My experience with Joy Pohl goes back to ERHS in 1978-1979. I am so glad she is still sharing her gifts with students. I owe much of my professional success to her... she taught me to organize my thoughts and communicate clearly... and it was so much more than just grammar. She was also the COOLEST teacher I have ever had. She left a lasting impression on me... and I will never forget her. She was kind, and helpful, and yes... demanding! :)

Best English teacher ever. She's so funny and understanding. Always turned in my papers late b/c she'd rather have a late A paper than an on-time crappy paper.

Best English teacher I've had, and a very cool woman. Those that don't like to be pushed wouldn't like her, because she demands a lot from her students. Students that meet the challenge will get more out of her classes than they could have imagined.

She is very hard, but she is SOOO helpful. She is a really nice woman too. I am really thankful that I have her, because when I get to college I will know what I am doing instead of everyone else who is in AP LIT but its still honors 12.

Had Dr. Pohl 10 years ago. Her lessons remain among the most enduring of my academic career, and I went on to Major in english and go to law school.
