Forced interactions and invasive to property sometimes. Poetry making up the bulk of the lessons instead of something related to the class itself(Literally over 75% of the class is poetry based, in a World Literature class). The literature of other countries almost never discussed about, except how related to poetry it is. Lessons comprise of responces to her videos, poems, or whatnot she assigns(Still not related to the class at all). Any student that really cares about academics will not enjoy

She's my favorite teacher this year. She made English really fun and whenever she compliments you, it just makes you feel really good. Her compliments are like gold. One smiley face or a check on your essay will turn your day around! She has a very high taste and expectations of her students. She's a very sweet soul and is a doll. She's my favorite English teacher yet. :) We do a lot more in comparison to Tarr's, but her class is never boring. She also loves poetry and encourages it.

Great & fun teacher. It's weird how I always get top grades for essays when I don't think I write very well (: Makes me happy though :D Had her for EngH, she's great. Didn't like journals, though.
