I have no complaints. I screwed around for half the year, and then she got me to take the class seriously, and my grade improved dramatically.
Mrs. Simmons is probably the best teacher I've had in Enfield High. She's not easy, but not too hard. Her personality is great and she'll really teach you a lot. Unlike many of my teachers, she actually has my respect.
Meh, I think McMahon should be teaching UConn English. Simmons is really opinionated and plays favorites, it's either her way or the highway...yeah that's how it can be in college, and she'll tell you what to expect from college professors, but she doesn't always grade fairly. McMahon's a lot more open with varying opinions and will consider any view point, plus he's a much more fair grader...why do you think so many people take Critical Writing, but then don't go on to UConn? My point exactl
She's obviously passionate in teaching. I got along with her so well and she's SUPER funny. However, she does play favorites, which includes agreeing to every little thing she says. In papers, it doesn't matter if you thought Bob was a lost cause. If she thinks Bob was a great guy, write it in your paper as well. It's the only way to get an A, I've learned.
OMG love her!!! She's so funny. She's great at teaching and knows what to expect from us. Our discussions are awesome.
She's very funny and her energetic personality brightens up the classroom. You get quality when you're taught by Mrs. Simmons.
Mrs. Simmons is definitely NOT EASY, but she prepares students well beyond college preportory level. Participation is key in her classes. If you're not a talker, don't take her class or you'll probably not do well. She likes opinionated people, especially if it's in her favor. She's very funny. Again, very hard grader. Prepares you for college level writing. HIGHLY recommended!
I had her for Honors 10th and Brit. Lit. She loves to laugh and joke. She cares about her students, and will help them through anything even if it isn't related to English class. She's VERY nice.
this class is good and the projects are fun and Mrs. simmions is a good teacher.^^
I had her, excellet teacher, I loved her, and got along with her. We had fun, and she is so nice. I wish I could have her again
what an awesome teacher! i left her class with some great essays...and excellent grades!
