creative writing is a nice class, but dont miss a day that she grades for participation because if your not there she will automatically give you a zero. I went from a 100 to a 67 just because I was sick for one day.
Ms.Ries is deff. a great teacher. She might be a little different but hey thats not always a bad thing. she is a really nice person if you actually take time to talk to her, and not just judge her.
Ries is the coolest. She runs an awesome context publication, she makes students better writers & she upholds high standards for teaching. Disliked b/c SOME want 2 believe they're smart w/o work 4 it
She's nowhere near as intelligent as she think she is. She's a hack writer whose settled for teaching but constantly reminds you of her mild successes as a writer. Loves people she thinks are "loners"
Ms. Ries is so far a really great teacher. Mr. Webster was subbing for my class for her and surprised us a week before she came. The adjustment was easy. Her work is really good preparation for IB.
Awesome teacher. I can undertstand some of the negative she can be highstrung but she is also incredibly witty, funny, insightful and kind. I suggest you to get to know her personally.She really care.
shes a bad teacher. she doesnt check hmwk so the kids who do it dont seeem to bother anymore. shes a big hippie and puts too much emphasis on herself and journals. She doesnt kno how to conduct class!
Ms. Ries actually cares about her students and helps them adjust their school work around the rest of their lives. I think she's really fair that way, and even though she's tough, she's not unreasonable.
Ms.Ries is a wonderful teacher and person. She may come off as standoff-ish but thats a huge misconception. She has a huge heart and so much to offer. She is an inspiration in class and out-especially if you're a writer.
Ms. Ries is acually a really good teacher and fun person. Yes, at times it feels like your getting too much work thats really hard and exhaugsting to do, but it pays off during the year. she also starts preparing freshmen for ib, which is good for those planning to enroll in the program and bad for those who are not
demanding. can have you staring at your watch at times, but definitely smart and knows what she's doing. a lot of work, but I'm sure we're being well prepared for the ib tests
There has been alot of negative things said about ms. ries but people have to realize that she really is a good teacher and is alot better than most teachers in the school.
She's really nice and she knows what she's talking about. Her lessons sound like she actually planned them out instead of looking on sparknotes like some teachers.
Ms. Ries simply makes her students dread going to her class
Without knowing the scope of her depth/intellect, people tend to pass a lot of judgment on Ms. Ries. I personally believe she has much to offer, as both a ment
Lulling voice...deep and poetic. Seems as though she'd be interesting to converse with on a more personal level.
i like her. so you people that dont then just shut up.
She should give you homework when you say "to much" instead of "too much" Don't you guys get embarrassed?
tooooo much homework.... who cares about journal entries.
Yeah would be better off teaching little kids. Very nice person tough.
nice lady.. u should teach kindergarden though... boreing class
