While she was tough on us in class, her lessons stay with you forever. Of all the teachers at MIHS I think everyone should have Mrs. Sayers. She actually prepares you for getting jobs and gives you real skills that you will use. While she is strict she is happy to work with students that are struggling, and once you finish her class she can be one of your best advocates.

Ms. Sayers has greatly improved my writing, vocabulary, grammar, typing skills, and work ethic. Although she assigns a lot of work, she throughly looks and provides a lot of helpful feedback. She also truly cares about her students and tried teaching us a lot of morals and life lessons. Her class was very difficult, but she was a fantastic teacher. She also taught us life skills such as writing résumés. I can't reiterate how helpful her class was and how great of a teacher she was.

Sayers is really hard!! She is really helpful and will prepare you for your future. she makes you do a career unit project in which you need to research a future career. Just dont get on her bad side aka dont talk or do anything she did not tell you to do. make sure your papers are perfect. Take English 9/Applied Tech, and pray you get sayers... you may hate her but she only trys to help.
