Plays favorites in the class. A lot of the students have no idea what the heck she is looking for when she grades essays, papers, anything, really. The people who belong in AP english, didn't get in, most of those who got in, do not belong in there. She recommended a lot of cheaters, people who say nothing in class, very biased. She may be understanding, but not when she's grading and recommending people.

Very nice teacher. Problem is, she does not know how to grade her students. For almost three marking periods in a row, she gave an 90 as her highest grades out of all the clases. Really downfall of her teaching.

An awesome teacher who truly cares about her students and makes you work hard. She is definitely one of my favorite teachers ever and she made english really enjoyable. But she is a pretty tough grader.

She's a really awesome teacher and knows what she's talking about. You can always go up to her if you need help with anything. However, she's a really tough grader and definitely plays favorites. Other than that, I find her class extremely interesting and fun (:

She is a wonderful teacher. She helps you if you need help, but wont baby you if you just dont want to work. She can be strict with grading but is never unfair. Anyone who says otherwise obviously isnt doing what they're supposed to. She makes the class fun. She chooses interesting books for us to read, and shows us movie adaptations too. I really enjoy her class.

I had like a 95+ avg in English and when I went to her class it stayed between 80 & 85. She's too hard & doesnt try to help you succeed in her class.
