She's very smart and you will learn a lot in her class. She's a cool lady and will help you improve your writing. I definitely recommend her class.

Dr. Moore's class is the best English class I have ever taken. Not because it is easy as most students like to base their judgments on but because it has pushed me to think and grow in ways I never have before and inspired me to have a greater passion for literature. Perhaps her class is simply too difficult for high school and people are too fragile to accept her criticism. If you think her class is "stupid" you should try to look at where the problem may truly lie...

Personally, I really enjoyed Dr. Moore. She is an incredibly smart teacher who helped me expand my thinking and intellectual curiosity. I know that everyone doesn't like her, but I understand why. As students of Niskayuna High School we have never been challenged the way we're challenged in Dr. Moore's class. Most kids who take her class just aren't at the level they should be for the curriculum and her difficult teaching demands. All in all, 8/10, would recommend to a friend.

Absolutely terrible if you get her drop the class immediately. She's extremely unorganized, rude, and condescending. If you say or write something she doesn't agree with she automatically hates you and gives you terrible grades for everything no matter how hard you work.

Her class has given me chronic depression and has made me question the corrupt education system in this country. DO NOT take any of her classes! She is extremely condescending and thinks she's god's gift to the English language. AVOID AT ALL COST, you will thank yourself later.

She can be a little unclear and the class is definitely difficult but it is very interesting! She is very realistic which can cause people to dislike her but she is funny and is trying hard. In AP 12 you learn a lot that is applicable to college and life.

She is the worst teacher ever. I am in college now to become a teacher and I feel the need to email her and thank her for teaching/showing me how NOT to be a teacher. She is a bully to students and is very rude. Constantly put me down told me to drop, when i did she said i wasn't smart enough. I would not recommend taking a class with her. If Dr. Moore reads this, thank you for teaching me how not to be a teacher when i grow up. You are the a great example of what a teacher should never be like!

PhD in what? I'm still not sure. She gossips about the district a lot. She practically shows up in her pajamas and you can see her nipples in everything. When she picks favorites its usually the kids who communicate with her and show that they are actively seeking to understand the assignments. The trick is to befriend her and you'll at least pass. Don't expect compliments on your work, just do the assignments and get it over with.

She is the worst english teacher I have ever had. She bullied me on a daily basis, gossiped about me behind my back to other students, and denied me help when I asked. Further more she doesn't entertain any opinions other then her own. Unless you suck up to her you have about a c average in her class. She dresses inappropriately her assignments/grading is unclear. If you have her first block don't be late unless your expecting some spontaneous stage letters in the mail. SHE NEEDS TO BE FIRED.

I really enjoyed Dr. Moore's class (12 AP). She's one of the smartest and most well qualified teachers in the whole school. She expects you to back up everything you argue and has always helped me outside of class which I now am thanking the heavens for at the liberal arts college I now attend. Also, last time I checked, being a feminist and outspoken wasn't such a bad thing, in fact it created really great discourse in class. She doesn't suffer fools gladly.

I had her for English 12 ap. She bullied me in the class, talked about me to other teachers in the building and threatened me and flat out told me I wasn't smart enough to be in her class. she is a complete witch, dresses inappropriately and is a very hard teacher. she needs to be fired already. Just letting you know she is nice in the beginning but then turns into a huge witch!

The worst teacher I have ever had. She is a disgusting person inside and out. She calls her self a professional but comes to class completely under dressed. She has no respect for people who have different views than her. She is rude to most of her students, but she has a select few she favorites. If you are a student in her class who she does not like, she will grade all your papers very hard. She gave me a C on a paper I worked so hard on and didn't have a single nice thing to say about it

Terrible person in every way. Today, we had to bring 50 I believe statements to class. She told us we had to pick one and write an experience that made me believe it. I chose "I believe we should be able to choose what we learn in high school." I went on to talk about how I don't need to know certain topics for the field I want to get in and she told me that I'm close minded and stubborn. She went on to tell me I can't believe this because I'm not an adult and don't know if I will use the skills

She definitely taught me how to deal with difficult, unhelpful and all around bad teachers, which is a good skill in college, so I thank her for that. Otherwise, I don't thank her for much else and wish I didn't take her class. Go for SUPA not AP!

Is the worst. Often factually incorrect; don't believe anything she says until you fact check it, especially when it comes to teacher's benefits. Workload too heavy, pointless. You will get poor grades unless you emulate her. The best thing that could happen is if everyone dropped her classes, so then she wouldn't be able to teach despite tenure. Wait for college and a good lit teacher; I spent most of my excellent college lit course undoing the damage she did. Encourages students to not take AP

She is very intimidating and does not seem to have a clear plan to her teaching. We have yet to read a book this year in AP english and have written few papers. We have though, created a comic book which really improved my writing skills. Not. She assigns a ridiculously unnecessary amount of work, usually jst for the sake of giving us more to do. She tries to force her views on her students and if you dont express those views in seminar then she doesnt respect your opinion or acknowledge you have spoken.

Moore is an academic personality teaching high school kids who, for the most part, don't care. Care, and you will excel and love her class. She assigns a lot of creative writing, which is rare and, frankly, phenomenal.
