As of 2016, Mrs. Elkind is retired and no longer at Garden School.
And that is just a shame. Mrs. Elkind is one of the best teachers I have ever had. She was passionate and knowledgeable, which are traits all teachers should have. She was creative, adventurous and a pleasure to talk to. Her classes required full attention and focus. She gave projects and injected lively inputs into her teaching. I wish more teachers could be like her.
I have to say how blessed I am to have her this year. Mrs Elkind thank you so much for the extra help you give me every week. You are a very nice history teacher!
She's a great English teacher, yeah, she gets off topic but at least she's coherent, unlike some other teachers.
Too self-absorbed to realize that there is a world outside of Garden School. Ironic, considering that she taught me the definition of "microcosm". Avoid her classes whenever possible.
Stop the peanut butter story, stop picking favorites, and no one cares about your kids. All of it gets really old really fast.
she is a decent teacher. i adore her intelligence. nevertheless, she gets off topic, but at least all she says makes a lot of sense.
i really like her lessons, and its really fun wen she gets off the topic and we talk about other interesting things
she's a good teacher but she always keeps us late after clas and we are always late to lunch because of her 5 hour lesson
