Her tests are either long or difficult, but she really takes the time to explain everything and is a very sweet person; one of my favorite teachers in this school.

She's a pretty tough teacher, and she has favorites. But if you study, and do the review sheets that she gives you, you should do pretty well on her tests. Her review sheets are like a preview of the test.
