Very insightful teacher. She is very knowledgeable, and represents 98% of all the knowledge in the Whitney High School English department.

Mrs. Hall is a very interesting teacher. I've had her for two years and under her my writing and ability to analyze got a lot better. She seems to go off on tangents a lot but somehow she manages to greatly help you. I dont know how she does it, but a overall a great teacher and person.

Easily the best teacher I've ever had at Whitney. She's funny, brilliant, *cough*beautiful*cough*, and my writing has improved immeasurably thanks to her. This is one lady who knows what she's doing.

There is more to life than just the individual subject at hand. While she definitely can go off on tangents, it is typically at the egging on of students. Choosing to distract her in order to waste

Probably the best teacher in Whitney at digressing in her lectures, but her demeanor and her open talking definitely separates herself from other teachers. English is not exactly the easiest subject to teach, but she seems to have a good grasp on it and knows what shes doing. Interesting teacher to have and definitely one of the better English teachers at Whitney.

if you ask her about flowers, she'll talk for an hour about it. by the end of the conversation, you'll be talking about nuclear explosions. in other words, she gets off topic EASILY. and if you bs the homework, she barely notices.

I like her class, but wow, she grades essays hard. Received a B the entire first semester with one bad essay.

I think Hall has been one of the best English teachers I've had. Although I admit that my writing did not improve much (I've always been a decent writer), my reading skills improved immensly. Hall helped me realize just how awesome literature is, and how many-fauceted a work can be. She does tell a lot of her life stories, but I personally find them interesting and in a way, it's her form of passing on advice to her students. She also does not berate her students and talks to them like they're adults.

Well, what can I say about Hall. First of all, she doesn't teach at all! How does she expect us to improve in that class? Second, we get to hear her wonderful life stories. TFS! Lastly, she thinks she knows everything, but all she knows is bs like astrologoy, random stuff, and alien things. Me learn how to talk English good so many on that class!

She can go on the wildest tangents and then rush to finish the original lecture, but it's not always bad. She's quirky but good natured and a nice teacher.
