She was horrible and didn't know how to properly teach. Told me that I had horrible writing skills and that I would never succeed in college or life. I ended up with two masters degrees and also used those same papers from Senior year at UCF and was told that my writing was excellent and wanted to know who taught me to write. Well, it was Thom Werthman, who was a wonderful teacher at LMHS.
Accused me of cheating on my Senior paper because it was "too good". Had no proof and deducted me anyway.
Perfect example of an old crow of a teacher who should (but can't) be fired.
good preparation for college! she's a really funny teacher, just a little scattered. she talks a lot...don't complain you'll be on her bad side. love her!
She really gets you ready for college, everything she does has a purpose. Listen to her and learn as much as you can and you will do great in college!
She thinks her class is way more important than it is. 16 Essays due on the same day was not fun.
1st 9 weeks was horrible, but after that her class was amazing. She is one of the funniest little teachers I've had. She does play favorites however. I was one of them so it worked out. I love her!
Easy class all you do is sit and read during most classes. Other times she is just b.s. But a great person.
best english teacher @ LM. really prepares u for college, hard as a rock, but she gets u through, and she actually cares if u LEARN anything. very sweet lady. tip: if class gets rough, steer her off topic, u can get her to waste at least 15 mins:)
It's not the easiest English class you will ever take, but Ms. Jackson is definitely one of the best teachers you will ever have. If you ever need help, go ask for it!!! She is one of the sweetest people at Lake Mary.
shes an awesome teacher. I still have yet to get a clockbuster :( I hate our class though. they never shut up...but thats not her fault. I dont think anyone could control these people.
I NEVER found Reta J's class hard. I found her class to be an eye opener for me. The way she presented everything and how she explained everything was helpful for me. Talk to her after class one day. You'll learn something. She's wonderful.
heh..."roll call question of the day: What do u plan to do this summer?" Man ive been pampered so much. Im screwed for next year :(
AHHH! get out of her class while you still can. shes a good teacher, but she is SO hard. once senioritis takes over you'll never pass!
BEST TEACHER. Sure, she get WAY off topic sometimes, but she always wants to teach so we LEARN, not just 'play school'. She's a quiet education reformer.
she really cares about her students. she tries so hard to make us care and read OUTSIDE of school.
Best teacher..I learned so much being in her class. Yes she can get off topic but you always end up doing good work in the end. She is will help anyway she can.
She treats us like we are 1st graders. It's really annoying.
Best teacher I've ever had. I had unfortunate personal circumstances during my senior year and she went above and beyond the call of duty to help me.
I graduated in 2001,& Ms. Jackson is the best! She is challenging, but very helpful, and so nice! I loved her class, & will never meet anyone like her again!
the best teacher in the world for senior english! had i not been lucky enough to get her my senior year, i wouldn't be doing so well in college. great teacher
Mrs. Jackson is such a great teacher. She is always coming up with ways to make my writing better. I am going to have a much easier time at college!
everyone may have a thing against Rita J. but i think she's great.
