Dr. Gauen was my teacher for many years before becoming a principal. She is a well educated, knowledgeable woman who takes education seriously and does not slack off, and she expects the same from her students. Many students dislike being told what to do, and Dr. Gauen expects a lot from her students. She helped me become a confident writer and encouraged me when I was interested in becoming a teacher.

DR. Is a MUST when addressing this Queen of the School Now Principle first year.....Hates to deal with Parents By the way regardless of age you are treated like a student. Your Grammar will be corrected in front of any one at any time for any reason even if your 28,57,65 any age. She has the unscrupulous ability to berate and will do so. BRING YOUR A GAME to any Meeting I.E.P or other wise. Have a copy of the 2009 hand book well memorized. She is a Dictator!

Overwhelming with the stickers. Honors English II was easier than HEI. She switches curriculum around a lot so it can be a tad hard to keep everything straight. She's also not good at reminding you wh

I thought she was a fine teacher. And for those students who are complaining about the difficulty, remember that honors English isn't supposed to be easy! If you can't handle it, drop out of honors :p

Really knows her stuff, but the stickers can get a little annoying occasionally. And by the way, she earned the right to be called Dr. Gauen.

The best teacher I have ever had. She is a tough grader on papers, but her teaching skills have taught me to write well. Take her class, you won’t regret it!
