She is a hard grader, but she is still a very good teacher. I definitely have learned a lot in her class. Even though she may not be my favorite teacher, she is undeniably of my best teachers.

She is a slow and hard grader. There are things that she loves to see in essays that will guarantee mid to high grades. During class, discussions usually get off topic, but they help so much.

SUCH A HARD GRADER. shes ridiculous however she IS very fair. Make sure you go in to see her and pester her as much as possible because thats how you get good feedback. idk i really hope i get an A this semester but overall, i think she nitpicks wayy too much and needs to relax.

she takes forever passing back stuff. her essays are impossible. she has favorites. for vocab tests, she never let us go over them in class, so then when combined vocab tests would come around, everyone would fail. She would always have funny stories in class though.

She is a tough essay grader. The highest I got on my essay was a B+. But, she does a good job on giving hints on what we are supposed to write on essays. Overall, very tough grader.

The problem is that there is a lot of emphasis on a certain special formula for a paper, but that's really not how a paper should be written. i was so caught up in writing a correct paper that i lost most of my voice (which i have a lot of naturally)
