okay! mrs.blackwood. LOL shes hillarious. I love her but at the same time she didnt teach ANYTHING. she gave a roots packet and that was the only homeowork we had to do in a week. but she was really funny. she always picked on other kids which was hillarous and then she had favorites she barly talked to. This was the funniest class ever. I dont understand how she talkes because of her extreemly heavy accent. but shes still extreemly funny.

Mrs. Blackwood is a great teacher, but only if you take the time and effort to create a relationship with her. Don't slack off, participate, and she will appreciate you.

Mrs. Blackwood may have a bad temper, but she really does mean well. It is nice that she outlines the homework and activities in a schedule. The problem is that she can't maintain control of her class. Please, be nice to her, fellow students.
