Mrs. Black challenged me to break out of my comfort zone and better myself at public speaking. She was intimidating, but a great English teacher.

Hated my guts the day I walked in. Very judemental towards me. Her honors class was more of a theatre class. Couldn't stand her.

I'm sure everyone in my class agrees with me- she may be hard but she is incredibly knowledged and you learn SO MUCH in her class. It's worth it.

If you like English, then don't listen to what other's say. You should like her. But if you're just trying to get an "A" in an honors class, she WILL make it hard for you.

she's definitely the hardest 10th grade honors english teacher. she's kind of scary and plays favorites, but seriously, the people she doesn't like are the people rude to her. just be nice, work hard, and she'll be way more lenient on you. MAKE A GOOD FIRST IMPRESSION!

Ms. Ernst helped me more than any other teacher in the whole history of my education. I can't sum up in 180 letters how much I appreciate her dedication.

Unfortunately, I found her very biased. I feel that she knows what she is doing, but really needs to play favorites less.

she talks way to much about the future and not enough about the important things. Teaches but not sure if she is teaching the things we need to know.
