She was super helpful and understanding of the work I put into all of her assignments. I wasn't in her musical group, but she still liked me. If you were or are a hard worker, she likes you and her class will be enjoyable. If you don't do what's expected of you...have fun with that.

Holly Barnum would make fun of kids in front of them in class and she always complains and always wants people to feel bad for her. And like everyone says, she favors her musical kids.😒 H8 her

Reading these comments, it can obviously be shown that Mrs. Bantum favors certain children. I was in the musical all three years with her so I know first hand she is biased in social situations. As a whole, Mrs. Bantum was a very influential teacher and challenged me all three years, whether it be in shows or in English class. She is the first person who taught me how to wrap quotes, use MLA format, and challenge the ideas I had been brought up with. She is tolerant of all and well rounded.

Even though I was in the musical, Mrs. Bantum still favored some of the other musical kids and the rest of us were just kind of invisible. She also complained about how much he school expects her to do but then complains that she wants a new and higher teaching roll. She didn't really teach me any new skills, even though we were supposed to work on grammar.

As a 3 year musical kid, I can completely say the Bantum is so extremely, painfully biased towards those kids(check presenters as an example). Her class was quite challenging and it's clear that Bantum is a very smart individual. This would be a good thing in a teacher if we were actually taught things in class and didn't talk about politics or her salary! Despite these bad qualities, Bantum really has made an impact on my life as I've been around her for 3 years. So...thanks but no thanks...

I am appalled after reading several of these comments. Holly Bantum is a well-respected person. She strives to do the best for everyone. Many have said that she favors her musical cast. When you spend that much time with a select group of students, it's bound to happen. Coaches often favor their players and that's just life. It doesn't mean she disrespects the rest of her students. Bantum has made a definate impact on my life and is one of the greatest people I know. Love you Mom!

Mrs. Bantum is okay. But it's like she tries to be cool and then she ends up trying to hard. She tries so bad that you kinda start to hate her.
