I agree with whoever was below me. I graduated in 2003 and her senior English class was one of the best memories I have of high school and she's still the best teacher I ever had.

Wow, you people can't show respect to Dr.Horne.. she was hella funny. She knew how much highschool was a waste of time, so she didn't bother wasting yours. Do your work and you get out alive period.

Can't believe she still works there. Needs to retire asap. This class was a complete waste of time. Sometimes I think she just stuck around for retirement so she could collect future pay checks.

I had her for English 4 back in 1998. She was pretty cool, she let us watch South Park during class on most days. But yeah, she was very blunt and you had to have a thick skin to make it through.

Sarcastic, can hardly speak coherently sometimes. Yells at students for following directions sometimes. Should have retired years ago. Wastes all our time. Wish I took AP.

Here's the deal... she tries to be easy but she doesn't teach us ANYTHING. She's HORRIBLY unclear and sits there insulting her students all day. She's ridiculously sarcastic too.
