Mar 08, 2012 Alright, when I found out I had her I was so scare; everyone said bad things about her. I don't know if it's just my class, but that is not the case at all. She is such a nice lady, I've never heard her yell and her assignments are appropriate for 12th graders. She isn't some pushover that knows nothing about what she teacher, you actually learn from her! As long as you listen and do your work, you're good. Note that I'm in Honors English, not AP. I think the AP kids have it way worse. Flag Rating

Jan 18, 2012 I can honestly say she is the worst teacher I have ever had. Her directions are unclear and half the time she doesnt know what she is talking about. No wonder she is so highly disreguarded by not only the students but the staff as well. Flag Rating

Aug 07, 2011 A very intelligent teacher with a lot of passion for what she teaches. She gets a bad rap for being a bit strict and having high expectations, but I learned so much from her. One of my fave teachers! Flag Rating

Oct 31, 2005 One of the stupidest people i have ever met. I learned nothing from her but blatant misinformation and how not to do things. I pity all AP English students at CHS who have her. Flag Rating

May 07, 2005 Gives confusing directions and treats you like you're stupid when you don't understand. Much into pontificating as well. Avoid in favor of Kimball, etc. if possible. Flag Rating

Mar 31, 2005 Spends more time insisting on the importance of what she is going to teach than actually teaching it. Has a very paternalistic attitude towards her students. Flag Rating

Oct 29, 2003 Learn to write a McEssay, and you're fine. She prepares you well for AP's though. She's a good teacher, just very disagreeable. Flag Rating
