She is one of the best teachers I have ever had, yes she is hard, but at the same time if you want to improve yourself as a student... and ACTUALLY learn something she is spectacular. I have never learned more in a class than her, and she makes learning fun (not to mention her great sense of humor) She is by far the best teacher I have ever had
AP English with Mrs. Dean made me realize that I was a truly sucky writer (and that's coming from someone who's always wanted to be a writer). But it was FANTASTIC. She has high expectations of her students and she grades writing assignments pretty hard. Taking her class was one of the best things that happened to me in high school.
She is a GOOD teacher. Your mind will expand so much in this class and your writing will improve exponentially. She's brilliant and witty, but be careful not to let her sarcasm offend you. She truly cares about you on a personal level if you get to know her outside of class. Her actual tests are pretty easy, but she is ruthless when grading your writing. I never would have gotten as much from any of the texts we read without her guidance. If you put in the effort, you'll earn her respect.
She is very funny, and if you are a sarcastic student expect her to make fun of you. But it is all in good fun and we have a good time. Hardest class I have taken though! (AP Lang)
Probably the hardest class I took junior year (AP English Language) but it was worth it. She helped me improve my writing so much and I received a 5 on the AP exam. She's a caring person outside of class and wants the best for her students. If you're willing to put in the work, you WILL see results, you just have to be willing to be humbled.
Her class was hard, but she is really helpful, and I am glad I took the class.
This has got to be one of the hardest classes I have ever taken.
She is a little too harsh on grading, and gives too much work in too little time. I think she is a nice person and cares about her students, but is a tough teacher.
THIS WOMAN IS AMAZING. SHES SOOOO FUNNY AND IS A REALLY GOOD TEACHER.
hard class but excellent teacher. she can help you so much if you let her
Great teacher, very funny. However, I would not join her class if you want an easy A, you really need to work for it.
AP English Language is a hard class, but I feel that Ms. Dean really whipped us into shape. I really feel like I've learned a lot about writing from her. And she's totally chill... I slept in her class all the time and she didn't care. Be prepared for tons of sarcasm, because she's fluent in that language.
Keri Dean is a teacher that actually cares about you and your educational experience if you give her the time of day and apply yourself somewhat. She has a tough class because she wants to prepare you for college. If you want an easy A transfer out because you will have a workload. Overall she is a good person but she can constantly seem to be angry. Dont take it personal.
She is deffinately a tough teacher to start with, but she is preparing us for the real world. She gives off the tough, mean visual, but once you take the time to ask her for help, she is very nice. If you pass this class, then you are going to be able to pass high school with a breeze.
She is such a character. Very VERY sarcastic, and has an extremely dry sense of humor. Her class is sooo difficult, but I have never learned so much from one class. She is an AMAZING teacher and I can't thank her enough for how much help she gave me. Just don't take what she says personally (<--very important!!!), get any extra help from her when you can, and you'll do fine.
My oldest son learned so much in the two years that he had her as a teacher, and now my youngest son has her and she is still just as great at teaching him. Thanks Ms. Dean!
It is a ridiculously difficult class, but Ms. Dean herself is a great teacher. I love the sarcasm that i in just about everything she says. I don't think I can truly know how much i've learned this year until I'm out of the class, but my brother thinks that it was because of her that he is such a great writer.
I'm in college right now and I will tell you this lady freakin changed my life. I've never learned so much, analytical reading and writing skills are soooo much better simply due to her class jr year. My english teacher here thinks I'm amazing and so prepared... you'll never know how great she was tell you leave and go elsewhere and have something to compare your writing too. She also genuinely cares so much about her students, its amazing! I LOVE THIS WOMAN!
oh man this woman is so mad all the time. she hates 1st period with a fiery passion. even so she is a good teacher, but wait until afterschool to talk to her! much nicer then
I FREAKIN LOVE MS. DEAN. BEST TEACHER/CLASS EVER! never learned more in my life and it was interesting, challenging and unique, and she does so much
i've learned so much this year and even though she can be a bit much at times, i think it is the best class i've had at ihs
i HATE the kids in class who want to provoke her on purpose. can't they learn to behave maturely, like the juniors they're supposed to be? ms. dean is the best!
GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGREAT TEACHER~ AWESOME PERSON! really hard class though, but learned sooooo much, robey is a JOKE
She is so hilarious!! A little scary at times (her sarcasm is pretty sharp), but you have to appreciate how much she cares about her students.
hmm..don't think she liked me, but i did well on the ap test. her constant sarcasm gets old after the first week of school. her class was harder than null's.
Ms. Dean cares so much about her students... shes hard and sarcastic but you gotta love her
