A brilliant English teacher who treats the subject as well as her class very seriously. She's moody (good-humored and teasing one day to downright irascible and defensive another) so watch out...

Believe it or not, she can actually be friendly as long as you do not do anything wrong. But, the class is still extremely hard, if you spend a very long time studying, you can do well.

The first thing she said was, when I pointed out how I hate The Scarlet Letter due to it's long and boring run-on sentences, bursted out and demanded I retract the statement.

Filak grades hard and likes to give quizzes on the readings. She asks specific detailed questions. However; if you do your work you can easily get a B.
