She's a nice person. But she can't remember her students. She doesn't lash it out on the students even when they don't participate.

Granted, she's nice. However, she singlehandedly convinced me that I did not want a career in journalism. She also tended to give out assignments and tests pretty late.

she's a sweet lady, but the whole "plagiarism" thing is really not fair. She accused me of plagiarism that i didn't commit.

She is a really tough grader and hard to impress, but she is a sweet person who tries her best to make her classes fun and interesting. For her, perfection equals 88-92.

When I went to Townsend Harris, she was my least favorite teacher. She set up her classroom so her favorites were up front of her U-Shaped nonsense.

Mrs. Cowen is really funny but intellectually. She's a great teacher, the best I've ever had! If you think her class is dull, perhaps it's you! Wake up & learn!
