Dr. Beagle is a very good teacher and knowledgeable, but she is one-sided and doesn't like to accept other students' ideas when she doesn't agree with them. She does teach many things that you really need in life, and they will stick to you because of how strict with grading she is. She teaches kids how to work HARD for their grades. If you have a B, I"m not surprised. Good luck in her class.

A great English teacher, but she can be quite sassy. Beagle has her favorites, and it is very obvious. However, she is retiring this year, so if you didn't want her, great. But she was one of the best English teacher on campus, a graduate from Stanford she is very knowledgable.

Dr. Beagle is a knowledgeable teacher, so it is hard to get As in her class. It is rare to see an essay graded with an A, since she has strong opinions, if she doesn't like it...you will expect a B. Not to mention, she has her moods; sometimes she is super friendly, but there comes some times when she is really rude. Make sure you pay attention during class, because if she calls on you and you get the answer wrong, she will assume you weren't paying attention; and it is embarrassing...

SHE KNOWS TOO MUCH. Very passionate about the English language, which is great and useful for students, but also bad for some grades. Dr. Beagle is such a intelligent teacher, but she is difficult if you do not know anything.

She's mean, not very helpful, and very condescending.
Best day of school was when the whole class (except for 1 girl) walked out on her in a conga line on the last day of senior year.

I sincerely feel for you if you're stuck in her AP Lit class. It's the worst thing possible when you're afflicted with senioritis due to the Beag's excessive workload and harsh grading. Still, she is an incredibly engaging and knowledgeable teacher.

She is an excellent teacher! Although she may not be the easiest, her class was super helpful. She was nice, just don't get on her bad side or else you'll be screwed. I learned tons from her class, although the work load is excessive. Great teacher, regardless. Thanks, Dr.! (btw, I had her for my freshmen english class.)

if she can cut the workload in half, she'll be the best english teacher ever. But since she gives so much homework, and honestly, right now the work are nothing but busywork crap, it's very hard to appreciate the fact that she can teach well.

Dr. Beagle's class is challenging--I had her last year for regular English, a class that normally is an easy A. However, with Dr. Beagle, I had to work for an A-. The first week of school, there were about 3 students that transfered out into Dooley's class. Beagle is a fair grader though, and she pushed me to become a better writer, even if I only ended up getting an A- in her class. If you ever get her, be prepared to work your butt off for a regular english class. It sounds dumb, but it's worth it. :)

Great English Teacher - Work load is excessive. I learned the most English in this class than any other class in high school. Don't take this class for the grade because chances are yours won't be high; do it for improvement.

Definitely picks her favorites. She doesnt like teachers pets but doesnt like quiet students either. Matter of fact, she only likes smart girls. If you decide to do all of her work, you will learn something though.

Dr. Beagle needs to take a major chill pill sometimes. She has the ability to make one feel incredibily stupid for asking questions. But she can make class extremely amusing.

We students need a little criticism every once in awhile, especially if it's constructive. We just have a difficult time accepting that and listening.
