I had the honor of having Mrs. Bates as my English teacher. She is honestly the best English teacher I've had! She explains everything concisely, in ways we can understand/relate to. She is chill, but is stern on the rules she does have. She is a great teacher, I highly recommend her to anyone coming to Marina!

She was an engaging teacher, and I got a lot out of her teaching style. I often wondered how I was doing in the class, though -- I wish she would use the Parent/Student Portal to input assignments and grades in a timely manner.

She's such a great overall teacher. I had her for English Honors 3 and although she didn't prepare us for AP 4 the way Mr. Turner would have, she makes learning wayyyy more fun. She's one of those teachers who likes opinions. There's no wrong way of analyzing things which is how English should be -- open interpretation!!!

Ms. Bates is the most interesting and engaging English teacher I've ever had. Her no stress method of teaching releases students from the burden of worrying about their grades, freeing them to speak intellectually and flex their creative biceps.

one of my favorite teachers. Her teaching style encourages responses and will never disregard your opinion.. even if its eccentric. She makes class entertaining, which is fantastic for AP classes. Grading is fair. 91% won't get you an A, but she's flexible if you're closer.

shes kind of boring. Easy as an Ap English teacher. Her pop quizes happen out of nowhere. Her movies are boring. She is an easy grader, and her tests are easy.
