Dr. Decker is a wonderful teacher. She was named one of the best teachers in NYC for a reason!! She takes time out of her day to truly LISTEN to every one of her students, and it is obvious that she really cares deeply about everything she does and everyone she encounters. Love her!!

she is literally amazing as a teacher and person. such a wise and influential figure in my life. anyone who doesnt follow her very reasonable rules may get lower grades, but unless you are baseline disrespectful she will treat you well.

It has been almost 20 years since I sat in Ms. Deckers poetry class. In my life I have continued on my creative path and have made my living as an artist/songwriter. To this day I give credit to her guidance and original approach to teaching. It kept me in high school and help me find my voice in writing for so long.

Her quizzes are so hard if you don't read because she makes up the questions while she's reading the book. She's annoying and makes you wait till the bell to pack up and you always have to keep your book open, she's very confusing. She's very smart though and helpful with stuff but she can also target you and ruin English for you forever. Watch out. If you get her, switch classes it'll make your life easier.

Do the work and you'll be fine. I used to think she was mean but it's only because I never went to class and never did any of the work. She was the only teacher who called me out on it and made sure I did what I had to do. After that I actually liked the class and like her. OH DON'T EVER CALL HER ms or mrs. Always DR

She is very manipulative. She will make you feel bad for leaving her class. She is not so hard, but she is unpredictable. She does what she feels like doing. Projects and essays are a big thing.
