Ms. Stahl will challenge you in ways you didn't know were possible. I grew so much in the year I had her, because she opened the window and allowed me to see the world with a new perspective. An extremely talented and qualified writer herself, I have nothing but ultimate respect for her. People who "dislike" her either don't really know her or let their fear obstruct them from understanding what a beautiful teacher she really is. She is just a person like everyone else, and I love her for that.
G. Stahl saved my education, and indirectly, my life. Those who have not taken her class have a different (and insignificant) definition of respect. She has prepared me for the world -- the only person at Harwood a student can trust.
Though she liked me, I found her to be very judgemental and harsh. She trash talked other teachers and students and created a sort of cult within the class. She teaches respect yet she does not seem to know what respect is.
she doesn't help - in writing, she changes all the parts she doesn't like and tells you what to write instead. I wrote 4 pieces that were revised into final copy and my voice was hardly anywhere to be found by the end. She's arrogant, pretentious, and more concerned with etiquette and morals than actual ENGLISH literature.
she also doesn't know the difference between "honor" - "high respect; esteem" and an "honors class" - an advanced class. This class was the worst decision of my life.
Strongly believes that she is gods gift to teaching. Makes all of her students uncomfortable and scared, don't really understand how anyone expects for someone to learn while they're uncomfortable. She turns everything into something a lot more complex and emotional than it actually needs to be and I hate this woman.
An absolute gift to the school of Harwood.If you are willing to be broken down, she will teach you to build YOURSELF back up. She holds a unique light in the darkness
Ms Stahl's reputation at Harwood is conflicted. She is both loved and loathed, respected and dreaded. To some famous, to others infamous. In short, Ms Stahl is unlike any other teacher, good or bad.
If you are unwilling to challenge your perspective and unwilling to put your very being into writing and experiencing literature, don't waste yours or Stahl's time. She is a gift to the school.
Absolutely amazing teacher. I learned so much from her, college teachers are less rigorous then her. Id you dont take her class you are missing out!
The best English teacher, brilliant, be prepared for a rigorous intellectual workout.
I love this woman. She's a great teacher and you'll learn quite alot. Don't be afraid to take her class!
She made my class run laps one time because people were yawning too much.
Some people are afraid to take a class with Mrs. Stahl. Some love her. I'm afraid to take her class. I wish she would act "normal."
Awesome teacher everyone should take at least one of her classes. Take it from a graduate! She's awesome!
Do you guys really have to run laps...never had her class.
