I was soooo scared of her the first couple of weeks of school because she calls on people who aren't raising there hands and she can be a little condesending. But she really is a great teacher!

Greatest teacher at the school. If you're not annoying or rude or immature she will love you. She is not an easy teacher but that is what will help you learn. I wish I could have her again.

I can't even explain how much I learned from her.... as much as I (and we) complained about her being mean, hard, etc., it was pretty enjoyable too. I'll miss that class.

English 2H was amazing. All of that Hero's Journey Carl Jung stuff has ruined my life but I'm a better person for it. She may embarrass students but it'll help you later in life.

Needs to realize that she has a job as a teacher; that means showing up for work 5 days a week. Nice person, tough grader considering she's not there half the time.

It's hard to learn something when your teacher doesn't attend class. She leads students to believe that she's smart, but she just expounds on old philosophies.
