Okay newbies I know if you just got Ms Vaughan you may think she is a living hell but stick around and you will get so much out of her class. Out of any teacher you will have she will help you with college the most. She interprets english so well and you'll learn to love it.

I LOVE Ms. Vaughan. Definitely one of the best teacher I've ever had. I know her class may seem annoying and filled with busy work, but the things you will learn from this woman (not relating to school/the curriculum at all) are inspiring. I've learned so much from her about life and love and have become a better person because of it. You'll dislike her class at times, but when you look back on it, you'll miss it dearly--I promise!

MS VAUGHAN! This woman is one of the only teachers at MCHS that is actually interested in her students. Because she is way passionate about what she teaches, you become passionate about it too. I looked forward to her class every day. Although a bit hard, her class is DEFINITELY worth taking!! VERY RECOMMENDED

Ms. Vaughan is by far the best teacher I have ever had. She has taught me so much in her class and makes English fun! She takes time to get to know her students and is also funny. Although her class is really hard, as long as you keep up with the homework and spend A LOT of time on your essays then you can get an A. Also, she offers so much extra credit so take advantage of it!! She has a passion for what she teaches and everyone I know who had her loves her!!

Basically, just be on her good side (can't stress this enough) and you will do well! She is a wonderful lecturer, and I feel like I learned a pretty good amount throughout the year. Yes, she can be annoying, but just as long as you try your hardest and do what she says, you should be fine. Also, pay attention to her random facts because they often end up as extra credit on quizzes and tests.

If you are tardy you pay a dollar do a dance or detention.She is very vague on her directions and very stressful to have for your first year. I literally cried for the first week of her classes. She takes some getting used to and its hard to get an A at first due to only having a small number of points.
