I have Ms. Thomas two times a day, and I'm fine with it. She's very nice and very funny. However, she's a terrible teacher. Thank god that the other class she's the teacher for she doesn't do anything.

Ms. Thomas is verbally disorganized, ineffective in inspiring learning, very insecure, and almost ruined 7th grade for my student. The worse teaching experience of my student's life. Unwilling to receive parent feedback or even have a parent meeting.

She is a very funny and strange person. She doesn't really teach anything new in film analysis but it is a very easy and fun sometimes boring class.

I had her for a class called, "Film Analysis", which is a class for basically watching television. We went over a lot of parts of the plot graph, but I already knew that from my other teacher, Mr. Romines. But back to Mrs. Thomas, she was strange but funny. She always made jokes and made everyone laugh. Rarely, we got onto other subjects like, math, English, and science. Sometimes inappropriate, but still a great teacher. But someone of my friends in other classes, with her, say they hate her.

She is funny at the expense of students who aren't her favorite. She didn't take the time to get to know students, and she wasn't very understanding at all. She was a black and white person, no grey.
