AP Language is a pretty easy class. There is essentially no homework other than weekly vocabulary. Work hard and she will like you. She does not give clear directions and is very sarcastic, however. I felt like she prepared us well for the exam, I got a 5 and I don't know of anybody who got lower than a 3.

Pretty easy class and you learn a lot however it's not really learning english as much as learning about life, she's very focused on the real world which is awesome but you pay for the lack of english later, also extremely slow grader

Mrs. Stafford always seemed to have favorites. it also feels like she is always pushing her political views onto us. I know it is true because parents have complained and she is always denying her political views.

I always felt that she was grading essays according to favoritism and bias. Plus, all we did in class was busy work and never learned from it. Not exactly the best English class, but it's decent.

A super easy class, but a complete waste of time. Stafford is without a doubt one of the most annoying teachers I've ever had, and plays blatant favoritism.

AP test was very easy because a few weeks before it she actually decided to start teaching. 3/4ths of this class was a waste of time. too much time spent on unrelated subjects

Has an obsession of getting respect and appreciation from her students. For her to become a better teacher she needs to be less sarcastic and more straightforward. She is smart, but hides it at times.

I feel she has her favorites, but what teacher doesn't. She is just waay more open about it. She is judgemental. I don't particularly like her, but she is a good teacher. Needs to follow dress code.

As all teachers she has great days and not so great days. I hear she used to give a lot of projects. Thank goodness that she does not anymore. I like how she lets us share our own opinions.

I think it helps to have a good class with Mrs. Stafford. She can be fun or evil depending on who is in your class. She's great though

Why is she listed as an English teacher? She dosent prepare for the APtest, buries student with busywork and rants about "feminist" issues, sitting in that class you'd think she taught womens studies.

I was probably the laziest boy in that class, and I still had a good time on occasion. Sometimes the coolest teacher in the world, sometimes the worst. Very opinonated, but not in a bad way.

I had her last year and i didn't have fun in the class. Now that i look back on it, the class wasn't that bad. It could have worse, but everyone complains when you're a particular class. She's a good teacher. Thanks.
