These people need to CHILL it is HS drama not Broadway. If you want an intensive program do it externally this is a class for people with 0 experience as well remember that. There is a lot of down time so it will be a fun class as long as you make friends with the classmates. She is super nice as long as you do not spend the class on your iPad and engage in conversation. It is an easy A and a fun introduction to drama! Super laid back class besides for the people who take it too seriously!
Okay. In freshman year, I was one of her favorites. She trusted me with tasks that she needed done, and I would do them for her. Then in sophomore year, she decided that she didn't like me anymore (for no reason; I am always respectful to my teachers). She doesn't cast according to talent or fit. She gives parts to her favorites, and those students are usually undeserving of the lead roles she gives them. If you want to pursue drama, save yourself some time and do Dream Team, PYT, or CMT shows.
Great director, I really appreciate how invested she is into every show she puts on
Great teacher one of the best ive had
Ms. Rose has been my director over the past few years no I have learned all of my acting skills from her. She is always very supportive from me and I know she's always rooting for me when I hit the stage. She is also very good at forcing me to analyze whatever character I am playing in order to have the best performance possible.
Amazing Teacher don't listen to the not smart people below who are just mad that they failed her easy amazing class
I like drama but not this class
Ms. Rose is a horrible Drama teacher. She uses your inside class behavior to grade you on your auditions for her plays. I now will not be able to fulfill my life's goal of becoming an actor, becasue she gives me feedback like "unable to concentrate during class" and "not intelligent" instead of proper feedback, such as, "wrong pitch for song" or "bad dancing". Ms. Rose is not liked by most of Saint Francis and I'm surprised she's not been fired already. I hate drama thanks to her!
She doesn't do any interesting plays. She is only nice to people she likes. Pretends to like other people but it is obvious the way she picks on them. She is not open to any suggestions to improve her productions...very self centered and thinks she is always right...The class is not much better either...don't really like her.
Laura's been a great drama teacher for me. She's used many mainstream musicals in order to have large audiences show up. She's taught me a lot.
I was one of her favorites and stars. I still think she was awful. I assume nothing has changed.
I had Laura Rose as a drama teacher about 15 years ago, and it's alarming to see that her ineptitude and idiocy has continued to blossom.
She made me dislike drama, even though I used to love it.
Alright so...I guess many people don't really like her. But then again, I think its safe to say that her class is very very easy. True she has her favorites. But if you listen you're fine.
doesnt know SQUAT. has favorites, mean to everyone else. always chooses mainstream musicals because doesnt have the guts or knowledge to read an interesting play once in a while. unopen to others ideas, you have to kiss up to her to get a good grade
I came to St. Francis for Drama & dropped out of her program. Very bad reputation with theater kids. If you want a good drama dept, get ride of her. Very disrespectful. Ruined my St Francis experience
ms rose ruined my st francis expirience. i hate her. i love dramam but i jsut cant do it wiht her there as the director. she is inexpirienced, selfish, and HORRID
Awful teacher. Extremely mean and unconcerned about her students.
Awful teacher. Discouages kids and squashes them instead of encouraging them. Has favorites, likes to create "stars" at the expense of the other kids. Doesn't belong in a high sch.
i love you mrs. rose....its true she has her favorites, but really its drama...wow hard can it be???
ms. rose is very clear and you are never bored because you learn some new skill or activity every class. you can tell she knows her stuff and is interested hers
Ms. Rose has no idea what she's doing. She made me feel like I was hopeless in drama without even attempting to help me. Avoid her!
