Did you know that she marks you down for writing the date wrong? For Example 1/1/15 What she wants is January 1st, 2015

The class posed little difficulty to one of my stature and prestige, but I could see no peer of mine having such ease as my own. To be frank, she is difficult and unreasonable to a most terrible degree. Now of course someone who holds no respect for me can expect none in return, and as a result I made it quite a firm point to take nothing away from her class. It was all a waste of time, really.

Awful experience, worst teacher ever. Forces constant homework, weekly quizes and tests, and regular essays. If you submit anything not in her specific format (which is given in a confusing, unclear manner) she will mark you down a significant amount. She expects more from you than what she gives you, and tests are often on material not sufficiently covered in class. Contrary to what she says, she only cares about her favorite students, and could care less about the rest of us.

Prepare for homework, homework, homework. Memorizing worthless facts by studying notes every day takes up time that I could spend being productive. Going into this class I already knew every single bit of useful information which I "learned", everything else was a worthless waste of time. She forces memorization on facts that will be less helpful to the average adult than knowing the chemical formulas for photosynthesis and cellular respiration, and is all around difficult.

She's a nice woman with good intentions, but she's just not the best teacher for our learning environment. She has clear favorite students, grades them less harshly, and compliments them constantly and points them out individually. Her method of teaching writing random phrases on a board, watching a video, or reading off a piece of paper. Explanations are unclear and confusing, and she often overturns opinions of students, completely ignores us, although she teaches us to voice opinions.

She gives you so many papers & thinks we understand when she explains them , & she gets frustrated with people's questions . I think she might be bipolar , because she randomly lashes out on students , usually for no reason .

She definitely has favorites. She loses papers and says you're responsible for them. She says one thing and completely contradicts herself in the next sentence. She talks about feelings but doesn't respect ours. I always fell asleep too.

mrs. lighty is overall a nice teacher but she needs to be more clear on the due dates/assignments. She doesn't give any tests or use textbooks and you watch a lot of videos. She is easy if you just listen and discuss topics about whatwere learning

Mrs. Lighty is the nicest teacher I have ever met. She is kind and will do anything to help out a student. She might give out a lot of homework or not be clear about due dates, but she is very knowledgeable about teen health and her class is enlightening and useful to everyone who keeps an open mind. Her annual peer helping retreat is a magical experience that can change your life forever. She actually cares about her students, and when she asks how they are, she listens to their response.

Screw Ms.Lighty. She gives tons of hw and never explains anything clearly. The class is more like a torment rather than a learning experience. No one knows what she wants. Her class is extremely boring and I fall asleep every single time. Worst teacher ever!!!!!

Ms. Lighty truly cares about her teaching and tries her best to make her class fun. However, your grade is basically decided by reflection essays and there are 5 in the semester-long course.

She does pick favorites and goes against what she says.She interrupts and insults people.If you don't have enough emotion, you get a bad grade. I've a pencil to my eye whenever she talks, too bad I have glasses.

Mrs. Lighty is looking for honest & open minds & hearts. If you're too scared to give her verbal feedback, try opening up to her in the journal; she values quality over quantity. If you can do all that & behave you're set. (;

she clearly favors some of her students and lets them get away with things such as not dressing and still gives them an A and puts them in the front row of performances.

useless, completely useless by far one of the worst teachers I have encountered in the school, a few people in her class don't even do anything and still get the top grades. favoritism in the extreme, class is easy though.

You have to become one of her "Favorite Students", because then you can slack off a lot and still get an A
