Mrs. Smith was the BEST before she retired.
Yes yes, she was confusing at times, but if you came in at lunch she would always help you.
The best english teacher I have ever had.
Thanks Mrs. Smith

Not good. Told our whole class how we weren't doing our project correctly while she neglected to teach us correctly. Bad teacher who will openly mock you in front of the class.

Unwilling to help, moves at own pace, often contradicts herself. I've learned more from her student aid in 3 1-on-1 sessions than I have with her for a whole quarter. Not a good teacher.

I LOVED Mrs. Smith. I looked forward to her class everyday. She is tough teacher, but she forms a great connection with her students when she gets too know them. In the beginning I actually strongly disliked her, but she really grew on me.

She can't give clear directions for her life and then is upset that no one followed her nonexistant instructions. She embarrases anyone who disagrees with her so when she asks a question the class is scared silent.

Incredibly strict and sometimes a little hypocritical, but a very good teacher. If you work hard in her class, you will learn a lot. That said, it is very difficult to get an A in her class.

Ms smith may be a hard teacher, but if you plan on taking AP english next year, definitely take her class. She actually gives genuine feedback unlike the other teachers.

she really tries to help out her students, but she can't communicate her ideas very well. There is no clarity in her assignments because she assumes we can understand what she has going on in her head and she just insults us when we ask questions because she believes what she is saying makes perfect sense. She makes class interesting though :)

Rare english teacher to emphasize grammar in high school! Hard grader, but really started to bring us away from the MCPS/SAT-style essays.

Very aggravating. All she does is either insult us or tell stories. The assignments are strange- she knows what she wants but none of the students do.

From my experience, she gave *some* unreasonable assignments and she assessed us on stuff that we did not cover. No joke. Not very often, but at times it was very frustrating.
