very intimidating and if you don't do well in her class, she hates you and will always be out to get you. essays are impossible to do well on, even the genius' of the grade do poorly on them. treats her regular class like AP. asks the most obscure questions from the readings on the test. pulled my grade down so bad and always kept me off honor roll. dresses like she's in her 20s rather than her 50s. has favorites, especially if you play tennis.

Terrible teacher she thinks she know everything and really does not care what you say. She is always moody and very nasty. She picks out favorites and gives them good grades. Once I asked a question and she criticized me for asking it. She made a remark saying" well isn't it obvious " if it was obvious I would not ask it and she said it as if I was saying something stupid and made me feel that way. She takes class time to grade things and doesn't even recognize she has a class TERRIBLE TEACHER!!

Easily one of my favorite teachers at Prep, I took AP English just so I could have her twice. She doesn't make many corrections on essays, which causes some people to think she grades unfairly, but that could not be further from the truth. Her tests are not hard and if you actually put into practice what she teaches you, you will become a better writer and get the grades you so shamelessly desire.

Graded unfairly. Favored the boys! No essay was good enough for her. Judged you, and therefore your grades mysteriously went down and were not good!

Good teacher. Tough grader, but justified. She is sometimes hard to get along with but once you find make a true effort she is very easy to warm up to.

A great teacher who, though hard, can transform her students to be fantastic writers if they actually listen to her instead of blowing her off.
