Ms. Harrington is by far the best english teacher I have ever had. I took her real world lit course sophomore year and we had unforgettable debates in that class. We read pretty good books, and that class taught me a lot about literature and about life. We wrote a lot of personal essays which was fun. She was always very approachable and helpful, and she really appreciated good revisions. She tells the class a lot of funny stories and treats her students like her friends, gaining their respect.

If you go to her and ask for help she will gladly offer you some and she is always willing to discuss due dates for assignments if there are issues. She's also a very fun teacher and makes the class enjoyable. It's hard to fall asleep in her class.

Ms. Harrington gave me a c- in the first quarter of senior year. I went to her and I told her that I screwed up but I couldn't have that on my report card. She gave me make up work and she raised my grade. Ms. Harrington is really reasonable and is by far one of my favorite teachers. She may not have a very exciting curriculum but she is really fun.

people say you have to agree with her to get anything above a c... well, actually, I've written 3 papers so far this year, disagreed with her strongly in every one, and gotten an A every time. Maybe you just aren't writing well enough. Deal with it.

shes ok...but she seems to grade down when you arent really agreeing with her ideas unless you talk to her about first, the classes are ok but its kind of hard to get anywhere with your own ideas without immedeatley backing them up-Anonymous

Very good teacher, nice, cares, but doesn't let you express your ideas and if a discussion starts and gets a little heated she just stops it. Whenever she gives us a paper she ALWAYS gives us a thesis, and topic to write about. She also tries to impose her ideas on you. She means well and is a great teacher, but needs to work on letting students express their ideas more with each other rather than her
