I had her last year and I'll be honest - it was my least favorite class I ever took in middle school. Actually, maybe tied with Mr. Nichols... For starters, she obviously plays favorites. There are a few students she will always call on, and nobody else. I raise my hand almost every day, and she ignores me. Next, she is a REALLy harsh grader, If she doesn't agree with something you write, she will take points off. I went from an A english student to a B-. No more room, so this ends my rant :(

She is definitely an interesting person. I had her last year, and it is very important to become a favorite. Her grammar lessons were very helpful, but she choses 3 or 4 people to call on for the whole year (for grammar lessons). I was not one of those people. I raised my hand for almost every grammar lesson, but she barely ever called on me. For other things, she calls on a larger variety of people (but she has a go to). She is extremely opinionated and disagreeing with her is not an option.

Mrs. Ross knows what she is talking about, but is not entirely respectful towards all of her students. Her conversations are insightful and she motivates us to participate. She is a harsh grader and will only accept most of the writing if it agrees with her opinion. She and I have a great relationship, which is important in having a successful year.

If you disagree with her, she will mark your paper incorrect. She assigns about 10 books on the holicaust and her 'central questions' are not provocative. She wants us to be insightful, but it has to be something she agrees with. While she taught us a lot of grammar, if you ask a question she often cannot answer it. She says she will search it up and she never does. She always says to a student in my class, "Please, ask me a question I can answer."

I honestly do not know why so many people hate Mrs.Ross. She is very sweet and inspires great conversation about the books we read. Also, the grammar books you make in her class will benefit you in the future. We have a great relationship, but you have to do well in her class.

Ms ross taught us very useful things for high school and later, but the timing of her homework and essays are ridiculous. We had too much work near the end of the year but she piled on a huge assignment with one week to go along with the final project. ALso, the homework was almost never posted on her eboard...

She's a great teacher if you pay attention in her class. She says some of the funniest things I've ever heard. If you don't like to pay attention, then good luck. The only way to pass her class is to pay attention or participate in a way that's advantageous to the whole class. Also, study up on your grammar, she LOVES IT!!
