First, her grading is extremely slow, so you have no idea what you are going to end with for the quarter. She is an extremely hard grader and will mercilessly destroy your grade. She has her favorites, the cross country people; if you are not one of the cross country people, you will not end up with a good grade. Abandon hope all ye who enter here.

Mrs. Kiernan's class is fantastic if your a quiet girl. It seems that if you act like you're not too interested in the subject (or her jokes), you won't receive a good grade, regardless of your literary analysis skills. This class was just so frustrating because you sit in silence as she rambles, and you pray to God that you are on her good side before the last two days of the quarter, when most grades are "assigned," rather than earned.

Mrs. Kiernan is very kind, knowledgeable, and reasonable. Her class is a lot of work, but if you complete all of itl you will have a good grade. Her tests are hard, but they don't count for a large percentage of your total score. Very chill.

the class is pretty laid back and fun, but the tests were *rediculous*. The questions are completely illogical, and you have to choose "her answer."
