I was honored to be one of her very first students. She is a very demanding teacher and expects a lot from her students. SFC Batts is a proven leader time and time again. If she wasn't as firm as she was with me when I was a young student I would of failed out of school. I thank her for being firm and fair with me. Its because of her why I am a 1SG in the Army today. It's JROTC not the boys and girls club.
Respectively,

I'm disappointed at the shallowness of most of these posts. I'm 26 years old, and still consider this woman a defining figure in my life. During my Freshman year of High School, SFC Batts set me straight. She gave me the perspective and focus required to succeed in a harsh world that takes no prisoners. Call her strict, but know this - Helen Batts has sent more young people on the right path in life than any other educator I've encountered thus far. Thank you, SFC Batts.

She's OK. She obviously has her favorites and she can be mean at times, but she doesn't really do anything and forgets to tell you things and claim she did. Like tests for example.

She doesn't really go over things for the test, she just tells us we're having one. Everything done in class is controlled by class leaders. She doesn't really play a big role in my education.

SFC Batts is more than just an AI to me, she is very caring and understanding. To me, she is like a mother who would push you to the limit so that you can get things done right. But she will always be here for you especially when you most needed her. And you know what, she got the bestest hugs in the world, it's always warming and tight and comforting. To make this easy, she is the best.

She is an all around fair woman except for the fact that she favors one sided arguments (which are ALWAYS in her favor). She tends to rile someone up and/or ask them a question, and not allow them to provide an explanation. However, she doesn't show favoritism which is VERY REFRESHING taking into consideration the other AI's who show EXTREME favoritism.
