My fav. class. Not hard IF YOU STUDY. She's probably the only old lady I like to stay after and talk to. She's also the most caring and helpful teachers I have EVER had. What an excellent woman.

so we all complained about the work at the time, but we all know she better prepared us for college while doing so. looking back, her class was not that bad and she is such a nice lady.

The only thing I learned was better grammar and how to cite sources. She has no creativity. She basically teaches how to write essays for classes that aren't english.

She has analyzed thousands of poems, shorts, and novels but I doubt she has experienced a single one. And that Mrs. Boswell is what writing and literature is truly about.

Okay,the Boz is hard, but she's really a nice lady and good teacher. Those who complain shouldn't have been in Honors in the first place.

This teacher is unfair and terrible. I learned nothing, and she did not grade w/rubrics. It appeared as though she never read my work, and I learned nothing.

Mrs. Boswell is a great TEACHER, not to be confused with an adult who just hands out A's. You learn so much in this class (You had better). I can whip out quality essays like nobody's business, now that I've had her.

GOOD GOD! Lay off the homework and essays. We are only in high school HERE! Your class is ok and ur teaching is good, but the tests are incredibly too hard and your grade way to rough. Its sad when the highest grade is a B(barely).

I had her 2 years in high school, and believe me in college you do need to know the stuff that she teaches you! Especially the whole research thing! And don't be afraid to ask her to hold study sessions before tests because they are really helpful!

Mrs. Boz, you ran a tight class, but you're so sweet. You went to every effort to make your students understand and learn to love English, and that's what makes you such a great teacher.
