Worst AP teacher I've ever had. If you don't write in her style, you'll get a bad grade. She acts like she is intelligent but she just fakes it all. Her mind is a stoner, her actions and weird mannerisms make me uncomfortable. She talks to you in a condescending manner. Debbie is a horrible teacher.
She's hard but fair.
She is the best teacher. She was my favorite teacher and she really taught her students important skills. She loves and is awesome at what she does. She is the best.
She is the best teacher I have ever had. She deeply cares about her students and truly prepares them for college.
Kids either hate VanGetson or love her, and I loved her. She's a little bit whack, but I think she's the best. She's a tough grader, but a regular class day is unbelievably easy. It's so easy to get her off track. She loves English so much and most of what she says is really interesting, even if it's a bit ridiculous.
Quite honestly my least favorite teacher I ever had. I'm not sure who these other people are who adore her, because I don't know anyone who likes her. She thinks she's ten times smarter than she actually is, and she's an awful writer with substandard teaching abilities. She spent the entire class period today talking about why she didn't like the "celebrity connotation" in Angelina Jolie's name. I dread her class.
Her teaching style and what she has to say is interesting, but she teaches you like a college class, and you're expected to keep up. She gives you a lot of opportunities and help to increase your grade, though.
Her grading is completely unstructured, and it often seems like shes completely making stuff up, or just making mountains out of molehills, but shes nice and has some interesting things to say.
Such a great teacher and really cares about every one of her students! AP senior english with her is AWESOME. She is so smart and your writing really improves based on her suggestions.
I didn't like her at first. But now I love her. SHe is such a good teacher. Discussions are great in her class. She helps with your writing so much. And she is so nice. Very understanding.
She is one of the best teacher I have had. She really knows her material and knows how to make literature fun and interesting. And she obviously wants the best for her us by letting us make revisions.
She is the greatest teacher ever. The amount of knowledge she has is almost frightening. i look forward to her class everyday.
Hard but we don't do alot in her class. At times I think she reads too much into literature but one of the nicest teachest none the less.
Such an amazing teacher. She's really passionate about english. She cares about her students and making sure we become better writers. AP Sr. English with her ROCKS!!!
Good compliment to the other English teachers I've had. Projects and written assigments were well thought out. Letting us revise for better grades was only helpful for our skills.
Hard but fair. Sometimes she can be too wishy washy but shes really a great teacher and loves students.
Knows what she's doing, and does it well! She loves literature and instills that love in her students. Also, she lets you rewrite any essay if you think you can do better. Great!
I love the way she makes students think deeply about literature
I like how she lets us correct our mistakes when we mess things up. She understands we aren't perfect and need some help!
I love literature, but she really challenges you to go further, but she always allows room for mistakes and will always help you out when you make one.
She is SO COOL! i love the way she helps you with everything. she's so smart and understanding. i love her!
Enthusiastic and caring, one of the best teachers I've had
I really like having her as a teacher...it's obvious she loves literature and her students. She also understands what it means to be a senior after AP tests :)
