Even though I have a B in her class, I can honestly say that she is one of the best English teachers I have ever had in my life. I will say she is pretty tough, but she is always willing to help you with an essay or test if you go and ask for her help. Overall, she is very helpful and I've learned so much this year, and it's only been one semester!
Wirtz has easily been one of the greatest influences in my high school career. I learned a ton during my sophomore year, and improved on my writing greatly. She was an amazing teacher to have. Due to her teaching, I feel prepared for starting college in the fall of 2012. She's enthusiastic and full of life. She knows what she's talking about. Participate and you will get the most out of her class like I did. Appreciate what she has to offer, and maybe even thank her! I sure wish I had!
There is no doubt that Mrs. Wirtz is a tough teacher, but frankly, I've learned more in her English class than any other year thus far. True, she can be bias at times and does tend to give better mark
Felt a strong dislike from her since day one. Don't know what I've done, but I consistently score lower than my friends while having done the same work. Very disappointed :(.
tests were easy for me, but unless you want to lose all of your personal opinions, you will struggle. essays are a nightmare. even as a "favorite" i didn't get any favoring on essays.
Even though her tests are literally impossible, she's a very smart woman and she has good intentions.
Her class is not a discussion class at all. She has her opinions and isn't very receptive to others. Looks down on her non-Honors classes. You don't learn to write or think for yourself in her class.
the best english teacher i have ever had. although she is fairly hard, and her quizzes seem impossible at times, she has a very fun class.
She is nice and a very good enthusiastic english teacher! I don't know why people don't seem to like her much.
Mrs. Wirtz was a great English teacher. She taught me what I know now and she inspired me to excell in her subject.
Possibly the worst teacher at LO in terms of her personal opinion, political opinion, and opinion on male/female equality (which doesn't exist in her class)!
Over all a good teacher, but really needs to get her facts straight on certian subjects we study. She also gets your mind active besides being biased.
She really is an excellent english teacher, if you give her a chance and participate you will learn alot and become a better writer. If you let her, she can really make the class enjoyable
She is honestly the BEST TEACHER, I have ever had and or come in contact with! She make's you THINK. She has passion, and compassion for her students... and her job! I think she is AMAZING.
I thought she was really nice, but I can see how some people don't like her.
I think she's a good teacher.The people dissing her need to respect her because yeah, she's strict but it will only make you a better writer and stronger in English. Mutual respect
Great teacher! She is very knowlegeable about her stuff. You will learn a lot if you listen and are not an obnoxious student.
She picked on students and never seemed like she even cared about her students. Made students feel uncomfortable when she talked (constantly) about her political beliefs
dude shes not that bad... shes okay... just deal with it... it'll make you a better person in the end. man up!
She's a great teacher and really wants to help the sudents, go to her if you have an issue.
Mrs. Wirtz is horibly bias and grades on her own thoughts rather than content. If you want the class to be easy play to her beliefs.
