She's an amazing person to talk to- so nice, so funny. When it comes to grading spirals, if you seriously follow directions, those points are the easiest 200 points in middle school history. If you don't, sucks for you haha. She does a lot of vocabulary and I just wish she taught more grammar and reading things from the text book. That would have benefitted my 8th grade year.

I did not like Ms. Mckenzie, nor did I feel I really learned in her class. She was often rude and unnecessarily mean. She did have her good days though, and would sometimes let us work in groups. The way she makes you color, memorize poems, and how meticulously she grades the spirals is very time consuming, frustrating, and useless. At least I can say being in her class, all of the students really bonded. When the year finished we were all elated to have finished.

Mrs. McKenzie is by far the worst teacher I have ever had in my whole life. She is unnecessarily strict, punishes you for unavoidable mistakes,

Mrs. mckenzie is an OK teacher. the coloring is pretty stupid and so is the whole spiral concept. She'd actually earn the liking of students if she improves a bit.

She is really good at teaching and we get through lessons quickly, but she takes way too many points for missed work.

She was a good teacher to learn from but punishes for unavoidable mistakes. She makes you color herway and switch to cursive Italics. A good teacher, but could make class a whole lot more fun!!

Nice teacher. To some, she might seem demanding, but she isn't mean-spirited. Not exactly a memorable class, though.

She gives out way too many detentions for making human mistakes, makes us change to a new style of writing, and makes us color in a pointless way. And she expects so much respect when half the time us
