She is my favorite for so many reasons. SO first off she goes deeper with poems, stories, etc which makes the class really fun. Secondly, she gets her point across. If she wants you to know every capitol in the world, YOU'LL KNOW IT. She's funny, too and I learn the most with her then in any of my classes. Finally, this is bit more personal, a friend was going through some rough times and she helped her. Mrs. Baldwin was a friend to talk to. She's an amazing person.

This woman has and will probably forever be one of my FAVORITE English teachers! Last year I was in her period 2 class( her favorite) and there was NEVER a dull moment! She really helps you with perfecting your writing by using different techniques and if you still needed help she would be happy to work with you after school. Yes, she does gains high expectations from certain students and can get a little off topic with hilarious jokes & re-enactments. BUT, she really does prepare you for HS!

Personally, I loved her class. She was really good at teaching and knew everything well. She can get strict and crazy, but that's a good thing. She treats her students like adults, not like kids she has to teach things to for her job. She truly is and was an amazing teacher :)

I had Ms. Baldwin in 8th grade (2 years ago) for English. She made such a lasting impact on me that, now that I have Mr. Valassidis, I still employ similar writing techniques as in her class. She is an amazing actress, a wonderful women with so much passion for her students. Do not slack off, do not procrastinate. Meet her for help, and you WILL succeed. Good luck to you all! If you work hard and be the best person you can be, getting a solid (or even high) A is within reach!

She can be a bit overwhelming at times, but maintains an energetic learning environment. She seems to mainly focus on useful information, rather than bore us with topics we will never need to know. One of the better school 4 teachers!

Mrs. Baldwin is an interesting teacher. I have her for Drama not English so I think that it is a bit of a different expierience. But she is very nice and does very well in making the class fun! she also is EXTREMELY dedicated to drama and very dedicated to making sure we all take the class seriously and learn about drama. This is wat i love about her. The one down side is that she is a little harsh. She also comes across very hard if you make one mistake she will point it out to the whole class.

insensitive to feelings of others, not very helpful... her 8th grade promotion speech for class of 2010 was embarassing for everybody, she yells and growls at the class to make a point... i don't feel as though i learned anything except not to give her caffeinated tea.

Good and unconventional teacher, but can be moody and somewhat rude at times...like during out promotion speech. She will probably improve your writing, though - and gives you a fair amount of freedom. Tries many different methods - some work, some don't, but all in all, I think I learned a lot in her class. Although she can be grumpy, particularly during the first few periods, and does to an extent play favorites, I do not regret being in her class.

She is a great English teacher, and changed the way I write. However, she has many moody days throughout the year, and some of her methods are better than others. Things such as the Shakespeare tape simply did not help our class understand. Tends to slightly favor the students who have B's and work somewhat hard...and she did not favor me, that's for sure. And her speech for our class was rather long and rude, the parents applauded because she was finally done. Once again, great teacher though.
