I didn't like English throughout high school until her class
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!
ms bates was honestly one of the chillest and nicest english teachers that I've had throughout my 4 years in high school. she lets you be in groups to work on most projects and on essays she grades them pretty easy.
luv havin ms bates. Class was fun and easy and i learned alot to prepare me for life and my senior year!
ms. bates is such a cool human being. she is patient and cares about all her students. she's like a philosophy teacher! i absolutely adore her!
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.
I love Ms. Batessssssss. Bizzing is easy points. And she grades essays pretty easily. Just watch out for second semester, because she becomes way tougher!
AAAHHHH! Ms. Bates! She's awesome. I don't even know what to say. I wish I could have Ms. Bates for all of my classes. I have her for english and Theatre, and it's awesome! I love Ms. Bates!
Yes this class is quite easy...I love business english
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.
I love the class discussions. She is so perceptive. She is also very fair.
I liked her class, and english is my worst subject. It was easy if u did the work. Her tests are extremely easy though.
Awesome teacher, awesome class. Possibly the best I've had.
she's the best!!! she allows students to express their creativity in their own way. she's doesnt play favorites and she is a truly inspiring woman.
Miss bate sis one of the grestest teachers ive ever had!! i luv her open mind!
I had her the 1st year she started. She tries too hard to be liked i.e. easy "A". But be prepared to be annoyed!
