Ms. Touchton is a little bit disorganized in her lesson plans, which can be slightly irritating at times, especially when it comes to figuring out for whether or not you have homework. But she is a very nice lady and a good teacher who cares about her students. She is knowledgeable in what she talks about, also she prepares her students very well for the AP Lang Test.

Ms. Touchton prepares her students well for the AP Exam. Also, getting an A in her class is easier than in Jankowski for sure.

Ms. Touchton knows how to prepare her class for the AP Exam without assigning too much homework and keeping the class mostly enjoyable. Even if her lectures get a little slow and are filled with awkward silences, she is a very knowledgeable, helpful, and kind person. I'm glad to have had her.

Ms Touchtons class is SO BORING. Like there was literally always someone who was asleep in that class. Her teaching style isnt great, she talks for like 8 years and makes us take a lot of notes & is confusing when giving directions. If you dont do the assignment exactly the way she wants it she gets pissed off. Yeah, also, dont piss her off. She will be pissed for the rest of the block period, which isnt fun at all for anyone. Just do exactly what she says and youll pass.

She is SO BORING. when we do discussion she will literally talk for up to half an hour when students supposed to be talking. We only did about 2 AP multiple choice practice tests while jankowski did them nearly every class. Her grading for essays is just crossing out stuff and writing "awkward" with up to one or two comments total. The school should really replace her with someone else because she is one of the laziest uninspiring teachers i've ever had. and this is agreed upon by many students

Touchton is nice but she is a boring teacher. She is not always helpful either. She always posts the homework on the website though which is somewhat helpful but the homework is usually worksheets and if you have been absent she takes a while to email you back and sometimes forgets to input your grades. She is also a little disorganized. She grades really hard, do not expect any 100%'s in this class.

Very nice teacher when she wants to be, just make sure you don't piss her off. If you miss class because of sports, which happened to me all the time, she is really considerate and will help you to make everything up.

I. Love. Ms. Touchton. She's so sweet, so kind so CUTE. SHES SO CUTE. She will alwaaaays allow you to turn in late work, she's understanding. she's like that one teacher that if you were crying, she'd kindly tell you to take some time outside, and that everything is okay. she's very knowledgable, knows more than the book. she is the best<3
