She wasn't the worst teacher I've ever had, but she taught me nothing. I did enjoy the books we read in her class though. I hate the way she has you do annotations and the way she grades is pretty stupid. Also, she makes you redo things so many times, but doesn't really give you any feedback as to what's wrong with it. If you do have her and can't transfer out, here's some advice : KEEP EVERYTHING. She'll tell you at the beginning of the year. Do not throw anything away.

Overall, Brehm is the worst english teacher that I've ever had. Gives little to no feedback on your work and she waits until the last minute to put up the grades. She gives an assignment and doesn't collect it for weeks and then spontaneously tells us that it's due.

She's one of the hardest teachers I have ever had, but she definitely happened a lot. I was a part of the honors class got zeroes on the catcher in the rye notes and we were all pissed off, and the work she gave was a lot but in all honesty she got us ready for senior year and college even if it was a year away. Stay on her good side, participate, actually read. DON'T COPY HOMEWORK FROM ONLINE OR FROM OTHER PEOPLE!! Seriously though, she's a good teacher.

Ms. Brehm is one of the most unique teachers in Fort Hamilton. She tends to either give no homework, or an entire novel with a million chapter notes and questions. She also is very spontaneous as to when she collects her assignments. However, she is a wonderful person. She's very air headed and lazy, but is quite kind to her students and plays along with them. As long as you are nice and respectful to her, and start her work early, you'll be fine in her class.

Love her she is so sweet and if you do her work pay attention(like you are supposed to ) you should be fine. Although she makes you read a book in the time span of a week it helps for her tests and you will be able to pass her class with a 90+ no problem. good luck and may Sidney carton Brehm be ever in your favor :)

Can't teach and gives a lot of hard work that she expects us to complete in a day and also has us reading a full book over a weekend with a lot of questions and gives us notes for each chapter as well. Don't recommend this teacher

Worst teacher ever, she gives a tough work and collects it a month later! I just can't stand her sometimes. She also can't teach and her tests are really long and is constantly yelling and so much work and is also a strict grader. If you get her I suggest you transfer out if you have her ASAP!

She never teaches and makes us read on our own. Makes us finish one book with annotations for every chapter + 100 + questions + Vocabularies in just one week. It was supposed to be a break but she gave us a massive amount of work without thinking we had other classes. She also goes ahead so she can just chill in class while we do all the learning by ourselves. She give zeros out to the people she hates.

If you don't wait until last moment to do her work, she's not a bad teacher. She helps train you for college work, and also teaches you a life lesson about what happens when you procrastinate a heavy assignment. Her tests aren't very difficult and as long as you do the work, you'll get above a 90

Taking this class is a joke. She doesn't teach you much. She throws a whole load of assignments at you & tells you it is due the next day. But on the next day, she tells you, it is due next week. Or she gives you an assignment that is due next week but you walk into her class on the next day, she tells you it is due today & not next week. Her assignments are due whenever she feels it. There is no such thing as a legit "due date" in her class.

Sorry guys. She's bad news. Her voice is kinda annoying. Her grading policy makes no sense and is very unfair. Makes fun of her students for eating junk even though she doesn't look like she's in he best shape. But she does care about her students on a personal level or at least pretends to care. I had her junior year and she loaded us with mountains of work at times.

Dont panic. Well... you could. Ms. Brehm is a unique teacher. If you cannot survive her class, you probably cannot survive college. She does not hold your hand like a little baby. She may be an unorganized and heavy-giving-work teacher, but she does train you to become more responsible for your own work. She also emphasizes on current events; you should know at least whats going on in your world. Nevertheless. She is very nice, generous and munificent.

She can be quite unorganized so you need to be on top of any work you give to her. Meaning you need to properly label your papers with your name, pd of class, and have everything stapled and high lighted. Easier for both you

At first, you might think her class is boring. Then, you'll grow to like her. She's actually really nice and lenient. I was supposed to fail her class due to my my last marking period grade and latenesses, but she passed me and told me it was a "gift" from her.
