Very strict about arbitrary rules. Don't even try to have a water bottle unless you're in debate. Lots of unnecessary work, aka word clues. That class was the bane of sophomore year. Nice sometimes...
She really loves the debate kids in her lang arts class. Even if you are a non-debater, just show that you are really trying and she'll be kind to you and help you.
Ms Watkins is one of the best teachers Ive ever had. Even though she might be tough, she encourages and rewards critical thinking, and outside of class she is so nice and laid back
I had her for LA the year before I started debate, and never found her to play favorites. She was extremely demanding, but shouldn't a teacher be?
Very mean. Gives candy to her fav student in front of the whole class w/o giving anybody else any. Unreasonably strict in enforcing the rules but will let u slide if ur in debate.
Play by her rules and follow instructions carefully and you'll find out that she is really caring, helpful, and an excellent teacher
The watkinator is alright in retrospect. She pushes you (stop cryin about it) doesnt play favorites with debaters, she converses with them to check up. Great
watkins is WONDERFUL. i love her so much. she is tough, but it is because she is pushing you to do your best. she is an amazing teacher, coach, and person.
One of my least favorite teachers of all time. She thinks she's better than everyone else and yells a lot. She did prepare me for AP Lit, however.
I had Watkins for both debate and language arts. Although I loved her actual class I hated her grading styles and I recognized her unfairness in playing favs.
She's ok... I enjoy making her mad so she doesn't really like me and she does play favs with her beloved debate students but she let me do the maze so she's ok.
People don't like Mrs. Watkins because she forces them to do their best. She is caring person and when her students get in the real world they will understand.
Make sure you do Word Clues right - 70 points off for not writing the LETTERS!!!
she is so hard. She plays favorites with the kids who had her for debate.
VEry tough teacher, which I don't mind. However, seh plays favorites, very much so.
I only have her for debate, but she does a really good job of helping people understand things, and if you give an effort, she'll do everything she can to help.
Watkins was one of three "W"itch LA teachers. She may grade essays hard, but she grades them RIGHT. Be thankful. She DOES play favorites, though!
I think I was the only one in my class who liked Ms. Watkins... granted, she's a tough teacher, but you can learn a lot.
only likes debate people and grades essays way too hard
Mrs. Watkins is a hard teacher but you learn a lot I think.
she's hard!! everything has to be just right or else you get major points taken off
Ms. Watkins seems to have lost the passion she once had for teaching. She plays favorites and does not like to help students,she is excessively brutal.
Her courses are indeed challenging, but she goes the extra mile to make sure her students learn the material worth learning. She's also a really nice personal.
