To be completely honest she was straight up, just a bad teacher. She is very forgetful of stuff and often doesnt make sense. Her class was really boring as well. I am not the type of person to slack of in class but you just dont feel like doing anything once you step in to her class. :(

She was fired last school year. Overall, she was a poor teacher but was easy.

First off, she does not have her stuff together! She always changes her deadlines and blames it on her students, but it is really because she's unprepared. She always loses everyone's papers and bulls

I'm fine with the amount of work that she gives, she just does NOT teach; when we ask for help she tells us that we should already know what to do. She is also always late and she is unorganized.

If you get this teacher, you seriously want to talk to your counselor to change your teacher. You won't learn anything. Her grading system is bad and she doesn't even know the homework and assignments

She isn't the best at explaining things to us. She even forgets the hw she assigns, sometimes forgets when it's due. She is tough and strict but atleast she cares for the students. She aint the worst.

hahahaha i love these rates. To the person who said, "favors to the Electronices kids," she doesn't. Yeah she is a bad teacher and stuff, but it is true on how she say things that doesn't make sense.

Out of every 3 assignments completed and turned in, only 1 will be counted as she blames YOU for loosing it. Indy staff NEEDS to listen and look over these concerns from student and parents. Seriously

I understood about...0.0000001% of the words that came out of her mouth over the course of the school year. That is pretty sad for an ENGLISH teacher...But she is really easy. Yay :)

She loses all your papers and doesn't care. She never sticks to her plans and never clarifies what she wants in a homework assignment. She never answers questions.

Sloppy teacher. She forgets what she assigns to students, and has no idea what she is doing. She jumped from being a 3rd grade teacher to high school.Enoughsaid

she's a very hard teacher to understand. She needs to be more organized and stop getting mad at her students if they can't seem to understand the material

She needs more organization and less contradiction. Maybe that way I could have learned something instead of feeling like I wasted a year in her class. Class 03
