I had Caston for 9th grade honors. I guess she's pretty nice and tries to be helpful but SHE DOES NOT TEACH YOU ANYTHING. Mrs. Caston actually screwed me over because she forced us to write our essays in a very formulaic manner and if you didn't follow the formula, she would give you a bad grade. She is a fairly easy teacher however, if you have her for english 9H good luck doing well in english 10H because she does not prepare you at all for it. I have leal for english now and im dying

She's a nice person but not the best teacher. Unless you are her favorite you will never get a 100% on anything. Typically gives B+ even if you did all the work. Tests can be hard because she picks really obscure quotes. Not much homework so that's a plus.

Honestly unless she likes you, good luck passing that class. She is extremely biased and just rude to her students. No one understands how she grades and barely anyone knows what to do for papers and projects. One of the worst teachers I've ever had in my life. Just awful

Her class are pretty boring and you usually have to write at least three pages for anything in order to get a full score, but otherwise the class is pretty easy. She doesn't give much homework, and you get a lot of time to write the essays. When you're reading LotF, make sure you memorize all the chapter titles, don't procrastinate on the dialectical journal, and know the obscure facts like 'who threw rocks at who but didn't actually try to hit him?'

She's really not as bad as everyone makes her out to be. She may not be the coolest/most exciting teacher, but she's always available if you have any questions and she's good at getting back to you over email. She does grade quantity over quality a lot though. And she's really big on exact formatting/organization of essays. Go in at lunch and ask her for help.

I have just finished her class and I think I almost cried from relif. If you get her, switch out man. It sucks. If she doesn't like you, there is no way you can do well in her class. She is so fliping biased it is ridiculous, and she is extremely condecending towards students. And she can't even teach. I really only learned that my essay writing skills suck. And I learned that from peer editing.If you are stuck in her class, have fun, because she doesn't explain things either.

Finished her class today, thank heavens. She is an impatient, condescending, and frustrating teacher to have. She treats students terribly rudely and gives them attitude. Super hard to talk with her, and grades extremely hard. She honestly does not provide any logical input on whatever question you ask her, and she is a HUGE HYPOCRITE. She had us analyze this stupidly long essay about simplicity, and she overcomplicates ALL instructions given to students. One of the worst teachers i've ever had.

She'a b*tch...it's simple. If you ever get Mrs. Caston, be prepared for favoritism, subjective grading, and wasted hours of learning nothing.

I really like Ms. Caston as a person, but her class is difficult. I'm currently in her AP English Composition class. She doesn't assign homework that often, but when she does you have to write A LOT
