How long has she been teaching this course????? Ha! You would think she would have a set curriculum by now. She is so confusing and she has no clue what shes doing. Why is this woman a teacher. Her grading is terrible and she doesn't teach us anything useful that we could use on the AP we haven't even read books this year that were even worth understanding the deeper meaning and were simply rushed through. PS SHE ALWAYS MAKES THE CLASS READ OUT LOUD AND PRESENT. Like i can read fine thanks.

She is incredibly rude. She treats her students as inferior and incompetent and acts like she is the most amazing human to walk the earth. She does not grade appropriately and does nothing to help students. The only thing she had taught me is how NOT to teach.

Terrible AP english teacher. That class was a painful to sit through and was a waste of time every time. None of us were prepared for the AP exam. Students that took regular english scored higher. She basically wants to teach everyone how to be a journalist. She was always absent traveling, leaving us with the same TERRIBLE substitute. Probably the worst teacher I've ever had.

She really does know what she's doing. She could have prepared me for the AP a little better though.

she only cares about her precious newspaper club and the ridiculous Cornell essays! even when we have a regular class day, she spends the first 15 minutes talking to one of her favorites. after that she gets into the lesson and rambles on about the topic that we are on which can take up to 20-30 minutes.when we read any kind of novel, for example "Great Gatspy" or our summer killer "Grapes of Wrath" she over anylizes every small detail of the book and wants us to tell her why the author wrote it

She's one of the nicest english teacher that I ever had, but, in regards to preperation for the AP, she lacked more than a bit...

Pretty nice lady most of the time but horrible teacher. She taught an AP class but she didn't teach for the AP... or the Regents. Avoid taking her class.

I give her credit for being a nice person, but not the greatest teacher. We didn't focus much on the AP essays and ignored the Regents essays almost completely. If you can avoid her, I envy you.

BOOOOOOO! Just rambles on abut the same thing every class. Very unclear about what she wants. Sometimes i think the stuff she wants us to come up with is too much weak, wishy-washy B.S.

Worst Teacher I've ever had. Gives horrible assignments that often are wrong. For an AP class, I feel incredibly unprepared for the AP and its in a week.
