J1 was a terrible class. Luckily I kept going, I highly recommend photoj. get on her good side(sit in front row). think of it as a challenge. once you're her favorite you'll be in a comfortable family

Completely turned me off Journalism. Her J1 class isn't an elective, she makes it into a 2nd English class- but harder. Her expectations for also articles are ridiculously high.

She really knows how to run the newspaper and yearbook, and is just an awesome teacher all around. Punctuality, commitment, and meeting deadlines is all she ask.

Mrs. Gaines is very sweet. She lets us have free rein, and is really funny and nice to talk to! She treats us like we're her family-and we all call her "Mom"

this teacher is doesn't really know how to teach. She's disorganized, plays favorites and doesn't understand the fundamentals of journalism.
