Sometimes she expects the students to teach themselves. She tends to go off track and talk about her personal life too often. She also expects her students to just know everything. I mean, no you shouldn't have to hold the students hands through the year, but sometimes I wish teachers couldn't post things online so they have an excuse to tell us in class. Sometimes she can be nice but sometimes she is rude for absolutley no reason. I personally thought her class was harder then it should be.

I personally think mrs Burkett is a fantastic woman. She is always there to help me out when I'm having trouble. Other classmates of mine say that I'm her favorite, but I say no, she has no favorites, she likes everybody equally. I appreciate her vast mind that knows everything about American Literature and I also appreciate her sarcastic but comical jokes in class. Thank you for all you do Mrs. Burkett! Love ya

Rude and sarcastic. Mrs. Burkett takes pride in making herself seem superior to her students. She truly be lieves that she is the smartest person around. When students ask valid and good questions she responds by making fun of and embarassing the student for not knowing the answer. It has gotten to the point where students dont ask questions because the fear being ridiculed. The tests/exams are much harder and more specific then the reviews.

Worst teacher i have ever had! The nastiest, most sarcastic, belittling excuse for a teacher..She would single out students to take her anger out on..The entire class was a lesson about her famiy that left students unprepared for her impossible tests

Burkett's the worst teacher ever. Can't teach for her life, then at the end of the marking period tries to squeeze in two tests an essay and a midterm packet. Poor timing, poor planning, mean and sarc

A completely disrespectful, rude teacher who finds it necessary to make an example of everyone, to make them look bad, and to make herself look superior. Good teacher though.

Possibly the worst teacher ever. Thanks to her, I missed out on a good Honors English education this year. Santoro would have been 100 times better. Now I'm completely unprepared for junior yr English
