Ms Ives is one of the most passionate, quirky, and fun people I've ever met and i cherish the time I spent in her class. She was one of the first teachers I encountered who treated her students like adults and would lay down the facts bluntly. In her class I also learned that teachers are human beings too with crazy personalities and that they can be as much as friends as they are mentors. She may seem a bit strange but her huge heart and fierce knowledge have made her classes unforgettable.
I love her like family. She's one of the only English teachers that has ever actually taught me anything. She's hilarious, and treats her students like adults. I'm a way better writer thanks to her. She's someone I know I can talk to about anything no matter what.
She was rambunctious and wild, and she made class a riot. She would give us mountains of work, but it would pay off later by the end of the school year.
