Apr 14, 2007 It's hard to imagine that some who works me to the bone could be sooo cool. I know the AP will be a joke, after having her. I'm sad that I'm the last class to have her though. She's classic. Flag Rating

Sep 01, 2006 Bures is my hero--plain and simple. She loves her students, and I am going to miss her when she finally retires after this year. Working hard is her philosophy, and it seems to work... Flag Rating

May 08, 2006 I think Dr. Bures is perhaps one of the best and most devoted teachers out there. She takes time to prepare her lessons, and though some of the assignments may seem ridiculous, they help a whole lot. Flag Rating
