She just tells us how to do stuffies, assigns us a bunch of stuff to do, and then goes back to her seat. I've heard from another student that she really watches videos and slacks off, as she once showed the class a video of kittens.
Useless worksheets, lessons, and seriously, I do not need to Have 10 minutes of my life wasted by her explaining HOW TO RESEARCH THINGS. Forces us to work in groups for the dumbest things. It's a boring and useless class but otherwise super chill way to end the day.

It's a good day to be a favorite. I love it when there's a sub, can't deny. Her assignments are useless and she even made up this alternative assignment to replace reading A Tale of Two Cities.

One of the greatest teachers any student who wishes to prepare themselves for the real world to have. Very difficult and challenging but fun and what she teaches is highly practical for the real world.

Doesn't let you get away with much which I guess makes sense. She's very fair despite what others have written. Ms. Ruszel cares a lot about her students. Makes you want to try harder.

for those who often complain about diagramming sentences should know that despite its uselessness in the outside world, it helps you define what kinds of words there are...

Ms Ruszel is a great teacher. Despite her efforts in AP English class, her methods of teaching might be a bit tangential to the AP exam. Earlier preparation on writing might help.
