(Cont.) I will give credit to the many incredibly professional english teachers I had before Heather Matheson. They deserve their jobs, Heather Matheson does not. To say I wasted 9 months sitting through her class is a HUGE understatement. My advice: avoid her class at any and every cost or expect to suffer through a year with the "teacher" from he!!.

(Cont.) Heather Matheson makes Juanita High School look terribly inadequate as well - how can they allow a woman like this to teach the students they are responsible for education? Although it is only the end of September, my current english professor said the last few essays I have submitted have been outstanding, and I will not give credit to Heather Matheson for this, because she has taught me nothing.

This is coming from a student who has had many incredible English teachers up until senior year, who did their job and helped me improve. I simply am here to share my experience with this woman. If she is just "working" to earn money until retirement, then she should find a job that doesn't affect the education/futures of 150 students annually. She has consistently brought up about how she is considering quitting - this is way past due.

Out of the 55 different teachers I have had in the past 18 years of my life, Heather Matheson was by far the worst. This woman brags about her professionalism, when she has committed many unprofessional acts in the 9 months I have been "taught" by her. At first I blamed myself, thinking I was simply incapable at becoming a good english student/writer, until the other 27 students in my class agreed at how crummy of a "teacher" she is - not only students, but several parents.

Hands downs the worst teacher I've ever had. She loses your papers at least once a month, she does not care about students or the ap exam at all. she does not pay attention to certain people, she picks favorites!

She is incapable of organization or of consistently informing students of deadlines. She discourages her students from doing well at school, mocking the importance of grades while simultaneously creating very difficult exams and reducing the incentive of students to even try.

Had HM in 1990- more passionate and memorable than any of my college English professors. Forgive her eccentricities. she fearlessly takes u out of your comfort zone, forcing you to question and grow.

The best part about Matheson wasn't even that she improved my english skills (although she completely did) it was that she helped me to find myself somewhere along the way. She's real. Thank you, M.
