IB has great English teachers, but she tops them all. Having her for English and ToK, she's great. She's funny, willing to listen to ppl, up to date, just overall a great teacher.

I was her Rocket Corps, so I never HAD her class, but she was awesome. She is really nice, and her class seemed very clear, and well geared towards her audience.

Once when we were making Mme. Bovary cake (gross on the inside, delicious on the outside?) for a presentation, we called oldies 100 and requested songs be dedicated to Ms. Shay, at 3 am easily. Awes!

A good teacher if you never challenge or question. Otherwise, be aware of her grading policy: she likes to give low grades to "motivate" you. Definitely the best English teacher remaining at RM besides maybe Mr. McKenna but no one prolific. You may slightly improve your writing?

Ms Shay, makes the class fun evenif it is an AP Literature course. She tells the best stories and is an athlete and a good teacher and wonderful listener. She's a great role model.
