Graduated RHS 20 years ago and will still think of her "No no words" list when writing essays. Excellent, brilliant, professional educator. If you are lucky enough to be one of her students, pay attention.

Ms Wassall is defintely an interesting teacher. She is funny and the class isn't too boring for an english class. Not the easiest but not the hardest. Picks favorite and not a fan of kids that joke around. Was apart of her worst class she's probably ever teached (in terms of joking around, she even said it was difficult to deal with) which probably made it more fun, but still not bad

Ms. Wassall is like the kind of teacher you see in movies-- movies like "Dead Poets Society". She is in a league of her own. By far the finest teacher at RHS. She meets with every student privately (30 min. sessions) for every formal paper, and that does not go unappreciated. I currently have her for AP English Language & Composition and already feel my writing has improved so much. She conducts class as a seminar and everyone's voice is heard. God bless her!

I was expecting to love this class since a lot of good things were said about her, but she is one of my least favorite teachers this year. She is funny and easygoing, but I've noticed that she clearly picks favorites. Tips to become a favorite: be super outgoing and bubbly and show up everyday, I'm sure she will consider you then.

This is one of the best classes I took. We were treated as adults; we were allowed to explore literarure and writing and as a result grew enormously; she was helpful and supportive.

She loves everyone, even if they don't deserve it. The class is demanding and she expects you to take responsibility for the work. Research projects must die.
