I graduated in 2011, if you do not take her classes because you are afraid of working hard shame on you. She made the transition from high school workload to college workload very clear and easy to grasp. She prepared me well for the next step of my academic life and also life in general. Even if you hate English now, take her class. It might not make you love it but you will learn how to study and how to prepare for life in general. You need to know how to speak, read and write properly.

She is extremely stuck up and pretentious and thinks she is the best thing since sliced bread. The way she tests you has nothing to do with what you actually learned in the class and is super off topic and not what you have discussed at all. I regret taking the class more and more everyday.

Very good teacher but why does she only trim her first two finger nails on her write hand that seems against the purpose of triming your nails.

Undoubtedly the best teacher i've ever had. She's also the most intelligent person I know. Her class is difficult, but if you listen to her and do your work you will learn more in a semester than you have in all your years of high school.

My favorite teacher by far. Her lectures are interesting and extremely helpful, and as long as you listen and apply yourself you'll do well in her class. She's very liberal, which I liked as I am too, and very worldly. I swear she knows everything- she's the most intelligent and knowledgeable person I've ever met. Take her class!

My favorite teacher ever!!! Also the smartest person I've ever met. She knows so much and has so much perspective on everything. She really teaches you how to write and a lot about the world and its many conflict areas. She's the only reason why I got a 4 on both my AP lang AND AP world exam. She's super leftwing, while I'm super anarchy,yet we still managed to get along perfectly because we were so blunt and abrasive. I could not speak higher of her. I miss her class so much; everyone needs her

Probably the best english teacher i've ever had. Wish i had her for all of my high school english clases. Despite her class not being the easiest, it was surprisingly enjoyable, and that is coming from a person who does not particularly like english. I highly recommend her.

Sarah Scobell is one of the greatest teachers I have ever had. I'm a junior in college right now, and I still talk about things that she's taught me. You have to be serious about your schoolwork to do well in her class, but if you are, you'll never regret it.

Scobell is a way of life. One of the single most incredible teachers ive ever had. She is BRILLIANT and has a myriad of stories. You will learn a lot in her class without even realizing it.
