She's very immature and unprofessional. To me, it's quite obvious how insecure she is, therefore feeling the need to bring students down to feel better about herself. As for her skills as a conductor/musician, I don't think she's very well trained or very talented. She's not musical at all and she can't keep a steady beat. I think she made the right decision to leave.

Come on. Be easy. She isn't the best teacher, but bias exists in EVERYONE (don't deny it). I would say shes substandard with the other elective teachers, but MUCH better than other teachers i had for 7th grade (If you were a voyager or now part of the , you know the one). She has room for improvement. so far i have no specific complaints.

Mrs. Brown is WAY too strict about "talking" and "tuning." She never lets you talk out, even a small whisper she will yell at you.

Has favorites. Ok she smiles when she's yelling at you/ is mad at you and is kinda unfair sometimes. She also thinks her jokes are really funny and she assumes that she is a fun constructive teacher, but she talks about random things which is good to waste the period because overall in class you don't really do anything if you're advanced. She makes herself sound like a very good person so that you idolize her or something. Has favorite periods and if she doesnt like your period, you'll hate her.

It depends who you are on whether you would like her. If you are a beginner, you will love her (though she picks favorites), and if your advanced, you will hate her. She talks about her wedding ALL THE TIME. i had the unfortunate pleasure of being her student when she got married (the year she got married) and OMG she talked about it for MONTHS afterwards. She talks about her grad skool too much too, and if you are really good, she doesnt do much with you, just talks and gives easy music.....

she is so incredibly rigid and strict. she kept doing pop quizzes where you have to play in front of the whole class. had favorites; the first violins. a perfectionist. never really understood us or helped us out individually. if she doesn't like you, then be careful...

A really nice teacher, though she shouldn't have gotten rid of the old seating arrangement, it gave more motivation to practice.
