She requires wayy too much work for just an english class. Gives low grades if she doesnt like you. She's a bad teacher and her presence is not nice to be around. Also her tests are so unfair she makes you know who said specific quotes in a book, and thats so ridicoulous!

If you have a serious passion for English, Rothman is a good teacher for you. She makes you read books like Grendel and Macbeth, old stuff. She doesn't believe in perfect writing and she's old fashioned. Everyone talked during class. IDK if she knew.

Worst English teacher possible. She cannot teach at all. Also, she likes mumbling to herself and trailing off in her sentences as if the class can hear her. It also feels like she's in menopause or something; she has the worst mood swings (not like she's ever that pleasant to be around anyways). Her work is not that hard but is sooo boring. She likes to think she knows what she is talking about but no one can really take her seriously.

I had her for english honors and she's pretty much a joke in terms of grades. You don't need to read the books you can just bs the essays and still get 90s. She does give a lot of extra credit and usually gives quizzes for acts in a book which can be sparknoted b4 hand and still get a good grade. You can sleep in her class, just open a book up and put your head behind it and she won't care. She is very smart but her handwriting is impossible to read. SHe is very nice but cannot control the class

She's a very nice and polite teacher. Very lenient with grades, and though she doesn't like everyone talking, doesn't do much about it. Deadlines are usually flexible if you ask her. She needs to learn to have better control over her class. I have her for Honors English.

It is true she cannot control the class. It's sad, and all the kids make fun of her. All we really did was group work. When answering a question, you have to be very specific to what SHE thinks is the right answer, even if it is an opinion question. Also really hates trash.

She is a nice teacher but kids always make fun of her. ALL YOU WILL EVER DO IN HER CLASS IS GROUP WORK!! she just assigns something in groups and you can slack off. noone takes her seriously. she gives hard tests though so cramp for the tests like vocabulary and the book tests. she assigns an individual asigment where you have to do work like once a month. she also has mood swings.

Her mood swings are unpredictable! She's laughing one moment (at her own joke) and the next she's screaming. I don't think she helps a lot in helping me understand the books' meanings or anything either. She can't seem to control the class and her class is really boring. Very easy grader though.

By far the best mentor I have had during my high school years. She brought the art of teaching to levels others only strived for. To this day, her constant motivation and dedication is unparalled. :)

Takes school rules 2 seriously. She's more of the teacher that doesn't care about your good qualities instead goes after you for your bad ones.
