Nov 17, 2011 Why is everyone still rating her? She retired like 5 years ago or somewhere around that time, those comments from the last couple years can't be for her. Flag Rating

Aug 18, 2007 Very unpredictable in her personality-tough broad. She really likes teaching AP and can seem over-the-top, but as long as you do things her way you'll do fine in her class. The discussions in class are very good. and she loves grammar. Flag Rating

Apr 21, 2007 I think she was a hard teacher, but a good one. In the end I think she cared and really didn't settle for less than your best. Flag Rating

Jan 20, 2007 Outstanding mentor and a world class grammar teacher. She's a very tough talker but genuinely cares about her students. Anyone who's ever had her will remember her forever. Her class was a lot of work, but so is life. I did lousy on the AP English test, but still have managed to win writing awards at work. Don't take the test seriously, its a money making scam. Her class is very worthwhile, though. Flag Rating

Dec 19, 2006 I graduated in '83. What I know of English grammar, I learned from her. A fine lady and an excellent English teacher. Flag Rating

Aug 08, 2006 I took her AP English class in 1988. Simply put, if not for Eileen Byrne, I would not be able to pay my rent. I learned how to write in her class and writing has been the single most valuable and practical skill I have aquired in my life. A+! Flag Rating

Feb 02, 2005 Afterwards I realized she was the best teacher I ever had. I didn't do well on the comp exam and I didn't read any of the plays, but I still learned a lot. Breakfast Club for life! Flag Rating

Dec 13, 2004 Overrated. She would be an EXCELLENT professor. Perhaps she would have been better in AP11; but hey, when you teach just to get benefits, what do you expect. Flag Rating

Jul 13, 2004 I took Mrs. Byrne's AP English back in 1988, and I still use what I learned. Employers have noticed my writing level is higher than that of most others. Flag Rating

Dec 10, 2003 Mrs. Byrne is awesome. I loved APII because we had great debates in our class. Personally, it completely has to do with who's in your class. Flag Rating

Nov 16, 2003 Perhaps the greatest gift I recieved from Mrs. Bryne is the fact that a website like this judges NOTHING that makes a good teacher. She's not easy; She TEACHES. Flag Rating

Nov 13, 2003 Don't judge her by one of her study halls, she is really nice in class. If you dont do well its probably because you havent met her reasonable expectations. Flag Rating

Nov 13, 2003 AP11 was awesome, AP12 was a WASTE OF TIME. Many colleges wont transfer more than one passing AP english credit! Take 11 NOT 12. Coming from a grad... Flag Rating

Nov 09, 2003 She embodies evil. I'd have to say she is the worst teacher ever. Chances are she will read this and cackle b/c she thrives off fear. Flag Rating
