She gives a lot of homework, mainly project like. When it come to authors, poets, and literature in general ,she knows everything. She could seem mean at times but looks out for everyone's best interest.

Mrs. Ward is interesting. She expects a lot from her students, but she's definitely willing to give help when you need it. She hates the textbook and she's rigid in the work she'll except. She has a tendency to forget what she's told each class, so one period might get all these directions on an assignment while another won't even know there's an assignment due until she asks how they're doing the week of. And there's always one student in each class that she picks on relentlessly. I loved her.

Mrs. Ward assigns an enormous amount of work in her class and is at times very intimidating. Although you may be cursing her name on the night before one of her tests her knowledge of English is amazing. If you go in to her class during lunch or before school she is much nicer. She teaches you a lot, but be prepared to do a lot of work. ASK QUESTIONS!

Gave a ridiculous amount of work without explaining how to do it. Constantly insulted her students and told them they wouldn't amount to anything. Exams were difficult and often based on material that was not taught. Overall rude and unhelpful.

People say they don't like her because it's popular opinion; she is one of the best teachers I have ever had. She covers so much in the class. Be thankful if her name shows up on your schedule, because you'll love her by the end of the year.

This is not an easy class to take. Although when you do well on a project, or get a good score on a test it sure feels awesome. she is fairly strict but if you are a good student you will get on her good side. I really enjoy this class. It is such a great feeling doing well

Mrs. Ward is truly an amazing teacher. You learn a diverse amount of material and are challenged at an intellectual level. For her to like you and to praise you, you actually have to put effort in.

I just graduated from high school, so I've had many english teachers... Ward is not a good english teacher, in the least. She gave WAY too much work and hardly ever taught the content.

I hated Mrs. Ward! She gives the hardest tests, and never praises you when you do something right. In my opinion, she doesn't deserve to be teaching IB students.

Easily the best english teacher I've ever had. I've breezed through every english class since hers because of the sheer volume of material she managed to cram into my head. She's tough, and she gives a lot of work, but it's well worth it.
