Dr. Thoens is not only the greatest English teacher I have ever had, but the greatest teacher period. I have taken her classes for 3 years and would gladly do so again

She can be funny at times and is very nice. However, her grading can be harsh on essays and she has a mentality that if critics haven't said it, it's not true.

Her jokes are stale and repetitive. Her class is getting easier as the year progresses, but she has to stop writing "blah, blah, blah" on the board.

An ok teacher, but bad repetitive jokes. I agree with the person below me, definately too many "Uh"s and "Um"s. She's an english teacher, for crying out loud!
