She seems very nice in person,but in a student environment,she puts you through the paces,and you have to do every single little thing otherwise she won't accept it.

She is cool and really cares about the students that care. She let me re-write my essay after my Mom emailed to her about the rules, she is patient and understands. I have to try harder in her class and take it as a challenge.

Mrs. Walsten seems nice but i think she is a complete phony. She grades everyone unfairly and apparently likes to give out a lot of F's. I should have swiched out a long time ago.

She scares me a bit. She seems nice but it seems as if she might snap at any moment. She also does not explain things well at all.

Mrs. walsten talk to long, she likes to hear herself talk so she will repeat a sentence five tmes, and then her students get bored raise their hands to ask questions, that would actually help, but she refuses to call on them. And she is too stuk on her MLA format.

Ms. Walsten is one of the best teachers I've had. Just because you other posters are too lazy to do any of the work or pay attention, doesn't mean she's bad!

Walsten doesn't know how to teach a class..even though she gives a lot of extra credit. She needs to figure out how to teach and then learn how to grade papers.
