I took her English classes my sophomore and junior years way back in '97 and '98. So I can't say how she's doing now. All I can say is, looking back, I appreciate how much she cared about her work. I used to be the kid that sat in the back of the class, and she would always pick on me to answer questions. I thank her now for encouraging this shy, quiet student to speak up, to have courage, to work hard, and, of course, to understand proper grammar (you're great, Mrs. Seibel! - your student)

Shes not a bad teacher and she used to really care for her students shes just lost hope with all the failures. She scared me almost straight to death by telling me i had to know what i wanted to do before college and that college was not a place to mess around in or find your self in and she used to rant alot about how everything has gone down hill i believe she was an excellent teacher and i believe she can be she just needs hope!

I Absolutely adore Ms. Seibel. There was a time where I stopped going to school or caring and I never felt she gave up on me. She pulled me aside and told me I was capable of so much more. She makes you not only a better student, but a better person

She is passionate about learning and English. Sure, it's a difficult class, that should be expected. I love the class discussions. Other teachers just want the answer, but she wants a discussion about why the answer is what it is, which is better IMO

To all those who HATE Ms.Seibel Ms.Seibel was my AVID teacher all four years that I was in high school. I was not her favorite, but I wasn't on her bad side. she made me the college student that I am today. My English essays are always the best written essays in the class. And as a FRESHMAN, she filled my essays with every correction in the book, but I didn't get offended when she showed me how to write to my full potential. respect is what this teacher deserves. Ms.Seibel is a great teacher.

Mrs. Seibel is a tough teacher, I'm not going to lie. She gives tons of essays and you will end up reading a ridiculous amount of books by the end of the year. But this is an honors level class that prepares you well for college. Do her assignments in a timely manner and you will be golden for the year. Participate, participate, participate. She knows that the students who want to learn will speak up. Don't be afraid to offer your opinion in a class discussion! She may get in a bad mood from time to time, b

Not a very great teacher; I did not learn anything new in her class. It may be easy, but it's a complete waste of your year. Seibel is extremely opinionated and lets discussions run too long.

She really cares about her students and wants them to succeed in life. Can come across as a bit radical/overwhelming if you're not willing to debate with her. Still, oustanding!
