Not a nice person. Pretends to be important. Time for her to go. Reputation is good, reality is awful. Stop complaining and retire already.

Ms. Yam is the greatest. She really taught me how to write analysis instead of plot. She is great for 10th grade honors english. Just work hard like me and she will appreciate it. I love yam!!

You either do as she says or she'll find ways to fail you until you do so. Tough but helpful.

In Yamaguchi's defense, the editors spend bulk of their time with their writers/photographers...and if they don't positively contribute as much as the next, they deserve their lower grade.

Yearbook is a joke. She does not know how to assist students in leading. Grades are determined by the editors. Many violations of the California Ed Code.

Not many say this, but I thought she was fairly easy. After C&B's column notes, it was way easier to just turn in a final draft. She really helps you improve, as well.

It's such a relief not having loads of busy work (think column notes). Expect a D/C- on the 1st essay, but she grades on improvement, so As and Bs are possible
