Nov 18, 2014 Oh, man. Swanson is one of my favorite teachers and is one of the funniest people I've ever met. However, she does spend the first two weeks of school weeding out the kids who don't belong there (who don't work hard). Overall, I LOVE her as a teacher, even though she's extremely difficult.

Oct 13, 2014 Great teacher, extremely funny! She knows how to make sure someone learns. Yes, she has a brutal side, but it turns into a funny side. Flag Rating

Aug 22, 2013 Has a short temper and swears a lot. Yearbook is extremely fun, though (not really because she's the sponsor, however) and a really underrated elective. Can't say much else. Flag Rating

Jul 25, 2011 Aren't teachers supposed to encourage their students to become better writers instead of tearing them down? I can't say that she helped me grow as a writer or strengthen my skills at literary analysis Flag Rating

Dec 13, 2010 Ms. Swanson was one of the most amazing teachers I've ever had. Don't expect to do very well if you don't put any work in; but if you do, you'll learn a lot and get an A (fyi i normally hate reading) Flag Rating

Nov 23, 2010 My writing got worst from this class. She has class favorites and if your not one of them then she doesn't even bother with you. Bad teacher and you learn nothing! Flag Rating

Jun 02, 2009 Took college prep and just so you know, she swears in class, She doesn't really has a syllabus that she follows up with and she'll have papers due when you half expect it. Gives u a set of rules for writing like no using the word "i" or "you" in the paper but besides that, she really doesn't teach. She'll make u do papers and if you dont' do it, she won't accept it even tho it dropped ur grade from a B to failing. Really lenient class but don't expect to learn anything in it. Flag Rating

Nov 07, 2008 Her class is tough, but you will actually learn something ,besides memorizing 20 vocab words and fogetting them the next day like most english classes. I use to hate Shakespeare before this class, but now I dont.. she actually explains what is going on in the play unlike other teachers. She can be mean sometimes, and isn't great with the quiet kids because she is so loud. Yea she swears? Big deal, this isnt kindergarden. Overall a great teacher, but dont expect an easy A, far from it. Flag Rating

Jul 29, 2008 Even though she did have her share of swear words, I believe that she was an excellent teacher. She cares about everyone, no matter what her words migth make you think. DOn't get fooled--If you get her mad, she will treat you in front of the whole class Flag Rating

Oct 28, 2006 She's a good teacher. Strict and demanding, but better to have her than a teacher that can't teach. But if you're too sensitive and cannot take critism well, honestly, toughen up or get out. Flag Rating
