.
She may seem very mean and strict, but she is actually very nice. She wants to keep the rules, so she may seem strict in public, but if you need help or get to talk to her, you will realize that she is a very nice person. Although she repeats her band stories a bit too many times, she has a good sense of humor and is understanding as long as you aren't causing too much trouble. I cause a lot of trouble, but I like her and she cares for me as her student just as much as anyone else.
She has an attitude, but is mostly nice and really cares about her students' grades.
She's always telling us the same stories, is always talking about her band, and if you're confused she'll give you a mean look and give you attitude. She also thinks that she knows all and is better than everyone else.
Seems really mean but if you listen and don't get on her bad side she can be a pretty good teacher
just keep telling her how great she is - you'll be fine!
If you listen and are attentive, she will be your best friend! shes the reason i stayed in band! Get yo know her, show some interest in music, youll have fun in her class!
she is really nice and... she socializes with u unlike most teachers and cares about u as a person. she is a nice lady, but have not had her for band
very strict if u get on her bad side but if she likes u then class is very fun-she can be very sarcastic and hav great stories
A great musician and a kind person. She often got sidetracked in class with stories, but we still got a lot done. Strict with talkers, but still a joy.
Ahh!!!! I love Mrs. Durham!!!! She's sooo friendly and you can basically talk to her about anything. She's great! She's AWESOME!!!
Great teacher, great person. Tells amazing stories and is incredibly friendly and genuine.
Next to Slepak, she's the best teacher ever. Just wants to help. Wants to be your friend. Great sense of humor. Good people skills. Ms. D's the best!!!
not very understanding. annoys me how she says "you have lost the right to talk" when she is on the podium. grr
Yeah she didn't like me, she yelled at me for looking at my friend once
Mrs. D would do anything for her kids to help them out - we could call her at 1 AM and shed explain counterpoint to us. GO MRS.D
Wow! You must be an amazing person to work alongside Slepak! Kudos to you!
rough on oustside, compassionate if you know her. excellent musician and teacher.
