In 2016, Ms. Sorensen won the "Inspirational Teacher of the Year" award. The most compassionate teacher I have ever met, many students call her "Mama Sorensen." While I had her for creative writing (and not for English), she always provided thoughtful feedback and made everyone feel welcome, even if they weren't willing to share their writing (she never pressured them to).

Positives
-Sweetest/cutest/most caring person ever
-Genuinely concerned for her students
-Willing to work one-on-one with students
-Easy class
Negatives
-Tends to give students all A-/B+ on most essays/writing assignments w/o full analysis (usually like 2-3 people get As)
-Disorganized (gives assignments back very late, if at all)
But the positives outweigh the negatives... I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LYNDA

Lynda Sorensen is one of those rare teachers who makes class a highlight of the day. While she certainly is not afraid to mention her own beliefs, she creates a safe space for any and all opinions, and allows dissent, debate, and disagreement. Though she does not focus on spelling, grammar, or basic analytical skills, she teaches students to go a step further, synthesize, and contribute a piece of themselves to their work

I had Ms. Sorenson my sophomore year. All I can say is she is a true hippy loves to talk about her political views and imprint them on her students. That aside although she is one of the nicest ladies I've ever met she knows jack about teaching English. Horrendous teacher, great person, Easy A.
