Mrs. Tarr is one of the best English teachers you'll ever get. She doesn't overload you with work and gives you time, considering your other classes too. She teaches really well and although some people think she's boring, if you listen to what she talks about and do your work, you're guaranteed an A because everything else will just come to you. She's a wonderful teacher and I love her sense of humor in class sometimes. I think she's almost retiring though...

She's my english honor teacher and she's really nice, lets you talk sometimes, is fun, and shes strict when she needs to be. I guess she's a pretty good teacher to have. It's sad that she's retiring soon though...D:

Great Teacher, One of the Best AHS has to offer, very nice but strict, lots of reading but there interesting books or stories. She has a good sense of humor, always wants to listen to what student have to say even if it's off topic and with her you have to earn your grade.
