Mrs. Drake is great. I didn't expect her to be a really nice teacher, due to rumors and stuff. Also, my bro and sis said she was strict too so I was honestly scared. But in reality, it was actually ok. Although she is slightly strict and grades harshly, she changed my life. Her socratic seminars progressively became easier for me and definitely made me more confident to speak in class. Q1 was hard for me, but overall, I did pretty well in her class. Currently have a 94%!

she yells way too much. also if you're not one of her favorites, then you will likely get a C or lower in your class. Be careful when answering questions because even though she says all answers are right she will most likely call your answer stupid. try to stay on her good side or else u will die.

Has extremely high expectations, but when you meet them you will probably find the class not as hard as you think. Has a serious problem with favoritism. Stay on her good side!

drake...well..dont expect to come out of her class alive. she is probably one of the cruelest teacher youll ever have, unless youre one of her favorites. she tells us that all answers are right, but you fail anyways. the ninth grade teacher was wayy better. my little sisters in elementry would be better at teaching than she

honestly, this isn't even an english class. Its more like speech and debate. You must talk a lot and then after you speak, she judges you and gives negative comments. Also, this class is so unfair because all the very shy, but smart people get F's and all favorites and vocal people get A's.

Whenever I have class with Mrs. Drake, she always cuts me off when I try to answer, and when I get to answer, I get it "wrong". Then a kissup student says what I said except in a first grade way, and she is always all like, "You're right! Good job!" And the worst part is that she says there is no wrong answer, and then I answer and "get it wrong."

Elizabeth is, confusing at the best. She can be almost plain evil, and she plays favorites all day, everyday. IMO, my 6th grade teacher was better.

Mrs. Drake is unreasonable and expects us to figure out what she wants without telling is what she wants. She also is belittling and makes us feel bad because we did not read her mind.

Mean and sarcastic. She talks too fast and loses her temper if you don't understand what she is talking about. I wish I had Mr Folsom.
