Literally hate her. She is so selfish and full of herself. all youll ever hear is her accomplishments and basically how perfect she sees herself as.

She is one of the most amazing teachers I will ever have. She makes you want to strive better to be a better writer! She is very intimidating though, I adore and respect her very much. She has taught me a lot and I'm really sad to not have her as a teacher anymore :/

Yes, she may be intimidating but that only pushes you to work harder. Her class is amazing and she is definitely one of a kind. I have the utmost respect for her.

She is the greatest English teacher ever. Junior year is a lot of work, but take her senior year because it is worth it and it makes college english way easier.

Beats you over the head with grammar, but really funny, I've learned a lot. If you don't like Thoreau and Emerson, don't talk at all 2nd quarter, just don't.
