Very dedicated to her subject. Has little phrases that she will repeat often. Is nice but a tough grader. Does not tolerate sleeping in class at all. Make sure you read the books; she'll call you out.

Seemed to like my papers, but it's difficult to determine what she's looking for. Just write down everything pertinent you can think of, but avoid anecdotes. Count how often she says "if you will."

She's not that bad. It's a BORING class, that's for sure, but I was ready for the AP and the grading/work load wasn't nearly as harsh as the other teachers...but it is BORING.

People are too harsh. She clearly LOVES her subject and lets kids get away w/ way more than any teacher would allow. Try, and be polite, and she'll love you. Plus, it's a pretty easy class

She tries to be a good teacher but simply isn't. In fact, she's an awful teacher. She has no sense of connection with her students and fails to realize her class is seen by them as a complete joke.

the worst english teacher and she loses everything. In AP lang and she told me she grades me differently (more critically) due to the fact that she knows I will make an error. porter = unfair

I didn't really like Porter. It wasn't really specific, but her class was dull, and she didn't make sense half the time. Final project is easy, just try!

1/2 hour of grammer, 1/2 hour of homework or tests, and 1/2 hour of reading, good time usage! however, it's so easy, she keeps poking me to keep me awake :D
