Ms. Scott is really nice and not too difficult. She is a great teacher though, and you learn a lot. Has very clear expectations and very understanding.

Ms. Scott is the best English teacher I ever had, hands down. She's a hard grader, but at the same time, you learn a lot from her, so after you're over the initial shock of getting a 2 or 3, you're fine, and you learn a LOT

In her journalism elective, talk to her about your articles and do what she tells you. Do what she thinks is interesting whether it is or not. She's very very nice and understanding though.

She puts her heart and soul into teaching, but that doesn't mean you learn much. A wonderful woman, though.

Such a sweet woman with a very big heart. But don't ever disagree with her! Her way is the only way. She is very helpful and makes it clear what she wants in class and in writing. Thanks Mrs Scott

If you're a male student, you will already be at a loss in her class. I felt like she never even respected my opinions because they were different.

Boys in Ms. Scott's class are at an immediate disadvantage. She can be cool at times, but your grade will suffer if you don't interpret things exactly like her.

Mrs. Scott is like my second mom. Even though I haven't had her as a teacher, she acts more like an advisor to me than my actual advisor. She's helpful, supportive, so enthusiastic and all around the Scott's are a genuinely great family.

Cool lady, but spacey. You have to have her same ideas in order to be correct. If you want to interpret things freely on your own, find a different teacher.

I had Ms. Scott during my Lower and Senior years, and I think she is one of the most versatile teachers in the school. She can go from poetry to nonfiction writing lessons without a glitch. She can be a bit spacey, but going with it is half the fun.

A hard grader, and often spacy. Can be unpleasant if she just isn't your style, but if you guys match, you'll be the happiest person ever. She is awesome and gives you freedom to have your own ideas.

She's nice, but lives in her own microcosm. She's really diorganized, and too close-minded. In order to ever get an honors grade, you have to be thinking exactly what she is, and if you're not she will literally tell you no, your interpretation is WRONG!!

Easiest teacher I've ever had for English. She is a little disorganized though, but she can be interesting and if you're a good writer than it takes no effort to get a 5 or 6.
