Waste of my entire year, I didn't learn a single thing. Don't believe the 5 star reviews, they are probably written by her herself.
As a current student, I feel that she has no respect for her students. Instead of handing papers to students, she rudely tosses the papers on the students desks and looks down on the student.
She lacks depth when analyzing and also plays favorites in her classes. She treats certain people better than others. She also has an attitude where she is very bossy and unreasonable at certain times. I would not recommend her.
This teacher got my child ready for the expectations of college. Do your work, be respectful, try your best. My guess is that all these negative comments are from students who don't know the difference between "you're" and "your."
One of the worst teachers on campus besides Mr. Belcher. She goes over AP multiple choice questions by reading answer explanations from the book to you. She also complains when she can not read students' writing when it takes me 10 minutes to understand what she is trying to write on my essays. She also kicked a student on the knee for sleeping in class. Do not take Lyons unless you want to go in to class everyday wanting to kill yourself.
AP Eng 4: Gives a LOT of work, but don't cheat and do your best. You will be pulling all-nighters for this class. Always turn in work on time, go to tutorials when you need to/when she asks you to. Learned & improved my writing a lot. Be nice to her, and she'll be nice to you. Put in effort into your work, and she'll put in effort grading it. She is biased. Great storyteller and sense of humor. Bad temper at times, but enjoyable in the long run. Got B+ first semester, A- second semester. :-)
One of the most underrated teachers on campus . The most important aspect of her class is the essay writing. Get off your high horse and stop expecting an A on everything (directed towards the freshmen). --L.S.
Make sure you get on her good side. Always ask questions but not to often to where she thinks your wasting time. Not an easy class by any means. Do your best to stay on topic on essays. Keep an organized binder which are free points Work on lit terms
Shes very critical on your essays and assignments. She can get very angry at times and has random mood swings.There are also other very hard English 1 honors teacher, be happy that you at least get her.If you were to choose, get Donee for English 1 H
As a freshman in her class I struggled in English honors. Mainly because I could not improve on my essay writing and her criticism and advice was unclear and did not help. I am desperate to avoid her in my senior year if I am to take AP English 4.
Mrs Lyons is one of the easiest teachers on this campus. if you make it look like you tried on your hw, you'll do good. if you do your work which is super easy and you read the 1 chapter a day she assigns, this class is a joke. hardest part is essays. she's super strict on those, and during oa's she blares terrible pop music and its hard to concentrate. basically for people who like lots of easy work to get a good grade
Very hard teacher and very cynical. If you are not on task, she gets really angry. i.e. forgetting an assignment. She also has very random mood swings and is very ironic.
Mrs. Lyons has definitely changed from when I had her my freshman year to my senior year. She is laid back and she taught me a new way to analyze poetry. Definitely learned something.
Her class was pretty easy if you have regular English. She tells the class to ask her questions when we need to, but she usually gets mad for getting out of the seat to ask a question. She calls people out if they're late or absent a lot. She doesn't put people on the spot. If she asks about an opinion or to analyze something, she won't call on someone; she'll eventually spill the answer. If you're a senior you can eat in class.
Coming from someone who graduated from the Forbes No. 1 School in America, Ms. Lyons is a great english teacher. Nuff Said. Go Army. Beat Navy.
if you like english, this class might bug you a bit. doesnt encourage much critical thinking or analysis, just very basic cirriculum. also, she is not very helpful or approachable.
I am in awe of her uselessness in AP Lit. She is absolutely the worst teacher for English 4 honors/AP. I poured out my heart and soul onto the Personal Statements, hoping she would help me cut down superfluous fluff to focus on material that would help me shine, like other teachers did. Instead she circled a couple of words without explanation and the only thing she wrote was that I was over the word limit. I thought she was supposed to help me with english, not math. I'm also sure I've learned more math t
Easiest English Teacher Ever! Her Finals and Tests are like super easy, and you can BS the homework and still get credit if you fill the lines. She's really moody though.
Sometimes i feel shes pretending to be mean, but great english teacher...Rather haver her than the other teachers.
class is okay; test & finals SUPER EASY but never have i hate an english teacher so much shes very moody and mean
no chill time in her class at all; very moody most of the time, but there are those few days where shes cool and im one of the students she doesn't like; if youre going to school to learn, take her.
You can bs your hw cuz she doesnt check. what she really reads tho is your essays and that is about it. she is the hardest grader when it comes to essays. first non A on essay for me in english
You can totally bs her work and get away with it. At least for my class.
mrs. lyons teaching isnt great. shes not a good teacher. its a really easy A though. also HER ATTITUDE SUCKS! seriously, shes the rudest teacher ive met in my entire life. she's obnoxious& judgemental
Mrs. Lyons had some pretty lame rules for homwork and stuff, and her way of writing essays. but one good thing is you can always redo essys, and she was most of the time pretty cool and interesting.
She seems like she is mean but that is only to make sure the class doesnt goof off to much. She can be really nice or really mean. Romeo and Juilet great
Seems mean on the outside but the class is generally easy. Romeo/Juliet was the only hard part to memorize a whole paragraph the whole year. Do ur work 2 get A.
Had her in 00-01. Always gives a very low grade on projects, compared to other's work, and have to explain why I deserve more until she would give what i deserv
u people just do ur work and she wont be mean..ur dope mrs. lyons...ur nice and very helpful..just ignorant people who r whiny and stupid... haha
this is like a online chatroom for students and teachers....
one thing though, the class is pretty easy if you do your work, and mind your own business (i have to learn that the hard way :(
oh yea! i j o t e m: ddude
