Oh my God if I could go back.. I was in her English 9H honors class and not switching was a BIG mistake.I still had a 96% GPA for most of freshman year but her class was something else. Even if 1/4 of the class failed a test with 40's she would not give anyone points back. She's not super strict or bitchy she's just not my kind of teacher. The way that she teaches is just not my type at all. Pretty difficult multiple choice tests and she also VERY picky with essays. Switch to Ms. Barb if you can

The tests are hard, not because the questions are hard, but because there's only 5 questions meaning a couple of mistakes can DESTROY you. If I were to describe my experience in her class using a book title, it'd be "Things Fall Apart" by Chinua Achebe

Ok teacher. The pop quizzes are extremely hard because they only have 3 questions. Otherwise, a knowledgeable person.

Her class was pretty easy. Actually read the books, study and you'll do fine. Lots of pop quizzes. Very quirky, sassy. Never smiles. Tries to be humorous but it seems childish & awkward. Honestly i think she should be an actress for local plays because this entire year was like watching her tell her stories about the books as if it were her own experience while she makes weird noises and face expressions. She doesn't need to talk as much as she does, she doesnt seem to care about the students.

She is an amazing teacher!!! Her class is really great if you pay attention and do her homework (as always). Her test are really easy if you study. Otherwise they are kind of difficult. She can be rude at times, but only if you are late to her class or rude to her. She was really helpful if you asked for her help. She knew what she was teaching and was able to explain it well. Overall she is a wonderful teacher!

She was a good teacher and her class was sometimes interesting, but it was extremely hard to sit through at times and she's sometimes rude to students. It's not a class that I would want to take again, but it was tolerable. Also, her first name is Joy, which I find ironic.

She was okay, definitely wouldn't want her again, though. Also, why is she always pregnant?!

She did have a little bit of an attitude, but I loved her anyway. She could be really funny and she took the time to make sure you knew what you needed to know. She wasn't mean unless you gave her a reason to be. I really liked her! :)

GOT TO GET THIS OFF MY CHEST: She looks like John Malkovich, look him up on google if you don't believe me. Anyway on another note, great teacher, loud, funny, and her tests are extremely difficult.
