Great teacher. She's smart, funny, and teaches you how to write straight-forward, concise, and structured essays. Focuses on created a good foundation for solid essay-writing, not necessarily creative writing. If you suck at writing essays she'll destroy you and your essays. If she gives you bad grades it's because your essay sucks not because she doesn't like you. A lot of kids complain about bias but it's really because you suck. So if you're a bad writer get help from her often!

Excellent teacher, don't get on her bad side and you'll be golden. She loved me and I always dropped 90's and 100's on her essays despite my relatively average writing skills. Class can be boring...

Amazing teacher teaching wise. Very humorous person in a sadistic type of way (you'll love it). The biggest issue is, if you CAN'T write properly, you will unfortnately SUFFER in her class. She teaches you how to write very well so PAY ATTENTION!
