She is probably the best teacher i have ever had. even though I actually understand her and her sassy sarcasm, I think that some people may not understand her cleverness. I think that who ever will have her or who ever has her, will enjoy her as much as I have this year :):):):):) <333333333

Though I understand her sarcastic humor a lot of people did not. That can be a problem for kids when they ask if they have to turn in a paper tomorrow and she answers "No...." and they don't pick up

My tips- do the brownie thing suggested below, and remember, classes aren't really important, it's all about time management at home. Start long-term projects when she gives them to you, don't stop.

If you don't do stupid things (talk in class, act like an idiot) she isn't to bad. Note 2 u people who haven't had the portfolio yet, when you start work on it BRING A BROWNIE 2 CLASS EVERY DAY.
