This woman is the queen of busywork and is an absolute pain. She is unnecessarily difficult due to her tremendous workload and ridiculous grading scale. She has to realize that 1) this is not college, and giving us an 80 for something is not a "decent" grade in high school 2) respect must be earned: she is one of the most condescending teachers I've ever had. She has openly challenged students' intelligence in her AP classes of all places.

I really didn't get along with her. She was such a hard teacher and we wasted most of the class time. I wanted to learn. I wouldn't take her class again.

expects WAY too much-if your taking her class you will have to spend more time for it then all your others combined, even if the others are all honors.

I didn't really have Mrs.Thornton, but I frequented her chalkboard and I went on vacation with her for a week. That was a taste enough for her teaching.

Over 15 People dropped in our GT class and she does give the appearance of not being very supportive. Spent several classes talking about "being GT" and why we should drop.
