Had her for sophmore and honors junior english. Although her class was very boring, she's a very understanding teacher and if you're on her good side grades are easy to come by. You can literally hand in assignments a month late and still get full credit.

Absolute loon. Seriously, she has no idea what she's doing. At least she doesn't care when you submit assignments. Her tests clearly haven't changed since she started teaching and are insanely difficult. Essentially impossible stuff.

She has forced religion onto us. Big no-no Her classes ARE interesting, but she does say ridiculous things, like certain things, "POISON YOUR MIND!"

She is an amazing teacher. I'm not an english person and she made me care about the subject. She wants to get to know her students and truly appreciates those who appreciate her. Truly a gem.

The first day she appears really intimidating. But she's really just a fun-loving teenager inside. She's really sarcastic/funny and entertaining :)

lots of unnecessary work. Never gives above a 95 in the class regardless of how hard you work, which is annoying. She is hilarious and sharp and very well read.

Tough cookie. Very demanding and doesn't give much feedback. Yet the rigorous program makes you more disciplined. I dont feel I learned much English but got a work out instead.

Good prep for journalism, teaches you to turn out low quality trash at an alarming rate to meet unreasonable deadlines. Has a tendency to be patronizing.

She's way overrated -- not much compared to other English teachers (ie. Stansbury). Her lectures are boring and she fails in her attempts to be funny.

Schoenfeld's good. Real good. Some of the things she says are genuinely funny. Also, she speaks really elegantly -- a model english teacher.

Mrs. Schoenfeld is a teacher unlike any other. How many of your teachers can you seriously say have entered the room humming the James Bond theme out loud...

You need to participate in her class to get a good grade. If you don't participate, you better write essays really well and do the hw's and volunteer to go to the board and write up answers.
