The class is very unorganized. If she likes you, the class isn't so bad. Make sure you participate!
Easy class. As long as you participate everyday you'll be fine. Not a lot of essays, her class was focused on talking in groups about events in the books you read. Most people had a B+/A- average, but Barkin is pretty harsh when she's in a bad mood and her class was unorganized and unpredictable. Other than than she's decent.
Barkin is oblivious to any form of common core or teaching structure of any kind. As a student of her Creative Writing Class, expect a good grade, but, not a good experience. Barkin will not explain any question of clarity in her assignments because they are, apparently, simple to understand. I attend an arts school for CW so I have an idea of what SHOULD be taught to High School Kids. Barkin likes to teach her ideas because SHE is always right, a perfect, all-knowing, human being.
She really cannot teach. She arrives late to our classes, cannot explain her assignments, no experience in literature, yells very frequently and always makes you feel like your work is worthless.
She is strict at times and doesn't explain exactly what she wants. Then when you don't do what she wants she gets mad. A hard teacher to deal with.
just so not cool bro. like she makes me very angry. sometimes i just wanna leave her room in the middle of class.
I think she is a very good teacher. If she likes you, you will like her.She gave me A's when smarter kids got D's. She's very enthusiastic and try to get on her good side or you will be sorry.
I love her... but shes a terrible teacher and makes no sense!
Overall she is a horrible teacher. Her grading system is very inconsistent; sometimes I get an A on essays, other times I get a C. I never know what to expect on her tests. She is not very helpful either. I asked her some que
She is great if she likes you, but if she doesn't...you better watch out
She's a nice person, but she gives tons of hw and gets mad when you ask questions sometimes. Get on her good side and read the book and you'll do fine
shes a terrible teacher.i havent learned one thing in her class and she gets ridiculously angry over nothing.her class is the most miserable of my day.
I loved her. everyone else in my class though she was weird, but i could'nt see it. She was an exceptional teacher, and very fun to be around. just hand in your homework on time. ;)
loved mrs.barkin as a person but she needs some work as i teacher. organization deff. need work. a little out there at times but that makes her HER. ALOT of acting activites, most are fun but are a little much at times.
she's a very cool lady. i love her so much, and she's the advisor for the yoga club!
mrs. barkins pretty flippin sweet. i get mad at her when it comes to projects and grading but for the most part shes cool and i like her.
i love mrs. barkin. i learned a lot from her and she was exceptionally nice. and pretty.
a complete space cadet...I do not know how she's allowed to teach
Very easy class bc you dont do much.If you turn everything in on time you will do fine.She does get moodswings,but your grade can jump 3 letter grades if your on her good side.
I handed in a paper on time and she counted it late because SHE couldn't find it herself so she decided to give me a 60/70 for her lack of organization skills. unfair to me!!!UGH!!
Her mood swings are scary. She seems nice most of the time, but underneath she is very angry and aggressive.
She's awesome! She teaches really well. I learned a lot from her and she's very fair. She's also caring and extremely friendly.
lol what a joke class that was... her grading system makes absolutely no sense what so ever its ridiculous
look, plain and simple, you do the work, you get a good grade, she is really nice
She likes me so i dont mind her...but if she doesnt like you...you are in for a whole slew of unreasonable grades. Also homework is everything so do it all!!!
Horrible as an English teacher. Does not know what she is talking about. Refuses to be proved wrong.
The woman is a nut job. She has these amazing bursts of sudden unexplainable rage, you never know if you should duck or run away.
When no one else is around she is really mean but when people come she is all nice and phony
