I have her this year 2009-2010 for honours english. She has such great energy and though I'm not very talkative, I find myself listening to everything she says. She sometimes gets off topic but that just makes the class better because it garners my attention so when she gets back on topic I learn everything I need to. She is extremely helpful and gladly helps after class and during lunch. My favourite teacher this year!

Steece has no idea what she is talking about, and will not admit it. Instead, she pretends she does. Fact-check everything she says.

She very often says her facts wrong, so if you dont pay attention to her, compare everything (and i mean EVERYTHING) to gatsby, and write in purple prose, you are good to go for an A

Great teacher and storyteller. Sit up front to listen. Excels in teaching you how to structure an essay properly, which is so important for college! Likes participation, not empty vessels

writes the whole essay for you and then gives you a failing grade, and on top of it makes new corrections on top of her already made corrections, she is a bootleg teacher. Not every nice.

from a student from 1986: she is nice, flighty, and will almost write your essay for you if you approach her. also stylistically/thematically inflexible. ironic for lit teacher.

She's not very open-minded when it comes to writing. She has to be her way or you get a bad grade.

I know some students try to engage her in conversation so we don't have to read. It's a cruel, cunning tactic but it provides entertainment.
