I used to hate ms Dougherty. Every time I walked into her classroom, my soul would die because i knew i could never measure up to her standards. But she taught me how to write an essay, and towards the end of year, she pulled me out of class to tell me how proud she was of my improvement. Because of her, i passed the AP lang exam and never got a chance to thank her before she passed away. R.I.P Mrs. Dougherty. The greatest teacher Suncoast will ever have.

Mrs. Dougherty was one of the best teachers I've ever had. She never gave up on you, no matter how helpless you thought you were in her class. She pushed us and made us work hard for A's and never gave out easy grades. My work ethic increased dramatically because of her class. Wish she'd be alive today to be my teacher. I'll miss her and won't forget the wisdom she gave me from being in her class. RIP Mr.s Dougherty, you will be missed dearly.

I thought I could come into her class freshman year and be a superstar in there, but in the most in your face way possible, she shut that dream down and brought me to reality. She was the toughest teacher I've ever had. I was lucky to manage a C in that class. HOWEVER, she honestly cared more about my class than we let her. I grew closer to her by working in the drama department. I then realized her love for us was measured by how far she pushed us. She's probably my favorite teacher for that.

Evil, not caring for her students. As a parent, she yelled at me on two separate occasions. She thinks she is on Broadway--but, no such luck! Frustrated and ill all the time out of the classroom may too much can not ever reach her to talk --she just yells even at her prinipal! With that said, she belongs at home not with students.

Mrs. Dougherty was by far one of the greatest teachers I have ever had period. She may be kinda sorta really crazy but everyone needs a little of that! She is a grown teenager with some of the greatest lectures, most interesting points of view, and will definitely help you pass the AP Lang exam if you take her teachings to heart. Sure the homework is rough but come AP exam time you will be on your knees thanking her!

Ms Dougherty is without a doubt the craziest, hardest, and most insane teacher i've ever had. It was the hardest class i've taken so far, but i have never learned so much from one teacher before. Her lessons on the pieces of literature are filled with passion, and are extremely informative. People complain about her class being impossible and how they can never get an A unless you're "naturally smart," but thats not true, if y

Based on the plays: She's an amazing visionary, but doesn't always translate it well to cast and crew without an assistant. However the productions are still tons of fun and marvelous to watch.

Ms. Dougherty is absolutely insane. She's disorganized, loud, doesn't wear bra's, and is one of the MOST amazing teacher's I have had in this lifetime. One has to see life in a different perspective to understand where this woman is coming form; her madness contributes to her genius. I don't even care if I pass the AP Lang exam, I feel blessed enough to have learned so much from her about writing and her philosophies on lif

Ms. Dougherty has the three main things I think a teacher needs to be great: passion, ingenuity, and caring. She is incredibly passionate about her subject-- about the novels we read and the plays we act out. The activities we do and questions we talk about come from her ingenuity. And for those that actually know her, she is incredibly caring. She likes to see you understand something better and roots for her students.

no matter how much you try, the best u can get in her class is a B...only the naturally smart get an A. her class is very unfair. she's okay as a person, but really needs to losen up on the dificulty level. she gets called down to the office a lot...maybe we should try and complain about the dificulty level...it seems as if shes already on the verge of getting fired. maybe the complaint will put more pressure on her?

Her class is just unfair. I mean, it's significantly times harder then the other langauge arts teachers. You will get a B in her class, while the other classes get A's with less effort. Her class is fun though, and she does teach you how to write critical essays.

So far, she really stressed me out. But I have a feeling she's going to help me in a long run. But she is a little too hard and needs to remember we are not college students.\: She's a great teacher, it's just she also should think about giving her students more help without whizzing through the work and lectures. We do need time to breathe.
