Very nice lady, but a terrible teacher. Her tests were impossible, and would ask ridiculous questions like "what color was the tractor in the sunlight?" or other absurd things.

I think she tries to teach but fails miserably. I can't tell if she understands what she's teaching considering all she does is give us packets. she's also really monitone. she's a nice person though.

i did not enjoy her class. she's pretty nice and laid back, but she does not teach or explain anything. as far as the class goes, not too much work, but it's tedious. work hard. you'll do fine.

Mrs. Holmes is such a nice lady but she isn't very clear in her teaching. She doesn't know what she is talking about and a lot of the time the honors kids correct her in her mistakes.

Holmes is maybe the worst teacher I have ever had. She barely knows the material she is supposed to teach, and if she does she certainly doesnt teach it to her students.

basically does not teach anything, just passes out packets copied from textbooks and expects you to learn the information on your own. I dont think we ever did anything in class. If you had a good english teacher before, you'll do well. if not, good luck. her tests are full of impossible and confusing questions. make sure you read the books.

Excellent teacher. Very nice woman with a great sense of humor who will empathize with her students. If you're in her class, you have to work, but it is pretty easy to earn an A.

Every bad grade that I got from Holmes, I deserved. She is a great teacher. She expects the best from her students, so she can be a bit tough, but that's one of her best qualities. Plus, she has an awesome sense of humor.

Mrs. Holmes is a class act, a dedicated teacher who is a master at her craft; it is an honor and a privilege for our students to be under her tutelage. Those willing to put forth effort benefit.

Easy class, funny teacher. She is wrong about accusations though. She is great though and very amusing.

She's not a good teacher. I to say because she's terribly nice and extremely understanding, but that only makes me more sure about my opinion of her as a teacher. She doesn't really teach. She'll read directly from the lessons with barely any variation and she suffocates your writing style. If you don't write exactly what she wants she'll take off points. She's nice, but not a good teacher.

She has a quota for the amount of As she gives out. Enough said, Mrs Holmes is awful.

sometimes she can be really easy, and sometimes she can be really hard. Very picking about writing an analysis. Overall, a really nice teacher.

For those of you who dislike her, maybe it's because you don't pay attention? Or maybe you cheat? Because either way, it's nothing she's doing wrong so lay off her back and start getting on your own case, if you really want to complain about grades, take a look at your own performance.
