The secret to doing well in her essays: Write like you're high. As long as it SOUNDS like you really KNOW what you're talking about, you're fine. DOn't bother reading her books.
She's very intelligent and her passion for English literature is refreshing. Her essay grading is a bit hard, but overall, she's a nice lady, and a great senior year teacher.

She cares nothing about content- only structure, grammer, and format!
