Honestly, it is extremely easy to get a hundred in her class, but without the pressure of getting a grade it comes down to seatin and when it comes to that shell stab u in the back. She is way to unfair and highly favors some

She is completely unstable. she cries way too much in class, and puts her family's problem in to the lives of her students. she favors students by allowing them to miss class, and then is vindictive towards her other students
